I have narrowed it down. I am going to buy another Rhino. Question is, which one. I know the 660. But the 700 has a few extra goodies. EFI, Disc Brakes in the rear etc... But, it will cost me more. $1000-$1500 more. So which way do you think I should go. I can buy a lot of goodies for the 660 with $1500. I know the EFI would be nice for sure.... Let me know what you think guys. Im open to either one. I have owned a EFI bike before. Was nice. But I know the 660s are tough too... Whats the word? Are upgrades any cheaper on the 700? Thanks

Clay I'd go 700 if it was me. Less dust in the cab, stronger rear-diff mounts, 4-wheel discs, relocated air-box, better exhaust, improved center-drive gear, the cases are more robust, and I'm sure some other stuff I've forgotten about. Put a controller on it, not a Dyna-Tek, and ride!!! Either is a great choice tho!!!

EFI, 4 wheel disk breaks, bigger axles, better cooling system........ If it was me I would go with the 700.

I would look for a low miles ,well taken care for machine for a killer price. If I found that in a 2007 660 I would buy it. I would be looking harder for a 700 though. I like my 660, but the rear brakes and the air filter under the hood for a more quiet ride tips the scales in the 700's favor with me. 2cents

scratch

There are plenty of performance parts. The only problem is you need a EFI programmer and some talent to get them to run right.

i know its diffrent in a rhino but the group i ride with 1 guy has a 700 grizzley and his wife rides a 660 grizzley and the 660 seems to be unstopable it has gobs of lowend power and she hardley ever puts it 4 wheel drive and walks right through all kinds of deep thick gooey mud the 700 seem like most of its power is on the top end and it revs a lot faster just seem like two totaly diffrent powerbands

I think think the 700 is a not as loud in the cab. Now as far as power... I dont know. I know my 660 was not lacking. At least with the mods I made. I would get it...

The 660 has more Horsepower stock than the 700. (40.9 vs. 40.3). The 700 is geared slightly lower. Overall Performance is pretty equal.

+ the 700 is fuel injected the 660 uses a carb. if i remember right. Eat

IMO, if youre looking to buy most anything go for the newest you can afford, all the brands upgrade things every year.

yes big-r you are right but since the 660 model has been out for a couple of years longer more aftermarket parts are available ,but you are right there are morethan plenty of parts for the 700.and clay the 700 model rhino is worth the extra money for what you get
