General Information

I'm currently in the market to buy my first ATV and I had my sights set on getting a new 2021 foreman foot-shift no power steering. I love everything about the foreman and hear nothing but how reliable they are. I've watched buddies sink their Honda then pull the plugs out drain it and ride all day. Other friends with a canam or brute force can't say the same and it turns out to be way more costly. The cons of the foreman are that I've heard a lot of bad things about their automatic trannys so I've decided to get a foot-shift. However, the foreman doesn't have an IRS with the foot-shift and I kind of wanted an automatic to start with. So immediately looking at the king quads I love the auto tranny and the IRS, not to mention the more power they have. I'm in Florida and will be riding with my girl most of the time and basically plan to do a lot of mud/water and trail riding with the bike. I've road a king quad a couple of times and love them but I'm just worried about the reliability and if they have electrical issues. I'm on the fence about deciding which one to get so I figured I'd see if anyone has any input on my situation. I'm kinda leaning towards the king quad but everyone says Hondas the way to go. Thank you in advance!

Depends of what you do . The foreman is for work . The Rubicon is like trail/work but rev at 3789748 rpm at 80km/h . They got some problem with the transmission even with the revision they did made. We got 2 one 2018 and one 2020 (familly big honda fan from the honda fourtrax and hondamatic trans) . One is a 2020 i think he has to go to the dealer the trans having problem on LOW. And he is not beating it . Just to go travel/fishing. the one with the 2020 got an old Rubidon 2001 with 32k km . Still going strong. (but it was hondamatic trans).

I did choose Suzuki cause all listed there. I did reach 109kmh with the kingquad 750 2021. Not need to go this fast. But its fun to travel around at 70-80 on big gravel road and not ear the engine want to pass out at 9377673 rpm like honda ;)
