Buying my first CF Moto in Richmond, VA
« on: November 17, 2015, 03:06:25 pm »
Hello everyone!  I am brand new to the forum and to the CF Moto world!  I'm seriously considering buying my first Moto any day now.  I've been looking at 2-up atv's and had pretty much made up my mind to get a Can Am until the other day.  I walked into a local dealership to check out their stock and the sales rep introduced me to a 2015 CF 500 HO!  i was blown away by all of the upgrades that are standard on this atv!  After many hours of research, I can't find tons of reviews or info on them.  What are your honest opinions about this mid level quad?  Most of what I've read have been from sources outside the US.  I have a Honda currently and grew up riding those.  I'm almost sold on this 500 HO from CF Moto.  It seems like a steal at the price compared to the comparable Can Am.  To get these upgrades on the Can Am would cost thousands more!  Any feedback you guys can give would be much appreciated!

Great solid machines, amazing support from the Manufacturer, and a standard warranty that cant be beat.

I have several customers who beat the snot out of theirs, and love them. The EPS is a great feature, and CFMoto just released a full line of accessories that will be available first quarter of 2016.

Thanks emersonsc!  I appreciate the feedback.  If you don't mind me asking, where are you located?  Because of the lack of popularity of the brand here in VA, some people are telling me to avoid the moto's.  But to be honest, I'm finding more negative feedback about the popular name brands than I am about the moto's.  I am curious if anyone has any feedback on the hp of the 500 HO...I know it's approximately 38hp, but i'm wondering if that is adequate for 2 riders.  We're not doing anything crazy, just mostly trail rides and we won't be doing any speed races.  I'm mainly looking for reliability at a reasonable price.
As always, thanks for all the feedback!

38hp is right there with the 500 sportsman HO. We have a 500 sportsman touring in our group. I have rode it and the power is good enough not to have any complaints on lack of power. It keeps up with most all the other riders out there even two up with steep hills.
2013 Z6 Trail
Iron Baltic skid plates
UE Boom Speaker mount
RZR 800 Shocks
Mostly stock trail riding
25g. Rollers and A1

2016 Outlander max 570
Too new for mods yet

One of my customers who purchased a 500 HO is a big guy. Him and his wife ride it all the time and I've yet to hear a complaint. I know when he rides by himself hes said hes got it going over 60mph.

I'm located in central Michigan.
