What is the best ATV for kids in 2019? The answer to that is very much dependent on the age of the child in question and whether you want to opt for a gas or electric model vehicle.

For younger kids an electric option is generally advised, they are less powerful and will come with some handy safety options such as speed control and reverse.

Gas ATVs are more suitable to teens and young adults, however that does not mean to say that some of the electric options do not pack a punch; as you will see in the ATVs we have selected below, the range of power options is impressive these days.

So without further delay, let’s take a look at our top 8 ATVs for kids in 2019. The table below provides an overview of our favorite picks, full reviews of each ATV follows below.

Best Kids ATV Reviews

In our recent ATV buying guide we highlighted the need to consider build quality, construction design, and durability so as to identify the best ATV for your kid.

These factors have allowed for us to rate different kids’ ATVs so as to identify the best ones on the market today. Eight of the selected models are now reviewed below.

1. Razor 500 DLX Dirt Quad Bike

BEST ATV FOR TEENS

(Electric Model / Suitable for ages 14+)
Tackle rugged off-road terrain, with this robust electric dirt quad ATV.

This is a compactly-built, moderate-performance four-wheeled electric sit-on ATV for kids. It is a recreational sports ATV designed for recreational riding and off-road trailing in rugged terrains.

Expectedly, the rider is expected to have a minimum level of riding experience, and with its age limit set at 12years, then it is evident that this model is built for teens and younger adults.

This is a dirt bike whose safety profile is a little better than an equivalently-sized and designed ATV. Basically, a dirt bike is a modified motorcycle, and this model takes this modification to an extra degree by incorporating four wheels and an electric motor, while preserving the chain-driven transmission system.

This 500 DLX model is a modified version of the older Dirt Quad whose age limit was set at 8 years. The 500 DLX model features authentic moto-styling, high-torque motor, and a large frame which influenced the setting of its minimum age limit.

In fact, its wheelbase, seat height, and suspension system are built for use by teenage-sized riders, as younger kids would have trouble climbing onto the ATV, let alone ride it and maneuver around corners. This well-designed and well-styled ATV is made by an American company, Razor USA LLC.

This compact model weighs about 134.2pounds, and is 50.4inches long, 28.7inches wide, and 31.9inches tall which makes it suitably-sized for transportation on pick-up trucks.

Its shipping weight averages 151pounds due to inclusion of accessories and supporting hardware including the Allen wrench, an extra battery, a battery charger, and the user manual.

It comes almost fully-assembled with the adult purchaser required to just attach the handlebars into the handlebar clamps, inflate the tires, test the brakes, and charge the battery.

In term of aesthetics, this model has a bright white-red color scheme that is complemented by black tires. Moreover, it is a dirt bike that has styled after high-powered sports ATVs.

Regarding its operational design, it has adjustable height riser-style handlebars, and a complete and active rear suspension which provides for increased traction, while the body sports shatter-resistant plastic fairings.

Additionally, its tubular steel frame features a front brush bar and a well-designed rear carry handle, and all are powder-coated for corrosion resistance and all-weather durability.

This frame design allows for creation of a vertical storage space. The load capacity for this model is 220pounds.

This electric ATV is powered by a 500-watt electric DC motor that receives power from a 36V DC battery system. This battery system is made up of 3 sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries arranged in series in the quick-change battery compartment located underneath the charger port.

Each SLA is a 12V DC unit with a charge capacity of 7Ampere-hour (Ah). This motor directly drives an (internal) integral gear set that is connected to the chain-driven transmission system which delivers power to the two rear wheels.

The steel wheels are fitted with treaded pneumatic tires which must be inflated to the correct pressure. The top speed for this ATV is 15mph, but it can be reduced by adjusting the throttle limiter.

The main controls are conveniently-placed along the handlebars with the soft grip handlebar grip converting the variable-speed throttle into a twist-grip throttle.

The other important controls are the hand-operated rear disk-brake system and brake-lever system. The twist-grip throttle is fitted on the right handlebar, while on the left handlebar is the brake lever.

The brake lever is complemented by a cable adjuster which compensates for cable stretch and fine tunes lever movements during brake engagement.

Moreover, turning the speed control on and applying the brake automatically activates the cut-off switch that interrupts the circuit that delivers power to the motor, hence powering off the motor.

The fully-charged battery system can continuously power the moving ATV for about an hour, though in practice, this duration could be less due to workload and battery efficiency (as rechargeable batteries lose their charge retention potential with repeated use).

Additionally, this run time is influenced by terrain, riding conditions, load, and the functional state of the ATV. Nonetheless, a run time of 1 hour can inconvenience teens who want to enjoy day-long riding fun in the field.

The minimum and maximum recharge time is 12 hours and 24 hours respectively. For charging, a high-quality corded charger fitted with a plug is provided.

It also uses a self-adjustable chain-driven transmission system that features high-quality and durable sprockets which enhance its run-out tolerance.

A chain guard protects the chains from flying particles and mud during rides. This improves the performance of the ATV in muddy rides.

Regarding safety, the manufacturer recommends that the user wears the right protective gear, including a DoT-approved helmet, kneepads and elbow-pads.

Additionally, pants and long-sleeve shirts that have been fully buttoned are recommended, while the shoe laces must be tied at all times. Closed toe shoes with rubber soles are highly recommended.

Relatedly, it is prohibited to drive this ATV while bare-foot or wearing sandals. On the downside, this model lacks headlights and handguards, which can be incorporated in similarly-priced models without measurably raising the price point.

This model is covered by a limited warranty of 90 days.

Pros of the Razor 500 DLX Dirt Quad Bike
  • Well-styled, moderate-performance four-wheeled electric ATV.
  • Driven by a high-torque 500W electric motor.
  • Powered by three 7Ah SLA DC batteries arranged in series to deliver 36W.
  • Top speed set at 15mph.
  • Maximum load capacity is 220pounds.
  • All-weather durability achieved through powder coating the steel frame, front brush bar and carry handle.
  • Compact design and moderate weight that can be hauled by a pick-up truck.
  • Suitable for recreational riding and off-road trailing in rugged terrains.
  • Supported by a limited warranty of 90 days.
The Cons
  • Run time of 1 hour for a model powered by a 36V DC battery.
  • Lacks headlights and handguards.

Bottom-line

Razor 500 DLX is a compactly-built, moderate-performance four-wheeled electric sit-on ATV designed for off-road riding by teens and younger adults.

It is a dirt bike whose safety profile is a little better than that of an equivalently-sized and designed ATV, but still it has a minimum age limit of 12years.

This well-styled model is driven by a high-torque 500W electric motor that is powered by three 7Ah SLA DC batteries arranged in series to deliver 36W. Its top speed is set at 15mph which reduces the risk of catastrophic injuries.

Moreover, its maximum load capacity is 220pounds. Furthermore, its compact design and moderate weight allows it to be hauled by a pick-up truck, while all-weather durability is achieved through powder coating the steel frame, front brush bar and carry handle.

Even so, its run-time of 1 hour can inconvenience riders who want continuous riding experience that lasts for more than 60minutes.

2. Rosso Motors 36V/800W Blue eQuad X

KID’S ELECTRIC ATV

(Suitable for ages 3 – 8 years)
A safe and fun electric quad four wheeler for children. Featuring a 36V battery and 500W motor for great outdoor power and range.

This is a sleek, well-styled four-wheeled electric sit-on ATV for kids aged 3-8 years. It is a safe and reliable entry-level sports ATV designed for fun riding in uneven, unpaved or untarmacked terrains.

This model is a modified version of the older Rosso Motors Kids 36V/500W model. This 36V/800W model rides on all-terrain rubber tires, and features dual LED headlights along with a 3-speed governor that incorporates a safety reverse.

The key child safety features are this speed governor and disk brake system, along with a functional shock-absorbent suspension package.

Its large frame defines its overall appearance. Its large wheelbase, low seat height, and stable suspension system makes it easy for toddlers and preteens to climb and ride it, as well as make simple turns around corners.

This compactly-built and well-designed, ATV belongs to the eQuad X series of kid ATVs designed and made by Rosso Motors.

This compact model weighs about 110pounds, and is 39inches long, 27.9inches wide, and 22.1inches tall which makes it suitably-sized for transportation on pick-up trucks.

As expected, this model is lighter and smaller than the Razor 500 DLX dirt bike. Also, like the dirt bike, this eQuad X four-wheeler comes almost fully-assembled with the adult purchaser required to just attach the handlebars into the handlebar clamps, inflate the tires, test the brakes, and charge the battery.

It is shipped in two boxes, with one containing the ATV, charger, handlebars clamp, Allen wrenches, screwdriver, spanner, speed limit switch keys, fuses, and the gear switch knob. The other box contains three 12Ah lead acid batteries which needs to be wired in series in order to deliver 36V to the motor.

The front and rear tires of this Rosso 36V/800W model have a diameter of 11.5inches, while the wheel base is 28inches. The ground clearance for the ATV is 4inches which makes it unsuitable for riding in muddy and highly-rugged terrains.

Also, its seat height is 19inches which is tolerable to small kids, as they can easily embark or disembark, and in case of a fall, the injuries would not be catastrophic. Moreover, the treaded tires and suspension package improves traction.

Regarding aesthetics, this model has a bright blue color scheme that is complemented by a black chassis and foot rest.

Additionally, it is styled after high-powered utility ATVs. It even comes with front and rear utility racks made of tubular metal frames attached to the front bumper and rear carriage frame respectively.

These aggressive-looking racks complement the overall aesthetics of the ATV. Additionally, the load capacity for this model is 90pounds which limits it to only one user per time.

This entry-level ATV is powered by an 800-watt electric DC motor that receives power from a 36V DC battery system. This battery system located in the quick-change battery compartment located underneath the gear shifter.

The top speed for this ATV is 13mph, but it can be reduced by adjusting the throttle limiter.

Also, just like in the Razor 500 DLX, the main controls in Rosso Motors 36V/800W are conveniently-placed along the handlebars. These include the variable-speed, twist-grip, gear position indicator, and the front and rear brakes.

The other important controls are the hand-operated disk-brake system and brake-lever system. The gear shifter switch is positioned between the handlebars and the rider, which reduces the chance of the kid inadvertently shifting the gears during rides.

The fully-charged battery system has a runtime of one hour, though in practice, this duration could be less due to workload, riding conditions, and battery efficiency.

The minimum and maximum recharge time is 12 hours and 24 hours respectively. For charging, a high-quality corded charger fitted with a plug is provided.

With regards to safety, the manufacturer – in compliance to national safety laws and regulations – recommends that the user wears the appropriate protective gear, including a DoT-approved helmet, kneepads and elbow-pads.

Also, pants and long-sleeve shirts that have been fully buttoned are recommended, while the shoe laces must be tied at all times. As expected, it is prohibited to drive this ATV while bare-foot or wearing sandals.

This eQuad X model is covered by a limited warranty of 90 days.

Pros of the Rosso Motors 36V/800W Blue eQuad X
  • Safe and reliable entry-level sit-on ATV.
  • Well-styled, moderate-performance four-wheeled electric ATV.
  • Driven by a high-torque 800W electric motor.

  • It has a low-ground clearance which makes it ill-suited for relatively experienced 8-year-old kids who want to enjoy off-road trailing.

It is a safe and reliable entry-level sports ATV that rides on all-terrain rubber tires, and features dual LED headlights along with a 3-speed governor that incorporates a safety reverse.

Our top budget pick for young children.

This is an affordable sleek, safe, and reliable four-wheeled electric sit-on ATV for kids aged 3-7 years. It is low-performance entry-level sports ATV designed for fun riding on untarmacked terrains.

This model is a result of a collaboration between an Italian company, Peg Perego, and a US-based company, Polaris; and is made in Fort Wayne in Indiana. Unlike the models reviewed above, this Outlow model uses only a single 12V DC battery to power its electric motor.

It rides on all-terrain knobby tires, and features dual dummy headlights along with a 2-speed gearshift that incorporates a safety reverse.

Quality-wise, this Outlaw model can be considered a low-performance version of the Rosso Motors 36V/800W Blue eQuad X, and this also reflects in the pricing where the eQuad X model is about twice as much as the Outlaw model.

Moreover, this Outlaw model uses automatic brakes and foot pedal accelerator to achieve a realistic ATV riding experience. Its large wheelbase, low seat height, and stable suspension system makes it easy for toddlers and preteens to climb and ride it.

Polaris Outlaw IGOR0095 Citrus

Regarding aesthetics, this model has a citrus color scheme. Additionally, it is styled after high-powered utility ATVs though it lacks utility racks. On the upside, it has a front bumper.

Its load capacity is 85pounds, which as expected limits it to only one user at any one time. In fact, the purchaser is strongly discouraged from allowing two toddlers from riding the ATV together.

Polaris Outlaw IGOR0095 Citrus

In this low-performance model, the runtime is less than one hour, which is expected of a single 12V DC battery powering an ATV. For charging, a high-quality corded charger fitted with a plug is provided. This charger supports quick charging which allows the battery to be quickly recharged in 2 hours.

5. Razor Dirt Quad

BEST ELECTRIC ATV FOR KIDS

(Suitable for ages 8+)
The Razor Dirt Quad is a super electric off-road ATV. Featuring twist-Grip acceleration and sturdy 13″ pneumatic tires, this is a great starter vehicle.

This is an affordable low-performance, compactly-built, and well-styled four-wheeled electric sit-on ATV for kids aged 8 years or over. Even so, the CPSC recommended the minimum to be 8 years as children at this age have grown tall enough to easily embark and disembark form the ATV.

It is a recreational sports ATV designed for recreational riding and off-road trailing in rugged terrains. The Razor 500 DLX model is a vastly upgraded version of this model.

As a dirt bike, this model has a better safety profile as compared to an equivalently-sized and designed ATV. It is driven by a high-torque motor.

Additionally, it has a relatively large frame, and this has also influenced the setting of its minimum age limit. In fact, its wheelbase, seat height, and suspension system are built for use by children whose height corresponds to those who have just entered elementary schools.

Moreover, its suspension system features a coil that supports terrain-tracing and droop-travel which allows for a smooth ride. This well-designed and well-styled ATV is made by the American company, Razor USA LLC.

This well-designed ATV weighs about 80 pounds, and is 43inches long, 24inches wide, and 31.5inches tall which makes it slightly smaller than the 500 DLX model.

Still, it is suitably-sized for transportation on pick-up trucks. Like the 500 DLX model, this dirt bike comes almost fully-assembled with the adult purchaser required to just attach the handlebars into the handlebar clamps, inflate the tires, test the brakes, and charge the battery.

It is also shipped alongside its accessories and supporting hardware including the Allen wrench, an extra battery, a battery charger, and the user manual.

In term of aesthetics, this quad bike has a bright white-and -black color scheme. Also, it is styled after high-powered sports ATVs. Regarding its operational design, it has adjustable height riser-style handlebars, and an active rear suspension which provides for increased traction, while the body is built using shatter-resistant plastic fairings.

Additionally, its tubular steel frame features a front brush bar but it lacks a rear carry handle. This frame is powder-coated for corrosion resistance and all-weather durability. The load capacity for this model is 120pounds.

This electric ATV is powered by a 250-watt electric DC motor that receives power from a 24V DC battery system. This battery system is made up of 2 SLA DC batteries arranged in series in the quick-change battery compartment. The charge capacity of each battery is 7Ah.

The powered motor directly drives an integral gear set that is connected to the chain-driven transmission system which delivers power to the two rear wheels. The top speed for this ATV is 10mph, but it can be reduced by adjusting the throttle limiter.

This top speed is lower than that achieved by the 500 DLX model because the dirt bike has a lower motor performance. On the upside, this dirt bike uses a self-adjustable chain-driven transmission system that features high-quality and durable sprockets which enhance its run-out tolerance.

Just like in the 500 DLX model, the main controls are conveniently-placed along the handlebars of the dirt bike. These include the variable-speed throttle, the hand-operated rear disk-brake system and brake-lever system.

As expected, the twist-grip throttle is fitted on the right handlebar, while on the left handlebar is the brake lever. Similarly, the brake lever is complemented by a cable adjuster which compensates for cable stretch and fine tunes lever movements during brake engagement.

These operational features confirm that this model was used as the basis that created the 500 DLX ATV. Even so, the fully-charged battery system of the dirt bike has a run time of 40 minutes or less which further shows that this battery system underwent significant improvement when building the DLX 500 model.

The minimum and maximum recharge time is 12 hours and 24 hours respectively. Relatedly, a high-quality corded charger fitted with a plug is provided by the manufacturer.

The safety recommendations of this model are described in the paragraph regarding safety of using the Razor 500 DLX model. This dirt bike also comes with a limited warranty of 90 days.

6. Kawasaki Power Wheels CDD20 Brute Force

BEST ATV FOR TODDLERS

(Suitable for ages 3+)

Perfect for very young children this ATV features a parent-controlled high speed lock-out, with 2 speeds (2.5mph and 5 mph). It is nice and sturdy on outside surfaces too.

7. Tao Tao ATA125D

GAS ATV FOR YOUTHS

(Suitable for ages 12+)
Featuring a 110cc, 4-stroke air-cooled engine with Reverse, the Tao Tao is an affordable, yet quality entry level gas ATV for kids.

This is a sleek, moderate-performance, and well-styled four-wheeled fuel-powered sit-on ATV for kids.

This clutch transmits the engine rotation to the wheel via a fully-automatic transmission that also supports reverse. This transmission is chain-driven. Moreover, this model uses an electric start to start the engine which delivers a torque of 6.5 Newton.meter(N.m) at 5000-5500 revolutions per min (rpm).

This is a relatively high torque for a Kid ATV, and it is recommended that only trained teenagers should ride this model.

There is also an F-N-R shift gear, while its ignition system is based on capacitor discharge ignition (CDI) which uses a capacitor to store charge which is then delivered through an ignition coil to the spark plug. This well-designed gasoline ATV is made by TaoTao.

This model rides on all-terrain rubber tires and has two headlights. The key child safety features are a speed limiter (that integrates a throttle limiter) and an engine kill switch.

Its large frame defines its overall appearance, and supports its relatively large fuel capacity of 4.2liters. Its large wheelbase of 31.89inches, relatively high seat height, and stable suspension system makes it easy for teens to climb and ride it, as well as make simple turns around corners.

Its chassis is biased to the front which allows the front suspension coil to have a shorter suspension travel of 10.8inches as compare to the rear suspension coil that has a travel of 11inches. It uses a drum-based hand drake while the rear brakes use a hydraulic disc.

This gasoline ATV is styled after high-powered utility ATVs. It even has front and rear utility racks made of tubular metal frames attached to the front bumper and rear carriage frame respectively.

These aggressive-looking racks complement the overall aesthetics of the ATV, and gives it an appearance that closely resembles that of Rosso Motors 36V/800W Blue eQuad X.

The size of each front and rear tire in this gasoline ATV is 16X8-7 which gives the ATV a wide wheelbase of 31.89inches.

Its ground clearance is 3.54inches which makes it unsuitable for riding in muddy and highly-rugged terrains.

Also, its seat height is 24.81inches which is tolerable to only tall teens and young adults. Moreover, its treaded tires and suspension package improves ground traction. Another important measure is its load which is 243pounds.

Its main controls are conveniently-placed along the handlebars. These include the variable-speed twist-grip throttle, hand-operated disk-brake system, and brake-lever system.

Furthermore, in compliance to national safety laws and regulations, it is strongly recommended that the rider wears appropriate protective gear, including a DoT-approved helmet, kneepads and elbow-pads.

Also, pants and long-sleeve shirts that have been fully buttoned are recommended, while the shoe laces must be tied at all times.
