Rival Motorsports Unveils Two New Youth ATV Models

Company says its MudHawk 6 and MudHawk 14 are positioned to fill gaps in the market.

Rival Motorsports has announced two new affordable ATV models for young riders. “The MudHawk 6 and MudHawk 14 have both been developed to meet the unique needs of young riders,” explained company president, Rob Powers. “These two new models have been certified by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission for 6-year-old and 14-year-old riders, respectively. That’s an important distinction.”

Both models are scaled to fit their target riders, ergonomically. “Confidence is so important when you’re learning to ride,” said Powers. “A six-year-old needs an ATV that he or she can sit on, reach the handlebars comfortably and have his or her feet on the floorboards in order to feel in control. The MudHawk 6 delivers that.”

Performance levels on both models is also scaled to match rider age and ability. “We met the CPSC’s standards for engine performance on both MudHawk models, in their targeted age ranges,” Powers added. “Both models also have a throttle limiter screw so parents can further limit performance until their young rider is ready for more. And beyond that, the MudHawk 6 comes standard with a remote engine shutoff key fob so the supervising adult can actually shut the ATV down up to 50 feet way, if they feel the need.”

As riders get older and gain some experience, they’ll be looking for more challenging terrain. The MudHawk 14 is ready to bring them to the next level. “The MudHawk 14 is the only Youth-14 rated ATV in the industry to come standard with selectable 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive,” Powers continued, “plus it also has industry-exclusive independent front AND rear suspension for great ride and handling.”

Not only do the MudHawk 6 and MudHawk 14 fill gaps for young riders, they also come in at a fair price so that families can afford to ride together. “We put a sharp focus on keeping our products’ price points affordable,” Powers said. “We want families to be able to buy the right models for everyone to ride and enjoy their time together. I’m confident that we have the best value on the market today!”

The Rival Motorsports team has been busy identifying quality dealerships in key markets. “We want to have the right dealerships in the right locations to best serve our customers with a strong sales and service experience,” Powers said. “We don’t intend to set up a Rival Motorsports dealership on every corner.” Interested dealers should visit the website to request more information about becoming a Rival Motorsports dealer.
