How to choose the best ATV from all the popular brands. In the realm of ATVs, Honda and Polaris are two of the leading manufacturers because they have both utility and sport models and each brand has proven to provide quality off-road all terrain vehicles. When it comes to dependability, Honda dominates in riders reviews for both the farming and ranching ATVs and the race vehicles. Honda ATVs are depended on and considered highly reliable because the Honda company has spent so many years producing quality on the road and off the road

Hondas sport ATVs have motors and suspension kits special to the riding atmosphere of racing. Sport ATVs are for catching air and fast riding through rough terrain. The suspension kit and motor are customized for this type of riding, which makes Hondas sport ATVs the right quad for the job.

Utility ATVs are the second classification of Honda four-wheelers. These ATVs have no problem getting through tough areas because they are made to use for farming, hunting and fishing so you can get to the hard to reach spots with no problems. Both classifications of Honda ATVs include a variety of engines and other features to choose from.

The sport and utility quads from Honda have their pros and cons, but most riders and racers trust a Honda overall. Some reviews
criticize the ground clearance of certain models of Honda ATVs or the slow engine kick-up, but in the end, riders writing the reviews agree that Honda ATVs are the most reliable and durable, which is what counts the most.

Close in line for dependability and toughness, are all Polaris ATVs. Several of Polaris Sportsman ATVs are some of the best
selling in the United States. Polaris ATVs have separate classifications, such as rancher or sport vehicles, but most models can achieve a diversity of tasks in both categories. Several Polaris ATV models are used as farming and hunting quads but they are also reliable as a fast, racy, motocross style vehicle.

The fact that Honda and Polaris have utility and sport ATVs that can serve well in both areas may confuse some consumers. Knowing what kind of ATVing you will be doing is the best way to determine which ATV will be best to ride. All ATVs are very capable of pushing the boundaries of where you can go off road, but some, especially racing quads, need special designs in order
to accommodate your uses fully.

For this reason, sport ATVs are separated because of their specialty suspension, different type of motors and other race specific features. Sport racing ATVs also have a lighter weight design than utility vehicles for quicker movements. Utility ATVs are commonly used for loading and hauling things, which calls for a larger exterior to carry objects.

By knowing the difference you can make a better choice. Which category you choose is only significant if you are using the ATV for one specific purpose or the other. If youre in the middle or you plan on putting your ATV to several uses, both types will get you where you need to go.
