2012 Honda Big Red MUV700 Review
The hardest work you'll ever hire.
In 2011 Honda brought a load of upgrades to the Big Red Multipurpose Utility Vehicle (MUV), and these changes continue to elevate this hard-working machine way ahead of all other options. Credit its multiple patents and numerous automotive-based technology features for the praise Big Red has garnered for its superior handling, secure feel and comfortable ride. Yet it works harder than ever, thanks to its 675cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine, recently upgraded load carrying and towing capacities, revised suspension, contoured bench seat for easier entry/exit and a Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS) that meets OSHA requirements.
Tough jobs need tough workers. And when it comes to MUVs, nothings
tougher than Hondas Big Red. Big Red works the best because its
built the best. Proof? Just check out these features: Big Red offers a proven
Honda engine, automotive-style Honda Automatic Transmission with hydraulic
torque converter, and independent suspension on all four wheels. In addition,
Honda sets the standards when it comes to rider safety, too. And there are
plenty of other refinements too, like Big Reds even better bench-style
seat, generous cargo bed and towing capacity, and Maxxis Big Horn tires and
much more. When youve got a tough jobor just rugged country to
exploreyou need an MUV thats big on features: Hondas Big
