Razor Dirt Quad Off-Road Kids ATV
The Razor Dirt Quad Off-Road Kids ATV is a great starter quad for those kids who are too old for power wheels but too young for a gas-powered quad.
It is constructed of a steel frame, tube bumpers, rear shock, disc brakes, and more. The most outstanding feature is its 350W motor, powered by two 12V batteries for a max speed of 8MPH within 40 minutes of runtime. Very powerful and fast for a battery power quad.
Particularly, the tires are real. In combination with coil shock and terrain-tracing droop-travel rear suspension, it can accommodate a max load of 120 pounds over grass and bumps with no problems.
If you’re concerned about its assembly. This kid’s ATV comes in 95% pre-assembled, the remaining task is just to bolt on the handlebars and done.

At a full charge, it can give you a max speed of 2.5 MPH and the biggest selling point is it’s able to go forward and reverse for tricky turnarounds in cramped spaces.
The battery is beefy and lasts for 30 minutes of playtime.
One thing to take note is that this model requires a bit more assembly tasks than the Razor Dirt Quad above. Don’t worry, the instructions are easy to follow and it just takes you within 15-30 minutes for assembling.

Kid Motorz Xtreme Quad Pink Kids ATV
This is a great choice for parents who want a simple ATV for their kid to press the go pedal with just the forward motion instead of learning a reverse mode also.
Compared to the previous models, it is rather lightweight that an adult can easily lift it up and move around. That said, it feels very sturdy and supportive. I do appreciate the built-in steering mechanism for ease of operation.
The weight capacity of this ATV is 66 pounds and it can reach a max speed of 1.5MPH – which is not too fast for a 2- to 3-year-old kid and parents can walk along with them.
For those who are wondering, this unit is powered by a 6V battery and it’s chargeable. Under a full charge, it can run continuously within 30 minutes as maximum.

Best Choice Products 12V Kids ATV
This “beast” would be a big hit for your little boy on his birthday. Look at that stylish and rugged design! An all-black design with real LED headlights, big, treaded wheels, and radio input.
A big plus for the additional, comfortable backrest.
Moreover, it gives the rider a functional foot pedal accelerator that can move forward and reverse with a max speed of 3.7MPH and two-speed options.
Easy to guess, this ATV is heavy but that will be a good choice for parents who want extra safety for their kids because such extra heft allows the unit to run more stably with no ease of falling over. Besides, it is beefy enough to handle more terrains.
According to its recommended maximum weight capacity and dimensions, I suggest this ATV for kids from 3 years old and up.

This “animal” – with an emphasis on Power-Lock brakes, Parent-controlled lockout, and durable construction – is perfect to conquer those wet grass and hard surfaces. It is powerful, sturdy, and reliable with full of control for parents and fun for kids to ride.
A huge bonus is there are two forward speeds and one reverse speed in this model with a maximum speed of 6MPH. The control panel is also simple to use: Red button to reverse, Yellow to go slower, and Green to drive at full speed.
In terms of safety, parents can rest assured as it’s passed all safety standards tested independently by Fisher-Price Play Lab.
Overall, the Power Wheels Racing Kids ATV is a good companion for those kids who have been always dreaming of cool “off-road” racing adventures of their backyard.

Power Wheels Jurassic World Dino Racer Kids ATV
If your kid is a big fan of dinosaurs, this is a perfect gift to surprise them.
Regardless of design, it has many similar features to the previous sibling, such as the Power-Lock brake system, high-speed lockout, and powered by a 12V battery. They all help kids to drive around with not just fun but also safety.
It rides powerfully through grass, up hills, and the battery handles the trips you make, which is very similar to a tiny 4-wheeler.
The installation isn’t really a matter. As the instructions are handy, it is not that hard at all to do it if you do not have anyone to help you.
Parents take note that it comes with only one forward speed of 6MPH in addition to a 3MPH reverse. But after testing, I find such speeds are reasonable for parent-controlled without going too slow.

Suzuki Quad 12 Volt Kids ATV
The Suzuki Quad 12 Volt Kids ATV is measured by 20” x 29.5” x 41.5”, weighing 74 pounds and powered by a 12V battery. It is hefty yet well-balanced for toddlers to drive around with safety.
With no compromise of speeds for the fun driving experience, it gives you two options – one forward mode of 5 MPH and one 2.5MPH reverse.
I really like the megatredz knobby tires and functional handles for extra control while parents feel more peace in mind when letting their kid drive it in the backyard.
There are also QuadRacer sound controls for extra interest as well as the authentic Suzuki graphics to make the ATV cooler.

This model is a bit bigger than the previous model with dimensions of 43.3″ x 25.6″ x 22.8″, which is ideal for older kids (6 years old and older) or as long as they’re under 165 pounds in weight.
The twist-styled handlebars are attached with the accelerator for ease of use and the chain drive system allows your kid to ride with more reliability.
It features a powerful 350W motor and a 24V battery, which gives a max speed of up to 12 MPH. There are two-speed options – 6MPH and 12MPH – to control.

It features a self-adjusting chain-driven, high-torque gear set, and a 500W engine, along with soft rubber grips, rear suspension, adjustable riser handlebars, and more.
For extra safety, it is built with a rear disc brake and twist-grip throttle control.
As powered by three 12V batteries, it’s obviously stronger and lasts longer, up to one hour of constant use. Based on such highlight features, I’d like to suggest it only for teenagers aging 14 and up. Its recommended weight capacity is 220 pounds.

Kaylee Kids ATV
This Kaylee is a perfect ride-on ATV for kids within 2-5 years old to fight crime.
It is lightweight enough for parents to lift and move around with ease, and yet, heavy enough for stability to keep your kid safely drive around. The ATV bolds four durable tough traction tires that can hold up well on various terrains.
A well-contoured seat with an ergonomic shape for extra comfort is a big plus. This ATV is powered by a 6V battery, charging around eight hours for constant use of 45 minutes.
At the max speed, it is able to reach 2MPH. I also like the dual-function button for forwarding and backward riding. Very easy to use and good parent-controlled!

Huffy Kids ATV
This line comes in a wide range of designs but this one is the most favorite as (according to many kids I’ve asked) it looks like a bigger version of a Lego kid’s ATV toy, which is exciting to drive on.
For kids within 1.5 to 3 years old, 90% of them love it.
Not just the fantastic looking, this design also provides motor sounds and horn to feel more like a real ATV.
The biggest selling point about it is you can either attach two AA batteries into it to work as a battery-powered quad or detach them for an ordinary balance bike/tricycle. That means this product is not just fun to drive but also allows kids to exercise.
There are twist-and-turn attachments as well to help build memories for kids by customizing their ride on.

The Titan Kids 24V Green Mini Quad Kids ATV is a great chance for kids to get involved in sports as well as have fun outdoors. It looks cool and is durable enough to tackle phenomenally well on backyards and driveways with safety.
A huge compliment for the ultra-large 13” knobby pneumatic tires for superior shock absorption to other counterparts.
In fact, it can drive through dirt trails and bumps smoothly.
I also like the added dual brakes and dual suspensions to this kid’s ATV, which is for extra safety and protection. The unit provides young riders with two-speed modes – 5MPH and 10MPH – but parents can rest assured that they’re still under control.
There are also some additional add-ons for fun, such as forward and reverse speeds, battery meter, and headlight.
- Powerful enough to tackle most terrains – durable frame, heavy base & ultra-large 13” knobby pneumatic tires

Rosso Motors Kids ATV
The Rosso Motors Kids ATV stands out for its unique camouflage pattern and cool design that any kid within 3-8 years old will happily scream for it.
If you feel this model familiar then yes, it used to be featured in Tex and the City (Will & Grace season two ep.3) and since then, it’s commonly found sold-out. The unit is very worth a try.
Aside from its cool looking, the unit is super-strong, durable, and good at shock-absorbing whenever driving over bumps, small rocks, or crevices.
Its engine is up to 800W and the battery is 36V for a max speed of up to 14MPH and runtime of 2 hours. It’s perfect for a long drive from home under parent supervision with no worry about safety (as it is built with three-speed reverse settings and disc brake system).

Superrio Monster-G Kids ATV
Unlike other kid’s ATVs at the same price point, the Superrio Monster-G comes up with a solid frame made of high-strength steel with decent toughness and durability. I believe that during the test of time, this can hold up excellently well.

The Ultimate Guide To Choosing Best Kids Atv In 2020
Electric or gas powered?
Also, these are the two major types of kid’s ATV engine on the market and the choice of this element will decide on how safe and joyful of your kids when they drive on it.
In comparison, the electric-powered engine is a lot slower and flimsier than the gas, making it super-suitable for kids under 6 years old. The max speed that an ordinary electric kid’s ATV can reach is around 3MPH to 6MPH.
Once your kids grow up and they are ready to try out the motorsport world, it’s time to level up to a gas-powered model.
The average speed ranges of this engine type are within 20MPH to 30MPH.
Dimensions & Weight
Both weight and a weight capacity of a kid’s ATV are important.
While weight capacity is obviously relative to the unit’s strength and its ability to accommodate a person, the weight indicator gets a close connection to the rider’s safety.
Why? Because it’s the key feature for your kid to be able or unable to shift the machine’s weight from side-to-side. If the kid is too lightweight for the ATV, it’s struggling to shift whereas a too heavy rider will take risks of fall off the machine.
A safe choice is that your kid’s weight should not be 3-4 times lighter than the ATV’s.
Besides, make sure their feet reach properly to the pedals as well as their hands can hold the handlebars comfortably, even when turning it to the left or right.
There also should be at least three inches of clearance between the kid’s pants and the seat once they stand on the ATV pedals with the hands-on handlebars.
Here are the safety features highly recommended to have in any kid’s ATV:
- Great quality brakes and shocks
- Visible, bright front, and rear lights
- Good-traction with well-threaded patterned tires for grips
- Keyed ignition switch
- Parent-controlled speed limiter
Who makes the best youth ATV?
From my experience, here are the most reliable brands for youth ATV:
- Best Choice Products
What size ATV should I buy for my child?
For kids under 6 years old, I suggest choosing an electric/battery-powered ATV. Once they get older, like 6 to 11 years old, a model featuring a 70cc engine is a good choice.
Teenagers aging from 12 to 15 should go for a 75-90cc engine ATV.
What is a good ATV for a 5-year-old?
My suggestions are:
- Kid Trax Spiderman Power Kids ATV
- Best Choice Products 12V Kids ATV
- Kaylee Kids ATV
- Titan Kids 24V Green Mini Quad Kids ATV
Does Polaris use Rotax engines?
No, it doesn’t.
How fast will a 50cc ATV go?
30MPH as the maximum speed without a factory speed restrictor. A modified model can reach up to 40MPH.
The last thing I’d like to say is that these kids’ ATVs absolutely weren’t picked randomly from the market. They are the results of me meticulously researching them to talk to as many industry experts as I could for the most informed opinions about construction and design.
I hope with this ultimate buying guide, you’ll know a thing or two about how to choose the best kid’s ATV for your young riders.
