More 2014 Models From Honda
Excitement continues to build as American Honda introduces more new 2014 models for off-road enthusiasts. This ongoing infusion of innovative engineering highlights the commitment Honda is making to consumers, as more new models bring ever-higher capabilities across the board.
“For this 2014 model announcement, Honda is continuing its push to bring new and diverse machines to market while also delivering great value,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “Here we’re unveiling a new generation of our hugely popular FourTrax Rancher and FourTrax Foreman lines of ATVs with completely new frames, suspension, styling and more for elevated levels of performance. We’re also introducing two versions of the all-new CRF125F that features an electric-start engine along with two different wheel sizes to replace the CRF80 and CRF100F. The CRF125F offers an increase in engine displacement and a friendly, easy-to-use powerband, but also aggressive new styling and a brand-new chassis with upgraded front and rear suspension for optimum performance.”
“These new models, along with additional Honda favorites returning for the new model year, demonstrate Honda’s commitment to providing more choices to our customers, and we’ll be introducing more exciting new models in the coming months as Honda continues to lead the expansion of the powersports market.”
FourTrax Rancher Series
Over the years, Honda’s liquid-cooled fuel-injected 420cc FourTrax Rancher series has built a wide-ranging, loyal and enthusiastic following, thanks in large part to the multiple configurations that are available to meet many varied rider needs.
For 2014, these FourTrax Rancher models feature an all-new chassis with a redesigned frame featuring new, longer-travel suspension for enhanced rider comfort plus outstanding performance over rugged terrain. That new chassis is wrapped in all-new bodywork with distinctively aggressive styling.
The multiple choices in drivetrain styles remain; the 4WD FourTrax Rancher 4×4 ES features Honda’s highly regarded Electric Shift Program (ESP) that makes gear shifts as easy as pushing a button, while the 4WD FourTrax Rancher Automatic DCT features Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), a five-speed fully automatic transmission that also gives the rider the option of ESP mode.
The FourTrax Rancher 4×4 offers riders 4WD with a traditional manual-shift gearbox. The two-wheel-drive FourTrax Rancher available with manual or electric shift offers terrific performance, at an extremely affordable price point.
Most of these models also offer the option of Electric Power Steering—all considered, it adds up to a wealth of wonderful choices for off-road work and play. Colors: Honda Phantom Camo, Olive, Red, Orange; Price: TBD; Availability: Fall
FourTrax Foreman Series
For years, the FourTrax Foreman series of ATVs has carved out an impeccable reputation as hard-working partners that also know how to have fun when it’s time for a little recreation.
Now that reputation grows stronger than ever as the next generation of FourTrax Foremans arrives for 2014 with an all-new chassis, suspension, locking front differential, styling and more.
As before, the FourTrax Foreman 4×4 ES boasts Hondas renowned Electric Shift Program (ESP) that delivers push-button convenience for shifting, while the manual-shift FourTrax Foreman 4×4 is the machine of choice for riders who prefer the more conventional gearbox.
Both models can be had with the option of Electric Power Steering as well. No matter which configuration you may favor, the FourTrax Foreman shines brighter than ever as the ideal machine to tackle a hard day’s work while also pulling double duty when you head out for that weekend adventure.
