Performing well in disparate realms is no easy feat, but the Foreman Rubicon achieves the right balance, in part through the following updates: Independent Rear Suspension Days with long hours in the saddle are when riders really notice how well an ATV absorbs bumps. This improved compliance means the tires can stay in better contact with the ground and more readily maintain traction. The result is amazing versatility, enabling users to enjoy the outdoors in a variety of ways with all-day ride comfort. DCT helps maximize low-end power, with the vehicle reacting immediately to throttle input, which makes it great for tight trails and rocky terrain, where having power on demand is extremely useful.

Performing well in disparate realms is no easy feat, but the Foreman Rubicon achieves the right balance, in part through the following updates: Independent Rear Suspension Days with long hours in the saddle are when riders really notice how well an ATV absorbs bumps. This improved compliance means the tires can stay in better contact with the ground and more readily maintain traction.
The result is amazing versatility, enabling users to enjoy the outdoors in a variety of ways with all-day ride comfort. DCT helps maximize low-end power, with the vehicle reacting immediately to throttle input, which makes it great for tight trails and rocky terrain, where having power on demand is extremely useful. At least as important would be getting the entire package to work efficiently as a well-balanced whole, with matched suspension and engine performance.
Front and rear suspension travel were increased significantly to 7. The all-new double-cradle steel frame was also designed to provide enough torsional stiffness for good performance during aggressive trail riding while still offering plush character for all-day comfort.
When designing the new Foreman Rubicons, Honda engineers worked closely with Maxxis tire technicians to develop a special tire that would be compliant without sacrificing handling or precise steering. In addition, the electronic fuel injection has been remapped for optimization, and importantly, the Automatic DCT gearbox is inherently more efficient than a standard CVT design. The grips have an optional heated accessory as well, a welcome detail in cool weather.
The bodywork is stylish and rugged, and it provides excellent protection from mud. In automatic mode, sensors monitor variables like vehicle speed and the ECU can select from a broad range of shift points.
Engaging it is as simple as flicking a switch with the right thumb. When the front differential is locked, a Speed Override mode can be engaged, allowing increased wheel speed in challenging conditions like deep mud. The system has three mounting points instead of the previous two, increasing rigidity. A lantern-style, handlebar-mounted 50 watt assist light enables riders to direct illumination where they choose, augmenting the two fender-mounted headlights.
Easing the workload A new dual-purpose lever simplifies backing up and parking: pull the lever to engage reverse, or push it to set the parking brake. The front and rear racks have both been redesigned to increase functionality and versatility, while weight-carrying capacity has been increased 99 lbs.
Flat steel plates are incorporated into the racks for more surface area to secure loads, and there are multiple tie-down points. The frame has a heavy-duty hitch, and towing capacity has been increased significantly, to 1, lbs.
Towing heavy loads is simplified by the sub-transmission, which effectively adds an extra five low gears on the Automatic DCT models. Meanwhile, the front bumper wraps around the headlights and has integrated mounts for an accessory winch. A neodymium magnet stator design helps the new, more powerful AC generator to produce more electricity, enabling running of more Honda Genuine Accessories.
During the interim, technicians had spent countless hours on the project in the virtual world, performing computer-aided engineering CAE and finite-element analysis FEA tests to design components and evaluate performance before beginning the prototype phase.
Now they finally had their first physical prototype, and they were eager to evaluate real-world performance. It was in this setting that Alexander and his colleagues tried out the prototype for the first time. Alexander recalls the conversation when the riders removed their helmets at a ride break. It was a really positive first outing.
