pretty hard. As with any kids’ UTV,
big bumps and big jumps will find the
suspension’s limits, but the Hisun can
handle hard riding better than most.

HOW ARE THE DETAILS?
Strike’s 2WD takes the machine most
places new drivers will want to go, and
the winch can get them unstuck if they
overdo it. Parents should school their
kids on winch use before they get in
a jam, though. Like other youth UTVs,
the Hisun uses chain drive, so the rear
sprocket reduces ground clearance to
5. 8 inches. It’s not a problem as long as
kids know the sprocket is lower than the
rest of the machine. Splash protection
is just okay, just like on big sport UTVs,
but kids would find a way to get wet
and muddy if the thing had a full cab.
We never thought we’d say this about
a UTV, but when it comes to features,
The Hisun’s double-A-arm front end is less subject to bump steer
than the simpler single-A-arm setups on some youth UTVs. A front
sway bar reduces body roll in corners. The shocks are spring preload
Like other youth UTVs, the Strike 250 uses swingarm rear suspension
and chain drive to the rear wheels only.
