Important Safety Information – Recommended for riders 16 years of age and older. Honda recommends that all ATV riders take a training course and read their owner’s manual thoroughly.
Shifting’s Never Been So Easy – With Honda’s optional handlebar-mounted, push-button Electric Shift Program (ESP), quick, crisp gearshifts are just a thumb-tip away.
Two-Wheel Drive? Four-Wheel Drive? You Decide. – This invaluable feature allows a rider to shift, via a front-panel-mounted lever, between 2WD and 4WD for maximum versatility during tough chores or on uneven terrain.

Accessories as tough as the ATVs they’re on. – When you’re riding the best ATV on the planet, only the best accessories will do—Honda Genuine Accessories. These accessories are designed specifically for your Honda vehicle and feature the same quality and durability you’ve come to expect from Honda.
