Honda's second four-wheel announcement of the 2017 powersports model year includes three ATV models: the Independent Rear Suspension-equipped FourTrax Foreman Rubicon 4x4, the faithful FourTrax Foreman 4x4 and the youth-focused TRX90X.
"It's great to welcome these popular ATVs back to the 2017 lineup," said Lee Edmunds, manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda. "Together, the Rubicon, Foreman and TRX90X appeal to a broad spectrum of users, perfectly demonstrating why Honda continues to lead the market in ATV sales."
FourTrax Foreman Rubicon
As Honda's top 500-class ATV, the FourTrax Foreman Rubicon represents an ideal balance of work and play, and for 2017 it features bright, durable painted plastic for a striking look—a first for a Honda ATV.

The smallest model in Honda's sport ATV family provides rugged reliability for years' worth of fun, and with revised rating from Y-12 to Y-10, parents and kids can share in the fun even earlier. An effortless push-button electric start powers the 86cc engine, which provides smooth power delivery and simple operation for the newest riders. That and the semi-automatic four-speed transmission make riding enjoyable for young Red Riders.
