2012 Honda Foreman ES with Power Steering
- Stock Number:
Built to work — even harder.
Honda's Foreman family of 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 they're better than ever: Stronger, smarter, even harder working, whether it's around the ranch, factory, or your favorite trail.
How can that be? Because in addition to four-wheel drive and Honda's innovative Electric Power Steering, the Foreman line now features Honda's Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI). That means you get more efficient fuel delivery, easier starting in cold conditions, and less maintenance. While we were at it, we gave the Foreman a new look too, with new, aggressively styled bodywork, plusher suspension, and a more comfortable seat.
So tackling those tough jobs just got a whole lot easier if you hire the right Foreman to take charge of your jobsite.

- A whole new look: The Foreman line's new bodywork gives it a tough new look. But it does more than just look good: It's still designed to last, despite the scrapes and dings of the job or the woods, to help protect you from mud and other debris, and to keep looking good as long as you own your Honda.
- Accessories as tough as the ATVs they’re on. Coming soon: When you're riding the best ATV on the planet, only the best accessories will do—Honda Genuine Accessories. These accessories are designed specifically for your Honda vehicle and feature the same quality and durability you’ve come to expect from Honda.
- Fuel-Injected Performance: The Foreman's new fuel-injection system means you'll get an ATV that works harder, with better fuel management and plenty of power and torque for those tough jobs.
- Works hard. Rides easy: The better your new Foreman rides, the shorter your workday will seem. That's why we gave our 2012 Foreman line a plusher suspension, better ergonomics, and a new, softer seat. It all adds up to a Foreman with a more comfortable ride that is looking out for number one—and that's you.
