Honda has made a name for its hard built all weather ATVs. The 2018 Honda Foreman 500 can undeniably be the ideal ATV for adventurists to ride through rugged mountain terrains and difficult-to-move forest trails.
2018 Honda Foreman 500 – Looks and Shape
Rough riders demand a tough built with strong headlights. The new Honda Foreman 500 2018 would use 35/35 watt bulbs for both its front fascia and rear bulbs. It is definitely an upgrade over the previous 30/30 watt headlights.
To prevent the rider from getting dirty with debris and dust, this model comes with a full length skid plate. With a broad ground clearance of 9.4 inches, the Foreman treads over any obstacle with swag! Its overall aggressive appearance and splendid curves offer a rider the adrenaline rush required to brave jarring terrain.
2018 Honda Foreman 500 – Engine Specs
This upcoming model will draw power from a tubrocharged 475 cc liquid-cooled OHV engine with an output of 28.7 hp and 38 lb-ft. torque. It would still maintain the alterable suspension for easy movement through jarring terrains.
Semi-dry placement will decrease some unnecessary weight from this upcoming ATV. Honda has confirmed an augmented Trax Lock button for smoothly shifting from a 2-wheel drive to 4-wheel drive mode.
There will be a 10% improvement in fuel economy, keeping the performance intact.
Making the Rider Comfortable
Honda is trying to improve upon the Electric Power Steering (EPS), one push Auto transmission. This would be a great comfort for tackling terrains of all kinds. However, the manual foot transmission shift would still be available.
The speed override mode is a plus point to overcome mud and dikes with ease. And the rider seat is broad and ergonomic for utmost comfort irrespective of the terrain.
