Independent Thinker.

When it comes to technical innovations, the Rincon doesn't make you choose—you get it all. First, its Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) delivers a precise, smooth ride over rough terrain, with each rear wheel tracking its own path for enhanced grip and sure, positive control. Next, the automotive-style transmission uses a heavy-duty hydraulic torque converter, while Honda's TraxLok system lets you choose between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive on the fly. Best of all, the 675cc engine offers plenty of low- and midrange power.

  • TraxLok®

    TraxLok is a shift-on-the-fly system that lets you choose between two- and four-wheel drive.

    Two-wheel drive gives you lighter steering, while four-wheel drive maximizes traction.

  • GPScape

    Oversized buttons make GPScape easy to use while wearing gloves. Since it's hard wired into your ATVs electrical system, you never have to worry about dead batteries.

  • Electric Shift Program (ESP)

    Upshifting or downshifting is easy and fast—just push one of two handlebar-mounted buttons.

    ESP is a huge advantage when riding in heavy boots, or if your boots are covered in mud or snow.

  • Semi-Dry-Sump Engine Design

    Our semi-dry sump design and overhead valve design give you an engine that's shorter from top to bottom.

    The compact engine both lowers the center of gravity and increases ground clearance.

  • Longitudinal Engine Layout

  • Shaft Final Drive

  • Independent Rear Suspension (IRS)

    The Rincon's Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) gives you a super-smooth ride over rough terrain.
