Where is the ATV market headed?

Recommended Posts

If you take a step back and look at the last 10 years of ATV production, you'll notice a bunch of changes. Most of which we think are in the utility line of quads including the increase in CC's and electronics. What else? What do you think we'll see...Soon to be 1000 CC's??

Those Rhino Yamaha things are getting big!

You know... looks like a cross between a golf cart and 4wd Quad.

Two seaters with roll bars and cargo space.

People are hooking them up fancy with big wheels, lift kits,

stereo's, billet and chrome aftermarket parts, etc...:smile:

suspensions are also evolving. items like long travel resevor shocks are starting to become a stock item now on alot of the racing quads. and the polaris outlaw, a racing quad with an independant rear suspension. i look for other companys to do this aswell.

Don't get me wrong I do love the big machines but I think they do have to stop somewhere. We are having problems here in MN with the laws and they want to stop ATV use or at least contain us just to a small area and once those huge machines get out on the trails there will be nothing left. Like I said I do love the machines and I drive a big one but I would never go any bigger, this one does what it needs to do!

Hey muudin chick. Mn is cracking down on the wheeling spots. They already have a limit on the cc and width of the machines. Anything over I think 800cc or 50" wide (my 416ex is 49 3/4") is not considered an atv its an ohv.

I think the 500 cc and smaller will get even more competitve. I also think more and more big bore goody's will be on the smaller machines where the majority of the ATV sales are at. People like me don't need anything bigger than 400cc any how.

I agree with BuckBilly and think that we'll see allot more variations of certain machines. Like Can-Ams X-packages, ect..
