Get ready to tackle the toughest jobs and the most epic adventures. The Honda FourTrax Foreman ATV has long been a dependable workhorse, regarded as just the right size for both work and fun. It’s strong, rugged and famously reliable. The soul of this go-to tool is its proven fuel injected 500-class engine that delivers plenty of usable power. The refined chassis and long suspension stroke allow for a smooth, nimble ride that’s perfect for rough terrain. So whether for work or for fun, our Foreman won’t let you down.
Important Safety Information: Recommended for riders 16 years of age and older. Honda recommends that all ATV riders take a training course and read their owner's manual thoroughly.
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.
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.
ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS)
Both speed- and torque-sensitive, Honda's Electric Power Steering (EPS) excels at reducing steering effort and kickback through the handlebar. It's a big help when riding in ruts, over rocks or on long side hills. A specially engineered mounting system for the EPS unit increases strength and rigidity.
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.
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.
Our rock-solid TraxLok system lets you select either 2WD or 4WD, giving you the freedom to choose between lighter steering (in 2WD) and maximizing available traction (in 4WD) when you need it most.
ELECTRIC SHIFT PROGRAM (ESP)
Upshifting and downshifting has never been this easy: With Honda's optional ESP system, you get the ease of an automatic with the strength of a conventional transmission. To shift up or down all you have to do is push one of two handlebar-mounted buttons. Since there's no foot-shift lever, ESP is also a bonus when riding in heavy or mud/snow-covered boots.
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.
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.
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.
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. That means quick and easy access to the engine.
POWERFUL ACG OUTPUT
An alternator offering extra output means the Foreman is capable of handling more of your accessory power needs.
In addition to the basics, the Foreman’s instrument panel offers extra information: a clock, water temperature gauge, our “maintenance minder” system and indicator for the electronic differential lock.
EASY-TO-USE REVERSE LEVER
Need to get out of a tight spot? The Foreman sports a special reverse lever mechanism that’s designed to be simple to use. Its intuitive design makes it quick and easy to operate.
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.
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.
INDEPENDENT ASSIST LIGHT
The 45-watt assist light runs independently of the headlights so you can turn it on when you need it, and turn it off when you don’t.
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.
