That would be pretty neat. I don't really have an issue with steerin' mine too
often. I wonder how reliable it will be?

Honda is always bashed for not following suit with the IRS and locking diffs but they lead the way with autos and now, possibly, power steering.

Knowing Honda, I would expect it will be well tested before it is applied to an ATV.

That's what i would think. Honda usually isn't the one to just throw somethin'
out there to the public without testin' it out over a period of time.

I would not expect to see it until the 2008 models come out. Honda has already released the 07's except for the Ranchers and I would not expect to see it on them.

Yep...you can always tell a Honda owner......BIG shoulders.
I,ve tried upping the air pressure in the front to help with the sterring but it"s harder on the bump factor, good thing I put adjustable shocks up front.

Some front wheel drive GM cars have electric power steering and it's not a perfect system.We've had two G6's with no power steering,one had a failed steering position sensor and the other had a failed steering motor.Both parts are inside the vehicle,can't imagine these systems in the enviroment that they would see when installed on ATV's.

My thoughts exactly, but you never know what will come of it. Maybe they
will make one that can stand up to the elements of atv ridin'.

So much for Honda being the first with power steering. Yamaha has it on the 700 FI Grizzly for 07. Oh well, at least they are working on it.

Well in Canada they dropped the TRX350 lineup .. I was talking to my Honda service school instructor about upcoming service schools and he told me ...

He also told me there would be a school on the power steering coming up,but he didn't say if there would be a bike with the power steering mid 07 or in the 08 lineup ..
