The popularity of UTVs (Utility Terrain Vehicles) has exploded in recent years – and for good reason.
UTVs have several advantages over other powersports vehicles, among them great flexibility for family use.
Of course, the first obvious difference between UTVs and ATVs is the presence of a second seat, prompting a second name – side by sides. Some models have seating for four, or even six passengers. In addition to offering the possibility of more riders, other advantages that buyers often like include:
--Steering wheels, foot accelerators and brake pedals, which make learning to ride easier by being similar to cars and trucks.
--Rollover bars, which are a strong safety item.
--Cargo carrying capacity, which makes them ideal for agricultural, hunting and other utility uses.
--Longer suspension, which leads to a smoother ride.
--Seat belts/harnesses and side door netting, providing greater safety.
--Good towing capacity on some models, adding to their use as a utility vehicle.
UTVs are extremely versatile with lots of applications. Hunters enjoy them because of the extra cargo capacity and the many accessories that are available for sportsmen. They are ideal for agricultural uses with good towing capacity for various tools and attachments – and they are ideal for various chores around the home or camp. They make great winter vehicles with the ability to add snow tracks on some models, as well as use for snow plowing.
And, of course, they are great for traditional powersports activities such as rock climbing (extreme trails), mudding, dune riding, racing and trail riding.
As noted, UTVs are ideal for many family uses with ability to provide seating for up to six people. They also can be kid-friendly with parents and grandparents having the option of being in the vehicle with youngsters as they learn to operate the UTV.
Of course, UTVs generally are more expensive than ATVs, but there is good news on this front. You don’t have to break the bank to purchase a new UTV. At FamilyGoKarts.com we feature numerous models of Chinese-made UTVs that are very similar to much more expensive Japanese and domestic brands in the market. In many respects they are very similar to the “name-brand” models but at a fraction of the price.
