**Kelley Blue Book does not provide a dollar figure to add or deduct based on mileage for ATVs. An ATV’s condition is far more important than its number of miles driven, since factors like riding style and road conditions will have a far greater impact on a value than the actual mileage.

*** No KBB or Nada Guide information available. These figures are based on our market research.
