2009 Honda Big Red MUV
Honda's new side x side - Big Red MUV
Available Summer 2008
Early announcement from Honda:
Honda enters the MUV market with a side-by-side machine that leapfrogs the
competition to set new standards in utility and recreation. With numerous
automotive-based technologies, Big Red features a powerful 675cc OHV
liquid-cooled PGM-fuel-injected single-cylinder engine and an automatic
transmission with three selectable drive modes plus Reverse, front and rear
independent double-wishbone suspension, a roomy cab featuring rubber-mounted
bucket seats with adjustable backs, and a specially designed, highly
durable, tilting cargo bed. A broad selection of Honda Genuine Accessories
will also be offered. Big Red will be available in the Summer of 2008.
675cc OHV liquid-cooled PGM-fuel-injected single-cylinder
engine. At least it is fuel injected, but a single-cylinder, 675cc engine is
just not enough to play hard in the dunes.
The Honda Big Red MUV is definitely geared towards the
utility market. Hopefully Honda has a sport model in the works, because the
Big Red is not setup for aggressive riding in the dunes.
The first multi-purpose utility vehicle built by Honda- the 2009 Big Red™. Powered by a 675cc fuel-injected engine that links up with a
smooth-shifting automatic transmission, it can accommodate all your off-road
utility needs. Front and rear independent double-wishbone suspension for a
sure-footed, comfortable ride. Three selectable drive modes, for traction in
virtually every situation. Plus, a tough dump bed and a receiver style hitch
for all the chores you or your "boss" can dream up.

- Towing capacity is increased to 1,500 lbs.
- New contoured bench seat allows easier entry and exit, and improved
