2013 Honda Foreman 500 4x4 ES EPS 4x4 Utility ATV

Honda Foreman 500 4x4 ES EPS Utility ATV Features & Benefits

For a hard-working riding partner that also knows more than a thing or two about recreation, the FourTrax® Foreman® series of 4x4 ATVs is hard to beat. Featuring Honda’s renowned Electric Shift Program (ESP®) that delivers push-button convenience for shifting, the Foreman ES line of ATVs boasts a strong-running liquid-cooled 475cc single-cylinder OHV four-stroke engine that’s powerful enough for taking on a wide range of extra-tough jobs. Credit the fuel injection system for near-instant throttle response, consistent performance at high altitude, and hassle-free cold-weather starting—key benefits of the Foreman’s performance package. The rolling chassis delivers agile handling and a tight turning radius, and features suspension that provides remarkable comfort and hard-working capabilities. Factor in the option of Electric Power Steering (EPS), and you’ve got one of the strongest, hardest-working rides available today.
