Excitement continues to build as American Honda introduces more new 2014 models for off-road enthusiasts. This ongoing infusion of innovative engineering highlights the commitment Honda is making to consumers, as more new models bring ever-higher capabilities across the board.
“For this 2014 model announcement, Honda is continuing its push to bring new and diverse machines to market while also delivering great value,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “Here we’re unveiling a new generation of our hugely popular FourTrax Rancher and FourTrax Foreman lines of ATVs with completely new frames, suspension, styling and more for elevated levels of performance.”
The 2014 Honda TRX models were releases as well, including the TRX90X, TRX250X, TRX400X and TRX450R. There are no significant changes to these models.
FourTrax Rancher Series
Over the years, Honda’s liquid-cooled fuel-injected 420cc FourTrax® Rancher® series has built a wide-ranging, loyal and enthusiastic following, thanks in large part to the multiple configurations that are available to meet many varied rider needs. For 2014, these FourTrax Rancher models feature an all-new chassis with a redesigned frame featuring new, longer-travel suspension for enhanced rider comfort plus outstanding performance over rugged terrain. That new chassis is wrapped in all-new bodywork with distinctively aggressive styling. The multiple choices in drivetrain styles remain; the 4WD FourTrax Rancher 4x4 ES features Honda’s highly regarded Electric Shift Program (ESP®) that makes gear shifts as easy as pushing a button, while the 4WD FourTrax Rancher Automatic DCT features Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), a five-speed fully automatic transmission that also gives the rider the option of ESP mode. The FourTrax Rancher 4x4 offers riders 4WD with a traditional manual-shift gearbox. The two-wheel-drive FourTrax Rancher available with manual or electric shift offers terrific performance, at an extremely affordable price point. Most of these models also offer the option of Electric Power Steering—all considered, it adds up to a wealth of wonderful choices for off-road work and play.

FourTrax Foreman Series
For years, the FourTrax Foreman® series of ATVs has carved out an impeccable reputation as hard-working partners that also know how to have fun when it’s time for a little recreation. Now that reputation grows stronger than ever as the next generation of FourTrax Foremans arrives for 2014 with an all-new chassis, suspension, locking front differential, styling and more. As before, the FourTrax Foreman 4x4 ES boasts Honda’s renowned Electric Shift Program (ESP) that delivers push-button convenience for shifting, while the manual-shift FourTrax Foreman 4x4 is the machine of choice for riders who prefer the more conventional gearbox. Both models can be had with the option of Electric Power Steering as well. No matter which configuration you may favor, the FourTrax Foreman shines brighter than ever as the ideal machine to tackle a hard day’s work while also pulling double duty when you head out for that weekend adventure.

The TRX90X serves as the ideal starting point for introducing new riders to the world of ATVs. At the same time, the TRX90X carries the same styling cues that place it right alongside its larger sport siblings, and it also offers smooth power delivery and Honda’s renowned reliability. Factor in the ease of electric starting, Honda’s durable automatic clutch and a refined suspension system, and you have the perfect combination for launching a beginner off to a great start.

The midsized TRX250X boasts a distinctly sporty look with aggressive, race-inspired styling.

The TRX400X has earned near-legendary status among ATV riders and racers thanks to its performance, aggressive styling, and renowned Honda reliability. Its 397cc Radial Four-Valve Combustion Chamber (RFVC) powerplant has earned its place as one of the all-time great engines by offering a combination of high-performance and rugged durability. Adjustable long-travel suspension tuned for off-road versatility help make the TRX400X a well-rounded package. Features such as a five-speed transmission plus Reverse and electric starting bolster the fun part of the equation as well. Color: Red; Price: TBD; Availability: December
The TRX450R has a long record of victories in the grueling deserts of Baja and a wide range of other ATV competitions, and has rightfully earned a place above all others in its class. With its compact, lightweight high-performance liquid-cooled 450cc four-stroke Unicam engine, the TRX450R offers truly impressive power. Fully adjustable long-travel suspension front and rear get all that power to the ground, and allow the TRX450R to get the best of truly gnarly terrain. At the same time, the TRX450R’s race-proven durability makes it a great match for recreational riders as well as racers. Colors: Special Edition Tri-Color, Red; Price: TBD; Availability: September
