Small Footprint. Supersized Quality.

Some folks think if they’re buying a smaller ATV, they don’t need full-sized quality. Honda politely begs to differ. Because we know that anyone who rides out of sight from the truck or trailer needs an ATV they can count on. Besides, we only know one way to build things—the Honda way. And for anyone who knows anything about Honda, that means quality, reliability, and superior engineering are part of every product.

Like all Honda utility ATVs, the Recon features a strong, longitudinal single-cylinder engine, for a lower center of gravity and reduced friction. It also uses shaft final drive, for mile after mile of reliable, trouble-free operation. Because the Recon is an agile 2-wheel-drive model, light steering and handling are standard equipment.
