2018 Honda FourTrax Rincon

/
Performance And Comfort In The Outdoors.

Ever since early man was living in a cave instead of out in the open, he’s been looking for ways to make life easier. Now we have flat-screen smart TVs and Wi-Fi internet—the ol’ cave is getting pretty cozy.

The same goes with all-terrain vehicles. Sure, you can buy one that meets the minimum requirements for some basic purposes. Or you can get smart and hook yourself up with a Honda Rincon, one of the most refined, smooth, comfortable ATVs to ever take on what mother nature has to offer.

The Rincon stands at the top of our ATV lineup. It’s built around our biggest ATV engine, and it’s a class-leader when it comes to comfort, ride quality, and innovation too.

As with any Honda, it all starts with the engine: a liquid-cooled 675cc single-cylinder featuring a twin-plug cylinder head. The longitudinal-crankshaft layout (a Honda innovation) means more power actually gets to the ground, so the Rincon can offer the real-world power of the competition’s bigger, heavier models.

Premium long-travel suspension, rugged bodywork, strong steel racks front and rear—the Rincon’s list of features just keeps going on and on. One thing you can’t see but becomes readily apparent is the Rincon’s all-day comfort, something serious ATV riders will appreciate. And then there’s just the way the Rincon looks: Strong. Purposeful. Like a flagship ATV should.

Comfort is about much more than taking life easy. With a comfortable ATV, you can stay in the saddle longer, see more, get more done, and pay more attention to what’s going on around you. The Rincon isn’t just the comfortable choice; it’s the smart choice.

Innovations

  • ELECTRICAL OUTPUT: Thanks to the neodymium-magnet stator design, the powerful ACG produces sufficient amount of electricity, so you can run more Honda Genuine Accessories.
  • TRAXLOK®: TraxLok® lets you select either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Two-wheel drive gives you lighter steering on flat ground, while four-wheel drive maximizes available traction when you need it. Choosing between them couldn't be easier, and you get the best of both worlds.
  • 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 because you don't have to fuss with a conventional left-foot ATV shift lever.
  • PROGRAMMED FUEL INJECTION (PGM-FI): The Rincon's Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) and 40mm throttle body delivers crisp, seamless performance while ensuring hassle-free operation in cold conditions and varying altitudes.
  • SEMI-DRY SUMP ENGINE DESIGN: Compact and lighter-weight, the Rincon’s overhead-valve, semi-dry-sump design creates an engine that's shorter from top to bottom. That returns two big benefits: it enhances handling by lowering the engine's center of gravity, and it also allows for greater ground clearance.
  • DUAL-PLUG HEAD: Using two spark plugs that fire together helps ensure clean, fast, thorough combustion. It’s a win-win situation: The engine runs cleaner, with greater fuel-efficiency and range.
  • LONGITUDINAL ENGINE LAYOUT: By orienting the crankshaft front to back in the chassis in our ATV and side-by-side engines, we route the flow of power straight to the wheels without any unnecessary right-angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more grunt to the ground.
  • AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION: No belts to slip or clutches to wear out on the Rincon—it features an automotive-style three-speed automatic transmission just like a truck’s, so you can depend on it for both a smooth ride and years of trouble-free service.
  • INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION (IRS): The Rincon's Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) returns two big benefits: First, it helps ensure constant tire contact with the ground for superior traction; second, it gives you an ultra-smooth ride over rough terrain, so you don't get beat up on the trail.
  • CATALYTIC CONVERTER: Cars and trucks have had them for 40 years—and the Rincon features one as well. People who work outdoors or who enjoy nature know you’ve got to protect the planet—and the Rincon is doing its part.
