Throughout the 1960s, Honda was well on their way to becoming a dominant force in the 2-wheel performance motorcycle market with models such as the CB77 Super Hawk, Scrambler CL450, and the Dream CB350 Super Sport and CB750. By 1970, the Japanese manufacturer entered the blossoming compact all-terrain vehicle market that was spearheaded by the Jiger ATV. Honda’s answer to the Jiger was the US90, a 3-wheeled power trike layout that combined the Jiger’s off-road capabilities with Honda’s famous motorcycle engineering and technological know-how. The US90 (later called ATC90) was an instant sales success and supplanted the Jiger as the new ATV sales king until 1982 when rival manufacturer Suzuki introduced the first-ever 4-wheel ATV, the LT125. The Suzuki LT125 went on to reshape the ATV market and its new 4-wheel design laid the groundwork for every other ATV that followed. Honda continued to push the boundaries of high-performance and utility 3-wheel ATVs with the ATC Big Red, but the demand for 4-wheel ATVs was far too loud for Honda to ignore so in 1984, Honda unveiled the TRX 200 FourTrax. The TRX200 paved the way for the FourTrax TRX250 and competition-ready TRX250R which was geared for ATV racing enthusiasts. Two years later, Honda followed up with the industry’s first four-wheel drive ATV, the TRX350 FourTrax 4X4. The 1986 Honda FourTrax 4X4 was a revolutionary landmark in ATV technology and its impact continues to resonate throughout the market today. Even Honda’s current crop of sport ATVs such as the TRX250X and heavy-duty rec/utility ATVs like the FourTrax Rincon, FourTrax Recon, FourTrax Rancher, and FourTrax Foreman Rubicon can trace their lineage back to that original groundbreaking 1986 TRX350 FourTrax 4X4.
