1999 Honda FourTrax Foreman 4x4

Posted on by  

Like all FourTrax models, the Foreman 4x4 features a tough character and puts performance and reliability on the first place.

Needless to say that thanks to its unstoppable personality, the Honda FourTrax Foreman 4x4 can deal effortless with anything you throw at him.

At the heart of the Honda FourTrax Foreman 4x4 lies a 475cc, liquid-cooled, OHV, longitudinally mounted, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine that sends power to the wheels through a modern five speed transmission with reverse.

Thanks to the strong engine, the Honda FourTrax Foreman 4x4 can tow a maximum load of 850-pound with a rack capacity of 66 pounds up front and 133 pounds in the rear.

To be easier to maneuver in tight spaces, the ATV is also equipped with Honda’s modern Electric Power Steering (EPS).

The 2013 Honda FourTrax Foreman 4x4 is currently available at a starting price of $6999.

Honda’s Foreman all-terrain vehicles have always been the machines to count on when you need an ATV that’s not afraid to take on the tough jobs. And this year is no different: they’re just as strong. Just as rugged. And just as hard working, whether it’s around the ranch, the factory, or on your favorite trail.

In addition to four-wheel drive and Honda’s innovative Electric Power Steering, the Foreman line features Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI). That means you get more efficient fuel delivery, easier starting in cold conditions and less maintenance. The Foreman looks the part, too, with aggressively styled bodywork, plush suspension, and a comfortable seat for all-day riding.

So if you’ve got some tough jobs lined up on the jobsite, make sure you put the Foreman in charge.

The FourTrax Foreman 4x4 is built around our strong, single-cylinder, 475cc longitudinal engine. By orienting the crankshaft front-to-back in the chassis, we route the flow of power straight to the wheels without any right-angle detours, reducing power-train friction and putting more grunt to the ground. Hey, it’s a Honda. You wouldn’t expect anything less.

Electric Shift Program (ESP)

Upshifting and downshift has never been this easy: With Honda’s available exclusive ESP system, you get the ease of an automatic with the strength of a conventional transmission. To shift up or down all you have to do is push one of two handlebar-mounted buttons. Since there’s no foot-shift lever, ESP is also a bonus when riding in heavy or mud/snow-covered boots.

Triple Headlights

The Foreman features three headlights, two mounted on the front fenders and one on the handlebar. The 45-watt handlebar light moves with the bar to illuminate the area you choose. All three use multi-reflector lenses for superior light distribution.

Accessory Power Outlet

The Foreman comes with a 12-volt accessory outlet as standard equipment. That makes it easy to run or recharge your electronics (cell-phone charger, GPS, etc.) out in the woods or on the jobsite. An optional rear-mounted outlet is also available as a Honda Genuine Accessory.

Our rock-solid reliable mechanical system lets you choose either 2WD or 4WD, giving you the freedom to choose between lighter steering (in 2WD) and maximizing available traction (4WD) when you need it most.

Comfortable Seat

A soft seat and open rider triangle (Bars/Seat/Pegs) teams up with the suspension to really treat you right. Superior ergonomics have always been a Honda priority, and the Foreman is no exception.

Semi-Dry-Sump Engine Design

Compact and lighter-weight, the Foreman’s overhead-valve, semi-dry sump design creates an engine that’s not only shorter from top to bottom, but one that enhances handling by lowering the center of gravity and increasing ground clearance.

The Foreman line’s bodywork gives it a tough look. But it does more than just look good: It’s designed to last, despite the scrapes and dings of the job or the woods, and to help protect you from mud and other debris.

Liquid Cooling

Our time-tested Honda engine is liquid-cooled, which provides more consistent operating temperatures and more power than a comparable air-cooled motor. This adds up to better performance and longer engine life.

Fuel Injection

The Foreman’s fuel-injection system does more than just deliver crisp, seamless performance and ensure hassle-free operation in cold conditions and varying altitudes. It also improves throttle response and returns better fuel efficiency.

Adjustable Suspension

With a plush suspension front and rear, the Foreman absorbs bumps so you don’t have to. That means you can work longer—without feeling like you have.

Towing Capacity

Got a tough job to tackle? No problem—the Foreman is up to the task. With a generous 850-pound towing capacity and rack capacity of 66 pounds up front and 133 pounds in the rear, the Foreman is ready to double as a pack mule when you need to carry a load. (Hitch ball shown sold separately.)
