Price is probably the most important
factor to consider before you purchase an atv. Most ATV's range in price
from $3000 U.S. to $7000 U.S. Also keep in mind that many dealerships carry
used ATV's that are trade ins. Other places to look for a lower priced all
terrain vehicles are real and virtual bulletin boards, e-bay, newspapers and
As a rule of thumb, the more options
the ATV has, the more expensive it will be. A four-wheeler with 4x4, which is
heavy and more utilitarian, can be $1000 to $3000 more expensive than the same
model without 4x4. If you need the vehicle to efficiently push and pull objects
than you need a 4X4. Conversely, ATVs that are used for drag racing can cost
quite a bit of money, even though they are faster and lighter vehicles. This is
usually because many of them are very sporty and flashy.
Part of the process of learning how
to buy an ATV is deciding on the vehicles intended use. For instance if you
are looking for an agile vehicle that can turn on a dime and that is light
enough for racing, the heavy-duty Yamaha Blaster 4X4 (that is used for pushing
hay bales and snow) is probably not for you. You would be looking instead at
purchasing a lighter, more nimble vehicle such as the Yamaha Raptor or the
Kawasaki Lakota or Mojave. These vehicles suit recreational activities such as
hopping dunes or racing through unusual landscapes.
If you are looking for a more
industrial weight vehicle that can tow equipment or push snow or dirt, then
a 4x4 model such as the Artic Cat, the Polaris and the Yamaha Banshee will
probably do the job. If you are intending to buy a 4x4 ATV then count on
spending more than $5000.
If you are buying an ATV for
recreational purposes than you might want to consider what kind of vehicle
best suits your terrain. For driving over dunes and sands you would need a
lighter 4X4 such as the Suzuki 250 Quad racer. 4X4's are best for hunting,
fishing and slogging through swamps, treading up and down hills, and crusading
through brush and forest. The Yamaha Banshee or Warrior is well suited to these
kinds of terrains.
Rider experience is also a factor to
consider before you buy an ATV. 4X4's don't suit beginning or young drivers as
well as the cheaper atvs with two-stroke engines.
There is plenty of information on the
Internet about how to buy an ATV. All you need to do is visit the sites of
major manufacturers of ATV's such as Kawasaki, Polaris, Suzuki and Yamaha to
thoroughly research, which all terrain vehicle is best for you.
