The 2015 Rincon is powered by a 675 liquid-cooled lump, with OHV, a dual-spark plug design head, and semi-dry-sump architecture. This 4-stroke single is fed through a 40mm throttle body and uses PGM-FI injection and digital ignition with electronic advance. The dual-plug design seems to be a derivation from the cylinder head of the Foreman, and with the revisions Honda mentions having made, things look bright. An O2 sensor was added for the catalytic converter of the exhaust system, which should also add a more environmentally-friendly operation to the improved mileage.

The transmission section is equipped with a hydraulic torque converter, three forward gears and a reverse one, with Electric Shifting Program, a very convenient feature which eliminates the fuss of using the shift lever with heavy or mud-heady boots, and making upshifting and downshifting easy in any conditions. The TraxLok and torque-sensitive front differential provide extra grip when needed and endow the 2015 Rincon to tackle tough obstacles with more ease.

Since we’re dealing with premium-class ATV technology, the new Rincon comes with fully independent double-wishbone suspensions, 6.9 and 8 inches travel for front and rear respectively (17.5-20.3 cm), while stopping power comes from dual 180mm front rotors and a single-disc rear brake. 25 x 10-12” tires shoe the pressed steel wheels.

Honda’s 2015 Rincon comes with a 657 lbs (297 kg) wet, ready-to-ride weight and includes a 4.4-gallon (16.7-liter) fuel tank, with a more efficient ACG installed, providing more power for the numerous Honda or third-party accessories. No price was mentioned at the time the info on the 2015 Rincon surfaced, and all we know is that the new ATV will be available in red, olive and Phantom Camo.
