Default What does FM3 Stand for

I am just about to purchase a 2003 Honda Foreman S TRX 450 FM 3 and I'm wondering if anyone knows what the FM 3 stand for?

I could be wrong but FM is "Fully Manual" and 3 means its an 03 bike maybe??

My bike is FM4 and is Manual and 2004 model.

Thanks Sudesh. I have always been a Honda guy when it comes to motorcycles, but from what I have been reading, their ATV's rank highly and are indestructible. All of my buddies have Can Am machines which are 600 and 800's so I'm not sure I'll keep up to them on the open roads, but I get the sense I will out tow them and kick some butt on the trails.
