American made?

I was recently asked a question that I honestly don't know the answer to. I know that Polaris ATVs are made in USA. However, are any other ATVs made is the USA?

I found out that Artic Cats are american made, but they have suzuki engines. The only one that I am completely uncertian about is Can Am.

Obviously Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha are all foreign designed and made.
