The announcement comes shortly after Honda’s manufacturing plant, Honda of South Carolina Mfg., Inc. (HSC), celebrated its 20th anniversary of producing Honda powersports products. Located in Timmonsville, South Carolina, and driven by the widespread success of Honda’s side-by-side and ATV lines, HSC has twice been named S.C. Large Manufacturer of the Year and, together with Honda, remains committed to the principles upon which the company was founded: to be a leader in the industry and improve people’s lives through mobility and by having a positive impact on the local economy.

“It’s exciting to announce the return of Honda’s rugged and fun side-by-sides and ATVs as we celebrate 20 years of producing Honda Powersports products at Honda of South Carolina,” said Lee Edmunds, American Honda’s Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications. “Together with HSC, Honda is proud to bring so many capable and versatile machines to the market, and we look forward to doing so for years to come.”

The industry’s benchmark multipurpose side-by-side boasts the market’s only six-speed automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) gearbox. Two limited-edition versions come with I-4WD, featuring brake traction control combined with a torque biasing limited-slip front differential, which provides the tractive force of a locking differential but with reduced steering effort and kickback, delivering excellent traction on a wide range of challenging surfaces, along with a more relaxed driving experience. Alongside the I-4WD system, the LE models offer hill-start assist, electronic brake force distribution, and many additional upgrades to improve suspension performance, protection, convenience, and style.
