2017 Honda Foreman Rubicon (TRX500FM6) Because A Good Ride Can Last All Day Long.
It doesn’t matter whether we’re talking about architecture, transportation, clothing, food or music: the real greats stand the test of time. And when you’re talking about all-terrain vehicles, that test means two things: how many hours a day you want to ride, and how long your ATV lasts.
The Honda FourTrax Foreman Rubicon knocks it out of the park on both counts. It’s a premium ATV that places a premium on rider comfort—all-day comfort. And we have a great selection of Rubicon models with a wide range of features, so you can pick the one that’s perfect for you. And for 2017, we even have a model with the paint color applied over the bodywork—a first for a Honda ATV.
Every Rubicon uses the same 500-class engine—tough, proven and efficient. You get to choose between two transmission options: a rugged conventional-type ATV gearbox that makes the Rubicon the only manual-shift ATV with Independent Rear Suspension on the market, and our revolutionary automatic dual-clutch transmission with new, smoother shift map and featuring strong steel-gear internals.
Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) is about more than just comfort and a plush ride, though. The Rubicon’s superior suspension engineering gives you the confidence you need to tackle rough trails, while providing day-long ride comfort and excellent traction on uneven ground.
And there’s tons more to talk about: refined controls, strong steel racks, inboard rear-disc brake, available Electric Power Steering (EPS), and even models featuring red A-arms, springs and black cast and machined aluminum wheels. But no matter which Rubicon you choose, one thing’s for certain: Once you start riding, the only reason you’ll want to stop is to refuel.
