New engine highlights changes for 2012
For 2012 Honda’s FourTrax Foreman line of 4×4 ATVs boasts a brand-new engine plus a re-engineered chassis featuring a new single-shock rear-suspension system.
Now equipped with an all-new and sophisticated liquid-cooled 475cc single-cylinder OHV four-stroke engine, the Foreman also features a new fuel injection system with 36mm throttle body for improved throttle response, consistent performance at high altitude, and hassle-free cold-weather starting.
The rear suspension system is lighter than before, thanks to a new design centered around a single shock for increased comfort, precision and work capabilities. Also, Honda says a shorter wheelbase aids handling and helps produce a tighter turning radius.
Completing its 2012 transformation, the FourTrax Foreman 4×4 also features what Honda is calling new rugged and tough looking body work.
