To build a great workhorse ATV, we start with the heart.

The FourTrax Foreman 4x4 is built around our strong, single-cylinder, 475cc longitudinal engine. By orienting the crankshaft front-to-back in the chassis, we route the flow of power straight to the wheels without any right-angle detours, reducing power-train friction and putting more grunt to the ground. Hey, it's a Honda. You wouldn't expect anything less.

  • Semi-dry-sump engine design

    • Our semi-dry sump design and overhead valve design give you an engine that's shorter from top to bottom.
    • The compact engine both lowers the center of gravity and increases ground clearance.
  • TraxLok

    • TraxLok is a shift-on-the-fly system that lets you choose between two- and four-wheel drive.
    • Two-wheel drive gives you lighter steering, while four-wheel drive maximizes traction.
  • Shaft Final Drive

  • Advanced Front Suspension

    • Honda's independent double-wishbone suspension allows each wheel to react to bumps and impacts separately for a smoother ride.
    • The standard KYB shock absorbers provide 6.7 inches of travel to cope with uneven surfaces.
  • Electric Power Steering (EPS

    • Electric Power Steering (EPS) is both speed- and torque-sensitive.
    • In addition to reducing steering effort, EPS also reduces kickback through the handlebar.
  • Electric Shift Program (ESP)

    • Upshifting or downshifting is easy and fast—just push one of two handlebar-mounted buttons.
    • ESP is a huge advantage when riding in heavy boots, or if your boots are covered in mud or snow.
  • Longitudinal Engine Layout
