– Honda Rubicon TRX500 with 15″ wheels & Nitrous + Custom Honda Ridgeline Truck! –
Could this be the Fastest Honda Rubicon 500 ATV Ever Built?
On display at the Toyo Tires booth for SEMA 2016, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline RTL-E customized by Fox Marketing focuses on the outdoor sportsman and features Honda Factory Accessories, including side step, wind visors and fender flares that allows the Ridgeline to spread its wings. An Avery Diamond White Pearl wrap is featured over a BASF R-M Black paint job, with red accents. The 18″ KMC Wheels are wrapped in 265/65/18 Toyo ATII tires, with a 1.5″ leveling kit providing added stability for off-road adventures. The bed of the truck features a 2017 Honda Rubicon 500 with added Nitrous Express 50-shot system, yes, you read that correctly… This Foreman Rubicon ATV has a NITROUS KIT! Honda’s never built the biggest or the fastest out there when it comes to ATVs but they have always built the most reliable on the market by a mile. Fox Marketing found a ‘fix’ for that problem though with a 50-shot of nitrous that definitely helps wake up the anemic power-levels that the Foreman Rubicon comes with from the factory. Who else wants to see this bottle-fed Rubicon in action on the hose? I know I do! I’d say it would have to be the fastest Rubicon 500 to date but with this being a ‘show bike’ it’s highly unlikely we’ll see anyone out raising hell on it. The Rubicon was also outfitted with 15″ KMC Wheels that were wrapped with 235/50/15 Toyo T1R Tires for the performance enthusiast.
The Honda FourTrax Foreman Rubicon Deluxe 4×4 is an aggressively styled ‘Cadillac’ of an ATV with a legendary 475cc fuel-injected engine and Independent Rear Suspension (IRS). Excellent ride comfort, high payload and towing capacity, high ground clearance and suspension travel, plus the option of Electric Power Steering (EPS) all add up to big fun with impressive capability. Honda’s Automatic DCT with Drive/Low, which delivers smooth, seamless power with an added benefit of the ability to switch between full automatic mode and actively selecting gears via Honda’s Electric Shift Program. Both transmission choices are gear-driven, with no belts to slip when wet, or to burn up or break.
