THE HiSun built machines are produced by China's largest offroad vehicle manufacturer with more than 20 years in the offroad industry having started as a motorcycle manufacturer. The HiSun ATVs and UTVs have been a reliable niche in the Parklands range for years.
YOU don't need a fire breathing big bore quad to have fun on four wheels. Take the Raptor 125 for example. It's big enough and angry enough to take a full sized adult without being too much of a handful for younger riders.
WHEN the Arctic Cat 1000 Cruiser arrived at the Cycle Torque office it was a grand entrance. This machine was something to behold with loads of features to set it apart from your average ATV - and that is just at first glance. Did I mention it's got a 951cc engine? Let's go!
CAN-Am has finally joined the burgeoning side-by-side ATV market. Not only does its Commander have class leading power but it's also at the pointy end of the market with handling. It's hard to determine the future of the side-by-side market in Australia.
THE agricultural ATV market in Australia might be tiny compared to those overseas like America, but many farmers are seeing the benefits of spending less money on a vehicle that can do a great deal of things its bigger rivals can.
ARCTIC Cat's 1000cc recreational ATV boasts the biggest and most powerful engine in its class. If you want to experience the power for an adrenaline hit, no probs, it will blur the scenery quick smart.
If you need to mend the odd fence or two, or feed the cows, the Thundercat has you covered there as well.
CYCLE Torque has tested a few side-by-side ATVs lately but the Polaris RZR tops them all by a long shot. It's isn't the most powerful machine in its class but its ability to cushion the bumps at speed sets it apart from the competition.
ALWAYS willing to test the waters, Polaris has built a tough, no-nonsense youth ATV. But in the RZR170, yes in not on, the occupants sit side-by-side in a semi enclosed cockpit which allows the driver and passenger to explore levels of fun not deemed safe on a regular ATV.
