    Team Kawasaki IMG Motorsports

    Team Kawasaki IMG Motorsports will support the first ever ‘American Side X Side Team’ to race in the 2015, 25th Anniversary, Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles. Sara Price and Erica Sacks will be tackling one of the toughest All-Female Sporting events on the planet in a factory supported Kawasaki Teryx Side X Side built by IMG Motorsports.

    The Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles is a nine-day race located in Morocco, Africa where approximately 160 teams and 300 competitors come together to tackle the terrain without the help of GPS. Using nothing but outdated maps, teams are forced to navigate through the incredibly tough terrain with nothing but a compass and their will to succeed. This navigational challenge will be a true test for the Kawasaki IMG Motorsports team. They will navigate with the goal of traveling the shortest distance from Point A to Point B, ranging anywhere from 700 miles to 3,000 miles.

      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.
