When we look to the future of off-road we see not only equipment for sport or recreational use but for machines that will serve a purpose to make our lives easier during those hard work days as well as more enjoyable. The engineers at Honda are consistently thinking out of the box to find ways to make these machines fit our needs.

For model year 2014 the Honda ATV and SxS line has more interesting developments, but it is the preceding years of development that made Honda stand out from the crowd. The innovations on the machines we love as well as select models we ride listed below are just a few developments from Honda that resonate with its loyal customers today.

Even as a Honda fan, I have to state that some of these did not start on Hondas, for example, the first shaft driven ATV was the Yamaha Tri-Moto YTM200E “yamahauler” of 1983, a full year before Honda’s “Big Red” ATC200es got the shaft. Also, independent suspension, not a Honda first, granted, Honda did have a first in independent front suspension in its 1984 Trx200, the first full independent suspension on an ATV was thanks to Arctic Cat, in 2002. The first sport ATV, yes, with the 200x ATC, but the first sport quad? No. The 1985 Suzuki QuadSport 230 was first there. And the first utvs were from Kawasaki and John Deere. (Mule and Gator respectively) I love my Honda, but get your facts straight, unless you meant just firsts for Honda, then OK.
