Available on our Electric Shift Program (ESP) model, this single lever is a big improvement when it comes to convenience and ease of operation. It’s especially useful when you have to shift from forward to reverse repeatedly, like when you’re plowing snow.
When you’re in 4WD mode and you need to get the power to both front wheels, just flip the switch on the electronic differential lock to maximize available traction. The vehicle display will tell you when the diff lock is fully engaged.
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.
Both speed- and torque-sensitive, Honda's Electric Power Steering (on Foreman EPS models) 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.
Upshifting and downshifting has never been this easy: With Honda's optional ESP system, you get the ease of push-button shifting 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 mud- or snow-covered boots.
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.
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.
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.
Designed to add even more coverage to the Foreman’s front axles and outboard CV joints, the driveshaft guards are another example of how Honda engineers sweat the small details to give you one of the best ATVs on the planet.
