    Can-Am Outlander Mossy Oak

    BRP’s Can-Am ATVs and UTVs will be sporting new Mossy Oak camouflage this year after the two companies partnered up for a marketing agreement.

    “You’d be hard-pressed to find a hunter or land owner that doesn’t own an ATV or side-by-side vehicle. These vehicles have become a necessary tool for outdoors people,” says Chris Paradise, sr. vice president and chief sales officer for Mossy Oak. “With the addition of Mossy Oak to the tough and powerful Can-Am off-road line-up, the best of concealment and performance are combined for the must-have, all-terrain vehicle.”

      Top 10 ATVs and UTVs of 2014 Feature

      The world of off road has been turned on its head over the past 12 months. When choosing our 10 favorite ATVs and UTVs of 2014, we started with a list of 50 new and revised models and we hear rumors of more on the way almost weekly.

      Getting on the gas with several marketing moves, the sleeping giant, Honda, has been very active. This gives us proof that the industry is beginning to wake up even more. We have seen an inflating trend in the working side of the industry as many companies start to focus on the bread and butter of what fills the bank account for them.

      Hunting is a huge part of the Side-by-Side industry. Without hunters, ranchers, active farmers or land maintenance workers, we would not be seeing the evolution to the Utility side of this industry. In 2014, Yamaha brought out the Viking VI while rethinking and redesigning the way three people fill the front and back stretch of a working ride. And there are many more examples of manufacturers finding ways to make these machines better and more useful.

      That same forward thinking is perhaps even more evident in the Sport segment. The fight for power and suspension travel supremacy continues. Consumers want to go faster and jump Mount Rushmore with little more than a tickle on the seat bottom upon landing. Using shock packages that are made for what seems to be full size trucks, companies like FOX, Elka and Walker Evans have seen a spike in sales not only to consumers but also to manufacturers who use their equipment on specific models.

      As we look ahead to 2015, we are seeing an industry that is alive and well. This past year has been incredible for ATV and UTV fans. Now we’ll take a look at our 10 favorite machines unveiled in 2014.
