Honda Fourtrax 420 and Foreman 520 ATVs: More than just a bigger bore

Honda remains the player to beat in the utility ATV market in the UK, typically taking over 50% of the overall market and an even more dominant 71% plus of the 300-499cc sector. The firm's Fourtrax 420 is the key seller in the UK and Ireland. This model is offered in five variants, too, from an entry-level foot shift manual through to a range-topping dual clutch auto with independent rear suspension.
