Figures from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries found sales in OHV (such as ATVs etc) increased by 8.3 per cent compared to 2022.

“Primary producers and small business operators are seeing the benefits of using OHV or Side-by-Side vehicles,” FCAI Chief Executive Tony Weber said.
“When operated within the manufacturer’s specifications, these products offer a safe, user-friendly experience and provide greater mobility and utility than traditional options.”

The promising numbers come as a new site launches focussed on OHV safety and awareness:
“This website provides valuable information on the proper operation and handling of side-by-side vehicles including safety tips and guidelines, fire prevention, and interactive training resources,” Weber said.
“We want consumers to get the most out of their product, and to remain safe while doing so.”

Off-road, road and scooter sales figures dropped 14.5, 5.9 and 15.4 per cent respectively.
