An ATV for a 13 year old?

I am looking for an atv for a 13 year old boy, he is 5,7 and around 115-120 lbs.
He favours sport quads.
I was looking at an 03 Polaris Trailboss 330, would that be enough?
Giving references on which ATV you think is good is very appreciated, also which cc you think is appropriate.


Thanks.

Smile good bike for 13yr

find a used honda 300ex or 400ex i have a 400ex 2007 i love it it maybe big for a 13yr old but he will grow in to it. these bikes are 5 speed and have a clutch but the rep they have is bullit proof all 300 ex have reverse andthey date back to the mid 1990s. 400ex started in 1999and they did not have reverse untill 2005 or 2006 but it is a good bike either way and i never use reverse any how even know i have it. they r chain drive as well. i love mine and i always loved hondas. 400s also have alot of after market parts. 400s around here depending on year go for around 2000.00 to 4000.00 used depending on shape year and extras. new they r 6000.00. 300s go for 1200 to 3000 depending on year shape and extras new they cost 5000.00. both they r worth it my buddy has a 300 and its like 10yrs old and it still runs great. never any problems but he does take good care of ot, but he rides hard. buy a honda you wont regret it.

I am 14 and bout 5'7'' and i ride a 2004 Polaris sportsman 700 twin i like it alot it has a boatload of power, if your looking for power in a machiene it has it, a little bulkier than a sport quad but more versatile just a thought. also reliable but some do swear by the hondas 400ex is supposed to be a nice machiene(got it up to 55-60 mph before)

2004 Polaris sportsman 700 twin(atv)
2003 Polaris sportsman 90(atv)
1994 Polaris XCR 440(snowmobile)

live to ride
ride to live

has he ever ridden a atv before? if not you might want go with a smaller machine till he gets used to them. my son is 12 about the same height and weight as yours and he rides a honda 200.( my old one) thats plenty for him. dont forget when you were 13. (no fear)
some models you can limit the full throttle settings. just my two cents. better safe than sorry.
