Sized Right. Built Smart.
Size—the right size—matters. That’s why so many riders choose the Honda Recon. Because you get big ATV benefits like durability, power, and build quality—but in a package that costs less, and is easier to load, unload, and maneuver on tight trails.
The Recon is a powerful, versatile, rugged ATV, but one that also offers a smaller overall footprint. It’s a powerhouse of an athlete in the welterweight division. A specially designed 250-class engine is engineered for plenty of low-rpm torque and power, where the real work gets done. Its two-wheel-drive design features Honda’s famous longitudinal engine layout for more efficient power transfer.
Plus, the Recon is 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.
Sized right, built smart, and engineered to last—with the Recon, you go big where it counts.
