Honda ATV Models Explained
What are the differences between Honda ATV models? The difference between a Honda Foreman and a Honda Rancher? A Honda Foreman vs. a Foreman Rubicon? Read on to learn about the different types of Honda ATV models. (Note: These descriptions are based on 2022 models.)
Honda ATVs (quads and four-wheelers) fall into two categories: Recreation/Utility ATVs and Sport ATVs.
The types of Honda Rec/Utility ATVs are:
- FourTrax Foreman 4x4
- FourTrax Foreman Rubicon 4x4
- FourTrax Rancher
- FourTrax Rincon
Of Honda Sport ATVs, the TRX90X is available in California.
FourTrax Foreman 4x4
The Honda Foreman is the ATV you can always count on. Each model features a powerful 518cc engine, tough front and rear racks, an easy-to-use reverse system, a handy utility box and more. And every Foreman uses a swingarm rear suspension that's perfect for hard work or towing.

While the Rubicon is as tough as they come, it provides you with a plush, comfortable ride. That's because every Rubicon comes with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) for a smooth ride and all-day comfort. That's the big difference between the Foreman vs. the Foreman Rubicon: the Rubicon's Independent Rear Suspension. Every Rubicon boasts a single-cylinder 518cc engine, tough front and rear racks, an easy-to-use reverse system, and a handy utility box.
Every Rancher model has rugged front and rear racks, a spacious front utility compartment, wide front drive-shaft guards, and an easy-to-use reverse system. Plus, automatic DCT models give you an override shifting control, making this great transmission choice even better. Note: A big difference between the Rancher vs. the Foreman is that the Rancher comes in 2-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-drive models. All Foreman models are 4x4.
The FourTrax Rincon boasts a liquid-cooled 675cc single-cylinder engine – the largest engine in any Honda ATV. But besides power, the Rincon offers class-leading comfort with long-travel independent front and rear suspension. Need more reasons to buy a Rincon? How about a smooth-shifting fully automatic transmission, and selectable two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive?
Honda's TRX90X is just the right size for younger riders, built to bring joy and build passion. And it's loaded with features especially tailored to first timers, like Honda's exclusive no-clutch transmission that lets children focus on the fundamentals and having fun but still teaches them to shift gears. Note: The TRX250X is not available in California.
