Forget About Bigger. How About Better?

There’s an old saying: It’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog. And that’s certainly true when it comes to the world of all-terrain vehicles. Bigger isn’t always better—like on a tight trail, when it’s time to load and unload, or when it’s time to open up your wallet.

Thank goodness for the Honda Recon—an ATV that gets it. The Recon is a powerful, versatile, rugged ATV, but one that also offers a smaller overall footprint. Its compact size helps you maneuver through tighter trails that would stop some larger ATVs. But the Recon is a powerhouse of an athlete in the welterweight class. Its specially designed 250-class engine is engineered for plenty of low-rpm torque and power, where the real work gets done. It’s two-wheel-drive layout features Honda’s famous longitudinal engine design for more efficient power transfer. And the Recon is even available in two different models: one features our conventional foot-shift ATV transmission, while the Recon ES offers Honda’s Electric Shift Program (ESP), which lets you upshift and downshift using two handlebar-mounted buttons.

The Recon. It’s one of the smartest ATV choices you can make.
