One of the main reasons UTV growth has been so massive is they are extremely easy to drive. Put in High Gear and go! Not to mention breaking a transmission is a lot more expensive than blowing a belt and when you are out in the middle of nowhere fixing a belt may be a pain, but it’s far easier than fixing a transmission of drivetrain issues.
