Honda Announces 2013 Off-Road ATV/MUV New-Model Release
With summertime in full swing, this is the perfect time to think about off-road ATV and Multipurpose Utility Vehicle (MUV) fun, and Honda is proud to announce another wave of dirt-going models for 2013.
"This new release once again demonstrates the broad capabilities of Honda's ATV and MUV product line," says Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. "These four machines—the TRX450R, TRX400X, TRX250X and Big Red—all hit distinctly different segments of the off-road market, yet each is outstanding in its class and they all remain extremely popular."
- TRX450R: A winner, plain and simple
By winning races in virtually every form of ATV racing as well as racking up a string of exciting victories in the grueling Baja 1000, the Honda TRX450R has rightfully earned a place far above all others in its class. At the same time, this race-proven durability makes it a great match for recreational riders as well. So no matter what you may plan for your weekend of riding, you'll surely find the TRX450R comes out as a winner, plain and simple. Price/Availability: TBD.

- TRX400X: A legend in its own time
Aggressive styling, loads of performance and renowned Honda reliability all combine to give the TRX400X near-legendary status among the ranks of sport ATVs. Its bulletproof 397cc RFVC (Radial Four-Valve Combustion Chamber) engine has earned its place as one of the all-time great engines by offering both power and durability in spades. Yet sophisticated features such as a five-speed transmission plus Reverse and electric starting bolster the fun part of the equation as well. All in all, the TRX400X delivers all the goods for those in search of a performance-packed ATV that also includes Honda's famed excellence of design. Price: TBD. Availability: Fall 2012.

Yet it works harder than ever, thanks to its 675cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine, excellent load-carrying and towing capacities, sophisticated suspension, comfortable bench seat and a Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS) that meets OSHA requirements.
