Honda’s first two-wheel announcement of the 2017 powersports model year is headlined by the popular Grom, which gets a comprehensive redesign for a sharper, more aggressive look. In addition, Honda announces a number of returning models for 2017, including the practical PCX150 scooter and the CRF family of trail bikes.

Honda’s second four-wheel announcement of the 2017 powersports model year includes three ATV models: the Independent Rear Suspension-equipped FourTrax Foreman Rubicon 4×4, the faithful FourTrax Foreman 4×4 and the youth-focused TRX90X.

“We’re excited to refresh the Grom with an assertive new look for 2017,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda. “Since its 2014 introduction, this fun-loving motorcycle has been a big hit in a little package, singlehandedly establishing a thriving market for small-wheeled, small-displacement, big-personality road bikes that lend themselves to personalization. Now, the Grom’s styling is even more exciting without losing any of the original’s fun appeal.”

Part minibike, all motorcycle, the Grom has been a resounding success from the start, with a package that’s manageable yet comfortable for full-sized adults. Though its wheels are only 12 inches, the bike has full-size features like a sturdy steel frame, a 31mm inverted fork, mono-shock rear suspension, hydraulic disc brakes and a 125cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine. Now the Grom gets an edgier look, thanks to an integrated fuel tank and side panels, along with a modern, stacked LED headlight layout. Add a new flip-key, sportier handlebar, under-slung exhaust, upswept tail unit and a higher passenger seat, and you’ve got a Grom that’s as fun as ever but with a daring new look.

Those seeking a practical, versatile scooter with a simple-to-use automatic transmission and room for a passenger need look no further than the PCX150, which is available in two new colors for 2017: Pearl White and Dark Pearl Blue. The 150cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine works great for urban commuting but is also freeway-legal for longer jaunts, while the fuel efficiency and 2.1 gallon fuel tank help make gas-station stops a rare occurrence. The package is rounded out with a bold design topped off by dual LED headlights.

Lightweight and reliable, the CRF230F is the ideal off-road motorcycle for young adults or larger teens looking to spend more time twisting the throttle and less time spinning the wrenches. Thanks to its user-friendly, air-cooled 223cc four-stroke engine, durable six-speed transmission and plush, long-travel suspension, this motorcycle can be enjoyed by a wide range of riders in a variety of off-road environments. Easy-to-use push-button start, heavy-duty clutch, front disc brake and a tough skid plate provide performance and durability on the trail. Maintenance-free CD ignition, sealed battery and cam-type chain adjusters are a few of the many features that help to keep maintenance simple and rare.

No kick-starting necessary with Honda’s durable CRF150F; just push the starter button and go! The 149cc air-cooled four-stroke engine with five-speed transmission is tame enough for beginning riders yet has plenty of power to entertain even the most seasoned vets. When the trail gets rough, the 35mm Showa fork and Pro-Link® Showa single shock provide a plush ride to help maximize control and fun. With a seat height of 32.8 inches, this midsized off-road offering is the ideal platform for stepping up from its smaller siblings.

Best of all, the bike is available in the standard version with 17- and 14-inch front and rear wheels and a 28.9-inch seat height, and the CRF125FB “Big Wheel” with 19- and 16-inch wheels and a 30.9-inch seat height.

A fun off-road motorcycle packed with features for the younger rider, the CRF110F features an air-cooled 110cc engine with a durable four-speed transmission and automatic clutch, and it comes with both push-button electric start and manual kick start.

The smallest Honda in the CRF line, the CRF50F is great for introducing the youngest riders to the world of motorcycling. The easy-to-use power delivery from the durable and low-maintenance 49cc air-cooled four-stroke engine has been putting smiles on children’s faces for generations. A smooth, three-speed transmission and automatic clutch prevent stalls and allow riders to focus on fun. There’s also an adjustable throttle limiter so parents can control the maximum power output without limiting the amount of enjoyment.

FourTrax Foreman Rubicon

Honda’s three new ATV models: the Independent Rear Suspension-equipped FourTrax Foreman Rubicon 4×4, the faithful FourTrax Foreman 4×4 and the youth-focused TRX90X.

“It’s great to welcome these popular ATVs back to the 2017 lineup,” Edmunds said. “Together, the Rubicon, Foreman and TRX90X appeal to a broad spectrum of users, perfectly demonstrating why Honda continues to lead the market in ATV sales.”

FourTrax Foreman Rubicon

As Honda’s top 500-class ATV, the FourTrax Foreman Rubicon represents an ideal balance of work and play, and for 2017 it features bright, durable painted plastic for a striking look—a first for a Honda ATV. Since its 2015 redesign, the Rubicon has received a number of accolades including awards from media outlets. The 475cc engine has a five-speed transmission that provides confidence and reliability on tough trails, while the model’s Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) and modern chassis place a premium on all-day comfort. The four-model family of Foreman Rubicons allows customers to choose from a number of options, including standard or automatic DCT transmission and electric power steering.

    • Foreman Rubicon 4×4 EPS: Red, Olive, Active Yellow

FourTrax Foreman 4×4

The dependable workhorse of the ATV world, Honda’s rugged Foreman is up for any job, with a fuel-injected 500-class engine and a strong chassis with long-travel, swingarm suspension. Riders can switch between two- and four-wheel drive with a push of the TraxLok button, and the front differential can be locked when maximizing available traction is needed. Two Foreman models are offered—a base version and one with electric shifting and electric power steering—and they’re available in a number of colors, including a new Vapor White option.

  • Colors
    • Foreman 4×4: Red, Olive, Vapor White
    • Foreman 4×4 ES EPS: Red, Vapor White, Honda Phantom Camo
  • Price: $7,199
  • Availability: August 2016

The smallest model in Honda’s sport ATV family provides rugged reliability for years’ worth of fun, and with revised rating from Y-12 to Y-10, parents and kids can share in the fun even earlier. An effortless push-button electric start powers the 86cc engine, which provides smooth power delivery and simple operation for the newest riders. That and the semi-automatic four-speed transmission make riding enjoyable for young Red Riders. For 2017, the TRX90X is available in two color options, including the traditional Red and now Olive with camouflage accents.

  • Colors: Red, Olive
  • Price: TBD
