There's a lot more to Honda than just motorcycles and the Civic. The Japanese company is also known for its power-sports equipment, particularly all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). In fact, ATVs make up a huge part of its sales in the US. And now the firm has refreshed its product offerings to keep the momentum going.
In an attempt to reach a wider audience, the best-selling Honda Rancher is now available with a variety of options and choices. Buyers can opt for swing-arm or independent rear suspension, while electric power steering or standard steering rack is also on offer. The Rancher can even come with either a dual-clutch or a standard auto gearbox, as well as 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrains.
If you're looking for something a bit more manageable in size, then the smaller Recon should do just fine. Little doesn’t mean lightweight, though, as this baby packs a 250-class motor, giving it enough grunt to tackle any terrain. Buyers can also choose between electric shift program and manual transmission. Of course, rugged styling and electric start are already part of the package.
Riders looking for a sportier experience, on the other hand, will be happy to know that the TRX250X gets a long-travel suspension, along with the patented SportClutch system and new silver wheel design that goes nicely with the white color scheme. First seen in 1987, it continues to blend the good old values of the brand with modern technology and styling.
Finally, those who like their ATVs big can go for the Rincon and its powerful 675cc water-cooled, four-stroke fuel-injected mill mated to a three-speed beltless automatic transmission. It also gets independent rear suspension with long-travel capability, not to mention class-leading radial tires. The top-spec variant can now be had in black, in addition to red with Honda camo design cues.
Whether for work or for play, Honda ATVs can now traverse any terrain in style and confidence. Kicking up some dirt should be loads of fun on any of these babies.
