The Rancher’s Honda Automatic DCT transmission offers strong internals, fast shifts, excellent control, true compression-braking capability, and an automatic program that upshifts and downshifts while you concentrate on riding. It’s one of the best available choices you can make.
Being able to count on crisp performance and starting under any conditions is a must for anyone who depends on their ATV. Thanks to Honda Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)—featuring a 34mm throttle body, 12-hole injector, and an oxygen sensor that allows the fuel mapping to instantaneously adjust to any riding condition—the Rancher not only ensures trouble-free operation in the cold and at varying altitudes, it reduces emissions and enhances fuel efficiency.
The Rancher Automatic DCT with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) has over 8 inches of travel and 9 inches of clearance. That returns two big benefits: first, it helps ensure constant tire contact with the ground for superior traction; second, it gives you a smooth ride over rough terrain, so you don’t get beat up on the trail.
The Rancher’s racks feature strong, steel construction, and they include a large flat area. Better yet, they’re designed to integrate with our Honda Pro-Connect™ system. You can quickly attach and detach accessories like our cargo boxes, without tools, for added flexibility and convenience.

This is more than just an automatic. It’s technology that gives your ATV some huge real-world advantages.
With smooth power, true compression braking and optimal traction everywhere, you get even better control.
Smooth power delivery means you can motor up and over large rocks at speeds that let you plan your next move.
This is tough, reliable Honda technology at its best, proven for years in hundreds of thousands of units.
Choose between automatic shifting, or shift for yourself using manual mode and fingertip paddle-type shifters.
Intelligent power delivery helps keep the driving wheels from breaking loose, offering a smooth, continuous flow of power without the shifting interruptions that can cause momentary traction loss. It’s a huge advantage in rocky or muddy conditions.
Compression braking is key to control, especially when entering turns or on technical downhills. Since DCT has manual-type gearbox internals and not some add-on system, you get genuine compression braking—and control.
By constantly monitoring power delivery to the drive wheels, you get the most of all available traction. Predictable, smooth power comes in handy in areas where traction is at a premium.
Because our DCT is so efficient, more power gets to the ground. Plus, there are no belts to slip, break, or burn up.
Every DCT offers a Manual Mode where you can shift on command with a pair of paddle-type shifters mounted on the handlebars.
