ATV Sizes: Engines, Max Speeds, Models And More

Pricing, Age Recommendations And Specs

The prices, MSRPs, age recommendations, measurements and weights listed below are based on industry averages comparing several different models in the some cc class.

For a quick comparison across ATV engine sizes, check out ATV Sizes Chart.


ATV Speeds

The ATV speeds listed are the top speeds that these engines can potentially run. This is what I would consider the “aspirational” speed – like if your machine is in perfect working order, traveling down hill with a brisk wind at your back.

To get a more realistic view of the average ATV speeds you could expect from each engine size in normal riding conditions subtract 2 – 7 MPH.


ATV Weight

Generally speaking, the more cc – the bigger and heavier the bike.

However, across manufacturers and models there may be manufacturing differences and upgrades that may cause some vehicles to be heavier and/or lighter than a similar or even a smaller/larger ATV.

For example, a model that is labeled for “mud”, “hunting” or “touring” may have larger tires, heavy duty shocks, winches and upgraded components, all of which would make the ATV heavier.

The weights listed are an average of several different models in the same cc class.



ATV Sizes

Small ATVs

ATV sizes from 50cc – 90cc are the smallest ATVs designed for use by children. Typically these ATVs will have built in safety features like engine limiters to control speed and a power cut-off tether switches.

There are mixed opinions regarding ATV use by children. Some experts say children should never ride an ATV while other use a more tempered approach focusing on training and adult supervision. Check out ATV Sizes By Age: What Size Is Best For Ages 6 -16 for a more in depth look at this topic.

Mid-Size ATVs

ATVs from 200cc – 270cc are for more mature riders in the 14 – 16 age range. Mid-size ATVs are significantly larger, heavier and faster than the small ATVs, which also makes them potentially more dangerous for smaller riders.

Engines from 300 cc and up are for riders 16 and older, with typical adult models starting at 400 cc.

None of the major ATV manufactures currently have any 350cc in their lineup. There used to be several 350cc on the market, but these models have fallen out of favor. Buyers are now choosing to go to the 300cc or the 400cc.
