Default 2008 Honda TRX700XX input and value

2008 Honda TRX700XX
I was offered one of these with very low hours, (that was bought new in 2010) as part of a trade. I am looking for another utility/4x4 ATV so if I do the trade it may just get sold.

Anyone had any personal experience with these quads?
And any idea of real life sell value? I have looked on CL and other sites but the prices seem to be all over.
Are the 700's mild mannered to just cruise around on if wanted?
Thanks!

You can find them between 4-4500 if you look long enough. People ask up to 7k but I don't believe they sell for that. They are no where near as popular as the Raptor 700 but I want one. The independant rear suspension makes me want it. Honda motor and reliability- IRS- 700- would make an awesome trail machine. I've been watching these for about a year. Maybe you get it in trade then get hooked on it?

I remember seeing brand new leftover models on showroom floors listed for $4300 + tax and title a few years back....they were just never big sellers, so the stealerships were basically trying to give them away. I almost bought one for my girlfriend to ride, but she didn't want to get rid of her Wolverine (she liked the CVT better than the manual shift).

Honda has a huge following in their utility quad line, and also has a good following with their sport quads...the 700xx was just an odd mix between the two that never really caught on. They would have been much better off offering a solid rear axle model to be more competitive with the Raptor. The engine is decent in stock form, and makes respectable power with bolt-ons, but it's main competitor (the Raptor) is capable of much more. So it never got big in the drag racing scene. For trail cruising, it's hard to beat though...comfortable, great ground clearance, and enough HP to keep the adrenaline up.
