PICK THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB
The smart craftsman knows that you have to match the tool for the job. And there’s clearly a vehicle in your off-road toolbox that you’re going to come to depend on: the 2021 Honda FourTrax Recon. It’s not our biggest ATV; but it is one of our most versatile. Light and maneuverable; it won’t wear you out the way some larger ATVs can. And it won’t make a big dent in your wallet; either. It features a specially designed 250-class engine that delivers plenty of low-rpm torque and power. Available in two versions: one featuring our conventional foot-shift ATV transmission; or the Recon ES model offering Honda’s Electric Shift Program (ESP). Plus; this year’s Recon is better than ever—with a new grille; new fenders; a new headlight and great new colors.
Features may include:
Compact and lighter-weight; the Recon's semi-dry-sump and overhead valve designs create 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.
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.
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 pushing one of two handlebar-mounted buttons. ESP is also a bonus when riding in heavy or mud/snow-covered boots.
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.
