Video of the new Honda Big Red 700 MUV Side by Side

finally jumps into the by side market with they are calling their MUV (Multi-Purpose Utility Vehicle). 15 years of development and research, has finally come up with they are calling a multi-functioning by side that is great for and recreation.

I was recently invited by to their press introduction of new Big Red MUV. What a blast it The ride took place on Island off the coast of California. island granted special to Honda to bring out their new Big Red MUV and ride some of the back roads.

The ride time was a little shorter than events like this, but did things right in presenting a new vehicle to the market with a different approach.


My first impression was this new by Side was bigger than I had This new Big Red 700 boasts nothing but Honda quality and putting and safety to the forefront.

Here are a of quick thoughts as I wanted to get video posted to give you a glance at the new Big Red from Honda. are now available at select dealers A more in-depth article be coming up in a future issue of Illustrated Magazine .

The fit and finish and overall quality is Honda is always at the top of their on quality, but the Big Red seems top notch

thing is big. This NOT fit in the back of your truck wide and 114.7″ long). The cab is roomy and Honda chose to do the seats with seat with the parking brake in the middle.

Full cargo and doors are not a surprise being how is a big concern. However, the full net on the sides was a little surprise and bad getting in and out, but was a little when looking out while etc.

The foot pedals and gas) are very good and wiggle at all. Nice and A lot of room on the floor and good areas for putting your on.

Maintenance is very convenient and the thought out of any Side x Side. access to the battery, air filter, oil and

All four tires are the same At first I think this is kind of gives the Big Red its “weird” for lack of a better term. of looks a little disproportionate, but the are a 25 x 10-12.

How is the power? Not bad, and for the of the machine and the motor being a I think it does fine lb. curb weight). Nothing will blow your off, but Honda doesn’t to blow your socks off these kind of vehicles.

low end power for the rough stuff and mid and high range. Also with fuel injection to on cold starts, high and performance.

But what about This was a big question for me as I was curious if were going to put in their or not. I like the transmission have in their Rubicon etc. However, I was not impressed the newer transmission they put in 700 Rincon ATV. It looks they did a little combination of however it leans more to the transmission.

They call it an Automotive-style three gears. The transmission is not a pull of power. This has distinct forward gears does shift automatically as it through the power train. this worked fine.

this is still not my most choice of transmission for an automatic.

drive mode is the best has ever put out. Why? is Honda’s first attempt at drive differential lock in any ATV or They have a simple on the dash that you can slide two-wheel drive, four-wheel with limited slip in then you can go into four-wheel with all-wheel differential This works very and for a machine of this size is a

I am impressed with Honda’s new drive system and hope start implementing their lock on their ATVs.

and engine braking is good. For a of this size you need to get it The disc brakes does the job and has a good “hold back” braking system that on steep descents.

Put it in four-wheel mode and you have all four holding you back.

How is reverse? There is no override on the Big Red so reverse power is just you get. I stopped coming a steep hill and purposely put it in and went back up it.

There was no and the power was good and strong.

The suspension is also similar, as it for moderate speeds and roads. The suspension does have limitations at higher speeds on bumpy roads.

So what price? I was actually a little Honda was able to keep vehicle in the 11,000 range. Not to say is not a huge amount of money, but it competitive with the Ranger and

List price for the red Big Red is $11,399 and the Gear Camo version of Big Red is

Is it a good Hunting Rig?

I had at one one of Honda’s lead Japanese with me riding in the passenger During this ride I was looking for anything I could go that was rough or nasty. was a rut that ran up the full length of hill.

I could have clearly this and stayed on the “good” of the road. As I busted up the ruts and put it four-wheel drive, scraping the jerking us around quite a spinning the tires, I could he was quite curious and amused.

we had stopped at the top, he questioned why I to take the line that I He asked if that was similar to I would find while out I told him that was nothing to you will find out in the West a hunt, but it was close to the circumstances you will run into.

Ruts, mud, steep and deep and more are common. I think the new Big Red 700 MUV will make a great rig and they have plenty of accessories to add.


My ride time was limited to was available at this event and we able to really let it all hang out due to the and some of the restrictions that we had on the Honda is targeting the new Big Red 700 MUV Side by to the hard worker who likes to do recreation on the weekends or hunts in the More utility minded sport, but overall recreation is good.

Definitely targets more of the Ranger crowd than say the RZR or Yamaha Rhino 700.
