Story by Staff, Photography by Honda, Jul. 14, 2009

Honda has revealed its 2010 ATV lineup and though you won’t see any new models the FourTrax family of utility ATVs did receive some upgrades.

Chief among the changes for 2010 is the addition of pre-load adjustable front and rear suspension on the FourTrax Rancher 4x4 and FourTrax Rancher 4x4 ES. Also, much of the FourTrax Rancher family received a new seat with added foam. A new rack design is also found on the FourTrax Rancher family, which Honda says makes for easier cargo lashing.

Returning unchanged for 2010 is the flagship FourTrax Rincon and Rincon GPScape, along with the FourTrax Foreman Rubicon, FourTrax Recon and Recon ES.

Introduced in 2009, Honda’s Big Red remains in its original form, but a new Olive color joins Red and Natural Gear Camouflage. The Olive Big Red will be available in dealerships in September and will retail for $11,699. Big Red customers can also choose from more than 30 Honda Genuine Accessories, including windshields, tops and bumpers.

Honda’s TRX lineup of sport ATVs, including the TRX700XX, TRX450ER, TRX450R, TRX400X, TRX300X, TRX250X, and TRX90X are all unchanged for 2010.
