POLARIS PHOENIX 200 ($3,799)
Intended for riders 14 years old and up, the friendly but
sporty Phoenix has a reliable, 196cc, air-cooled, four-stroke
engine with a PVT transmission. The trans has forward,
neutral and reverse. A double A-arm in front supplies 7
inches of travel, and a swingarm rear has 6. 5 inches of
travel. The Phoenix comes with a helmet and safety flag!
SUZUKI OZARK 250 ($4,599)
Suzuki’s Ozark 250 is a great two-wheel-drive ATV
that packs a punch out of its 245cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine. For durability purposes, the
rear wheels are shaft-driven through a solid-axle swing-arm-type suspension. The front suspension utilizes independent dual A-arms. There are cargo racks on this quad.
ARCTIC CAT ALTERRA TRV 700/1000 SE ($11,399–$12,999)
Arctic Cat had one two-up in 2016 but three for 2017. The
700 and 1000 come with EPS, cast wheels and diff-lock. The
700 is powered by an EFI, 695cc, four-stroke single, but the
1000 is a 951cc EFI V-twin. New are a reshaped passenger
seat and grab rails, LED rear lights, a multi-function digital
gauge and 25-percent-better fuel economy.
ARCTIC CAT ALTERRA TRV 500 ($8,499)
Arctic Cat is credited with creating the two-up ATV for
those who prefer some company while riding. All three
two-up models have enough changes to be considered
new models. The 500 shares a wheelbase with the larger machines, but the 435cc, closed-loop, EFI-powered
machine has no automotive paint or EPS.
CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX 570/450 ($7,799/$6,999)
Riding trails can be more fun with a passenger. The
Outlander Max 570 and 450 have enough power to have
fun at a reasonable price. Independent suspension comes
standard on all four corners, and an automatic CVT-style
transmission makes this machine easy to operate. You can
get this machine with electronic power steering.
CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX XT 570 ($9,349)
The Outlander Max XT comes with Can-Am’s Tri-Mode
Dynamic Power Steering, along with a 3000-pound Warn
winch, heavy-duty front and rear bumpers and 12-inch
cast-aluminum wheels. The 48-horsepower, 570cc, V-twin
four-stroke engine has enough power to get this two-up
ATV down the trail with ease.
