CF Moto CF500 ATV

Honda's TRX250 in fact led the ATV figures, followed by Yamaha's YFM90, but both are leisure/sports types.

When it comes to working models, Chinese maker CF Moto nearly tripled its sales (to 809) for the CF500.

Polaris from the USA came next with the Sportsman 550 XP on 759 units.

The top Japanese model was the Honda TRX420TM with 717 sales.

While ATVs dominate the working market, dedicated farm bikes still have an audience. Honda's CTX 200 sold 666 units, followed by Suzuki's DR200SE with 651 sales.
