Honda’s second four-wheel announcement of the 2017 powersports model year includes three ATV models: the Independent Rear Suspension-equipped FourTrax Foreman Rubicon 4×4, the faithful FourTrax Foreman 4×4 and the youth-focused TRX90X.
“It’s great to welcome these popular ATVs back to the 2017 lineup,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda. “Together, the Rubicon, Foreman and TRX90X appeal to a broad spectrum of users, perfectly demonstrating why Honda continues to lead the market in ATV sales.”
FourTrax Foreman Rubicon
As Honda’s top 500-class ATV, the FourTrax Foreman Rubicon represents an ideal balance of work and play, and for 2017 it features bright, durable painted plastic for a striking look—a first for a Honda ATV. Since its 2015 redesign, the Rubicon has received a number of accolades including awards from media outlets.
The 475cc engine has a five-speed transmission that provides confidence and reliability on tough trails, while the model’s Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) and modern chassis place a premium on all-day comfort. The four-model family of Foreman Rubicons allows customers to choose from a number of options, including standard or automatic DCT transmission and electric power steering.

FourTrax Foreman 4×4
The dependable workhorse of the ATV world, Honda’s rugged Foreman is up for any job, with a fuel-injected 500-class engine and a strong chassis with long-travel, swingarm suspension. Riders can switch between two- and four-wheel drive with a push of the TraxLok button, and the front differential can be locked when maximizing available traction is needed.
Two Foreman models are offered—a base version and one with electric shifting and electric power steering—and they’re available in a number of colors, including a new Vapor White option.

The smallest model in Honda’s sport ATV family provides rugged reliability for years’ worth of fun, and with revised rating from Y-12 to Y-10, parents and kids can share in the fun even earlier. An effortless push-button electric start powers the 86cc engine, which provides smooth power delivery and simple operation for the newest riders.
That and the semi-automatic four-speed transmission make riding enjoyable for young Red Riders. For 2017, the TRX90X is available in two color options, including the traditional Red and now Olive with camouflage accents.
