2013 Honda TRX250X

Posted on by  

The Honda TRX 250X is a versatile ATV that is perfectly suited for a wide range of riders.

At its heart lies an OHC, air-cooled, longitudinally mounted engine that offers a perfect combination between power and efficiency. The engine is combined with an innovative SportClutch and a five speed transmission with reverse mode.

Anyone knows that power without control is useless, so the ATV needed a set of capable suspensions to help you use the entire power generated by the engine. Therefore Honda equipped its TRX250X with a front independent double-wishbone suspension (5.9 inches of wheel travel) and a rear swingarm with single shock absorber (5.7 inches travel) which work together to deliver a great handling.

The ATV rides on lightweight aluminum wheels shod in front 22 x 7-10 and rear 22 x 10-9 knobby tires.

The Honda TRX50X is offered with a starting price of $4,499.

What kind of rider is the right kind of rider when it comes to a TRX250X? Just about anyone 16 or older. That’s because the TRX250X is perfectly suited for new riders, experienced riders, back wood trails and hot desert sands.

It all starts with an OHC, air-cooled, longitudinally mounted engine that produces Honda’s famous mix of smooth, efficient power and loads of torque right when you need it. From there, we added our exclusive SportClutch™ that lets you manually shift for yourself, while also minimizing the potential of stalling for new riders. A shaft final drive designed to provide years of maintenance-free fun. Independent front suspension for improved control over varying conditions. And loads of that Honda reliability people love.

Important Safety Information:

And its unique Honda combination of agile handling, light weight, contemporary styling, easy-riding ergonomics and legendary quality put it miles ahead of the competition.

Rugged, Reliable 229cc OHV Engine

Lightweight OHV air-cooled 229cc engine is longitudinally mounted, allowing direct driveshaft alignment to rear wheels for more efficient power transfer. Two-valve cylinder-head design features performance-optimized valve timing, a 31.5mm-diameter intake valve and a 27mm-diameter exhaust valve to produce a broad, usable powerband.

Independent Front Suspension
