2020 UTV BUYER’S GUIDE: ARTICAT TO KAWASAKI

Options and more options By the staff of Dirt Wheels What an exciting year for the UTV world! There have been big changes in the sport side, with Honda stepping up with a pair of two-seat Talon models. The Talon X is trail biased, and the longer-travel, wider Talon R is more pure sport. A pair of Talon X-based four-seat Talons will be 2020 models as well. Kawasaki introduced the all-new Teryx KRX 1000.

2020 CAN-AM DS 250

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2020 CAN-AM DS 250 Most of us didn’t start off riding fast and agile straight-axle sport quads or exceptionally capable big 4x4 rigs. Instead, we started small. Three-wheels, or four, we began riding on machines smaller than Can-Am’s DS 250. Once we had sure footing and a real understanding of how an ATV works, we could step up to a new realm of off-road enjoyment. The DS is a great transitional machine to allow you to progress to life with roost and wheelies or a perfect quad that…

2020 CAN-AM X3 TURBO RR

- By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2020 CAN-AM X3 TURBO RR Just one year ago the Can-Am Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R sat at the performance pinnacle for the company’s UTV line.
