I have been looking at several different China made UTV's, especially the HiSun Yamaha Rino copy. I want to know if anyone has any first or second hand info on the quality/reliability of these machines (or any other China UTV's), who makes the engines, and availability of replacement parts. Also, who is a good reputable dealer/source to do business with? What internet sellers are running scams, as I would like to stay away from them.
I do not own a UTV as of yet, that's why I'm asking.
We are a German company operating from the coastal City of Qingdao, we specialize in light and heavy engineering and Chines and Japanese engines for medium size drones applications.
Recently we acquired a contract to manufacture for a German sweeping company a specific type of electric utility vehicle. Whist sourcing parts in China for the mentioned electric vehicle, it comes to my attention that in fact most if not all the parts are available in China for UTV either 2WD or 4WD for middle or rear engine configurations.
Looking at the available UTVs on the international market, perhaps there is a niche that we could fit in at the right price. The question is always what the prospective customer would look in before he decides on what UTV would fulfill his requirements.
It is HP you guys are looking for or comfort and of course total reliability and a given weight, I would appreciate your cooperation in helping us to decide which way to go.
Joyner Parts Dealer.In China they have 3 levels of quality.You can buy a Chery engine.If you buy direct from Chery you pay 2,000.If you buy from a Vendor you can pay 1,600 dollars because its not made buy Chery.

CORONA, Calif. (August 23, 2016) - Racing 647 miles over silt, sand and rocks requires driving skill, teamwork, and exceptional tires. Racing his #1948 Monster Energy Polaris RZR equipped with STI Chicane RX tires, âMonsterâ Matt Burroughs earned second place in the UTV Pro class and second-place overall among UTV racers at the Vegas to Reno Best In The Desert (BITD) race. â
âWe basically had two flawless days of racing. Not a single issue. Itâs unbelievable that we raced our 32-inch STI Chicane RX tires over 647 miles of the nastiest rocks and silt imaginable, and not a single flat tire. Thatâs right, not a single flat tire. Simply remarkable!â Burroughs and co-driver Dan Lewis pushed early in day 1 of the two-day event through mostly sand and silt racing conditions. After the 4.5-hour race day, they held second place in the UTV Pro class. For day 2, the course covered rocky terrain on its way to Reno, Nev. With just over 7 hours of racing for day 2, Burroughs and the Monster team completed a grueling Vegas to Reno race with no flat tires or car troubles.
With his second-place finish in this BITD race, Burroughs now holds second-place overall in the UTV Pro class for the 2016 season points battle.
Congratulations to Burroughs, Lewis and the Monster Energy team for their second-place finish in the Best In The Desert Vegas to Reno race. STI-supported drivers Jonathan McVay (1952) finished 9th in the UTV Pro class, and Matt Hughes finished 10th, also running Chicane RX tires. The class had more than 30 racer entries.

Murray Racing put their No. 2927 Can-Am Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R
side-by-side on the BITD podium with a UTV Unlimited Pro class victory.Valcourt, Quebec/Canada, August 21, 2016 â Can-Am / Murray Racing pilot Jason Murray piloted the brand new Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle to the UTV Unlimited Pro class victory at the 2016 Best In The Desert Vegas To Reno race in Las Vegas, Nev. The all-new, bold Can-Am Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R side-by-side vehicle won its debut race just four short days after its worldwide unveiling in Orlando, Fla.
Can-Am Maverick X3 X rsâItâs impressive to earn such a defining victory in our first official race with the new Maverick X3. The Murray Racing team was outstanding in the Nevada desert and their class victories continue to prove Can-Am is a clear leader in performance side-by-side vehicles,â said Jeff Leclerc, Racing Project Leader, Can-Am. âOur BITD racing teams started with the most race-ready platform in history, with the Can-Am Maverick X3. Although they added the necessary safety and racing equipment, the new X3 race builds remained mostly stock.â
Can-Am Maverick X3 X rsThe Murray Racing brothers Jason and Derek Murray competed in two different classes in two different Can-Am Maverick turbo vehicles. Jason Murray drove the No. 2927 Can-Am Maverick X3, while his brother Derek piloted the No. 917 Maverick MAX Turbo. Jason earned a statement-making victory with the all-new Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle in its first official race. Derek drove his Maverick to victory in the Turbo Pro Production class and a third-place overall amongst all UTV classes. The Can-Am / Murray Racing teams outlasted 60-some other entrants and 650 miles of brutal desert terrain to stand atop the podium in two separate classes at the Vegas To Reno race, which BITD calls âthe longest off-road race in the United States.â ]
No. 917 Maverick MAX TurboâThe new Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle is simply amazing and the closest thing to a race-ready vehicle from a major manufacturer,â said Jason Murray, after his BITD win. âWe are so excited to have finished Vegas to Reno after 650 miles in the new Can-Am Off-Road Maverick X3 in its first race. To top that off, we scored two huge first-in-class victories.â The Murray brothers lightly modified their Maverick X3 X rs vehicle with a Lonestar Racing cage, doors and bumpers and necessary safety equipment required by the BITD. S3 Racing, Dustin Jones and Shane Dowden, also competed in the BITD race. They added an S3 cage, doors and bumpers and the required safety equipment. However, both of the Maverick X3 racing vehicles remained mostly stock by using the factory-equipped driveline, FOX shocks, suspension arms, 154-hp Rotax ACE triple-cylinder engine, QRS-X CVT, steering componentry and differentials.
