NEW, BIGGER, 518cc ENGINE
We gave the FourTrax Foreman a bigger engine this year, thanks to a 4mm increase in bore size. The result? More horsepower, more torque, and even better overall performance. The increased power also gives your Foreman better hill-climbing ability.
SEMI-DRY-SUMP ENGINE DESIGN
Compact and light-weight, the Foreman's overhead-valve, semi-dry-sump design creates an engine that's not only shorter from top to bottom, but one that enhances handling by lowering the center of gravity and increasing ground clearance.
NEW ELECTRIC REVERSE
Available on our Electric Shift Program (ESP) model, this single lever is a big improvement when it comes to convenience and ease of operation. It’s especially useful when you have to shift from forward to reverse repeatedly, like when you’re plowing snow.
ELECTRONIC DIFFERENTIAL LOCK
When you’re in 4WD mode and you need to get the power to both front wheels, just flip the switch on the electronic differential lock to maximize available traction. The vehicle display will tell you when the diff lock is fully engaged.
Our rock-solid TraxLok system lets you select either 2WD or 4WD, giving you the freedom to choose between lighter steering (in 2WD) and maximizing available traction (in 4WD) when you need it most.
ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS)
Both speed- and torque-sensitive, Honda's Electric Power Steering (on Foreman EPS models) excels at reducing steering effort and kickback through the handlebar. It's a big help when riding in ruts, over rocks or on long side hills. A specially engineered mounting system for the EPS unit increases strength and rigidity.
ELECTRIC SHIFT PROGRAM (ESP)
Upshifting and downshifting has never been this easy: With Honda's optional ESP system, you get the ease of push-button shifting with the strength of a conventional transmission. To shift up or down all you have to do is push one of two handlebar-mounted buttons. Since there's no foot-shift lever, ESP is also a bonus when riding in heavy mud- or snow-covered boots.
By incorporating an oxygen sensor into the system, the Foreman delivers both better fuel efficiency and lower emissions. The ECU instantly adjusts the fuel injection mapping to match riding conditions for maximum fuel efficiency. The result: more time on the trail and more money in your pocket.
Our time-tested Honda engine is liquid-cooled to provide more consistent operating temperatures and more power than a comparable air-cooled engine. This adds up to better performance and longer engine life.
LONGITUDINAL ENGINE LAYOUT
By orienting the engine crankshaft front to back, we route the flow of power straight to the wheels without any unnecessary right-angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more grunt to the ground.
WIDER FRONT DRIVESHAFT GUARDS
Designed to add even more coverage to the Foreman’s front axles and outboard CV joints, the new guards are another example of how Honda engineers strive to constantly keep improving one of the best ATVs on the planet.
The Foreman 4x4 rear swingarm with its solid axle provides superior capability for towing and hauling. Its long suspension stroke and plush seat let you tackle your favorite trail or the toughest chores in comfort all day long.
NEW FRONT AND REAR CARGO RACKS
The Foreman’s racks feature strong, steel construction, but now they include a larger flat area. Better yet, they’re designed to integrate with our new Honda Pro-Connect™ system. You can quickly attach and detach accessories like our cargo boxes, without tools, for added flexibility and convenience.
Your exploring or work doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. Powerful twin headlights offer excellent illumination for the task at hand.
EASY SERVICE ACCESS
The Foreman’s body styling is not only aggressive, it’s functional. It features a tank and side covers that come off in one piece and without using any tools. That means quick and easy access to the engine.
In addition to the basics, the Foreman’s instrument panel offers extra information: a clock, water temperature gauge, our “maintenance minder” system and indicator for the electronic differential lock.
NEW 1.9 FRONT UTILITY BOX
The perfect size for small items you want to access quickly—like a cell phone, GPS, or a spare pair of gloves.
POWERFUL ALTERNATOR OUTPUT
An alternator offering extra output means the Foreman is capable of handling more of your accessory power needs.
NEW ASSIST HEADLIGHT
We’re talking about the Foreman’s third headlight here—the one that turns with the handlebar. We’ve upped the power for 2020 to 50 watts, and updated the styling too.
SUPERIOR CARGO CAPACITY
With strong, steel cargo racks front and rear, both offering increased flat surface area than earlier models, the Foreman is ready to carry what you need.
Our Foreman models’ bodywork still gives these ATVs a tough look that’s designed to last, shrugging off the scrapes and dings of the job or the woods. But now they look even better, with new color choices, crisp, bold lines and powerful, all-new graphics that really make a statement.
A plush seat and open rider triangle (bars/seat/pegs) teams up with the suspension to really treat you right. Superior ergonomics have always been a Honda priority, and the Foreman is no exception. With thick, soft foam, it’s supremely comfortable.
