If purchasing an ATV is your priority now, then you sure must know that it is a big investment. Buying an ATV is not just the initial cost that runs to several thousands of dollars, but also requires more funds to maintain your ATV, like your car. ATVs require gas, oil and all other things that are required for a car, and additional funds for replacing broken parts.
Buying an ATV must not be a decision that has to be taken in the lighter tone; one must know all his requirements before purchasing an ATV. A beginner must always start off with a model that will not leave a big hole in your budget, and moreover, the practice part also matters, it is not suggested to shell out money on a very costly vehicle and then end up crashing it somewhere. When you are confident, you can upgrade. All the safety gears must also be purchased along with an ATV. Winches are also required for casual riders.
You will surely know what kind of an experience you need while you decide to purchase an ATV. One might want it to be a reason for his excitement; others might just look for some casual fun. Some might want it for hauling other farm materials such as plow etc.
ATV can be useful, and at the same time be fun. If you look for fun, it is suggested you take a lighter model with many accessories. In case you are looking for an ATV to help you at work, a separate set of accessories need to be employed. In this case, a heavier model is preferred.
The type of engine to be chosen for the ATV also depends. A 2-stroke engine is used in case of fun riding, and oil and gas are mixed. A 4-stroke engine best suits work atmosphere. And the type of transmission also matters, whether it is manual or automatic. ATVs with automatic transmission are like the automatic transmission cars.
If you prefer the manual transmission, then the performance and the control of the ATV increase. And semi-automatic transmission also is preferred, which is a cross between the two types of transmissions.
Another option is the starter, you can decide which type of starter you want, electric or a kick starter, and some even have pill start. Though it is not a crucial factor, it does have a role to play in an ATV. The electric start is the best for people who want to take it easy. The kick start has a lever that must be kicked, which is at the bottom of the ATV.
The pull start in an ATV is like the one in a lawnmower, where a cord is given, and it must be pulled to start your ATV. Buying an ATV requires a lot of research work, and it is not extremely easy to go out there and choose whatever you see. So, watch out, and buy the vehicle that best suits you.
