The number of ATVs and farm buggies sold in the UK increased by 10.2% in 2014 to 10,763 units, according to the AEA.

The 20% rise in the number of new ATVs in particular signals a long-awaited improvement in sales after several years of steady decline. Honda, with roughly two-thirds of the market, remains the leading brand by some distance, followed by Yamaha, Suzuki and Polaris.
