Legally, yes it may be considered a motor vehicle. But then again it is not designed to be driven on public roads so in that sense it is not a motor vehicle. Most states do not consider it a motor vehicle and it is illegal to drive one on a public road.

When talking about alcohol and the law and ATV is a motor vehicle and if you are drunk and driving your ATV you can get a DUI. This is on or off the road; even if you're out muddin' in the woods (I don't know why a cop would be out there anyway but still).
