ATVs are really big in America as a leisure vehicle or extra transportation to have around the farm. It's not exactly a main vehicle to own but it does occupy a category in-between public transportation and car. A category lots of people including myself, find ourselves in. When the weather is nice, we put the top of the convertible down, so what's the difference with this.
This is everyone's idea of an ATV, a 4 wheel motorcycle and you need a motorcycle licence to drive this around. All ATVs have the option of cargo space at the back to turn it into a workhorse and roofing to shelter from sun/rain/snow. Like a regular vehicle, you can choose gas, electric or hybrid. Prices range from $2,000 to $8,000 (USD). Compare that to the US price of Vespas $3,000 to $7,000 (USD).
The side-by-side ATV is a sportier golf cart, built for off-roading. You need a drivers licence to ride one on the roads. Priced between $7,000 to $18,000. Personally, I prefer this as a good looking and fair priced vehicle. There's even space to put my bag or groceries on the seat next to me.
If you've got more people to move around, there is the 4x4 ATV. Priced between $16,000 to $23,000. Comparing Honda Pioneer 1000 ATV to 1912 Ford Model T. Both are about the same size and sit 4 passengers. If you can do without modern conveniences like ac, heating, radio etc.
