RIDE EASY. WORK HARD.
Doing things the smart way saves a lot of sweat and frustration. That’s one of the reasons Honda ATVs are so popular—because they’re such a smart solution. And that’s especially true with our FourTrax Foreman Rubicon family of all-terrain vehicles. With four models in the lineup, it’s easy to choose the right mix of premium features, like our exclusive automatic DCT transmission or our conventional ATV semi-automatic manual. Available electric power steering is a perfect example of working smarter, and so is independent rear suspension (IRS) which is standard on all models and gives you a smooth ride even over rough terrain. Best of all, every Foreman Rubicon features the same reliable 518cc Honda engine, with power and efficiency that punch way above their class.
- ULTRA COMFORTABLE SEAT: For all-day ride comfort, the Rubicon’s seat features thick foam and a seat cover with a grippier texture. It’s one of the best seats we’ve ever engineered for an ATV.
- FRONT/REAR CARGO RACKS: The Rubicon’s racks feature strong steel construction and a large flat area. Better still, they’re designed so it’s easy to attach and remove cargo boxes and other accessories in our Honda Pro-Connect™ line, adding to your Rubicon’s versatility.
- DIGITAL DISPLAY WITH MAINTENANCE MINDER: Digital meter display includes a Maintenance Minder system that signals when it’s time for service. Other functions include trip odometer, hour meter, gear position-indicator, fuel gauge, clock, and 2WD/4WD.
- 1.9-LITER FRONT UTILITY BOX: Its the perfect size for small items you want to access quickly—like a cell phone, GPS, or a pair of gloves.
- PARKING BRAKE: Mounted up on the left handlebar, the Rubicon’s parking brake lever is tough, simple and easy to use.
- TRANSMISSION CHOICES: AUTOMATIC DCT OR MANUAL: Strong internals, smooth shift mapping, excellent control, true engine compression-braking capability in steep terrain and an automatic program that upshifts and downshifts while you concentrate on riding—the Honda automatic dual-clutch transmission has it all, including a low-range subtransmission—a Honda exclusive in an IRS machine. And if you’d rather have a manual-style foot-shift ATV gearbox, we have three Foreman Rubicon models that will be right for you.
- ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS): Both speed- and torque-sensitive, our Electric Power Steering (on Rubicon EPS models) excels at reducing steering effort and kickback through the handlebar. It's a big help when riding in rugged terrain like ruts, rocks and other challenging environments. A specially engineered mounting system for the EPS unit increases strength and rigidity.
- ALTERNATOR OUTPUT: Thanks to the stator design, the powerful alternator produces sufficient amount of electricity, so you can run more Honda Accessories.
- TRAXLOK®: Our TraxLok® 2WD/4WD system offers three modes: 2WD, 4WD, and 4WD with locking front differential to optimize traction. TraxLok also incorporates a Speed Override mode that can be engaged when the front differential is locked, allowing increased wheel speed under severe conditions such as deep mud.
- LONGITUDINAL ENGINE LAYOUT: By orienting the crankshaft front to back in the chassis in our ATV and side-by-side engines, 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.
- HONDA QUALITY: In addition to all the features that show up on a spec chart, your new Honda Rubicon offers something nobody else can match: our well-deserved reputation for quality, superior engineering, and long-term reliability. It’s part of everything we do. You have plenty of choices, but when you choose a Honda, you’re can rest assured that you’re getting the best.
- INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION (IRS): The Rubicon’s Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) returns two big benefits: First, it helps ensure constant tire contact with the ground for superior traction; second, it helps give you a smooth ride over rough terrain, so you don’t get beat up on the trail.
- FRONT & REAR PRELOAD ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION: Preload adjustable shocks allow you to optimize suspension performance for various load conditions.
- MAXXIS TIRES: Designed to work perfectly with the Rubicon’s Independent Rear Suspension, the Maxxis tires feature an aggressive tread pattern for excellent traction in mud, sand and rocky terrain.
- WIDE FRONT DRIVESHAFT GUARDS: Designed to add even more coverage to the Rubicon’s front axles and outboard CV joints, the driveshaft guards are another example of how Honda engineers sweat the small details to give you one of the best ATVs on the planet.
- POWERFUL 518CC ENGINE: Every Foreman Rubicon model features a tough 518cc engine with the horsepower and torque you need for great performance. This power also gives it better hill-climbing ability. Bottom line: Work or play, this is one ATV that always delivers!
- INBOARD REAR DISC BRAKE: Tucked up inboard and out of harm’s way, the Rubicon’s inboard disc brake reduces unsprung weight and offers improved ground clearance.
- FRONT GRILLE: Sure, the Rubicon is a hard working ATV, but there's no law saying it can't look good too. And a big part of the Rubicon's strong presence is its aggressive grille styling.
- STYLING: Our Foreman Rubicon 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. Crisp lines, powerful graphics and great color choices all ensure your Foreman Rubicon makes a bold a statement.
- RACK CAPACITY: The Rubicon has sporty, strong steel racks: Front rack capacity is a full 99 pounds, and the rear rack can hold up to a whopping 187 pounds. Multiple tie-down points also make it easier than ever to secure your loads.
- TOWING CAPACITY: Got a tough job to tackle? No problem—the Rubicon is up to the task. With a towing capacity that’s over 1300 pounds, the Rubicon can really pull a load.
