That name may sound familiar. The new team taps into the already successful efforts of Raceco, an off-road racing business that already supports Talon competitors in a variety of racing series across the US. Raceco has fielded class-winning efforts in the SCORE International Baja 1000 and 500, as well as the Best in the Desert and Ultra 4 series. Now, with factory backing directly from Honda, the team will direct its efforts toward the Champ series.
The Honda TRX250X, formerly known as the TRX250EX, is a nimble handling, peppy running, sporty looking machine that’s great at getting new riders hooked on ATVing. Its reliability allows it to be handed down in families again and again, adding a lot to its value. One of the best things about it is that it’s a machine that younger riders can afford to save up for and purchase. Brand new this ATV costs $5000, but you can find them used for much less.
An ATV windshield can be a huge bonus to your riding experience, deflecting dirt, rocks, rain, and other debris so you don’t have to suffer through being pelted repeatedly in the face as you blast down the trail. And although the effects would be tough to measure, putting a windshield on your ATV can also help improve its aerodynamics, deflecting some amount of oncoming air around the rider and reducing drag. Sure, that’s only going to show up at higher speeds, as a modest bump to fuel economy and top speed, but every little bit counts.
