Choose The Right Tool.
Some jobs, it doesn’t matter if the work gets done today or tomorrow. Or if it’s raining or cold or blazing hot outside. Others, need to get done now, and done right the first time. Especially if you have people counting on you, or your paycheck riding on the line. That’s when you need the best tools—and the best help—that you can find. That’s when you need a Honda FourTrax Foreman.
At Honda, we have a whole stable full of great all-terrain vehicles, but the Honda Foreman has long been the real workhorse that demanding users go to when the going gets tough. It’s strong, rugged, famously reliable. Plenty of riders will find it the perfect size for both work or fun. Plus, its superior Honda engineering means you get more performance out of this ATV than some of the of the competition’s bigger, heavier models.
At the heart of the matter: a proven fuel injected 500-class engine offers excellent power and fuel efficiency. The strong, refined chassis offers a long suspension stroke for better handling and a smoother ride, perfect for rough terrain. The Foreman’s driveline works for you too—the front differential lock helps maximize front-end power transfer and traction. And finally, all of these features are wrapped up in some tough, aggressively styled bodywork and new color choices for 2017.
STYLING: Our Foreman models’ bodywork gives these ATVs a tough look. But it does more than just look good: it's designed to last, shrugging off the scrapes and dings of the job or the woods. It also helps protect you from mud and other debris.
35W HEADLIGHTS: Your exploring or work doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. Powerful twin headlights offer excellent illumination for the task at hand.
LIQUID COOLING: Our time-tested Honda engine is liquid-cooled to provide more consistent operating temperatures and more power than a comparable air-cooled engine. This adds up to better performance and longer engine life.
ELECTRONIC DIFFERENTIAL LOCK: When you’re in 4WD mode and you need to get the power to both front wheels, just flip the switch on our electronic differential lock to maximize available traction. The vehicle display will tell you when the diff lock is fully engaged.
FUEL INJECTION: By incorporating an oxygen sensor into the system, the Foreman delivers both better fuel efficiency and lower emissions. The ECU instantly adjusts the fuel injection mapping to match riding conditions for maximum fuel efficiency. The result: more time on the trail and more money in your pocket.
SEMI-DRY-SUMP ENGINE DESIGN: Compact and light-weight, the Foreman's overhead-valve, semi-dry-sump design creates an engine that's not only shorter from top to bottom, but one that enhances handling by lowering the center of gravity and increasing ground clearance.
LONGITUDINAL ENGINE LAYOUT: By orienting the engine crankshaft front to back, we route the flow of power straight to the wheels without any unnecessary right-angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more grunt to the ground.
SWINGARM SUSPENSION: The Foreman’s 4x4 rear swingarm with its solid axle provides superior capability for towing and hauling. Its long suspension stroke and plush seat let you tackle your favorite trail or the toughest chores in comfort all day long.
SUPERIOR CARRIER CAPACITY: With strong, steel carriers front and rear, and with both offering increased capacity than earlier models, the Foreman is ready to carry what you need.
COMFORTABLE SEAT: A plush seat and open rider triangle (bars/seat/pegs) teams up with the suspension to really treat you right. Superior ergonomics have always been a Honda priority, and the Foreman is no exception. With thick, soft foam, it’s supremely comfortable.
EASY SERVICE ACCESS: The Foreman’s body styling is not only aggressive, it’s functional. It features a tank and side covers that come off in one piece and without using any tools.
