2014 Honda TRX400X

Posted on by  

Meet the 2014 Honda TRX400X. There aren’t any significant upgrades for the 2014 model year except for a new set of graphics which give it a slightly more aggressive appearance.

As far as power is concerned, this agile ATV is propelled by a 397cc, RFVC, air-cooled, dry-sump single-cylinder four-stroke engine which is brought to life by an electric starter. The engine is mated to a five speed transmission with reverse and manual clutch.

The Honda TRX400X rides on front independent double-wishbone suspensions with Showa shocks with five-position spring preload adjustability and rear Pro-Link fully adjustable single Showa Shock.

Apart from the long travel suspensions, the 2014 Honda TRX is also equipped with a set of Knobby radial tires that measure 22 X 7-10 up front and 20 X 10-9 out back.

The 2014 Honda TRX400X will be available in showrooms since December 2013.

Hit the jump for more information on the 2014 Honda TRX400X.

Overview

Honda TRX400X

This One Was Born Ready.

Availability: December, 2013. Relentless. Tireless. Tenacious. There are plenty of things you can say about the Honda TRX400X, but to fully understand it, you have to experience it. That’s because underneath the race-style bodywork lies everything the warrior ATV rider needs, starting with the SOHC, 397cc, air-cooled, dry-sump RFVC (Radial Four-Valve Combustion Chamber) engine. Then there’s the triple-disc brakes. Baja-ready Pro-Link® suspension with long travel. Standard reverse and all the reliability you’d expect from a Honda. We’ve even given it all-new graphics for an even more aggressive look.

So if you’re looking for high-performance ATV that delivers the power, comfort and dependability you need to tackle any terrain all day long, look no further than the Honda TRX400X.

Important Safety Information

Honda TRX400X

2014 Honda TRX400X Features and Benefits:

Honda TRX400X

Heavy-Duty Clutch

Not just a motorcycle clutch in an ATV engine, the TRX400X’s heavy-duty clutch has 2mm-thick plates that are specially designed to stand up to sport-ATV demands.

Triple Disc Brakes

Honda TRX400X

Featuring excellent stopping power and superior feel and feedback, these triple disc brakes (two front, one rear) also run cool. An aluminum rear caliper stay also helps shave weight.

Skidplate Protection

Honda TRX400X

High-impact plastic skidplates protect engine cases, rear-brake disc and drive sprockets from the trials of the trails. It’s all part of Honda’s attention to detail and why your TRX400X is designed to be trouble-free.

Counterbalancer

Honda TRX400X

Some other big singles beat you up with vibration and buzz, but not the TRX400X. A gear-driven counterbalancer minimizes engine vibration for smooth operation.

High-Performance 397cc Engine

Honda TRX400X

Radial Four-Valve Combustion Chamber (RFVC), the same design that powered the bulletproof XR400R, ensures maximum combustion efficiency and horsepower. Camshaft timing developed specifically to meet ATV requirements for torque and useable horsepower.

Snorkel-type Airbox

Honda TRX400X

If you sometimes ride in less-than-ideal conditions, you’ll appreciate the TRX400X’s snorkel-type airbox. Designed to help your engine avoid contamination from water and dirt, you’ll keep going while your buddies are stuck.

Cast-Aluminum Swingarm

Honda TRX400X

One-piece cast-aluminum swingarm is a specially designed piece that optimizes strength, rigidity and durability, but that is still light and which helps reduce unsprung weight.

Competition-Spec Suspension and Chassis

Honda TRX400X

Pro-Link® rear suspension features a one-piece cast-aluminum swingarm and fully adjustable large-diameter aluminum-body piggyback Showa® shock delivering 9.1 inches of travel. Triple disc brakes feature superb stopping power and a weight-saving aluminum rear caliper stay.
