Four Wheelers, Custom Golf Carts, All Terrain Vehicles, Polaris Ranger for Sale by ATV dealers
In the early 1980's, ATV's were introduced that had a much lower tire profile and suspension. It was at this time that the first three wheel ATV was developed for public use. During this decade, numerous manufacturers entered the "sporting ATV" market, among them such high profile names such as Yamaha atv, Kawasaki atv, Suzuki atv and Polaris atv.
Safety issues arose with the three wheel ATV and it is a little known fact that the fledgling industry was nearly banned from the public by Congress because of these safety issues. Three wheel ATV production ended in 1987 due to consent decrees between the major manufacturers and the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the four wheeled ATV became the norm. Although these consent decrees ended in 1997, allowing companies to once again make and market 3 wheel atv models, very few were actually marketed and sold.
Today's ATV models generally fall into either the sporting or utility camps. The sporty atv models, for the most part, are small, light two wheel drive vehicles with a manual suspension and rapid acceleration. The utility ATVs, on the other hand, are much bigger four wheel drive atv and have a much slower maximum speed than their sporting counterparts. They also have a much needed feature; the ability to haul small loads on attached racks and/or small dump beds. Sporting ATVs are designed for performance rather than utility and can reach speeds of 100 miles per hour or more. Enjoy to buy sell atvs online ..!!
