Press Release –
Honda announced that Honda R&D Japan has developed an Electric Power Steering (EPS) system for All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs).
This system monitors steering torque and vehicle speed to adjust the levels of steering assist and feel.
When stopped or at low speeds, it requires light steering effort, and as speeds increase, the amount of assist is adjusted to provide the appropriate level of feedback.
An ATV with this Honda technology is easier to manoeuvre through rough terrain, rocks, and ruts while at the same time, reducing rider fatigue. Honda’s first application of EPS on a production ATV is anticipated in the near future.
Information on availability, specifications and pricing will be made available in early September.
