TOUGH LOVE? HOW ABOUT TOUGH COMFORT.
Remember when people used to say that something rode like a truck? The same went for ATVs—some of them left you pretty beat up after a few hours in the saddle. Not the Honda FourTrax Rubicon—it’s all about working hard; but giving you a plush; comfortable ride. That’s because every Rubicon comes with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) for a smooth ride and all-day comfort. Plus; we give every Rubicon a single-cylinder 518cc engine; tough front and rear racks; an easy-to-use reverse system; bold styling; a handy utility box; and more. With four models; it’s easy to choose the right mix of features; like Honda’s automatic DCT or a manual transmission and power steering. Rides like a truck? No way—it rides like a Rubicon!
Features may include:
Every 2021 Foreman Rubicon model features a tough 518cc engine with the horsepower and torque to 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!
Tucked up inboard and out of harm’s way; the Rubicon’s inboard disc brake reduces unsprung weight and offers improved ground clearance.
Available on our Automatic DCT models; this single lever is convenient and easy to operate. It’s especially useful when you have to shift from forward to reverse repeatedly; like when you’re plowing snow.
Strong internals; smooth shift mapping; excellent control; true 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 transmission—a Honda exclusive in an IRS machine. Or opt for a rugged conventional-type manual ATV gearbox.
The Rubicon’s racks feature strong; steel construction and a large flat area. Better yet; they’re designed to integrate with our Honda Pro-Connect™ system. You can quickly attach and detach accessories like our cargo boxes; without tools; for added flexibility and convenience.
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.
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 gives you a smooth ride over rough terrain; so you don’t get beat up on the trail.
Preload adjustable shocks allow you to optimize suspension performance for various load conditions.
