I would have to guess that you would not be disappointed in the performance
of the MXZ 670.  I ride with a guy who had a ZR700.  This sled was a great performer.   But up to l the 90mph range I could run neck and neck with him on my MXZ 583.  After 90 mph he would pull away. The 670 will only be stronger.  I guess it must have convinced him, since the ZR700 is gone and there is a new MXZ in his garage.

Ive got a chance to get 97 Mxz 670 this year.
I was wondering if anyone has rode, aZR700 and could compare it to a
670.
I really want better suspension this year, without losing all that low
end power of the big twin.
 Any comments welcome.

 Ive ridden both the ZR 700 and MXZ 670. Since I own the ZR I'm somewhat
bias, but they are both great sleds. Ive put over 7000 Mi on my ZR 700
without
anything but preventative maintenance, I plan to ride it again this year.
If you
are thinking of a MXZ 670 (97) your talking new, if your talking the ZR
your talking
used. The MXZ w/10" of travel obviously has a better suspention of the two
for
the big bumps, but for smooth flat trail the ZR can't be touched in
cornering ability.
They both have low end tourqe which is great for trail riding, the MXZ
definately
excels when you hit big bumps. I can ride just as fast in the bumps on
either sled
however it takes a lot more work and effort to ride the ZR (in the bumps).
 I also own a ZR440 96 and this sled loves big bumps, you just can't go
slow
through them. Power is phenomenal all midrange and killer top end power.
Green or Yellow it doesn't matter you need to think about exactly what
kind
of riding you do. Don't a race machine to do casual trail riding, you will
be dissapointed
in your performance. Buy what makes you happy not everyone else.
