Honda's heavyweight ATV now available in Black

A part of the Honda ATV lineup since 2003, it should come as no surprise that the Rincon, Honda’s most powerful ATV, returns for 2017.

The Rincon returns unchanged for 2017, though Honda did introduce a new Black color option, in addition to Red and Honda Phantom Camo.

Powering the 2017 Honda Rincon is a 675cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine.

Features include fully Independent Rear Suspension, radial tires and an automotive-style, beltless three-speed automatic transmission that can also be shifted manually, giving riders an impressive amount of control.

Along with the new Black color, the 2017 Honda Rincon is available in Red and Honda Phantom Camo (pictured).

With 6.9 inches of front suspension travel and 8.0 inches out back, the Rincon offers up 9.1 inches of ground clearance. Curb weight is 657 pounds (Red with aluminum wheels) or 669 pounds (Honda Phantom Camo or Black with steel wheels).

The 2017 Honda Rincon starts at $9,299 and can be found in Honda ATV dealerships starting in June.
