Winnsboro, SC – Tuesday, we at ATVRiders.com were witness to the first fully American redesigned and produced Honda Foreman 500’s rolling off the assembly line at Honda’s manufacturing plant in Timmonsville, South Carolina and now today, we had the opportunity to take out the Foreman 500 for a test ride and see for ourselves the quality and innovation behind the Honda Foreman 500..

This is the fifth generation of the Honda Foreman to be released, and it was the first of its kind to be developed in Ohio and put into production in South Carolina, where previously, any new models were developed in Japan. Another key point for Honda with this release was that they wanted to refine the Foreman, but they also wanted to maintain the features and quality their existing customers have come to expect from the Foreman model line.

Carolina Adventure World proved to be a great spot to test out the new 2012 Foreman 500
The Honda Foreman received several upgrades for 2012 with an all new liquid cooled engine, new fuel injection, redesigned front and rear suspension system along with styling to name a few, but despites all these changes, The Foreman pricing only increased $100 for all four different model configurations for 2012, which in this economy, has a lot of appeal.

For our test ride, we headed out to Carolina Adventure World which was an ideal location to test out the Honda Foreman 500 with its wide variety of terrain from rocky water crossings to see how it handled going over obstacles and through water, hill climbs to test the power, tight trails for testing agility, and high speed areas to see how fast we could get going. The weather was perfect for our adventure with temps in the 70’s and only a few scattered clouds, making for a very enjoyable ride.

When we first saw the 2012 Honda Foreman 500 at the unveiling, we couldn’t help but notice the aggressive new body styling, which we really liked as it is far more attractive than previous models, which gives the quad an updated look. We would appreciate the larger fenders even more out on our test ride as the redesign not only looks good but also offered improved mud and splash protection as splashed through the creek crossings and mud holes.

The 2012 Honda Foreman new fenders provide great splash protection from mud & water because we rode through various mud holes & creek crossings without getting wet or covered in mud. Plus the Foreman has exta large drainage holes in the floorboards to drain out any mud or water that would get into the area
