The Top Ten
1 Honda Honda is a renowned Japanese corporation known for its diverse line-up of products, including ATVs. Their ATVs are recognized for their durability and performance, making them a popular choice among enthusiasts.

I grew up on Polaris ATVs, and the first one was a great 350 4x4 until it went into some water. Then the problems started. The second Polaris was a Sportsman 500, a great bike until you try to ride in creeks. I say if you plan on light usage around a farm or ranch, Polaris bikes 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 bikes I've owned have usually needed 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 of a burnt belt? I've been there way too many times. My next bike will be a Honda.

2 Polaris Polaris Industries, an American manufacturer, is famous for its high-quality ATVs. They offer a wide range of models, from utility to sport, that are well-regarded in the industry.

I bought a Polaris 4-wheeler back when they first started making 4-wheelers. My friends laughed at me until they rode it. Then they said it was too smooth and it doesn't feel like a 4-wheeler because of its independent suspension. And then the other companies came out with their own version of independent suspension. Soon my friends called Polaris the Cadillac of 4-wheelers. I've owned my own Honda, Yamaha, and Kawasaki growing up and rode other brands, but I will stick with Polaris.

I rode Honda for 30 years. My back couldn't take the Honda ride anymore, so I switched to Polaris and went from a Volkswagen to a Cadillac. My Polaris is smooth and has lots of power, and it's been reliable so far. I can leave any utility Honda up to 500cc in the dust. My Polaris is a 400cc HO Sportsman. The only problem with the Polaris is that I had to put new wheel bearings in all 4 hubs after 3000 km. However, my old Honda is still going strong, and it's 23 years old. Hondas are bulletproof. I'll have to see how long I can get out of my Polaris, but I don't think it will last 23 years and counting.

3 Yamaha Yamaha, another Japanese powerhouse, produces ATVs known for their innovative design and superior handling. Their models cater to both recreational riders and professional racers.

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 three generations of kids learning to ride. Thousands of hours on it. Dealership maintenance since bought off the showroom floor. The only parts to replace have been expected ones: tires, air filters, and brakes. However, parts are becoming harder and harder to find. I still get people trying to buy it from me, but I cannot part with it. Nevertheless, I am exploring purchasing a new one. I truly hope the new models provide for such great adventures and last half as long.

4 Can-Am / Bombardier Can-Am, a division of Bombardier Recreational Products, is a Canadian company that produces a variety of ATVs. Their vehicles are known for their powerful performance and cutting-edge technology.

I own a Can-Am Outlander 570. It's very fast for a 570, going just over 70 mph, and pulls a wheelie with no problem. The handling is fantastic, and there are no squeaks or loose bolts. It provides a very smooth ride, and the comfort level is top-notch. The ergonomics are perfect, and the V-twin sound is sweet. It comes with premium aluminum wheels and speed-sensitive 3-mode power steering. I can't say enough good things about this ATV.

However, in the summer, if you're wearing shorts, some heat does come off the transmission onto your left leg. But in the winter, it's a plus because it keeps you warm. Overall, it's an extremely impressive ATV, better than my neighbors' Polaris 570, Yamaha 700, and Kawasaki 750.

5 Arctic Cat Arctic Cat is a North American manufacturer of snowmobiles and ATVs. They are known for their rugged designs and reliable performance in extreme conditions.

I own a 2013 400 Core. It's been through the same or more than my buddy's 500 Outlander. I've hauled my other buddy's 750 Brute out of tons of holes. The only problem I've had with it is the electrical and brake pads.

I have always had Arctic Cat and have never had a problem. My buddy has all Polaris ATVs and has never had a machine that works well. I would recommend Arctic Cat to anyone, anytime.

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

6 Kawasaki Kawasaki, a Japanese multinational corporation, is known for its wide range of motorized products, including ATVs. Their ATVs are praised for their power and versatility.

I bought my 2007 Prairie 360 4x4 new. It's taken my 265lb butt everywhere, been hard on it, put it through the ringer! I use it to plow snow in Wyoming as well. The only thing I've replaced is a belt once. My only complaint is that it's a cold-blooded machine and takes a little while to get warmed up. But overall, I can't complain at all.

I have a 99 Kawasaki KVF 300, and it goes through more than my bro's Polaris 700 Explorer. They're tough machines. I've rolled it 3 times, and still, nothing is wrong with it. If you're planning on buying an ATV, get a Kawasaki.

7 CFMOTO CFMOTO is a Chinese manufacturer that specializes in the production of ATVs, among other vehicles. They are known for their affordable yet high-quality models.

I've had the UForce 800 EPs for three years now. It is as fast as they say, and so far, no major issues. I moved a washer and dryer in the bed.

They are at the top of sales in Canada, Russia, and Sweden...

CFMoto is getting better with years. I love the new CForce 550cc 2016. It has excellent quality and is very good value for money. I advise all ATV riders to try it. They won't regret it.

8 Suzuki Suzuki, another Japanese manufacturer, has a long history of producing reliable ATVs. Their vehicles are known for their excellent balance of power, performance, and durability.

I have a Suzuki, a 250 King Quad from 1994. It has been re-acted twice since I've had it, and it had an owner before me who had beaten it up on a farm. It had problems with the CV joint. It broke, and the others were in bad condition. It was a project that my Papa and I had fixed up. I've only had it for about 5 months, and it can take a licking and keep on ticking.

I have a 1994 QuadRunner 250 2x4 and it keeps up with the big boys on trails, no problem. Still smooth shifting after 20 years! The light front end makes it an awesome wheelie bike! This bike has been through hell and back, and no issues! Top speed is only 85 km/hour on pavement, but that's enough for me.

9 SHERP SHERP is a Ukrainian company that produces unique ATVs designed for extreme off-road conditions. Their ATVs are recognized for their exceptional ability to traverse difficult terrains.

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

It is a real ATV, easy to drive, with low fuel consumption, and unique parameters.

Great unit! It saves a lot of time for our primary machines.

10 KTM KTM, an Austrian company, is primarily known for its motorcycles, but it also produces a range of ATVs. Their ATVs are known for their high-speed performance and agile handling.

It's indisputable that the KTM 450SX in 2009 was and is the best race quad ever built. Stock for stock, there has never been a quad as capable as this one on an MX track.

I haven't ridden one of their quads, but I bet they're 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!

The Contenders
11 AlphaSports AlphaSports is a manufacturer that offers a range of ATVs. Their vehicles are known for their affordability and simplicity, making them a popular choice for beginners.
12 Kymco Kymco, a Taiwanese company, is one of the world's largest manufacturers of ATVs. They are known for their high-quality vehicles that offer a balance of performance and value.

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

Great build. Excellent price point. Worth it.

13 Linhai Linhai is a Chinese company that produces a variety of ATVs. Their vehicles are recognized for their durability and cost-effectiveness.

I had one for about ten months, and it is excellent. I had to spend money on it, 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.

14 TaoTao TaoTao is another Chinese manufacturer known for its affordable ATVs. They offer a range of models suitable for both adults and kids.

They are not horrible. The company gets a bad rap because most people think it's some unreliable, cheap Chinese company, which it isn't. It is Chinese, but they make very decent ATVs and quads. The only thing that I don't like is that they are way too 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 to have them sponsor me. I ride mostly Hondas and a few Kawasakis. I like Kawasakis, but you know what my favorite brand is? Yes, I might get hate for it, but it's TaoTao because they get such a bad rap. So, I would watch what you say about them before you speak. They are 13 years old, not 20, so I would keep quiet because TaoTao is a very decent, good company making quads. They just need to lower the price.

15 Aeon Aeon is a Taiwanese manufacturer that produces a variety of ATVs. Their vehicles are known for their innovative design and reliable performance.
16 Kubota Kubota, a Japanese company, is primarily known for its tractors and heavy equipment, but it also produces utility ATVs. Their ATVs are praised for their robustness and reliability.

Diesel. Has the only integrated cab in the business. Has factory heat and AC.

17 TGB TGB is a Taiwanese manufacturer that offers a range of ATVs. Their vehicles are known for their quality and performance, making them a popular choice among enthusiasts.

The fact that TGB is sold mostly in Europe is the reason why it's so low down on 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 should be in the top five manufacturers. They produce high-end ATVs that are very reliable. They come with good standard equipment, and I do recommend them over Polaris or Honda!

18 Cectek Cectek is a Taiwanese ATV manufacturer known for its high-performance vehicles. Their ATVs are recognized for their unique design and advanced technology.

The first one with bag differential.

19 Odes Odes is a U.S.-based company that produces a variety of ATVs. Their vehicles are known for their luxury features and competitive pricing.

Great quality and the best warranty in the industry.

20 Italika Italika is a Mexican company that produces a range of motorized vehicles, including ATVs. Their ATVs are recognized for their affordability and reliability.
21 Coolster Coolster is a Chinese company that offers a variety of affordable ATVs. Their vehicles are known for their user-friendly design and reliability.

I have two Coolsters. 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.

Great product, used for many years and goes very fast.

These are great for trail riding.

22 Baja Baja, a Canadian company, produces a range of ATVs. Their vehicles are recognized for their durability and performance in off-road conditions.

Had an old Baja 90. I used and abused it for a while when I was younger and never had a problem. A couple of plastic parts broke, but that was our own fault, and the brake stopped working, but we just never bothered to fix anything. The engine always ran well somehow. One day in the winter, it had been sitting for a while and hadn't been started for a while, and we went up there, and it started just like that.

23 Jaguar Jaguar Power Sports is a U.S.-based company that offers a variety of ATVs. Their vehicles are known for their stylish design and competitive pricing.
24 Apollo Apollo is a Chinese manufacturer known for its range of ATVs. Their vehicles are recognized for their affordability and versatility.
