MEDIA PRESS RELEASE


The Newest Addition to Honda’s ATV Armada: Introducing the 2009 Rancher AT.

Honda’s FourTrax Rancher® All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs)
have long been the best-selling line of ATVs in America.
Ride one and you’ll know why; since 1988, Honda has
sold well over a million Ranchers and their predecessor
models, the TRX300 family. These ATVs have offered a
near-perfect blend of features: two- or four-wheeldrive,
electric or conventional shifting, solid chassis,
dependable engines with wide torque bands,
powerplants with longitudinally mounted
crankshafts for maximum efficiency, sturdy racks
front and rear—the list goes on and on. Best of all,
they seem to run forever.


For 2009 though, Honda is elevating the list of Rancher
capabilities with the introduction of the new AT. Even
among Ranchers, the new AT is a real standout. Why?
Because of its exceptional combination of features.
Starting with the rugged and powerful liquid-cooled,
fuel-injected 420cc longitudinally mounted engine used
throughout the Rancher line, the AT adds an innovative
Honda automatic five-speed transmission featuring
auto-shifting or push-button manual shifting with
Honda’s Electric Shift Program (ESP®), Electric Power
Steering (EPS), independent rear suspension and
Honda’s selectable 4WD/2WD TraxLok® and rugged
torque-sensitive front differential. Not only do these
features embody the leading-edge of Honda’s ATV
technology, together they elevate the hard-work ethic
Ranchers are known for while also instilling a healthy
extra dose of recreational ability in the AT.


There are seven models in the 2009 Honda Rancher line
that can be grouped in four ways:
- Rancher 2WD
- Rancher with in/out 4x4 and optional Electric Power
Steering (EPS)
- Rancher with in/out 4x4 and Electric Shift Program
(ESP) and optional Electric Power Steering (EPS)
- Rancher AT with in/out 4x4, automatic five-speed
transmission with Electric Shift Program (ESP),
Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) and optional
Electric Power Steering (EPS).
All Rancher 4x4 models feature TraxLok, a system that
lets riders choose between two- and four-wheel drive.
They also offer a torque-sensing front differential. This
reduces torque steer in 4WD to yield a lower steering
effort and also provides superior traction compared to
the more familiar “limited-slip” front differentials found
on competing models.


START WITH THE AT ENGINE

To beef up power production in the new Rancher AT,
Honda engineers created an all-new cylinder head that
features higher compression and larger valves, both intake
and exhaust. The compression ratio is up just a bit, from
9.8:1 to 9.9:1, and the intake valve has grown from 35mm
to 38mm, while on the exhaust side a 33mm valve
replaces the former 30mm valve. As would be expected,
new, stronger valve springs accompany these changes.
The fuel injection system employs a 34mm throttle body
that incorporates a 12-hole injector to provide crisp
performance over a wide range of temperatures while also
automatically compensating for changes in elevation. The
AT’s brawny engine features both a semi-dry-sump design
and a camshaft that rides beneath the cylinder head.
These features serve to shorten the engine top-to-bottom,
and that does two things. First, it helps increase ground
clearance at the sump. Second, it keeps the Rancher’s
center of gravity low, which aids handling.
More important, though, is the way the engine mounts in
the chassis. As with all of Honda’s utility ATVs, the AT’s
engine is mounted with the crankshaft positioned
longitudinally in the frame: the crank runs front-to-back,
just as you see in a pickup truck with a V-8 engine. This
means the power flows straight out from the engine
through the driveshafts with no unnecessary right-angle
changes of power delivery that create frictional losses.
Thus, Honda’s 420cc powerplant puts more power to the
ground than competing designs with bigger engines.

ALL-NEW HONDA AUTOMATIC FIVE-SPEED
TRANSMISSION

Of all the AT’s innovative features, one really stands
above the rest: its new Honda automatic five-speed
transmission featuring unique dual-clutch technology. The
transmission is a first in the world of all-terrain vehicles
and offers several distinct advantages. Since it uses
conventional transmission gears, it’s as rugged and
durable as Honda’s conventional ATV manual
transmissions. That construction also makes it efficient.
Many competing automatics offer mechanical efficiencies
as low as 74 percent: only 74 percent of the power the
engine feeds into the transmission actually makes it to the
driveshaft. This new Honda automatic five-speed
transmission boasts the same high efficiency as Honda’s
manual transmissions, a huge advantage over competing
automatic transmissions.


The key to this is the transmission’s innovative dual-clutch
design. In this system, one clutch controls the gear pairs
for first, third, and fifth, while the second clutch controls
second, fourth, and Reverse. While different in execution,
if you think of two separate transmissions side-by-side
with two different clutches, all housed in the same case,


you’d have an idea of how it works. In execution, though,
the Honda system is much more elegant, eliminating the
duplicate shafts and gears.


In a conventional transmission, a single gear pair is locked
together (say, the input and output gears for first) while
the rest of the gears are out of engagement. In the AT’s
transmission, two gear pairs are engaged at the same
time, but the clutch controlling one pair of gears is
disengaged, while the clutch controlling the second pair is
fully engaged. When the rider shifts, the clutch controlling
the next set of gears is engaged and the transmission
shifts smoothly and quickly into the next gear.


Imagine an Olympic relay race with five runners, each of
whom has to hand a baton off to the next runner. If the
runners were gears in a conventional transmission, each
would slow down dramatically before handing the baton
over to the next runner, who starts from a dead stop.
Honda’s dual-clutch system shifting is more like what we
think a relay race should be: runner number two is already
in motion when runner number one hands the baton off—
a smooth, fast, efficient transition with no wasted time.
One advantage to using this design is extremely quick
shifts. With this system there’s less driveline lurching
between shifts, especially under load, which means the
AT’s chassis attitude remains more consistent during
shifts. Compared to other ATV automatics, the Honda
automatic five-speed transmission’s maintenance needs
are greatly reduced, while fuel economy and power
transfer improve. Like a conventional ATV manual gearbox,
there’s no handlebar-mounted clutch, so there’s no need
to worry about stalling—a special centrifugal clutch unit
with a low-rpm lockup takes care of that, as on all of
Honda’s conventional-transmission utility ATVs. Finally,
because this transmission is so compact, it takes no more
space than a Rancher manual transmission, which means
engineers could equip the AT with independent rear
suspension without compromising the chassis balance
Ranchers are known for.


The Rancher AT offers two shifting modes. The first is fully
automatic—the transmission shifts itself much as an
automotive transmission shifts. In ESP mode, the rider can
shift the gearbox with two handlebar-mounted buttons,
just like those found on other ESP-equipped Ranchers.
Some competing automatic transmissions offer no true
compression braking when traveling downhill. That’s not
the case with the AT’s design. In automatic mode, all of
the shifting is controlled by an Electronic Control Module
(ECM) which measures (among other things) throttle
opening and driveshaft speed. If the speed drops, the
system will downshift itself, maintaining true controlled
compression braking.

ELECTRIC POWER STEERING
Another feature that sets the AT apart is its Electric
Power Steering, or EPS. Introduced on a few select
models in 2007, for 2009 this feature is beginning to
spread throughout Honda’s ATV lineup. For more details
on this innovative system, see the EPS technical feature
on page 14 of this press kit.

INDEPENDENCE DAY
While there are plenty of other small updates to the
AT’s engine and chassis, the big change is the shift to a
fully Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) system. This
system lets each rear wheel travel independently from
the other over uneven ground, which increases both ride
quality and traction. The AT’s system is unique in that it
did not require a total redesign of the existing Rancher
chassis. Sure, there are some minor detail changes like
mounting tabs, but the IRS was built to minimize
engineering changes to this rugged and proven chassis.
In principle the system is similar to that used on the
Honda Rincon®, but the rear brake disc is now mounted
on the rear driveshaft, so unsprung weight is kept to a
minimum. The system shines during sport riding, or over
rock gardens, dry streambeds, or when traversing logs in
the trail.


Electric Power Steering. Independent Rear Suspension.

Honda’s revolutionary automatic five-speed
transmission. Any one of these three technologies
would have been sufficient to move the AT to the head
of its class. Together, they put the Rancher AT in a class
of its own. With the same great workhorse capabilities
that Ranchers are famous for, plus a whole new
dimension of recreational ability, the AT simply doesn’t
compare—it’s miles ahead.


Many of us are familiar with automotive hydraulic
power-steering units that use belts and pumps. With
Honda’s EPS there’s none of that: The Honda system
minimizes size and weight—important considerations for
ATV design—while simultaneously taking advantage of
today’s processing power and Honda engineering to
custom-tailor the application to an ATV.


The EPS system monitors steering torque and vehicle
speed to adjust the levels of steering assist and feel.
When stopped or at low speeds, it provides more
assistance for a light steering effort. As speed increases,
the amount of assistance is reduced to provide the
appropriate level of feedback. Perhaps the most
significant benefit is the system’s ability to provide
consistent steering feel in both two- and four-wheel-drive
operation. As a secondary benefit, the EPS system
reduces fatigue because it greatly reduces kickback
through the handlebars in rough or rocky terrain.


Honda’s ingenious design utilizes a torsion bar inside the
steering shaft that moves a sensor up or down in
response to steering torque applied by the rider. The
sensor detects the rate of movement and direction and
sends the information to an ECM. The ECM, following the
preprogrammed parameters of a digital control map,
regulates current to the electric-assist motor. By providing
more or less output assist torque to the output shaft, the
motor effectively helps the rider by augmenting or
minimizing the amount of steering assistance. The Honda
EPS system also includes two maps: one for two-wheeldrive
and one for four-wheel-drive, so the steering feel the
rider perceives is consistent regardless of mode.


To manage kickback and bump-steer, several measures
are employed. First, the ECM “reads” countersteer torque
that results when terrain-induced forces through the
steering shaft counteract rider input. In this instance, the
motor’s electromagnetic force provides a stabilizing
resistance. Even though EPS function may seem
unnoticeable at times, the effect is available at all speeds.
In addition, rubber dampers on the worm gear shaft,
designed to reduce steering free-play, give the system a
direct, natural steering feel at all speeds and provide
additional cushioning when kickback occurs.


In practice, Honda’s EPS reduces rider fatigue when
maneuvering through rough terrain, rocks, washes and
ruts. Because the system resists deflection, it in turn
reduces steering effort.


The Honda EPS system is mounted inline with the
steering shaft, and its weight is carried low and close to
the AT’s center of gravity so handling is not compromised.
The lighter steering feel more than makes up for the extra
weight. The self-contained ECM is positioned behind the
radiator. Adding icing to the cake, Honda’s EPS system is
also self-contained, totally enclosed and watertight,
eliminating the need for any maintenance whatsoever.
