The legendary MUV700 with Honda’s signature fit and finish is now more attainable thanks to the brand new price of just $16,999 (MLP). Save over $3,000 and tackle the toughest Australian terrain on Honda’s Multipurpose Utility Vehicle which features multiple patents and numerous automotive-based technologies.
Upon its introduction the Big Red™ Multipurpose Utility Vehicle (MUV) already stood head and shoulders above all other contenders, thanks to its superior handling, secure feel and comfortable ride.
What sets the Big Red™ apart from other similar vehicles is Honda’s focus on quality and convenience. At the heart of this MUV is a powerful four-stroke, liquid-cooled, OHV 675cc engine that feeds power to the wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission. Its single-cylinder powerplant and four-valve cylinder head design provides a broad powerband for plenty of grunt.
A key element in this engine’s consistent and convenient performance is Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection system. Beginning with a marked increase in power output, other benefits include crisp throttle response, improved fuel consumption, easy cold starting and smoother idle control, thanks to the Idle Air Control Valve.
Unique to the MUV700 is the incorporation of an automotive-style transmission that features a hydraulic torque converter, three hydraulic clutches and an ECM to automatically select one of three forward gears or reverse.
With a convenient, dash-mounted drive selector, selectable drive modes include 2WD with open rear differential for sensitive terrain and lawns, 4WD with rear differential lock for rough conditions and 4WD with all-wheel differential lock, when you need that something extra to get home.
Big Red boasts fully independent front and rear suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, a wide track for confidence-inspiring handling and a host of available accessories designed to deliver long-lasting durability for commercial and recreational applications.
Honda’s legendary Big Red™ is packed with safety features like automotive style double latching doors, three-point seat belts with an Emergency Locking Retractor mechanism and side nets. A uniquely designed Roll Over Protection Structure built out of sturdy, large diameter tubing will protect both rider and passenger (certified to meet the requirements of OSHA 1928.53) and the impressive width of the MUV700 adds to increased stability.
Adding to the MUV700’s unbeatable practicality, a heavy-duty receiver-style hitch with 680kg towing capacity allows Big Red to take on any number of jobs while the tilting bed boasts a 454kg load capacity and features a steel frame for strength and is large enough to fit a standard cargo pallet with room to spare.
