Honda Biggest ATV. And One Of The Best Anywhere.
The Honda Rincon got to the top of our ATV lineup by offering the whole package: Our biggest ATV engine, unmatched comfort and ride quality, and class-leading innovation. For 2015 we’ve added some big improvements that make it better than ever. First, its liquid-cooled 675cc engine gets a new cylinder head this year, and now features twin-spark-plug cylinder head for fast, clean and efficient combustion. Adding an O2 sensor and a catalytic converter means it runs greener too. All this adds up to a machine that gets greater fuel efficiency and range. A new stator with neodymium magnets gives you more electrical power, especially important if you plan on running accessories. New Maxxis tires offer superior traction and long life. And finally there’s a big change in the way the Rincon looks, since it’s now available in Honda’s new proprietary Honda Phantom Camo® as well as red and green.
2015 Honda FourTrax Rincon Key Features:
Independent Rear Suspension
The Rincon’s IRS returns two big benefits: First it helps maintain tire contact with the ground for superior traction. And second, it gives you an ultra-smooth ride over rough terrain, so you don’t get beat up on the trail.
Lower Emissions, More Range
With its 675cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected four-stroke engine, the Rincon can power through terrain and trails with ease. New twin-plug cylinder head and an oxygen sensor gives the 2015 Rincon greater fuel efficiency, too.
3-Speed Automatic Transmission
No belts to slip or clutches to wear out on the Rincon—it features a 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.
Accessories As Good As Your ATV
When you’re riding the best ATV on the planet, only the best accessories will do—Honda Genuine Accessories. These accessories are designed specifically for your Honda vehicle and feature the same quality and durability you’ve come to expect from Honda.
2015 Honda FourTrax Rincon Features and Benefits:
Making The Best Even Better.
When it comes to technical innovations, the Rincon is way ahead of the pack. New this year the dual-plug head and catalytic converter make the Rincon cleaner than ever, and everyone can appreciate that. Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) delivers a precise, smooth ride over rough terrain, and the automotive-style transmission uses a heavy-duty hydraulic torque converter. Best of all, the 675cc engine offers plenty of low- and midrange power.
More Electrical Output
Thanks to a new neodymium magnet stator design, the new, more powerful ACG produces more electricity, so you can run more Honda Genuine Accessories.
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 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 bodies deliver crisp, seamless performance while ensuring hassle-free operation in cold conditions and varying altitudes.
Semi-Dry-Sump Engine Design
Compact and lighter-weight, the Foreman’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 increases ground clearance.
Twin Spark Plug Cylinder Head
Using two spark plugs that fire together helps ensure clean, fast, thorough combustion. It’s a win-win situation: The engine runs cleaner, and you get more power from every ounce of gasoline greater fuel-efficiency and range.
