A second Big Red model, the ATC200ES, was introduced in 1984. New additions to this model were a reverse gear and a maintenance-free shaft drive. It was capable of towing up to 700 pounds. Though it did not have the "Big Red" designation, the ATC250R, released in 1985, was a follow-up product that was also red in color. In 1986 Honda phased out the ATC series in favor of their new FourTrax vehicles.

  • Q:

    How does handling a three-wheeler compare to handling a four-wheeler?

    A:

    Three-wheeled vehicles are typically lighter and have less wheel surface area touching the ground than four-wheeled vehicles, which makes three-wheeled vehicles tend to have significantly less grip than vehicles with four wheels. Similarly, because there are only three bases of support on a three-wheeled vehicle, they have a higher chance of tipping than four-wheeled vehicles.
