Side By Side ATV For Sale

ATVs are great vehicles for traversing challenging and narrow mountain trails, and also completing tasks around the ranch. Side-by-side ATVs, or SxS for short, take the concept of a quad and combine it with a dune buggy to create an incredibly compact two-seater. The slightly larger frame brings the benefit of a proper roll cage, seatbelts, paddles, and steering wheel controls.

The growing popularity of ATV’s has led many motorbike and specialized companies to develop new models, creating a wide range of options to choose from. We will highlight some of the best side-by-side ATVs currently available on the market.

Honda Talon 1000R

Talon 1000R and the smaller 1000X are Honda’s performance-oriented SxS models. Apart from the reliability consumers have come to expect from a Honda vehicle, the Talon 1000 has several features that put it ahead of the competition.

For starters, there is the revolutionary dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The intelligent four-wheel drive system includes a brake-traction control system, helping riders always maintain a firm grip. If you can spare the expense, upgrading to FOX Live Valve suspension is also a worthwhile investment, dramatically improving performance, ride comfort, and handling. An additional benefit is the launch mode, which significantly increases starting acceleration. These features in the sum of their parts help put the Talon 1000R Fox Live Valve at the top of all charts.

Honda has an extensive network of authorized dealerships that can offer you the full range of services, such as financing, at-home delivery, and test ride. 

Yamaha YXZ1000R SS XT-R 

With a nearly identical price to the Honda Talon 1000R Fox Live Valve suspension, Yamaha’s YXZ1000R SS XT-R has to meet high expectations. 

The 998cc DOHC engine inside the Yamaha ATV has an inline three-cylinder, 12 valve layout. It has a high-output and high-revving engine paired with a paddle-shift gearbox and automatic clutch to create a pure driving experience.

The chassis was designed with performance in mind, having both the driver and passenger seats placed low to enhance the driving experience. The XT-R package elevates the look of the standard YXZ, and it also adds advanced FOX dual spring suspension, enhanced underbody shield plate, and beadlock rims with Maxxis Carnage tires. 

Yamaha YXZ1000R SS XT-R has a higher base price, but it offers more than enough to justify its cost. While performance is a priority, ergonomics and passenger comfort were not sacrificed - a tall order for an ATV. 

Take a look at the Yamaha Motorsport website for more information on where you can purchase one.

Polaris RZR Pro XP

There is a good reason why Polaris off-road vehicles are always a solid purchase option. The expertise, technology, and uncompromising build quality are evident in every model, and the RZR Pro XP is their top of the line side-by-side ATV.

Only the engineers at Polaris know the secret of unlocking the181 horsepower from a 925cc, twin-cylinder turbocharged engine. When you consider that the RZR Pro XP weighs only 1,759 pounds, the acceleration and power output are something you have to experience in person to comprehend fully. 

Power isn’t the only thing you can get with the RZR. Walker Evans 2.5 needle shocks, 30” Maxxis Carnivore tires, and 14.5 inches of ground clearance work together to handle any type of terrain or obstacle in your way.

The base model of Polaris RZR Pro XP is as expensive as Yamaha’s YXZ or Honda’s Talon. If you want the Sport Rockford, Premium, or Ultimate trim features, the price increases significantly. However, Polaris’ staff is ready to help provide the best deal possible.

Arctic Cat Wildcat XX

The Wildcat XX is another ATV powered by a 998cc 3-cylinder engine with an output of 130 horsepower. Despite being somewhat of a relative newcomer to the space, Arctic Cat has created an ATV worthy of competing with the big companies. 

The suspension is expertly adjusted to create 80% less track-width change and mitigate the side-to-side motion. To neutralize wheel camber, front A-arms have unequal lengths, resulting in maximum ground contact. The Premium Fox shocks handle ride comfort and precise movement through the massive damping force and adjustable resistance.

The Wildcat XX also has full-length hard doors, oversized fenders, and one of the most spacious passenger cabins in its class. If you are looking for a reliable and highly capable ATV that will stand out among the sea of mainstream brands, the Arctic Cat Wildcat XX might be for you.

Can-Am Maverick X3 DS Turbo

At present, the Maverick X3 is Can-am’s most refined side-by-side ATV. It is available in various trims and configurations, but we will focus on the X3 DS Turbo.

Fox 2.5 Podium shocks are installed standard, working in conjunction with an advanced suspension system to keep the Maverick stable and comfortable at all times. Thanks to the turbocharged three-cylinder Rotax ACE engine and quick response CVT transmission, the Maverick can fully utilize its 120 horsepower. 

With the number of trims available, we do not recommend buying a Maverick X3 without consultation and a test ride. On the Can-Am website, you can find all the resources you need to contact the desired showrooms and organize your visit. Make sure to ask about the Can-Am standard warranty and the B.E.S.T. coverage.
