I'd put my money on a Grizz 700 with EFI and redesigned suspension. Platform sharing is the name of the game. Just like they did with the raptor and grizz in the past. It's how they keep the costs lower than that of say the new Bombardier.
At least ATV's are easy to sell in the wantads. For what we put them through, I think hold value pretty good. Trade ins will kill ya though. When the new Grizz comes out, I'll wait for a minimum of a full year before I thought about one. So maybe a 2008 model. After 3 years on my Grizz, I'll be ready for a change.
Your dealer is just guessing but it's probably a pretty safe bet. Yamaha has to keep up with the big boys or they are going to lose their ass. Why would anybody want to buy a 660 Grizzly when all the other dealers have 700-800s with EFI for about the same price.
I would bet money that it will be a 686 with EFI.
Maybe if they change the POS front bumper and beef up the rail on the rear rack I would consider it.
