it started out as TRAX...(tracks)

Four-Trax..... implying FOUR tires....

the older Honda's were called Fourtrax....

they shortened it up to TRX.....


at least that is my philosophy on the subject....

Every four wheeler Honda has made had the TRX in the model number. I have no idea what it stands for though.

Hmm, someone here must know what it means if anything?

I know that the honda 3 wheelers were called ATC for All Terrain Cycle.

and all fourtrax's were TRX as 450rrr said. So I guess TRX does stand for Trax.

I think that is right.

The 1999 TRX400EX was also named the Fourtrax 400EX. Notice the seat graphic. In 00' they changed it to Sportrax and from 02'+ the seat just said Honda.

fourtrax has always been Honda's quad names, as Greg mentioned. Because of this, they shortened it to "trx" to use in the model name. simple as that.
