2013 Honda FOURTRAX FOREMAN 4X4
Built to work — even harder.
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.
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.
Fuel-Injected Performance: Equipped with our Programmed Fuel Injection system, the Foreman works harder, provides better fuel management, and delivers plenty of power and torque for those tough jobs.
It looks tough. Because it is tough: The Foreman’s bodywork gives it a rugged appearance. But it does more than just look good. It’s designed to last, despite the scrapes and dings of the job or woods; to help protect you from mud and other debris; and to keep looking good as long as you own it.
Tough on the job. Not on you: The better your Foreman rides, the shorter your workday seems. That’s why we gave our Foreman line plush suspension with comfortable ergonomics and a soft saddle. So you can tackle your chores or the trails in comfort, all day long.

- TraxLok®: 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.
- 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.
- Longitudinal Engine Layout
- 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.
- 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.
- Styling: 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.
