Best ATV Companies

The Top Ten

1 Honda Honda Motor Co., Ltd. is a Japanese public multinational conglomerate corporation primarily known as a manufacturer of automobiles, aircraft, motorcycles, and power equipment.

Polaris has a hole lot more electronics and power them Honda but Honda will just keep on going Polaris will go for a long time but will loose a hole lot of power

I grew up on Polaris's and the first was great 350 4x4 until it went into some water. Then the problems started. The second Polaris was a sportsman 500, great bike until you try to Creek ride. I say if you plan on light usage around a farm or ranch Polaris are fast and ride well. However that being said my brother bought a Honda foreman and that bike has just been abused by him. It still runs which is a miracle if you have seen what my brother does to it. The Polaris's I've owned have usually had to get a new belt with belt housing every year if we are riding a lot. Those Hondas on the other hand just keep going. The Hondas don't have the speed or the power but does that really matter when it's pulling a Polaris back because a burnt belt. I've been there way to many times. My next bike will be a Honda.

Had a Chinese ATV that kept getting stuck And had to constantly fix it, not a single issue with the foreman 500. Plus we use it at our relay for life event every year as a hay ride and it the kids around like its nothing

When I voted it moved to number 1! Anyway I have a 250ex... Starts every time with no problem. Fun to drive and easy as well. It is what I am learning on and I absolutly love it. Nothing wrong with kawi or suzuki but I think honda has them all by a little bit with there "bulletproofness" if you know what I mean. Highly recommend them!

2 Polaris

polaris is great and you will fall in love fast with it but honda will just keep on going

Honda and Polaris are close but Polaris beets Honda by a slight bit

I've owned polaris for years and am still satisfied with them

I have a 2018 Sportsman XP 1000 it is buy far the best ATV you can get I Love.

3 Yamaha

yamaha is great I would say its third first Honda second Polaris Third Yamaha
but they are great atv

I've had the same Yamaha Moto 4; 200 since 1984 it still fires and runs dependably with the first button push. The machine has been through 3 generations of kids learning to ride. Thousands of hours on it. Dealership maintenance since bought off the showroom floor. Only parts to replace have been expected, tires, air filters, brakes. But parts are becoming harder and harder to find. I still get people try to buy it from me, but cannot part with it. However, I am exploring purchasing a new one. I truly hope the new models provide for such great adventures and last half as long.

I've had a Yamaha I personally would let it higher because I've done everything possible to it but nothing's in Mortal or something around it I've drove through freaks but whenever I got a Honda I drove through the same Creek same high tide and I've taught about 48 kids to drive the same quad but nothing I've drowned it but it keeps going whenever I was like 10 years old my parents got me a Yamaha and I still have to this day it's red and I write it on like special occasions like I ride it through mud checking it mudding you're taking up pills are taking it up to New York before I've had it got stolen

You don't have the best unless you down nestled into a yamaha they are built to be an extension of you. Sitting on a high horse bouncing gives you less control. Also if you know about atvs then you would also know that to have the choice between locking front and limited slip differential is important to the EXPERIENCED rider as well as how you engage it then you know yamaha is the best. No question. If your a teen please save your comments for teeny bopper bikes.

4 Can-Am

Excellent ride, super power, akin to a cadilac crossed with a wild animal. My only issue was a belt worn from plowing with the bike. Its super capable but not as utility based as my older manual shifting Honda. With good rubber its nearly unstoppable.

Driven a lot of Honda atvs bulit after 2001. Most of them if not all had to be fixed for one reason or another. After that got a ranger 6x6 for around the house some issues not much. Not long after that my family pickup some can-am atvs. Little to no issues with at all. However Honda had issues with the Speedo display, cv shaft, wiring setup. So far the top atv and side by side companies are Polaris, Can-am, Yamaha, and arctic cat.

I own a can am outlander 570 it’s very fast for a 570 goes just over 70 mph pulls a wheelie no problem fantastic handling. No squeaks or loose bolts very smooth ride very comfortable ergonomics are perfect sweeet v-twin sound comes with premium aluminum wheels and speed-sensitive 3-mode power steering. Can’t say enough good about this atv. Although in the summer if you’re wearing shorts some heat does come off the transmission on your left leg. It the winter it’s a plus because it keeps you warm. All around extremely impressive atv better than my neighbors Polaris 570 and Yamaha 700 and Kawasaki 750

Rock solid. Have had an Outlander 2up and Commander S X. Both great machines.
I watch how other's ride their machines without a care and then complain because something breaks. Everyone remember no matter what make they are all of them are mechanical and have a breaking point.

5 Arctic Cat

Arctic cat is good they are not the best but they are a good value for what you pay

19 years of service for my 2001arctic cat 300 4x4 and still going strong. Trail riding hunting, and winter plow vehicle. Ad the only thing I had to replace was the tires, oil, and spark plug. I 100%will purchase Textron/ Arctic Cat again.

I love my Arctic Cats. Please ditch the Textron name, it’s not as cool and catchy.

2001 Arctic no problem a workhorse took me through the Wisconsin swamps.


Excellent quality and price

Bought a zforce new in 2015 never had a probably yet with 6000KM on it so far

They are in the top of sell in Canada, Russian and Sweden...

CF Moto is getting better with years. I love the new C Force 550cc 2016. Excellent quality and very good value for money. I advice all atv riders to try it they wont regret.

7 Kawasaki

kawasaki is good they are not the best but they are a good value for what you pay

I got a 2007 kfx 90 it is really hard to kick start I am also used to starting a ktm 65 which is easy to start

Have two brute forces 300 and the 650 fun machines better then ole piece of polaris, never own another one of those no good for nothing machines

I want one for my 16th! The ultimate motocross bike!

8 Suzuki Suzuki Motor Corporation is a Japanese multinational corporation headquartered in Minami-ku, Hamamatsu.

2013 KQ 500 - solid machine, diff-lock for extra traction and reverse on the lever makes it easy to plow snow with.

2018 750 runs like a champ every time. 3000kms in 1 year. Others I ride with are mostly Can-Am and Honda, they always seem to be in the shop

I am the original owner of two King Quad 700s. Both had an excessive battery drain problem. Suzuki knew about the problem and even issued a Technical Service Bulletin about it. But, they WOULD NOT fix my two Suzukis, even though they had a fix. I will never buy another Suzuki!

Work's hard but rather have a honda.


I was able to drive this monster, in different locations. I'm very surprised of its possibilities.

It is a real ATV. Easy drive, low consumption of fuel, unique parameters.

The only ATV you will ever need.

The best ATV I ever seen

10 KTM

Haven't rode one of there quad but I bet there good I have a ktm 125 bike

Love my 525xc the best (stock) ready to race quad! Add an Ohlins steering damper and it rides like a Cadillac!

Ktm has always been faster

They are the best

The Contenders

11 AlphaSports

I have a cobra exc50 I race on it's super fast

The best

12 Kymco

Great ride for the price! Have 5 kids, and they can't wear it out.

Kymco = Crap

Awesome bikes

Great build, Excellent price point. Worth it.

13 Bombardier

Why is this here, Can-Am is already on the list. They're the same company.

Maybe not the best, but bombardier ATV's are super tough and great to ride. my #1

Ds650x is the best atv ewer made.

Same as can amm

14 Linhai

Trash atv. Bought one and broke as soon. As I got home it didn't even turn on. Worst atv brand. don't buy Chinese brand atvs.

I had one for about ten months and it is excellent I had to spend money but it was 14 years old and the people who had it before me did not take good care of it. I had the Linhai Rustler 260 and I worked very hard with it but did not abuse it. I love this bike the reason I sold it is I thought I would like a baja bug more selling it was the worst mistake I ever made.

Is the worse machine I had. Broke down in 6months as the clutch fell to pieces, a lot to fix and used 3,times and same problem and informed not uncommon for clutch to break down.

Very good quality compare with cery good price

15 TaoTao

They are not horrible the company gets a bad rap because most people think the company is some unreliable cheap Chinese company which it isn't it is Chinese but they make very decent ATV's and Quad's the only thing that I don't like is that there way to expensive they should sell them under $200 but the company gets a bad rap if I had the chance I would be happy to be sponsored by them for ATV racing I would be happy having them sponsor me I ride mostly honda's and a few kawasaki's I like Kawasaki's but you know what my favorite brand is yes I might get hate for it but it's Tao-Tao because they get such a bad rap so I would watch what you say about them before you speak there 13 not 20 so I would keep quite because Tao-Tao is a very decent good company making Quad's just need to lower the price.

Horrible machine but probably the best Chinese quad.

Great fast adult ATV's.

If you hate someone buy them a tao tao I had a 2017 and every week it was up for repair they are the worst atvs

19 Odes

I fink fhey r greate biks and have god mony

20 TGB

Just got me a TGB BLADE 520i EFI/EPS.
Offroading like a king!
Rock solid and reliable machine with loads of power. Should easily be top 5 in the world.

The fact that TGB is sold mostly in Europe is the reason why it's so low down in the list, it doesn't get the American and Canadian votes. Otherwise it would be in the top 3. Despite this: The TDL Blade is an animal made for the North. Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish forests above the polar circle are its home. Rock-solid engineering and reliability for life!

TGB is not in the top 10? LOL...

TGB should be in the TOP 5 manufacturers, they are high-end atvs. VERY reliable! Good standard equipment. I do recommend it over Polaris or Honda!

21 John Deere

Don't know why John Deere are here, they don't make ATV's

My dad had a John Deere and that thing would be able to go through anything but YES John Deere does sell atvs


22 Italika

is not the best but haves an average performanceand its the cheapest

23 Baja

Had an old baja 90, I used it and abused for a while when I was younger and never had a problem. Couple plastics broke but that was our own fault and brake stopped but we just never bothered to fix anything. The engine always ran good some how. One day in the winter it had been sitting for a while and not started for a while and we went up there and it started just like that.

24 Jaguar
25 Coolster

"Great product, used for many years and goes VERY fast."

I have 2 coolers, I think they are 90cc. they are really fast at top speed and good for mudding and trail riding. they have never let me down
