The newer Honda models are quite an improvement over the old, as far as traction goes. My 85 250 Big Red, 90 trx300 and 99 trx350 were all still going strong when I sold them. The 2008 trx420, 2015 Rubicon and the 2018 Foreman are an improvement over the old. You notice the better traction in the 4X4 function when riding in the snow or climbing steep trails, the better cold wx starting on the injected engines. You basically just change the fluids and filters and keep on riding these machines. Personally I believe the newer machines are better than the old. I use the basic foot shift models, with no power steering. Keep them simple and they will last a long time.
