CFMoto is a Chinese brand.  I'm not saying they are bad...but there are much better.

King Quad is a good deal.  Quality ATV at a little lower price than others.  

I think the Yamaha Grizzly is the top of the line ATV.  

I like the Polaris ATVs as well although some people complain about them.  They have a huge market share.  

Older Arctic Cats have Suzuki drive trains.

Hondas are extremely reliable but boring.  CVT drives on ATVs are awesome and Honda doesn't make any.  For work they are great.  Other brands are better for recreation.

I have a Polaris ranger which has been abused.  Still runs.  It has been sunk in mud, rolled over in on top the Rockies in deep snow.  And everything in between.  Still runs and is solid.
Very easy to work on and maintain

Got a honda rancher, flimsy body plastic, pain in ass to work on. But been solid as far as running.

Got a can am 4 wheeler. Solid body. Runs great, been easy to work on.

Kawasaki brute force is what I’m looking for. Quality at a lesser price than the top three

Went through this process a few years ago when we went from UTV back to ATV.  I narrowed down to Suzuki King Quad or Yamaha Grizzly.  Ended up going with the Suzuki King Quad as it was the best bang for your buck.  I've got 150ish hours on it now and it's been great.  Haven't had a single issue with it.

I would steer away from the Chinese options, CFMoto being one.

Honda seems to be skating on their old reputation and prices seem high for what you actually get.  Not a lot of IRS options which most other brands have gone to now and which I find more comfortable as well.  If I were in the market, I'd be looking at Suzuki, Yamaha, and maybe Polaris.

Just bought a 2019 King Quad with 60 hours on it a few days ago.
They have been rock solid for 30+ years now.

Honda then Can-am otherwise keep looking.

CF Moto dealer has a building full some 2022's that haven't sold yet. Most Honda's are sold before they hit the floor.

I was just a shop looking at a new Ranger with my son and they carried CFMoto. I don;t know how reliable they are, but they offer a lot of add-ons compared to everything else.

Most of the major brands will work just fine.  Keep on the maintenance and replacement parts when needed.

I have a 2007 Yamaha Grizzly (700cc) with over 2,500 miles and over 350 hrs that keeps on truckin.

I am a honda fan.  After owning several one of which has some where around 600 hours on it. (1999 honda foreman es)

My 2012 honda ran her is at about 200 hours and has spent 75% of its life plowing my 1/4 mile driveway.

Other posters are correct honda has the best reliability but theu are work horses furst.  All my Hondas have a straight rear axle.  

The cat 650 I have is a beast with irs...  but the frame did break in half which I welded back together.  Now it's just an old rusty fun toy.

My FIL was given 3 Honda ranchers that had been sitting a while. He gave one to a neighbor, I got one, and will pick up another soon. Can't beat free.

Cleaned out the carb bowl and jets, fired right up. Now ordering other small pieces to make it all work reliably.

Will maybe have $250 in the one I got now.

Don't need them, but their fun to tool around on, and great workhorses.
