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, nothing’s tougher than Honda’s Big Red. Big Red works the best because it’s 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 Red’s even better bench-style seat, generous cargo bed and towing capacity, and Maxxis Big Horn tires and much more. When you’ve got a tough job—or just rugged country to explore—you need an MUV that’s big on features: Honda’s Big Red.



2012 Honda Big Red MUV700 Features and Benefits:

Big On Performance

Big Red’s transmission isn’t just another automatic—Big Red features the Honda automatic, the industry’s only true automotive-style automatic with a heavy-duty torque converter.

Big On Safety

With Big Red, we’ve made a commitment to safety, just what you’d expect from Honda. An innovative balanced braking system that ensures front and rear braking even in the event that one brake line fails, automotive-type three-point Emergency Locking Retractor seatbelts, occupant protection structure, a wide-track chassis design, and much more—it’s all part of Big Red’s overall design.

Big On Capability

Big Red even offers a generous cargo bed with a full 1000-pound capacity. And if that’s not enough, the towing capacity is an even bigger 1500 pounds. Big Red’s ready to work harder than ever!

Big Red: Built Honda Tough.

Everywhere you look, there’s another feature that sets Honda’s Big Red apart. Of course the 675cc liquid-cooled engine, Honda Automatic Transmission, 2WD/4WD drivetrain and independent suspension all around are great places to start. But how about all the safety features, or the increased capacity this year, or the upgraded driver and passenger accommodations, or . . . well, you’re beginning to get the picture.
