2012 Honda Foreman?
 
I was looking at getting the 2012 Honda Foreman 500 4x4 camo edition and was wondering if anyone else has one to give me some pro and cons before I buy a new one

it's got an all new FI motor, they're suppose to be pretty awesome, i just cant get over the solid rear axle, i'm a IRS kinda person

What's wrong with a SRA? Less shit to get caught up in the back. Sure it's not as plush a ride, but it beats getting sticks jammed in your rear suspension.

Honda Foreman has always been great. I don't know about the new engine, but can just assume that it will be good.
The solid axle is more for a workhorse while the independent axle is better for play.
I think for what the Foreman is, the solid axle suits itself. Depending on your needs and intended use, there might be more "fun" models out there (with independent rears) but I would go with the Foreman if I was in the market now.

Exactly. Nobody buys a foreman looking to toss it off dunes...

And dune tossing is what you got it for? I also take my truck to the mall. Did I build it for that? Nnnnoooooo. :p

IRS=a ton more ground clearance

edit, and a disc brake on the rear and not that crappy drum brake honda insists on using

If you want something for you and your wife to trail ride on, I would go with a rincon. The IRS is so much more comfortable than the solid axle. I will never go back.
