“Depending on region, hobbyist off-roaders are considering side-by-sides over traditional ATVs because of increased safety, the capacity for more riders and the broader range of accessories available,” said Lisa Pelissier, Kelley Blue Book senior analyst. “The used market for UTVs trends slightly stronger than conventional ATVs, which should be encouraging for dealers who are considering taking in and/or moving out pre-owned units.”
