I like mine, had it since new. Goes reasonably well for what it is, handles OK too. Very comfortable and very flexible. Great in snow, ice, mud and floods. The prop shaft is renowned as a weak point (search the thread). They are about 700 for the parts. There are companies that are repairing them now though (since mine went) Some people dont like the brakes, but mine have not let me down. As you say, it's different.....
