BIG UTILITY IN A RIGHT-SIZED PACKAGE
Lean, mean, and engineered to last, the Honda FourTrax Recon is one of the hardest-working ATVs out there. It features a specially designed 250-class engine that delivers plenty of low-rpm torque and power. And it's available in two versions: one featuring our conventional foot-shift ATV transmission, or the Recon ES model offering Honda’s Electric Shift Program (ESP). It’s Honda quality and performance, distilled into an exceptionally versatile package.
ENGINE: SEMI-DRY-SUMP ENGINE DESIGN
Compact and lighter-weight, the Recon's semi-dry-sump and overhead valve designs creat an engine that's not only shorter from top to bottom, but one that enhances handling by lowering the center of gravity while also allowing for better ground clearance.
DESIGN: 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 wheels without any unnecessary right-angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more grunt to the ground.
CONVENIENCE: ELECTRIC SHIFT PROGRAM (ESP)
Shifting between gears should always be this easy. With Honda's available unique ESP system (ES models only), upshifting and downshifting is as simple and fast as pusing one of two handle-mounted buttons. ESP is also a bonus when riding in heavy or mud/snow-covered boots.
ENGINEERING: SHAFT DRIVE
clean, efficient, proven, low-maintenance. Shaft drive is the perfect choice for a machine like this, and for riders who pile on the miles. You never have to worry about lubrication or adjustment out on the trail. And an added plus: it helps keep your ATV cleaner too.
