Q:

What are all the ATV brands?

A:

The most popular brands of all-terrain vehicles are produced by American and Japanese companies, including Arctic Cat, John Deere, Polaris, Can-Am, Bobcat, Kimco, Honda, Kazuma, Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki. However, there are a number of other lesser-known brands, such as Argo, Bombardier, Pitster, Team Joyner, Eton, KTM, Tomerlin, Hyosung, Bennche, Alpha Sports, Unison, Diamo, Zongshen, Xtreme, Cobra, Wrath, Kubota and Cub Cadet.

In addition to all of these brands, an increasingly large number of small Chinese companies manufacture ATVs, and a number of other brands were only produced for a few years. Due to this, it's impossible to create a comprehensive list of all ATV brands available as well as the number of ATVs produced. Still, the rise of so many different companies has led to increased competition in the industry and makes it so hundreds of options for every type of ATV are available, from speedy sport quads to powerful universal-terrain vehicles.

Despite the large number of different brands, few consistently rank amongst the best. The two top American manufacturers are Polaris and Arctic Cat, both of which are based in Minnesota, and Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha are usually mentioned as the best Japanese ATV manufacturers, as of 2014.
