It's hard to believe, but the industry still claims the best selling category is the 500cc class utility. Seems all we hear about though is 1k this and 1k that.......

Not for me. My 700 consumes enough fuel as is!

Five of my buddies bought new quads over say the past 8 months or so, and 4 out of 5 of them bought 500's and i was shocked... Once you try one of the Big bores and get a taste for it, whether Kawi or Cannam, i don't see how you could ever go back!

Hmmm...they are not popular in my area. I can't recall ever seeing a 2-seater ATV on the trails (or anywhere else for that matter).

As far as I can tell, the SxS market is hot right now and growing fast (not ATVs). In fact, my local XC series has 5 classes for SxS's...a year ago there were only 2 classes!

2007 KFX 730 (sold)
2004 Twin Peaks 800 (sold)
2003 Prairie 650 (parted out)
2002 Prairie 650 (parted out)

Happy trails...

I fully agree, but I have to admit, there are places that my 350 Yammie Wolverines will go with ease that my 700 would end up a ball of twisted metal if I tried to take it there! The smaller machines don't have the thrill of the power factor, but it is amazing what a machine will do when it's 200 or 300 pounds lighter and an inch narrower. And I can put 2.5 gallons of gas in those 350's and it will last a week of riding. My 700 uses a 5 gallon can about every day or two. If I want to go on a 75 mile ride (really common around here), I have to pack extra gas on the Prairie. Don't even have to think about it with the Wolverines.

It could be a regional thing I guess. Last week in Moab, I saw probably a dozen two-up machines on one trail alone. And I'd bet half of them were not carrying a passenger either! That might sound like they were not being used as intended, but the reason is that they are a bit more stable on those steep, slickrock hills because of the longer wheelbase. And they will go up and over taller steps than a regular atv. They definitely have their place.

But you are right, far and away the best selling market right now is the SXS market. And it has been for several years. It's brought in a whole new crowd of OHV enthusiasts. On that same trail in Moab, I'd bet we saw 40-50 atv's, 12 two-ups, 100 motorcycles, and probably 150 SXS. If you're an OHV manufacturer and you don't offer a competitive SXS these days, you are not going to be around very long!

LOL.. I found all that to be true with my Wolverine too...Really miss that gas millage...sometimes.. and I too remember taking some hill-side single-track trails that if it was any wider, it would have ended up a ball of recycle at the bottom...can't even think about suck trails with the Brute.
