Let’s put the ATV on the dune: a variety of ATVs from the summer 2021 offer

Restaurants have raised prices, summer vacations are expensive, an apartment from Chukamak rises like a four-level villa on the west coast, and what in the end? Buyers, of course you buy. The more, the better, because as Shalom Hanoch stated in his poem “the public is sophisticated and therefore the public pays.” Well, about.

Take, for example, the ATV market, side-by-side vehicles. So it is true that some of them are used for daily work, which is understandable and necessary, but a large part is used for pure pan. An expense that if the bank account had not allowed, they would not have entered it wholeheartedly.

Well last year, during the corona period, which was characterized by uncertainty and concern for the future of humanity, 4,579 such tools were sold in Israel, about 800 more tools than in 2019, the regular and routine. This year expectations are even up. Hopefully reaching 6,000 tools, so the graph just keeps climbing. what about the money? Apparently growing where the ATV is able to pass.

I asked car experts how they explain the phenomenon, how people allowed themselves in such a difficult time? The answer was quick and decisive. Whoever buys an SUV probably did not go to the Knesset and continued to earn well, and when the annual vacation abroad was canceled following the plague, scattered the money accumulated on expensive Hobby and clear air.

If there’s one thing the ATV allows its riders as an irreplaceable luxury, it’s getting to secluded and desolate places when everyone is walking down the street with masks.

Recently, somewhere in the heart of the Carmel forests, the Ofer Avnir Group presented the summer 2021 loot made by CF MOTO, which it imports to Israel. This is a Chinese manufacturer that has been operating for 32 years. In 2006 he introduced the first ATV he produced and today it has status and occupies a significant market share in quite a few countries, including Spain, Germany and Italy.

Like the whole market that flourished, CF MOTO also enjoyed a fruitful period last year. They sold 581 tools in Israel, more than twice as much as the year before, and the expectation for 2021 is the sale of 850 tools, since this summer most of the goods, they say, are already flying off the shelves.

It is a whole and colorful world. There are ATVs, side-by-side vehicles, such a wide market, variety and tools that can reach a price of NIS 200,000 or more. There are insane abilities here, dizzying speeds. Without easy control and control you will find yourself upside down on the roof.

The CF MOTO tools are considered entry tools, that is, they are intended for guys like me and a large part of you, who do not have much experience in off-road driving. catch

Me there mostly
The C FORCE 625, an ATV that costs NIS 52,000, and relative to the guns moving around in the field, is a favorable price. Another and no less important thing, is ease of operation and control.

The length of the amusement is 223 cm, the ventral space is 27 cm. The engine volume is 580 cc, and it knows how to provide 40 hp. What I especially liked was that it does not riot and the power that lies within it does not try to erupt, as for example in the C FORCE 850 we tried afterwards, a large and powerful ATV. This is a loyal partner.

On that day of riding we went out in a group led by Ofer Ogash, a professional guide, the trail champion. It was not an easy ride for friendly kurkar trails, but a rather challenging route with multiple descents and rocks, sections of technical riding.

Tal Etzion, one of the national champions in ATV riding, who joined us, clarified that this is not another ticket knock. The humble representative in the repertoire, the 625, swallowed the road, did not get stuck behind and was not required to assist thanks to rich momentum, and impressive offense ability.

Yes, this ATV can also be used for sporty driving, which can throw a tail in case of need, but it must be remembered that it does not have the familiar safety measures, and unnecessary traffic can cost a serious price.

If I had to choose between the tools offered on the day of the ride, I would probably choose the Z FORCE 1000. I do not ride motorcycles or ATVs, and the closest to the private car are the side-by-side vehicles, which hold space for two, steering wheel instead of handlebars and hard roof, things I know The daily leader.

The Z FORCE 1000 is also the most expensive of the tools we tested, and its price already reaches NIS 89,000, but again, in relation to the competition that exists in the market today and its capabilities, it is an attractive price.

So what did we have there? Length 302 cm, axle space 228 cm, ventral space 34 cm and engine 963 cc, two cylinders that can deliver 79 hp.

I drove it after the two ATVs introduced, and it did not lag behind and exhibited surprising lightness and was mostly friendly to those whose crossover is its best friend.

If that day was a tool with which I had to conduct a duel of force and control mechanisms, it was the C FORCE 850, which is already the older brother of the 625. It has an 800 cc engine, two cylinders, 63 hp. It is no coincidence that he was chosen by the director of government vehicles to serve as the Border Police and the Israel Police. Here already the force seeks to erupt, the momentum meaty. I sometimes needed to calm him down like taking over a horse on a rodeo.

I often go out on challenging riding days with apprehension, nevertheless matters of experience. Then when you see how easy it is to master the tools, and I do not mean a crazy ride that is definitely possible but a trip ride, aimed at experiencing the stunning scenery, as ATVs and side-by-side vehicles allow, I understand the option of addiction. 

Car importer Semlat updates that the first five orders have been registered for the new work from the Ferrari GTB 296 hybrid (pictured below), which will arrive in the second quarter of 2022. The price, even before additions, will reach NIS 2.35 million.

This is a mesmerizing vehicle, which holds a 2,900 cc, six-cylinder engine, which together with the electric motor are capable of delivering 830 hp to the gallop. As you can see, this is a powerful and fast vehicle, and it accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds. Its top speed is 330 km / h. Drive carefully.

Union Motors landed the Toyota Camry hybrid, which returned after a facelift. The exterior design has been given a new front bumper, bottom and top grille. Inside you will find a new touch screen for the nine-inch multimedia system.

The engine installed is 2,500 cc and has a power of 218 hp. The change, which Toyota is proud of, is in the safety equipment, which receives the highest score – 8. There are a number of advanced systems here, such as assistance in turning at intersections and an auxiliary system for steering in an emergency. The price of the car starts at NIS 215,000.

From Toyota, in the hybrid-electric race that left Netanya, to hybrid Corolla sedan cars, Bernardo Cosman, who spent 83% of his time on electric power alone, won. Cosman won a couple’s vacation in Tokyo.

And for an important purpose. Last October, the traces of Renna Horesh, 58, from Tel Aviv, were lost, and it was only after five days of searching that a hiker announced that he had seen a vehicle dropped in a wadi near the top of the scorpions, where her body was also found.

Jasmine Ronel, Renna’s sister, learned during those days that the desert was littered with vehicle and scrap skeletons and decided to set up a “Renna in the Desert” project in order to clear the area, both to beautify the landscape and to shorten accident reporting times in order to save lives. The fundraising page opens for the venture. The purpose of the project is to map the abandoned vehicles, mark their location and finally evacuations.
