ATV India the Growth of ATV use in India
Elena Brown If you were Googling ATV India then you are probably an adventure sports buff. Otherwise, there arent many people who know what an ATV is. An ATV or All Terrain Vehicle is a three or four wheeled vehicle that is designed to be operated like a motorcycle, by a single person. There are six wheeled ATVs as well, but they are less common. The All Terrain Vehicle Industry European Association or ATVEA defines an ATV as \”any motorised vehicle designed to travel on four low pressure tires on unpaved surfaces, having a seat designed to be straddled by the operator and handlebars for steering control. Four wheelers or quad bikes, or quads, are the most popular variant. Though most ATV India
aficionados are adventure sports lovers, ATVs can make extremely functional utility vehicles as well, and are also used in the agricultural and forestry sectors.
In India, ATVs are primarily used in Himalayan regions like Manali, Rishikesh, Shimla, Mussoorie and Ladakh for adventure trips. The Himalayan landscape provides the perfect opportunity for all thrill seekers to indulge themselves, with steep inclines and rocky trails. At the same time, there are scenic routes and vast stretches of wilderness to take your breath away. In fact, there are a few select tour operators who offer you tours of the Himalayan region on ATVs. They often offer these vehicles for rent to adventure tourists. Therefore in India, ATVs are often bought by such tour operators. However, in recent years, there has been a growth in the number of private individuals who are interested in buying ATVs for recreational purposes. This is signalled by the fact that many manufacturers have opened ATV showrooms
and local marketing branches in India. For instance, Polaris, the world No. 1, USA based ATV manufacturer, recently entered the Indian market, as Polaris India Pvt. Ltd. Polaris India has in fact appointed ten ATV showrooms and dealers throughout the country, in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Cochin, Jaipur, Jammu, Kolkata, Mumbai ,New Delhi and Patna. These ATV showrooms and dealerships are state of the art and have fully equipped workshops for servicing your ATVs.

A few other big and small manufacturers have also launched their products in India, so ATV lovers are spoilt for choice. You can even buy (or rent) ATVs online these days, in India. You can buy them directly from the manufacturer or from special motorsports websites. However, in the latter case, you should ensure that the website you are buying from is an authorized online dealer of ATVs. If you are not sure, its better to buy directly from the company.
