The all-terrain vehicle (ATV) market in India is growing at a gradual pace. Companies like Polaris ATV and Adventure Wheels have already established themselves in the market, but the products are still quite expensive. Even though these are lifestyle vehicles, there is a need for more affordable ATVs. This is the point that Nebula Automotive has decided to focus on.

Nebula has added three new ATVs - the HS800 two-seater, the AX700 and the Trike (which is also India's first three-wheeled ATV) - to its product range, which now amounts to 21 options to choose from and the range now starts at Rs 90,000 for the entry-level ATV and goes up to Rs 23 lakh for the more serious off-road machine. Service and maintenance shouldn't be a headache, since Nebula will provide full-fledged assistance anytime, anywhere in India.

Talking about the latest additions, the HS800 comes with an 800cc V-Twin engine, can carry upto 30 litres of fuel and achieves a top speed of 70kph, whereas the AX700 gets a 686cc motor, a 21-litre fuel tank, front and rear disc brakes and a lockable diff. Both come with 2WD and 4WD modes and are mated to CVT transmissions.

Mr.Sukhdev Asnani, Managing Director, Nebula Automotive said at the launch, "The addition of these new ATVs furthermore strengthens our placement in the market. The Trike ATV and the HS800 will be unique models and we are confident that given their performance and pricing, they will be well accepted in the market."

The HS800 retails at Rs 16.50 lakh, the AX700 at Rs 12 lakh and the Trike ATV at Rs 7.77 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, India). Keeping in mind the fact that these vehicles are not street legal, would you be willing to pump in that sort of money for a rich boy's toy, TopGearers?
