Which fastest ATV holds the crown for being the swiftest right off the production line, without the need for tweaks?
Many often resort to modifying their quads to push the speedometer further, but this risks voiding the manufacturer’s warranty.
So, our quest is to uncover that pristine stock ATV that remains unaltered yet unmatched in speed.
While the pinnacle speed is vital, the burst of acceleration right from the get-go matters too.
Your riding terrain also plays a pivotal role. For instance, on a racing circuit, sheer speed and acceleration might not always translate to the fastest lap times.
