If you’re in the market for a new ATV, one factor you’ll need to consider in your search is engine power, which has a correlation with engine size. The number of CCs (cubic centimeters) is the measurement of the ATV’s engine volume. The general rule is that larger vehicles need more CCs, and more CCs means more power. Every ATV engine should have its CCs printed or stamped on it somewhere.

But power isn’t the only consideration, or even the most important one, especially if you’re new to ATVs. You should consider a variety of factors, including the kind of ATV you’re most comfortable riding, and the tasks you’ll be performing with the ATV.

An overview of the various types of ATVs

One of the most common questions people have when searching for an ATV is how much power they need their engine to have. While it can be tempting to maximize your engine power, this really will not be necessary for most users.

Here’s a quick look at some of the most common types of ATVs and their typical engine requirements.

You are the best judge for what your needs are as far as engine size and power, but the majority of buyers do not require a massively powerful engine. You’ll save money on both fuel and the vehicle itself by going with an engine that’s suitable for your needs.

When researching ATVs, don’t forget to look into ATV ramps as well! These ramps make it easy to load or unload your ATV on to a truck bed or trailer.

Black Widow Pro has a large selection of ATV ramps, all of which are designed to be lightweight yet extremely durable, offering high traction for extra safety during loading and unloading. Any ramp you purchase should have a load capacity that makes it capable of supporting the loaded wet weight of your ATV. Non-folding ATV ramps are usually shorter and designed for loading ATVs into trailers. If you need a longer ramp to get your four-wheeler into the bed of a truck, folding ramps in full-width or dual runner designs provide the length yet store compactly when they’re not needed.
