MEDIA PRESS RELEASE

2009 BIGRED PRESS INFORMATION


Imagine a Side-by-Side that features Honda’s legendary
fit and finish, innovations developed by the
same company that invented the ATV, technologies
that blend Honda’s vast automobile expertise with
new ideas designed to revolutionize the Side-by-
Side category. Now add unprecedented utility capabilities
with a healthy dose of recreational ability,
and you’ve scratched the surface of what Big Red
is all about.


What sets Big Red apart from other SxS vehicles is
Honda’s focus on quality and convenience features,
which makes Big Red more enjoyable
whether you’re running a farm, ranch or worksite or
heading to your favorite fishing hole.


SPACE AND CONVENIENCE TO SPARE
Big Red’s roomy cab features rubber-mounted
seats with adjustable backs designed to comfortably
fit a wide range of body types while also reducing
fatigue on long drives. The design of the 2009 Honda
Big Red three-point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR)
seat belts are similar to automotive type belt systems.
The belt deploys from a housing that features
a topside slot narrow enough to resist entry
of debris, and the bottom has a port to allow debris
to exit and reduce accumulation within the belt
housing. Net result: consistent operation and
longer seat belt life.
An automotive-type fuel system shut-off, plus Big
Red’s uniquely designed, four-pillar, six-piece
41.3mm-diameter (1.6-inch) Occupant Protection
Structure (OPS) provides occupants with peace of
mind. Big Red’s interior also features thoughtful
touches such as a waterproof accessory socket
ideally placed between the bucket seats for easy
access to 12-volt power, a glove box and dash storage
for quick access to small items.
Honda engineers paid particular attention to minimizing
maintenance chores on Big Red as well. In
addition to equipping Big Red with a maintenance–
free battery and shaft final drive, Honda engineers
located the engine oil-filler and dipstick under the
driver’s seat, which detaches quickly. Access to the
air filter is as easy as lifting the tilt-bed, which reveals
the high-mounted air filter box.
Powered by a 675cc fuel-injected four-valve engine
that features shaft drive and three different selectable
drive modes, Big Red boasts a spacious tilt
bed measuring 33.0 by 52.6 by 10.3 inches, fully independent
front and rear suspension, four-wheel
disc brakes, a wide track for confidence-inspiring
handling and a host of available accessories designed
to deliver long-lasting durability for commercial
and recreational applications.

700-CLASS POWER
At the very heart of Big Red you’ll find a powerful
four-stroke liquid-cooled OHV 675cc engine that
feeds power to the wheels through a three-speed
automatic transmission. This big-bore single-cylinder
powerplant features a bore and stroke of
102mm x 82.6mm. To reduce engine height, lower
the center of gravity and enhance handling, the
camshaft is located adjacent to the cylinder head
and pushrods are employed to actuate the valves.

 

This four-valve cylinder head design provides a
broad powerband for plenty of grunt. In addition, a
liquid-cooled oil cooler aids heat dispersion in Big
Red’s engine. The liquid in this system warms
quicker than the engine oil, so it also helps to speed
the warm-up process on cold days. And by cooling
the oil on hot days, this system helps to maintain
optimum engine operating temperature over a wide
range of climate conditions. Additionally, Big Red
features a high-mount radiator located behind the
front grill where mud is less likely to clog the fins,
reducing the effectiveness of the radiator.

FUEL INJECTION: BUILT FOR THE REAL WORLD
A key element in this engine’s consistent and convenient
performance is Honda’s programmed fuel
injection system (PGM-FI). Big Red’s PGM-FI system
uses a 40mm throttle body and a high-tech 12-
hole fuel injector to maximize fuel atomization.
In general, fuel injection provides Big Red the ability
to adjust to real-world variables in a seamless,
automatic fashion—all of which make the driving
experience that much more effortless. Beginning
with a marked increase in power output, some other
benefits include crisp throttle response; improved
fuel consumption; the elimination of the
choke circuitry for easy cold starting; automatic altitude
compensation to 12,000 feet; automatic
temperature compensation from -13° to +104°
Fahrenheit; faster engine warm-up; and smoother
idle control, thanks to the Idle Air Control Valve
(IACV), which establishes a basic idle setting of
1400 rpm, plus or minus 50 rpm.
Essentially, this system monitors several variables
to control the injected fuel quantity. PGM-FI is a
mapped injection system, meaning that the basic
variables of engine speed and throttle angle are
used to determine mapping. Based mainly on those
measurements, the system looks to the Electronic
Control Module (ECM) for precise fuel delivery. The
ECM adjusts fuel delivery according to four additional
variables: intake-port pressure, enginecoolant
temperature, intake-air temperature and
atmospheric pressure. This fuel-delivery recalculation
process is repeated many times per second to
ensure the correct mixture for conditions and to
provide optimal performance and remarkably crisp
throttle response over a wide operating range.

TRUE AUTOMOTIVE-STYLE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
For a familiar driving experience, Big Red incorporates
an automotive-style transmission. This system
features a hydraulic torque converter, three
hydraulic clutches and an ECM to automatically
select one of three forward gears or, as you
choose, reverse.
Among all ATV and Multipurpose Utility Vehicle
(MUV) manufacturers, Honda alone boasts the only
true automotive-style automatic transmission.
Though Big Red’s unit features several innovations
that cater specifically to MUV application, the
torque converter used in this system operates in
principle much like the torque converters used in
trucks and automobiles. Basically, it links the engine
to the automatic transmission much like a
manual clutch connects an engine to a manual gearbox.
Both systems drive the vehicle and they also
come into play when the vehicle stops.
With a manual transmission, manual actuation of
the clutch temporarily disengages the engine from
the transmission when coming to a stop. In similar

 

fashion, Big Red’s torque converter performs this
connect/disconnect function automatically as
needed. A torque converter can accomplish this because
it is a fluid coupling, rather than a solid coupling.
At low engine speeds, the torque converter
slips internally, which allows the engine to spin independently
of the transmission. As a result, the
engine of the stopped vehicle is allowed to run at
idle while the transmission is in gear. When it’s
time to roll, the driver simply steps on the pedal to
increase engine speed, and the torque converter
then transfers power to the transmission to make
the vehicle move.
In Big Red, the crankshaft drives the torque converter’s
impeller, which uses fins to pump fluid—in
this case, engine oil. As this fluid drives the vanes
of the torque converter’s turbine, the spinning turbine
then powers the automatic transmission to
propel the vehicle. Big Red’s automatic transmission
employs three hydraulic clutches and the ECM
automatically selects one of three forward gears, or
Reverse if selected manually. To accomplish this
feat, the ECM monitors throttle opening, vehicle
speed, engine rpm, gear selector position, brake
application and engine oil temperature.
Big Red also incorporates a shaft final drive, which
in combination with the three-speed automatic
transmission, provides positive engine braking that
is superior to some electronic braking systems that
can result in inconsistent performance.
To make operation of this drive system familiar and
simple, there’s a convenient, dash-mounted drive
selector. The selectable drive modes include: 2WD
with open rear differential for sensitive terrain and
lawns; 4WD with rear differential lock for rough conditions;
4WD with all-wheel differential lock, when
you need that something extra to get home. As a result,
there are plenty of options so drivers can match
usage to the specific terrain and circumstances.

ADVANCED CHASSIS DESIGN
The suspension system provides an exceptional
10.3 inches of ground clearance. Independent double-
wishbone suspension front and rear incorporates
high-quality variable-damping shocks for 5.9

 

inches of travel in front and 7.1 inches in the rear.
And Big Red’s four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes provide
predictable stopping power with a good, progressive
feeling, and they also feature a balanced
automotive-style design that ensures front and rear
braking even in the event that one brake line fails
for some unexpected reason. Credit again the experience
Honda has gained through the years as an
automobile manufacturer. The handy automotivestyle
right-hand-operated parking brake actuates
the two rear-wheel brake calipers, and since these
brakes employ hydraulic actuation, no parking
brake adjustments need ever be made to compensate
for parking-brake wear. In addition, all four
wheels are the same 25 x 10-12 inch size which
aids ground clearance and eliminates the need for
carrying multiple spares during extreme use.

BIG RED: AS HARD WORKING AS THEY COME
The tilting bed of Big Red is made for working: it
boasts a 500-pound load capacity and features a
steel frame for strength. The bed is sheathed in a
tough, molded polypropylene top plate with no
wheel-well intrusions—a standard cargo pallet fits
flat with room to spare. This no-rust 6.5mm-thick
top plate also features rounded corners for easy
cleanup, and four handy D-rings for securing cargo.
A tilt-release handle is located on both left and
right sides for easy operation, and a progressiveaction
strut assist system make raising and lowering
the bed a simple task. Lifting the bed also
yields quick and easy access to the high-mount air
filter box. A heavy-duty two-inch receiver-style hitch
with 1200-pound towing capacity allows Big Red to
take on any number of jobs, and its multi-reflector
headlight system and LED brake light and taillight
provide optimal illumination should your chores—or
adventures—take you into the evening.
Featuring multiple patents and numerous automotive-
based technologies, Big Red sets new standards
with its work capability as well as its ability
to open the door to outdoor adventure. Innovative
technology, legendary Honda quality and class
leading features—there’s nothing that compares to
Big Red… it’s a Honda.

 

2009 BIG RED CAMO

The science of camouflage is all about blending in
with your environment. You wouldn’t wear a suit
and tie to a tractor pull, right? In the terrain where
you ride off-road, a more traditional form of camouflage
is called for, one that lets you disappear
among the trees, rocks and vegetation. That’s why
Honda is pleased to offer the new
Big Red in a Natural Gear camouflage
scheme, in addition to
Honda Red.
Those in the know recognize the essentials
that effective camouflage
must address: position, shine, shadow,
color, texture, outline, height, tone and
location. Natural Gear has a unique
take on developing camouflage patterns.
The company constructs its camouflage
on seven natural laws.
First, the law of tone. Much camouflage is either
too dark or too light, especially for the blackand-
white range in which many animals see best.
Natural Gear patterns are photographically derived,
so its natural tone blends well.
Second is the law of gravity. Trees and other vegetation
grow vertically, so Natural Gear patterns
have a vertical orientation.
Third is the law of shadows. While other camouflage
patterns add dark, “shadowed” areas that blob
up, Natural Gear figures that since shadows occur
in nature, there’s no need to add them artificially.
Next is the law of the open. Too much camouflage
yields to the temptation of adding and adding to
the pattern. Sure, it looks great from a couple of
feet away, but it turns into a single dark mass at
distance. Natural Gear camouflage uses an open
pattern to blend at a greater variety of ranges.
Some camouflage is highly specific, working well
only in pine forests or the desert. Natural Gear em-braces
the law of versatility: Since it’s not situation
specific, it blends over a wide variety of outdoor
areas.
Finally, there’s the law of definition. Animals identify
objects as threats by their shape or image, so
Natural Gear has soft, blurry edges that defy sharp
focus. This is part of the reason it doesn’t feature
the “sticks and leaves” details of other familiar
camouflage patterns.
Honda’s Big Red uses a thin-film application technique
to print the camouflage pattern directly over
the bodywork. It’s an extremely durable process that
bonds perfectly and leaves no wrinkles or bubbles.
And because the base color of the hood is a
tan/beige, even if you do suffer a deep gouge on the
hood of Big Red Camo, the effect isn’t compromised.
Effective camouflage is a total package. If you want
your Big Red to blend in, you’ve got to pay attention
to all of the details. Don’t skyline it; parking in
the shadows and against an irregular background
will work much better. And don’t think that you’ll
be hiding from much if you’re riding around with a
big, red ice chest strapped to the rear rack.
In fact, if there’s any single drawback to Big Red’s
new Natural Gear camouflage bodywork, it may be
this: You’ll have to pay close attention to where
you park because it blends so well you may have a
tough time finding it when it’s time to leave.

its line of clothing, log on to its Web site at

oil as hydraulic fluid, the design also simplifies
maintenance and ensures an adequate oil supply
in all operating conditions.

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

to an exceptional 10.3 inches of ground
clearance.

provide added ground clearance while eliminating
the need for multiple spares during extreme use.

automotive-style design that ensures front and rear
braking even if one brake line fails for some unex-pected reason.

adjustable backs comfortably fit a wide range of

belts are similar to automotive type.

patented built-in scraper system that helps prevent
the buildup of debris between caliper and rim, ensuring
consistent braking performance.
