Ashva is one of four all-terrain utility vehicles planned by the company.

Bangalore-based A-Thon AllTerrain Pvt Ltd has revealed what is claimed to be the first made-in-India ATV, the Ashva 4x4. 

Ashva is one of four all-terrain utility vehicles planned by the company. It is a 2-seater 4-wheel-drive ATV based on a space frame chassis and measures 3,556 mm in length, 1,930 mm in width and 2,010 mm in height. Its wheelbase is 2,600 mm. The vehicle weighs 850 kg and has a cargo capacity of 60 kg.

The Ashva 4x4 is powered by a 976cc, liquid-cooled V-twin engine. It is available in two states of tune - the base variant packs 71 BHP @ 6,500 rpm and 85 Nm @ 5,500 rpm. The higher-spec engine produces 85 BHP @ 6,500 rpm and 101 Nm @ 5,500 rpm. Both variants get a 2-step CVT and on-demand 2WD and 4WD with locking differentials. The ATV is said to be capable of climbing up a 65-degree slope and can drive over a side slope of 45 degrees. 

The Ashva 4x4 is equipped with a double-wishbone front suspension with dual-rated coilover shock absorbers and a trailing arm setup at the rear with camber links. The vehicle gets disc brakes on all four corners. 

A-Thon has positioned the Ashva 4x4 as a farm utility product. It comes in three variants - V1, which has a fixed front and rear hitch for agricultural attachments and accessories. The V2 version comes with a rear PTO, while the V3 packs autonomous features and data-centric crop management systems.
