Should You Buy ATVs New or Used?, Earl, Pennsylvania

Whether you need practical off-road transportation or want to go on outdoor adventures, consider investing in an ATV. As you browse dealerships, you may wonder whether you should buy new or used. Below, you’ll find a helpful guide on the advantages of each and how to make the right decision for your needs.

How to Choose Between New & Used ATVs

Engine Size

ATVsEngine size plays a significant role in whether you should buy new or used. For instance, if you’re a motocross enthusiast or enjoy more intense trail riding, you’ll need an engine size of about 700-1000 cubic centimeters. Though you can buy a used one with this engine size, you’ll ultimately enjoy better engine dependability and longevity from a new model. If you ride casually and don’t need a large engine, you can opt for a used vehicle.

Budget & Cost

Perhaps the most obvious deciding factor between new and used is budget. Prices for new ATVs vary widely depending on the make, model, and specifications. Premium offerings can cost over $10,000. Used models offer maximum affordability. Think about what you can realistically spend and set a price range for your budget. Don’t forget to factor in any dealership, setup, and shipping fees. 

Also, used vehicles are cheaper upfront, but may need additional parts or repairs. Consider these costs when determining if your desired model is within your budget.

Experience Level

If you’re buying for a child or teen who doesn’t have much riding experience, buying used makes more financial sense. If your kid doesn’t wind up using the vehicle much, you won’t have to deal with the hassle of reselling. 

However, if you’re an experienced or competitive rider, new ATVs are usually the better investment since they provide optimal performance and handling. They also last longer, giving you several more years to ride.
