Montana a little pricey

I like the Montana but hate to spend that much on something I'll only use a couple times a month at most.

Anyone have a less expensive unit they're happy with?

What GI Joe said

I paid $1200 for a XT350 in fine shape. Kick start and dual carbs to sync.
Paid $1800 for a XT225, 10 yrs newer with estart and single carb. I like the XT225 much more.
