Best ATV Companies
The Top Ten
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.
I think Honda is an OK brand but is very hard for beginners because most Honda ATV and dirt bikes are semi-auto or manual;which can be very hard for some people to learn. But on any other brand out their most of the ATV and dirt bikes they have are automatic to a certain point.
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
Honda Atvs are the best I think. I have had my TRX250EX 2007 model for five years and not a single problem with it. I need new tires and I just changed the oil in it. Honda's are the best.
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.
I ride a 2014 sportsman 570 EFI and I take it mudding and trail riding and it's great for utility around the house. It's treated me very well. Got plenty of power and gets great mpg. Only issue I've had was bad connection to the battery because it was caked with mud. My dad rides an '07 sportsman 800 and he loves that thing. It's got a ton of power. We go trail riding almost every weekend.
I have a 2001 sportsman 500, it finally died after years of abuse ( deep water mud up to the front rack and plowing driveways. I took it to get a rebuild and the shop said the hours were so high it was like a car with 250,000 mile. They couldn't believe it. It has been rebuilt and going again. I now bought an RZR to add to my toys love them both.
I think Yamahas are the best our 1986 Yamaha moto 4 200 is still running it smokes but has never had a rebuild.
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
Yamaha has the best build quality and reliability. Combine that with excellent performance and you have a clear winner.
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.
Amazing I've had my ds 250 for about 4 years now and all I have to do is put gass in itand it runs every time amazing machine
Can am is a very strong ATV brand, it can heat threw any thing that stands in its way.
This rocks that all
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.
2001 Arctic no problem a workhorse took me through the Wisconsin swamps.
Past ten years I have owned artic cat atv. First a 400 now a 1000 best in my opinion.
I just bought my 550 and I take it through hell and back. It's the best ATV in my opinion
Bought a zforce new in 2015 never had a probably yet with 6000KM on it so far
Excellent quality and price
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.
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!
Tough four wheeler. Got a 2000 Prairie 650 and never had one problem.
I have a Lakota 3000 sport and nerve give me any problem
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! - KSellers66
Work's hard but rather have a honda.
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
Stock, they are tricked out!
Great ride for the price! Have 5 kids, and they can't wear it out.
Kymco = Crap
Great build, Excellent price point. Worth it.
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
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
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.
Diesel. Has the only integrated cab in the business. Has factory heat and AC.
There one of the best but go for john deer first
10 YRS AND ONY CHANGE OIL AND FILTERS---NP PROBLEMS
The first one with bag differential
Very modern tecnique
Most modern ATV
Great quality and the best warranty in the industry
Good and cheap
I fink fhey r greate biks and have god mony
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 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!
TGB is not in the top 10? LOL...
"Great price! "
is not the best but haves an average performanceand its the cheapest - RenoK
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.
"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
My dad had a John Deere and that thing would be able to go through anything but YES John Deere does sell atvs
Don't know why John Deere are here, they don't make ATV's
it is bad
Great looking and excellent performance in the woods/desert, - Michaelhsu
Same as kymco
Good Quad, made my SMC. Parts easy got.
I bought a Fox 50cc for my son, Its now been handed down his younger brother and Santa brought a new Fox 110cc at Christmas for my older boy. Both are running faultless. For a third of the price of a well known Japanese brand.
It's a good brand but it can break sometimes.
I have an old 250, 14 years without a problem
Not for Kids or these are the real deal they are the best of the best nothing else like it. No doubt they are the best hit the throttle you be droping panties. All the champs ride one.
If it's that fast it must be dangerous so why even have one
They are very good in service, gives prompt and door step services, best quality.
The only ATV you will ever need.
Best from honda
I have a lt 540 kit suzuki hybrid my opinion is it's the best four wheeler/quad I ever had and the best
Their ok their frames could be stronger but overall really good and powerful I hit about 55 mph on a loncin 250cc
Quality Sport ATV's. Very fast and entertaining to ride.
Very high quality atv
