It’s not every day that the currently fastest vehicle in an industry was made back in the 80s, but that what seems to have happened with ATVs.

This was the fastest production ATV ever produced – 30 years ago! Suzuki killed this bike after just four years, making them very hard, though very desirable, to find in the used market.
