Engineered For Comfort And Confidence—All Day Long.
FourTrax® Foreman® Rubicon has always been a rider favorite. And here’s the best news: for 2015; the Rubicon is better than ever; with new features and six models that give you a wide variety of choices. Its superior engineering gives you the confidence you need to tackle tough trails; while the Rubicon’s IRS provides day-long ride comfort and excellent traction on uneven ground.
All six Rubicon models share the same 500-class engine as our fourTrax® Foreman® 4x4--tough; proven; and efficient.. Two transmission choices—a tough conventional ATV gearbox (the only manual shift IRS on the market) and our revolutionary automatic dual-clutch transmission—let you choose how you want to get down the trail.
Other new features include improved electric power steering on our EPS models; more comfortable seating; improved reverse controls; new racks with increased cargo capacities; increased towing capacity; an inboard rear disc brake; new tires and wheels; and new Honda Phantom Camo® color choices. There’s even a deluxe model that features red A-arms; springs and black machined; cast aluminum wheels.
Features may include:
Honda®’s six 2015 Rubicon models may look similar; but offer a wide variety of options: Automatic DCT or manual transmission; standard or power steering; and deluxe versions that feature aluminum wheels and red suspension components. All use the same great engines; chassis; all disc brakes and independent rear suspensions; and all come standard with the fit; finish; innovation; and attention to manufacturing detail that only Honda® can offer.
Strong internals; fast shifts; 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 Drive/Low subtransmssion. We also offer a standard; smooth-shifting manual transmission—a Honda® exclusive in an IRS machine.
Preload adjustable shocks allow you to optimize suspension performance for various load conditions.
The Rubicon’s Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) returns two big benefits: First; it helps ensure constant tire contact with the ground for superior traction; and second; it gives you an ultra-smooth ride over rough terrain; so you don’t get beat up on the trail.
Got a tough job to tackle? No problem—the Rubicon is up to the task. With a towing capacity that’s been boosted to over 1300 pounds; the new Rubicon can really pull a load.
The Rubicon gets re-engineered steel racks for 2015: Front Rack capacity is now 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.
Like a full-sized four-wheel-drive truck; Rubicon DCT models feature a drive/low range in its gearbox; so you can choose the perfect gear for crawling over technical terrain; pulling heavy loads; or cruising on smoother trails.
Honda® TraxLok® 2WD/4WD system offers 2WD; 4WD; and 4WD mode with locking front differential to optimize traction. TraxLok® system incorporates a Speed Override mode that can be engaged when the front differential is locked; which allows increased wheel speed under severe conditions such as deep mud.
