The Yamaha kids four wheeler lineup includes the Raptor 90, a sleek, sporty atv that's been around for quite some time, and utility model, the Grizzly 125. Both of these models have been copied by Chinese four wheelers.  Both offer plenty of fun for the youth riders. The Raptor ATV lineup, with the sporty design is typically a favorite among many atv enthusiasts. The Grizzly has the classic utility look, and it's a little bigger, so the teenager can still ride in comfort. The Grizzly will run you about $3,500 new, while the Raptor will command about $2,800. Both will have a good resale value. Both are very nice kids four wheelers.


The TRX90X will run you about $3,000, but the quality and reliability are typically considered the best in the class of the kids four wheelers. The body style is pretty sleek and sporty, making it popular with many youth atv riders. The price, while the highest of the major brands, is more reasonable when you consider resale value. Typically, Honda atv's have great resale value. Kids four wheelers like this one will likely last you many years, going through many children. These are a big step up from cheap Honda clones.


While no longer offering a 50cc atv, the QuadSport Z90 is still available. The classic Suzuki design has remained fairly consistent over the years. This is not a knock, the look of the atv is really cool. Best of all is the price. At about $2,500 new, this Suzuki kids four wheeler is among the best values from the major brands. These are nice youth atv's made by a major manufacturer, not a knockoff company.
