Although some UTVs are used strictly for work-related purposes, there are others that are engineered to deliver high-performance fun. Whether the driver is blazing down a muddy path with friends or is competing in an amateur race, a sporty UTV will deliver the thrills. The best part about owning a sporty UTV is that it can still do a little work when called upon. Here are some of the top sport-inspired UTVs on the market.
Arctic Cat Wildcat
This sport-inspired UTV is destined to put a smile on everyone’s face. Equipped with racy shocks, the Arctic Cat Wildcat is able to zoom through off-road trails with ease. Due to its monstrous engine, this UTV is strictly for adult riders. The 951cc, V-twin engine pours out massive amounts of torque at all speeds. To enhance its maneuverability on various terrains, the Wildcat is equipped with a sturdy power steering system. For those riders that need to carry some extra baggage, there is also a rear cargo box that has a 300-pound weight capacity.
Polaris RZR 800
Although this machine does not have the most powerful engine in its class, the Polaris RZR 800 is still one of the most capable sport-inspired UTVs on the planet. The 53-horsepower engine enables the RZR 800 to churn through trails with authority. The availability of an engine-braking feature and power steering enables this fun UTV to handle with precision. Unlike some of the wider UTVs on the market, the relatively narrow chassis of the RZR 800 allows it to creep through tight spaces. Side By Side Stuff has accessories to make the RZR 800 even more skillful.
Boasting over 100 horsepower, the Can-Am Maverick has the power to topple over mountains. The 976cc motor provides the Maverick with plenty of potency. It is designed with 13 inches of ground clearance, so riders should have no problem tackling arduous terrains. The aggressive suspension setup gives the driver confidence when charging down off-road trails. Although there is no denying the Maverick’s performance capabilities, it is still a very functional UTV. There is also a purposeful rear rack that can carry up to 200 pounds of cargo.
