The NSW government recently extended its Quad Bike Safety Rebate Program into a sixth year, which means that primary producers who purchase an eligible CFMOTO UTV – and now all CFMOTO ATVs fitted with an operator protector device (OPD) – can apply for a rebate.

The rebate for a CFMOTO ATV purchase is $600, while for a CFMOTO UTV it’s $2000. The program, administered under the NSW SafeWork umbrella, applies to the following CFMOTO UFORCE UTVs:

• UFORCE 550;
• UFORCE 800 EPS (including the camo version);
• UFORCE 1000 EPS; and
• UFORCE EPS 1000 Hunter.

All farming businesses registered in NSW with the primary intention of generating income are eligible to access the NSW Quad Bike Safety Rebate Program. Businesses must also purchase a new UTV and or ATV (not second-hand)

The criteria that must be met for UTV and ATV purchases is the same, except that in the case of ATVs:

• The eligible OPD must be separately itemised on the invoice as proof of purchase;
• Dealerships must provide in writing that the eligible OPD is new and was fitted by a competent person; and
• Dealerships must provide in writing they will provide the manufacturer’s instructions for the OPD at point of sale.

The extension of the Quad Bike Safety Rebate Program, to the tune of $2.8 million, was announced in November 2020, and will be available “for as long as the funding lasts”.

Tax time deals
And don’t forget CFMOTO’s ‘tax-time deals’ campaign is still in full swing for selected ATVs and UTVs until June 30, 2021. On the UTV side of the equation, a free snorkel kit (valued at $562) and a 2.9 per cent finance is available on the UFORCE 1000 EPS V-twin, while the UFORCE 1000 Hunter EPS comes with a free CFMOTO i27 generator (valued at $1299).
