Honda has been building the Foreman for what seems like Fore-ever (maybe a rename should be applied).
It has always been simple, uncomplicated and very good at meeting the needs of recreational riders, utility riders and hunters and anglers.
There are a billion old ones still in service and thats because Honda has sold about a zillion of them.
Later models have electric shifting and EPS but the semi-automatic, transverse engine, overhead valve design is still pretty much the same as always.
Long life and durability are not to be taken lightly and although the industry spins on the latest and greatest technology, the Foreman continues to persevere.
