What is an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV)?
An ATV is defined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as a vehicle that travels on low-pressure tires, with a seat that is straddled by the operator, along with handlebars for steering control. The name quad or quad-bike is also commonly used. This description however does not encompass all all-terrain type vehicles that may have an alternate type seating arrangement. Thus the term four-wheeler is also used. Close and sometimes in the same category are rails and other primarily off-highway vehicles.
Brief History of the ATV
Honda was the first to make ATVs back in the 1970s. Honda introduced a three-wheel style first and gained a lock on the market in the 80s through effective patents on design and engine placement. However by 1987 production of 3 wheel style ATVs ceased due to safety concerns. The four wheel style quad which had already been in production during the early 80 took center stage. Suzuki was the leading manufacturer in developing the 4wheeler style. Today models are divided into sport and utility caterers with both 4X4 and 4X2 options. Specialized racing model quads are also made.
Amphibious All-Terrain Vehicle (AATV)
Unknown to the average consumer, the Six wheeled (6X6) style AATV was actually originally called the ATV. This included a non-straddle ridden amphibious ATVs made by Jiger, Amphicat and other popular brands in the late 60s and 70s. Today popular brands include Argo and Muddox and are used by recreational and professional drivers around the world. As the name implies, they can float and move in water at slow speeds.
