Honda Rincon

The Honda Rincon is one of a newer style of All-terrain vehicle (ATV) known as Sport/Utility models.

Previously ATV's came in either the more common utility variety that is very popular for use on farms or the sports/racing models. The utility models are larger, have racks for carrying equipment, and full coverage fenders to keep the rider dry. They are usually slower than their sports counterparts but many models offer 4x4 and are capable of covering very rough terrain. Sports models often have no fenders, sit much lower, and are designed for all out speed most commonly associated with tracks and smoother terrains where their top speeds can be utilized. However in the past years ATV'ing has became one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Outdoor Adventures Magazine stated in 2003 that with the increase in fuel prices that ATV's are on the verge of overtaking boating as one of the most popular summer powersports-type outdoor activities sighting that many ATV's can run all day on only a few gallons of fuel.

In recent years with the boom in popularity many have been drawn to ATV's yet wanted faster speeds and more sporty handling than offered by the utility type ATV's, yet at the same time found the lack of storage space, less comfortable riding characteristics, and increased danger of the sports models to be a negative. Manufactures began to realize an untapped market by combining the size, comfort, storage, power, ease of riding, and safety of the utility models with the more agile handling, speed, and some of the sportiness of the sports models and the hybrid Sport/Utility models were born. They usually have many available options and accessories and are well designed for all-day riding comfort.

Rincon Generation 1 (2003-2005)

Honda introduced the Rincon as their new top-of-the-line ATV. The Rincon is the head of their FourTrax lineup and utilizes Honda's largest ATV liquid-cooled four-stroke engine, A first for any ATV is the use of an automotive-style automatic 3 speed transmission which shifts either automatically or can be switched on the fly to sport-shift manual mode that Honda calls ESP. Also utilized were Radial Tires based on popular SUV styles. A center hydraulic disc brake system mounted on the rear output shaft, and the first fully independent rear suspension system ever used by Honda. Also included was Traxlok, enabling riders to switch between 2WD and 4WD modes with a simple thumb-operated switch, the Electric Shift Program (ESP) that allows shifting by simply pushing large up/down buttons using the left thumb, and a torque-sensing front differential that reduces torque steer for lighter steering effort in 4WD.

The 2003 Rincon officially known as the TRX650 quickly became very popular and was dubbed the "Cadillac of ATV's" by ATV Enthusiast Magazine, a nickname that stuck. Part of the Rincon's popularity is due to the all-day comfort provided by the ergonomically designed dual density foam used in the seat, the very light and easy steering requiring less effort to turn and control than virtually any other ATV on the market at the time, the intuitive controls that even first-time operators find simple and easy to understand, and reliability. One magazine noted that the new automotive style automatic transmission eliminated the belts used by every other manufacture allowing the Rincon to negotiate deeper water where the belts on most ATVs would become wet and begin slipping. This particular feature has made it very popular with the 20-Something's who use them for driving through sometimes surprisingly deep mud and water with only very minor modifications, though not endorsed by Honda themselves.

Available beginning in 2004 Honda added the GPScape model officially known as the TRX650GPS as an option which adds a built-in GPS unit contained within the instrument cluster assembly. The GPS featured storage for up to 100 waypoints, digital compass function indicating travel direction and an automatic compensating clock.

2003-2005 General Specifications

Engine Type: 649cc liquid-cooled OHV semi-dry-sump longitudinally mounted single-cylinder four-stroke Bore and Stroke: 100.0mm x 82.6mm Carburetion: 37mm CV Ignition: CD with electronic advance Starter: Electric with auxiliary recoil Transmission: Automatic with hydraulic torque converter, three forward gears, reverse, and electronic controls Driveline: Direct front and rear drive-shafts with torque-sensitive front differential Suspension Front: Independent double-wishbone; 6.9 inches travel Suspension Rear: Independent double-wishbone; 8.0 inches travel Brakes Front: Triple-sealed hydraulic drum Brakes Rear: Single hydraulic disc Tires Front: 25 x 8-12 radial Tires Rear: 25 x 10-12 radial Overall Length: 83.7 inches Overall Width: 46.1 inches Overall Height: 47.5 inches Seat Height: 34.5 inches Ground Clearance: 10.0 inches Wheelbase: 50.8 inches Turning Radius: 10.8 feet Dry Weight: 600 pounds Fuel Capacity: 4.5 gallons, including 1.0-gallon reserve Available Colors: Red, Olive, Black

Rincon Generation 2 (2006-Current)

The Rincon continues as Hondas top-of-the line ATV but starting in 2006 Honda gave the FourTrax Rincon an update in response to customer request. The Rincon 650 became known as the Rincon 680i when the engine size enlarged from 649cc to 675cc. Officially known as the TRX680F and TRX680GPS. Along with the larger engine Electronic Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) was introduced. New colors including NaturalGear Camouflage was added, developed by a firm in Arkansas many enthusiast consider the patterns one of the most realistic available blending easily into backgrounds, particularly found in many parts of the southern United States.

This increased engine size came via a larger bore in the single-cylinder power plant, growing from 100mm to 102mm. Also, the cylinder is now of cast-sleeve design, which permits cylinder boring to an oversize of plus 0.25mm should the need ever occur. An all-new camshaft profile was utilized for increased power, a new exhaust system ensures a quiet ride, a rollover sensor now kills the engine in the event the Rincon is partially or fully overturned. The a PGM-FI system uses a 40mm throttle body replacing the carburetor used in previous Rincons. The changes resulted in an eight percent increase in torque and at a higher RPM peak, from 4500 rpm to 5000 rpm. Peak horsepower remained 6000 RPM. The overall peak power jumped approximately seven percent compared to the 2005 Rincon. A change that yielded a higher top speed than before, though electronically limited on US models to approximately 65 MPH many owners choose to have this safely feature disabled. Honda added more durable crankshaft bearings and beefed-up the transmissions gears to ensure durability and longer life while better utilizing the new engines additional power. According to Honda the PGM-FI system boasts a high-tech 12-hole split-pattern fuel injector to maximize fuel distribution to both intake valves. This is reputed to be the same injector used in Honda's popular SUV making a replacement readily available at many auto parts stores. A new high pressure fuel pump with a built-in reservoir feeds the system. Fuel injection allows the ECU to provide many benefits over previous, carbureted models that were gravity feed from the tank. The ECU can now adjust to variables and changing riding conditions in a seamless and fully automatic fashion. In addition to increased power output, some other benefits included improved fuel mileage, elimination of the manual choke and much-easier cold starting, automatic compensation at different altitudes, automatic temperature compensation, a shorter engine warm-up period, and smoother idle. An idle air control valve (IACV) establishes a basic idle setting of 1400 rpm, plus or minus 50 rpm. The automotive style automatic transmission was also updated to improve overall drivability and the torque converter was tweaked to reduce warm-up to accommodate start-and-go during extreme cold-weather riding.The manual fuel shut-off petcock was removed, with the PGM-FI an automotive style fuel gauge was added. When the fuel level reaches the E symbol a low-fuel warning light begins to flash letting the rider know that they have about 1.1 gallons of fuel remaining, or enough for approximately 28 miles of reserve range. Battery capacity was increased from 14AH to 18AH. The Rincon still has a manual recoil (rope) starter with the pull handle hidden behind a snap-off panel on the right side and incorporates an automatic internal decompression system for easier starting. Also added was a newer style reusable urethane air filter that can be washed and re-used. Mechanical features for 2006 were dual front disc brakes. Something many owners had asked for in comparison to the original Rincon's single drum brake on the front output shaft. New valving in the rear suspension makes the Rincon more even more nimble than the original. Other changes made the shock action smoother in operation than in the previous unit as well.

2006-2008 General Specifications

Engine Type: 675cc liquid-cooled OHV semi-dry-sump longitudinally mounted single-cylinder four-stroke Bore and Stroke: 102.0mm x 82.6mm Fuel System: Electronic fuel injection (PGM-FI) with Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) idle control Ignition: Full-transistorized type with electronic advance Starter: Electric Starting, with Manual backup Transmission: Automatic with hydraulic torque converter, three forward gears, reverse and electronic controls Driveline: Direct front and rear drive shafts with torque-sensitive front differential Suspension Front: Independent double-wishbone; 6.9 inches travel Suspension Rear: Independent double-wishbone; 8.0 inches travel Brakes Front: Dual hydraulic 180mm disc Brakes Rear: Single hydraulic disc Tires Front: 25 x 8-12 radial Tires Rear: 25 x 10-12 radial Wheels: Aluminum Alloy Overall Length: 83.2 inches Overall Width: 46.8 inches Overall Height: 47.5 inches Seat Height: 34.5 inches Ground Clearance: 10.0 inches Wheelbase: 50.8 inches Dry Weight: 604 pounds Fuel Capacity: 4.5 gallons, including 1.08-gallon reserve Available Colors: Red, Olive, NaturalGear Camouflage, Artic White(2008)

Honda TRX680 Rincon–FI trouble. | Storm's Cycles

Квадроцикл привезли из Москвы,  с целым букетом проблем, один из которых, моргающая ошибка FI (fuel injection), хотя хозяин и посетил кучу дорогих сервисов.

Кроме этого, в нем обнаружились такие неисправности как:

1. Не стабильная работа двигателя, плохая динамика, чихание и произвольное прекращение работы.

2. Проблема проводки, при включении света- мотор глох.

3. Разбитые колесные подшипники, заднее колесо болталось как хвост в проруби.

Что бы ничего не сжечь при дальнейшей диагностике двигателя,  сперва  разбираюсь с проводкой, возле рулевой колонки снимаю декоративный щиток и вижу  “картину маслом”  как сказал бы Давид Гоцман.

Странно, что раньше ни один сервис этого не обнаружили. Пол часа работы, и при включении света мотор уже не глохнет.

Далее предстояло решить основную проблему FI, можно было бы долго гадать, считать блинки, рыться в мануалах и т.д. Я сделал проще, подключил диагностическое оборудования и считал ошибки.

Что-то не так с датчиком температуры входящего воздуха, обрыв, короткое замыкание или  его параметры вышли за пределы нормы. Располагается он в корпусе воздушного фильтра сзади, и крепится одним винтом.

Показался мне он сразу очень знакомым, и после непродолжительного поиска в интернете, догадка подтвердилась, точно такой же установлен на Honda GL1800. К счастью мне удалось его найти за пару дней на ближайшей моторазборке.

Пока датчик находился в поиске, я провел процедуру регулировки зазоров клапанов и очистки корпуса дроссельной заслонки от грязи, а ее было не мало.

Чтобы добраться до выпускных клапанов, необходимо разобрать пол мотоцикла, снять весь боковой пластик и бензобак.

Снимаю крышки для доступа к механизму регулировки, он простой,- “винт-гайка”.

Вместо положенных зазоров:

IN –0,15

EX –0,33

я получил IN – 0,10 (0,08) и EX 0,25 (0,23). Естественно, стабильности работы двигателя  это не добавляет.

Сам корпус дроссельной был в плачевном состоянии, пришлось “кипятить” три часа и менять две спецжидкости, для нормальной очистки.

Датчик холостого хода так же пришлось мыть, механизм работал с трудом, временами подклинивая. На вал наношу смазку на основе силикона, она не меняет своих свойств при любых температурах. Снова подключаю компьютер и даю команду на открытие –закрытие — теперь двигается как положено, без заеданий.

Учитывая качество российского бензина и опыт прошлый опыт,  сразу установил форсунку в стенд, предварительно очистив от грязи.

Результат ее работы опечалил, вместо нормального факела я увидел ровную струю топлива, даже засомневался ,что смогу ее отмыть. Но, к счастью, многолетний опыт и приличный запас всевозможной жуткой химии спас ситуацию. На видео  вы можете увидеть разницу.

До очистки

После очистки

 

Параллельно с работами описанными выше, я  менял все технические жидкости, и начал с масла двигателя.

Тут все просто, один болт в картере снизу мотоцикла и крышка масляного фильтра справа.

Затем слил весь антифриз.

Болт для слива, расположен на помпе, не очень удобный доступ снизу, но если поддомкратить, работать можно.

После осмотра заднего редуктора и дифференциала, мне показалось что их обслуживали давно, или вообще никогда.

Для замены масла необходимо отвернуть сбоку пробку и снизу сливной болт. 

Масло было коричневое, с крупинками металла, и очень жидкое, не смотря на прохладную погоду.

Наполняю свежим маслом, производитель рекомендует SAE #80.

В переднем редукторе не хватало около 100 грамм, кроме того, что оно было черным и жидким.

Попутно меняется тормозная жидкость, но фотографировать “грязный-чистый” бачок  уже не стал. Да и не особо были они грязными.

Как я уже говорил, в заднем правом колесе наблюдался серьезный люфт, подшипник видимо совсем развалился.

Для замены необходимо снять само колесо, и открутить два болта удерживающих кулак.

Снимаю шплинт и откручиваю гайку:

стягиваю хаб, вышел он легко, хотя по идее тоже должен выпрессовываться.

Подшипник рассыпался так, что выдавил и сломал стопорное кольцо.

С помощью пресса о легко извлекается, и на его место устанавливается новый оригинальный.

Воздушный фильтр промывается любым подходящим сольвентом, продувается, сушится и пропитывается свежим маслом для моющихся фильтров.

К этому времени, привезли датчик IAT, после установки на место, FI  warnig light больше не моргал, а диагностика показала нормальные параметры двигателя.

После запуска и прогрева, мотор работал как положено, ровно и красиво, а после хорошего отжига и  небольшого дрифта по местности, я понял, что и динамика вернулась на место. Теперь можно отправлять квад счастливому владельцу : )

Honda Rincon 680 Innovations

From its unassuming beginnings in 1948, Honda has been defined by creative thinking. Everything that wears a Honda logo comes from a heritage so deeply rooted in innovation that standing still is the same as going backward. Which is why-from the first 1970 ATC90 to the 2017 FourTrax Rincon–more advancements in ATV technology have come from Honda than anyone else.

Honda ATVs have always been about smart solutions to tough problems. That sort of fresh thinking goes deeper than flashy technology. It transcends any simplistic bigger-equals-better mentality. Much deeper Honda’s ATV engineering is based on the premise that the truly great ideas are the ones that stand up to a full day’s work. That’s why Honda ATV engineers tackle the challenges of research and development firsthand. They ask questions. They understand what customers expect a product to do, perhaps better than the customers themselves. Staying ahead of the curve with ATV engineering that’s as functional as it is innovative isn’t easy. It’s just the Honda Way. What follows is a compendium of landmark Honda innovations that have shaped the development of the All-Terrain Vehicle.

Automotive-style Automatic Transmission

A first in the ATV world, the Rincon incorporates a true automotive-style automatic transmission to route power from the engine through a hydraulic torque converter to drive to three forward gears and reverse. An electronic control unit (ECU) takes data regarding throttle opening, vehicle speed, engine speed, gear selector position, brake application and engine oil temperature to determine the optimum gear selection. And because the Honda automatic transmission shifts electronically, there are no unsightly and trouble-prone vacuum lines. Plus, the system provides true engine braking, unlike the belt-drive systems used on other brands of ATVs. In addition, the Honda automatic transmission is fully sealed and impervious to external contamination. Since the transmission uses multi-filtered engine oil as hydraulic fluid, this design simplifies maintenance and ensures an adequate fluid supply under all operating conditions.

Independent Rear Suspension

As another notable Honda first, the Rincon features an independent rear suspension with lightweight forged aluminum components to provide plenty of sophisticated, well-controlled wheel travel. This double-wishbone design incorporates forged aluminum knuckles and upper/lower A-arms that are not only strong but also yield a significant savings in unsprung weight. The rear knuckle pivots feature lightweight metal bushings in place of conventional ball joints and radius arms, thereby eliminating toe-in as the rear suspension travels through its stroke. This elegantly simple design maintains rear wheel alignment and further reduces unsprung weight, contributing to the Rincon’s responsive handling. Also, lightweight single-tube gas-charged rear shocks and a stabilizer bar deliver plush, well-controlled damping through the Rincon’s exceptional 8.0 inches of rear wheel travel. As an added bonus, the lack of a rear final drive case adds to the Rincon’s laudable ground clearance for even better maneuverability.

Longitudinal Engine / Driveline

Though Honda’s circle of engineering is comprised of interdependent components, ingenuity often radiates outward from a single bit of bright-think that makes a host of seemingly unrelated advancements possible.

Perhaps the most illustrative example of this is the powerful efficiency of Honda’s longitudinal engine and driveline layout introduced on the 1995 Foreman 400, and currently found in the Foreman 450, Recon, Rancher, Rubicon and Rincon models. It’s an optimal system sending power to the wheels in the most efficient manner: straight lines. The longitudinal layout has many advantages: a lower center of gravity, low seat height, increased ground clearance, lighter weight and fewer moving parts than traditional engine driveline systems.

First, the big picture. By aligning its crankshaft with the vehicle’s direction of travel, the longitudinal layout creates a lighter, simpler, elegantly efficient way of sending power to an ATV’s drive wheels. This simplicity may be best seen in the driveline: Using 45 percent fewer parts, the Foreman 400 4×4 transmission, for example, weighs 41 percent less than the more conventional design used in Honda’s legendary FourTrax 300 4×4, and delivers power to the wheels with 5 percent more efficiency.

Honda’s longitudinal engine also rides low enough in the frame to optimize ground clearance and define a low seat height, a difficult accomplishment in ATV design. Ordinarily, increasing ground clearance to avoid hang-ups such as rocks and stumps would raise the entire vehicle. But raising the entire vehicle also raises its center of mass. That compromises handling, especially when traversing inclines, an unacceptable situation to Honda engineers.

The solution is Honda’s shorter, overhead valve (OHV) engine design. Using pushrod valve actuation, this OHV design carries its camshaft down in the crankcase rather than up in the cylinder head to reduce engine height. The room that would have been taken up by an overhead cam is put to better use, lowering center of mass, lowering seat height and increasing ground clearance. A counter-rotating balance shaft makes the rubber-mounted engine smooth enough to allow the use of a lighter frame than would otherwise be necessary

Because Honda also wanted to maintain the power characteristics of an overhead-cam engine, namely the ability to rev higher than typical pushrod engines. Traditional steel pushrods would not work so lighter pushrods were necessary. Honda engineers set their sights on aluminum to create a lighter, quieter, higher-revving valve train. Aluminum pushrods expand at the same rate of aluminum cylinder and cylinder head, making for more consistent tappet clearance and a quieter engine than with stainless steel pushrods.

However, aluminum can wear faster and bend more easily than steel. A conventional welded steel cap on an aluminum pushrod created a brittle joint. Honda’s solution was to develop a new aluminum alloy pushrod material. Using a unique pushrod end shape, Honda engineers came up with a revolutionary design by attaching a steel ball to the end of this alloy pushrod. The results? Two tiny steel bearings and spark of electricity cleared the way for the most extraordinary, versatile ATV design on earth. And the bright thinking in Honda ATVs goes on from there.

Torque-sensing Differential

The Rancher, Rubicon and Rincon 4x4s use a clutchless front differential system that automatically sends power to whichever front wheel has the most grip. By virtually eliminating torque steer, the new system drastically reduces the effort necessary to initiate a turn.

Electric Shift Program (ESP)

Combining the control of a manual gearbox with the convenience of an automatic transmission, the ESP system lets riders shift up or down with the push of a button while an electric motor disengages the clutch, shifts the gearbox and re-engages the clutch. An onboard electronic control unit controls the speed of each shift perfectly after considering engine rpm and countershaft speed, as well as shift drum and shift spindle angles.

To maintain a smooth ride, ESP won’t let the gearbox go into first or reverse at engine speeds above 3000 rpm. To ensure adequate control on hills, ESP electronics won’t approve a shift to neutral at speeds greater than 2 mph.

 

Radial ATV Tires (Sport ATVs)

An industry first on the 1988 FourTrax 250R and currently offered on the TRX400EX. True radial design allows a tread pattern with bigger knobs that get a better grip on the dirt for improved straight-line acceleration and cornering traction.

Snorkel Air Intake

To keep dirt, water, sand, mud and other indigestibles out of the engine’s inlet tract, all Honda ATVs route incoming atmosphere to the reusable air filter via free-flowing ducting.

 

Rear Disc Brake

The Rincon comes equipped with Honda’s first rear disc ATV brake. Located upstream of the differential, this configuration reduces unsprung weight, and increases ground clearance and wheel travel. The Rincon’s rear brake also uses a Collet-type caliper–a first on an ATV–for improved maintenance.

Shaft Drive

Fully sealed shaft drive systems on Honda multi-purpose models deliver power to the wheels with maximum efficiency and minimum maintenance.

Starting

Hot or cold. Wet or dry. Honda engineers have put untold hours of development into exactly what it takes to start an ATV engine thousands of times under the most demanding conditions so you never have to worry about it.

Eccentric Axle Adjusters

O-ring chain-drive systems on Honda’s sport ATV models carry the rear axle in an eccentric mounting system that is rotated to maintain proper tension and perfect rear wheel alignment.

Sealed, Easy-access Maintenance-free Batteries

The sealed design of Honda’s ATV batteries give owners one less thing to worry about, and they’re easy to get at when it’s time for a new one.

 

Power on Demand: Honda’s Torque Converter for the 2017 Rincon 680

Honda’s innovative Rincon boasts the only true automotive-style automatic transmission in the entire ATV world. Though it features several innovations that cater specifically to ATV application, the Rincon’s torque converter operates in principle much like other torque converters. Basically, it links the engine to the automatic transmission much like a manual clutch connects an engine to a manual gearbox. Both systems drive the vehicle and they also come into play when the vehicle stops.

With a manual transmission, manual actuation of the clutch temporarily disengages the engine from the transmission when coming to a stop. In similar fashion, a torque converter performs this connect/disconnect function but automatically, as needed. Moreover, with a torque converter and automatic transmission, the rider need only release the throttle and operate the brake when stopping the vehicle.

A torque converter can accomplish this because it is a fluid coupling, rather than a solid coupling. At low engine speeds, the torque converter slips internally, which allows the engine to spin independently of the transmission. As a result, the engine of the stopped vehicle is allowed to run at idle while the transmission is in gear. When it’s time to roll, the rider simply opens the throttle to increase engine speed, and the torque converter then transfers power to the transmission to make the vehicle move.

In the Rincon, the engine output shaft drives the torque converter’s impeller, which uses fins to pump fluid–in this case, engine oil. As this fluid drives the vanes of the torque converter’s turbine, the spinning turbine then powers the automatic transmission to propel the vehicle. The Rincon’s automatic transmission employs three hydraulic clutches and an ECU that automatically selects one of three forward gears or reverse.

 

Revolution on four wheels

In 2003, the Rincon broke new ground with more Honda firsts than any ATV in recent history. It boasted Honda’s largest liquid-cooled four-stroke ATV engine, first automobile-style automatic ATV transmission, SUV-style radial Dunlop tires, a new rear center hydraulic disc brake system mounted on the rear propeller shaft and Honda’s first fully independent rear suspension system. And that’s just the short list. The Rincon also boasted Traxlok, enabling riders to switch between 2WD and 4WD with a simple thumb-operated switch, Electric Shift Program (ESP) that allows shifting by simply pushing buttons on the left handlebar and a torque-sensing front differential that reduces torque steer for lighter steering effort in 4WD.

The following year, Honda added a Rincon GPScape model, featuring a GPS unit contained within the standard meter assembly and featuring storage for up to 100 waypoints, digital compass function indicating travel direction and an automatic compensating clock. This technology has been dropped though and GPS is not available on the 2017 Rincon 680.

Nothing else even came close to the Rincon’s technical sophistication.

Bigger. And better.

The last redesign on the Rincon 680 model took another great leap forward with an engine that grew in displacement from 649cc to 675cc, reflecting the new TRX680F model designation. This boost comes by way of a larger bore in the single-cylinder powerplant, growing from 100mm to 102mm. Also, the cylinder is now of cast-sleeve design, which permits cylinder boring to an oversize of plus 0.25mm should the need ever occur. In addition, the Rincon now sports a new camshaft for added power, a new exhaust system to ensure quiet running, a rollover sensor that cuts engine power in the event the machine overturns, plus another Honda ATV first–a PGM-FI system with 40mm throttle body that replaces the carburetor used in previous Rincon.

These changes result in eight percent more torque at a higher rpm peak–up from 4500 rpm to 5000 rpm. Meanwhile, the horsepower peak remains at 6000 rpm, although peak power jumps approximately seven percent compared to the 2005 Rincon, changes that yield a higher top speed than before. More durable crankshaft bearings and beefed-up transmission gears ensure durability over the long haul with the Rincon’s additional power.

PGM-FI makes the world a better place

The Rincon’s PGM-FI system boasts a high-tech 12-hole split-pattern fuel injector to maximize fuel distribution to both intake valves. There’s also a high-pressure fuel pump with a built-in reservoir to feed the system.

In general, fuel injection brings a wealth of smart-think benefits that can adjust to real-world variables in a seamless, automatic fashion–all of which makes the riding experience that much more enjoyable. In addition to increased power output, some of these other benefits include improved fuel consumption; the elimination of the choke circuitry for easy cold starting; automatic altitude compensation to 12,000 feet; automatic temperature compensation from -13o to +104oFahrenheit; faster engine warm-up; and smoother idle control, thanks to the idle air control valve (IACV), which establishes a basic idle setting of 1400 rpm, plus or minus 50 rpm.

And to improve overall drivability, the Rincon’s automotive-style torque converter also features improvements in 2006 that allow for faster warm-up to better accommodate cold-weather riding.

As would be expected, the shift from carburetion to PGM-FI dictates the deletion of a fuel petcock with a reserve setting. Now the PGM-FI-equipped Rincon incorporates a fuel gauge, and when the fuel level reaches the E symbol a low-fuel warning light begins to blink. At that point, about 1.1 gallons of fuel remain in the tank, enough for approximately 28 miles of reserve range.

More innovative thinking went into the Rincon’s high-pressure fuel pump. For a fuel pump to provide consistent fuel delivery, it needs to be submerged in fuel. Other manufacturers place the pump in the main fuel tank, but this can reduce fuel capacity. For the Rincon, Honda designed a separate aluminum tank to house the fuel pump, mounted out of harm’s way in front of the engine between the top shock towers. This allows the Rincon to maintain its fuel capacity. The sub tank also works as a trap for contaminants, and includes a drain in the tank to purge any particulates that worked their way into the system.

Battery capacity also has been increased significantly in 2006, from 14AH to 18AH, but if at some point the battery becomes discharged to the extent that the electric starter will not function, the Rincon still offers an auxiliary recoil starter, which incorporates an automatic internal decompression system for easier starting.

Tougher. And smarter.

The Rincon update also brings a reusable urethane air filter that can be washed, unlike paper filters. Also, should the filter become immersed in water it can still be reused; paper filters, by comparison, are destroyed by water immersion.

The Rincon TXR680 also received new dual front disc brakes for added stopping power. These 180mm disc brakes feature Honda’s self-centering collet-style brake calipers first introduced to the ATV line in 2005. These calipers also feature patented integrated scrapers to eliminate buildup of debris such as mud or ice.

In addition, new valving in the rear suspension make the Rincon more adept than ever when the going gets rough, and other enhancements make the shock action smoother in operation than in the previous unit as well.

 

2017 Honda Rincon 680 ATV Development

Take a good, close look at the 2017 Honda FourTrax Rincon. You’re looking at more than just another ATV; you’re witnessing the forces of evolution at work.

Think back to the WWII-era Army jeep. A pretty rudimentary piece of work, no? Now picture any one of today’s ultra refined and immensely popular Sport Utility Vehicles–complete with all the luxury trimmings. Quite an evolutionary leap forward, right? In like manner, Honda’s groundbreaking new four-wheel-drive Rincon now elevates ATVs to a higher, more sophisticated plane–all the better to meet the needs of today’s more sophisticated buyer.

Thanks to the bright-think minds at Honda, this new SUV of ATVs comes packed chock-full of features and technical innovations that could come only from the industry leader. Of course, innovation is a watchword at Honda. Perhaps the closest parallel to the Rincon’s level of impact came a few years ago when Honda began a revolution in liter-class sporting motorcycle design with the CBR®900RR. This stunningly brilliant machine delivered a wealth of power and exceptional handling-benefits that were multiplied by its remarkably light weight. Now Honda has accomplished the same feat once again, creating a new class of large-displacement, lightweight ATV with the Rincon.

The Rincon sports the largest and most powerful engine among all Honda ATVs–a brawny yet remarkably compact liquid-cooled four-valve 649cc four-stroke overhead-valve powerplant. A completely new design, this powerhouse delivers plenty of muscle, while the OHV layout allows for an engine height that’s markedly shorter than would be possible with an overhead cam configuration. This, in turn, produces a number of advantages: less top-side bulk to make space for a larger fuel tank, increased ground clearance, and a lower center of gravity.

And that’s only the beginning. Careful attention to detail, plus a lot of hard work, has kept the Rincon’s dry weight exactly the same as that of the 499cc FourTrax Foreman Rubicon, a laudable 600 pounds–this from a machine with 30 percent more engine displacement. Better yet, the Rincon boasts the only true automotive-style automatic transmission in the entire ATV world. By routing power through a hydraulic torque converter to a sophisticated transmission featuring three forward gears plus reverse, the Rincon delivers a decidedly sporty feeling every time you dial up the power. Net result: a skillful blend of bold power plus nimble handling for a fun, grin-inducing feel.

In 2001, Honda introduced the ultra-sophisticated Hondamatic transmission in the then-new Rubicon. This continuously variable hydromechanical transmission remains unique in its ability to deliver a satin-smooth flow of power under all riding conditions, from the toughest chores to the most rugged trails. The new Rincon, however, was developed to impart a distinctly different and more pronounced kind of mechanical feel. Instead of the seamless flow of power found in the Rubicon, the Rincon feels much more familiar-and sporty–to buyers who are accustomed to the way an automatic transmission shifts through progressive gear ratios. Thanks to this innovative automatic transmission, Rincon buyers can savor the power-surge of a strong upshift. What’s more, since the Rincon employs a true automotive-style drive train, you’ll never encounter the belt failure and/or slippage that can occur with ATVs from other manufacturers.

The Rincon employs an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) that factors in throttle opening, vehicle speed, engine speed, gear selector position, brake application and engine oil temperature to automatically select the proper gear under the appropriate riding conditions. As an alternative, the rider can actuate the Rincon’s Electric Shift Program™ (ESP) to select the desired gear by using the push buttons mounted on the left handlebar. Its super-sophisticated design delivers simplicity in operation.

More notable Honda firsts come at the rear of the Rincon, including a rear disc brake mounted upstream of the differential. This position decreases the unsprung weight normally associated with an axle-mounted disc, and also provides increased ground clearance. Also in back, you’ll find Honda’s first independent rear suspension with lightweight forged aluminum components. This system provides the Rincon with plenty of sophisticated, well-controlled wheel travel. The elimination of a solid rear axle means the Rincon can provide a more comfortable ride over the toughest terrain compared to conventional ATVs. Meanwhile, special lightweight forged aluminum suspension components keep weight at a minimum for superior handling. Even the brake pedal is aluminum–how’s that for attention to detail?

Besides these design innovations, the Rincon comes fully equipped with just about every high-tech ATV trick in Honda’s extensive inventory: TraxLok™ allows the rider to shift between 2WD and 4WD via a simple thumb-operated switch. While in 4WD, Honda’s unique torque-sensitive limited-slip front differential reduces torque steer to yield a lower steering effort and also provides superior traction compared to convention limited-slip differentials. An Electric Shift Program® (ESP®) enables the rider to manually select gears by simply actuating one of two push-buttons mounted conveniently on the left handlebar. Another switch on the right handlebar allows the rider to easily select either ESP or automatic mode for the transmission. A solid-state CD ignition with electronic advance delivers excellent performance and reliability. Rubber engine mounts and a gear-driven engine counterbalancer effectively control engine vibration for all-day riding comfort. And Honda’s renowned longitudinally mounted engine provides the utmost in drivetrain efficiency.

Roll all of these deluxe features into one ATV, and what do you have? The SUV of ATVs–also known as the 2017 Honda Rincon.

Rincon Styling & Design

The styling of a new Honda doesn’t happen by chance, nor does it happen quickly. In fact, oft times the form and face of a landmark new model begins taking shape long before the engineering team launches into development of new hardware.

In the case of Honda’s innovative Rincon, styling concepts and sketches began taking shape back in 1999, within the top-secret confines of Honda R&D Americas (HRA). There was no Rincon at that time; instead, this internal design study began a life of its own as a series of ideas and sketches aimed at exploring the outer limits of ATV styling and configuration for an undetermined future use.

With this project, the overarching direction consciously departed from the pure utility aspect of FourTrax design. More specifically, the design team’s goal was to create a high-end ATV with a more refined look, featuring sporty styling that would offer a broader appeal to a wider-than-ever range of recreational riders. To that end, the HRA design team blended a number of innovative elements: a higher fender line for an airy, lighter look; strengthening bumps on the fenders that would also lend a modern and muscular appearance; full integration of bumpers, headlights and taillights to create a smoothly flowing line and style.

As one Senior Designer at HRA, explained, “We took the ATV away from a boxy, utility look and found a new balance favoring a distinctly sporty impression. As a parallel, look how Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) have evolved in the automotive marketplace over the past decade from a pure utility vehicle to upscale luxury status. Where you once had loggers and surveyors slogging personnel and equipment to the boonies in utility four-wheel-drives, you now have a couple going to the theater or a family driving to the mountains in comfort with their SUVs. In a similar manner, we wanted to create a new upscale kind of ATV. Today there’s a large contingent of buyers who have created a new, wider spectrum of recreation applications for ATVs, and we wanted to expand that role.”

“Our job here at HRA is to push the limits of design, and our ATV internal design study definitely accomplished that goal–which is to say, not every element that we experimented with made it into the final production-model Rincon. However, many of the styling elements that we worked with in sketches and clay mock-ups fit well within the final design. Look at the Rincon and you’ll see many of the styling breakthroughs we defined in our design study. The body lines of the Rincon are very integrated, free flowing and refined. Also, elements such as the forged aluminum suspension are not only strong and light, but they also lend a very modern, high-tech appearance. These pieces look like components from an Acura NSX sports car, not an ATV.”

“The direction we took with our design study matched up perfectly with the new path the Rincon is taking–a blend of recreation and utility use, with the larger emphasis on recreation. Granted, many people may very well end up using this new breed of sport-utility ATVs in work applications, and it’s capable of fulfilling that role equally well. However, our goal was to offer a whole new look and new options in order to fulfill the emerging demands of a new market segment. ATV usage is evolving at a record pace, and I think we’ve helped Honda establish a new leadership position in this area.”

honda rincon - The Full Wiki

The Honda Rincon is one of a newer style of All-terrain vehicle (ATV) known as Sport/Utility models.

Previously ATV's came in either the more common utility variety that is very popular for use on farms or the sports/racing models. The utility models are larger, have racks for carrying equipment, and full coverage fenders to keep the rider dry. They are usually slower than their sports counterparts but many models offer 4x4 and are capable of covering very rough terrain. Sports models often have no fenders, sit much lower, and are designed for all out speed most commonly associated with tracks and smoother terrains where their top speeds can be utilized. However in the past years ATV'ing has become one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Outdoor Adventures Magazine stated in 2003 that with the increase in fuel prices that ATV's are on the verge of overtaking boating as one of the most popular summer powersports-type outdoor activities, citing that many ATV's can run all day on only a few gallons of fuel.

In recent years with the boom in popularity many have been drawn to ATV's yet wanted faster speeds and more sporty handling than offered by the utility type ATV's, yet at the same time found the lack of storage space, less comfortable riding characteristics, and increased danger of the sports models to be a negative. Manufactures began to realize an untapped market by combining the size, comfort, storage, power, ease of riding, and safety of the utility models with the more agile handling, speed, and some of the sportiness of the sports models and the hybrid Sport/Utility models were born. They usually have many available options and accessories and are well designed for all-day riding comfort.

Rincon Generation 1 (2003-2005)

Honda introduced the Rincon as their new top-of-the-line ATV. The Rincon is the head of their FourTrax lineup and utilizes Honda's largest ATV liquid-cooled four-stroke engine, A first for any ATV is the use of an automotive-style automatic 3 speed transmission which shifts either automatically or can be switched on the fly to sport-shift manual mode that Honda calls ESP. Also utilized were Radial Tires based on popular SUV styles. A center hydraulic disc brake system mounted on the rear output shaft, and the first fully independent rear suspension system ever used by Honda. Also included was Traxlok, enabling riders to switch between 2WD and 4WD modes with a simple thumb-operated switch, the Electric Shift Program (ESP) that allows shifting by simply pushing large up/down buttons using the left thumb, and a torque-sensing front differential that reduces torque steer for lighter steering effort in 4WD.

The 2003 Rincon officially known as the TRX650 quickly became very popular and was dubbed the "Cadillac of ATV's" by ATV Enthusiast Magazine, a nickname that stuck. Part of the Rincon's popularity is due to the all-day comfort provided by the ergonomically designed dual density foam used in the seat, the very light and easy steering requiring less effort to turn and control than virtually any other ATV on the market at the time, the intuitive controls that even first-time operators find simple and easy to understand, and reliability. One magazine noted that the new automotive style automatic transmission eliminated the belts used by every other manufacture allowing the Rincon to negotiate deeper water where the belts on most ATVs would become wet and begin slipping. This particular feature has made it very popular with the 20-Something's who use them for driving through sometimes surprisingly deep mud and water with only very minor modifications, though not endorsed by Honda themselves.

Available beginning in 2004 Honda added the GPScape model officially known as the TRX650GPS as an option which adds a built-in GPS unit contained within the instrument cluster assembly. The GPS featured storage for up to 100 waypoints, digital compass function indicating travel direction and an automatic compensating clock.

2003-2005 General Specifications

Engine Type: 649cc liquid-cooled OHV semi-dry-sump longitudinally mounted single-cylinder four-stroke Bore and Stroke: 100.0mm x 82.6mm Carburetion: 37mm CV Ignition: CD with electronic advance Starter: Electric with auxiliary recoil Transmission: Automatic with hydraulic torque converter, three forward gears, reverse, and electronic controls Driveline: Direct front and rear drive-shafts with torque-sensitive front differential Suspension Front: Independent double-wishbone; 6.9 inches travel Suspension Rear: Independent double-wishbone; 8.0 inches travel Brakes Front: Triple-sealed hydraulic drum Brakes Rear: Single hydraulic disc Tires Front: 25 x 8-12 radial Tires Rear: 25 x 10-12 radial Overall Length: 83.7 inches Overall Width: 46.1 inches Overall Height: 47.5 inches Seat Height: 34.5 inches Ground Clearance: 10.0 inches Wheelbase: 50.8 inches Turning Radius: 10.8 feet Dry Weight: 600 pounds Fuel Capacity: 4.5 gallons, including 1.0-gallon reserve

Available Colors: Red, Olive, Black, Yellow

Rincon Generation 2 (2006-Current)

The Rincon continues as Hondas top-of-the line ATV but starting in 2006 Honda gave the FourTrax Rincon an update in response to customer request. The Rincon 650 became known as the Rincon 680i when the engine size enlarged from 649cc to 675cc. Officially known as the TRX680F and TRX680GPS. Along with the larger engine Electronic Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) was introduced. New colors including NaturalGear Camouflage was added, developed by a firm in Arkansas many enthusiast consider the patterns one of the most realistic available blending easily into backgrounds, particularly found in many parts of the southern United States.

This increased engine size came via a larger bore in the single-cylinder power plant, growing from 100mm to 102mm. Also, the cylinder is now of cast-sleeve design, which permits cylinder boring to an oversize of plus 0.25mm should the need ever occur. An all-new camshaft profile was utilized for increased power, a new exhaust system ensures a quiet ride, a rollover sensor now kills the engine in the event the Rincon is partially or fully overturned. The a PGM-FI system uses a 40mm throttle body replacing the carburetor used in previous Rincons. The changes resulted in an eight percent increase in torque and at a higher RPM peak, from 4500 rpm to 5000 rpm. Peak horsepower remained 6000 RPM. The overall peak power jumped approximately seven percent compared to the 2005 Rincon. A change that yielded a higher top speed than before, though electronically limited on US models to approximately 65 MPH many owners choose to have this safely feature disabled. Honda added more durable crankshaft bearings and beefed-up the transmissions gears to ensure durability and longer life while better utilizing the new engines additional power. According to Honda the PGM-FI system boasts a high-tech 12-hole split-pattern fuel injector to maximize fuel distribution to both intake valves. This is reputed to be the same injector used in Honda's popular SUV making a replacement readily available at many auto parts stores. A new high pressure fuel pump with a built-in reservoir feeds the system. Fuel injection allows the ECU to provide many benefits over previous, carbureted models that were gravity feed from the tank. The ECU can now adjust to variables and changing riding conditions in a seamless and fully automatic fashion. In addition to increased power output, some other benefits included improved fuel mileage, elimination of the manual choke and much-easier cold starting, automatic compensation at different altitudes, automatic temperature compensation, a shorter engine warm-up period, and smoother idle. An idle air control valve (IACV) establishes a basic idle setting of 1400 rpm, plus or minus 50 rpm. The automotive style automatic transmission was also updated to improve overall drivability and the torque converter was tweaked to reduce warm-up to accommodate start-and-go during extreme cold-weather riding. The manual fuel shut-off petcock was removed, with the PGM-FI an automotive style fuel gauge was added. When the fuel level reaches the E symbol a low-fuel warning light begins to flash letting the rider know that they have about 1.1 gallons of fuel remaining, or enough for approximately 28 miles of reserve range. Battery capacity was increased from 14AH to 18AH. The Rincon still has a manual recoil (rope) starter with the pull handle hidden behind a snap-off panel on the right side and incorporates an automatic internal decompression system for easier starting. Also added was a newer style reusable urethane air filter that can be washed and re-used. Mechanical features for 2006 were dual front disc brakes. Something many owners had asked for in comparison to the original Rincon's single drum brake on the front output shaft. New valving in the rear suspension makes the Rincon more even more nimble than the original. Other changes made the shock action smoother in operation than in the previous unit as well.

2006-2008 General Specifications

Engine Type: 675cc liquid-cooled OHV semi-dry-sump longitudinally mounted single-cylinder four-stroke Bore and Stroke: 102.0mm x 82.6mm Fuel System: Electronic fuel injection (PGM-FI) with Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) idle control Ignition: Full-transistorized type with electronic advance Starter: Electric Starting, with Manual backup Transmission: Automatic with hydraulic torque converter, three forward gears, reverse and electronic controls Driveline: Direct front and rear drive shafts with torque-sensitive front differential Suspension Front: Independent double-wishbone; 6.9 inches travel Suspension Rear: Independent double-wishbone; 8.0 inches travel Brakes Front: Dual hydraulic 180mm disc Brakes Rear: Single hydraulic disc Tires Front: 25 x 8-12 radial Tires Rear: 25 x 10-12 radial Wheels: Aluminum Alloy Overall Length: 83.2 inches Overall Width: 46.8 inches Overall Height: 47.5 inches Seat Height: 34.5 inches Ground Clearance: 10.0 inches Wheelbase: 50.8 inches Dry Weight: 604 pounds Fuel Capacity: 4.5 gallons, including 1.08-gallon reserve

Анонс квадроцикла Honda FourTrax Rincon 2015

Компания обновила свой главный квадроцикл.

На 2015 модельный Honda обновили свой флагман в сегменте квадроциклов. Выглядит Honda Rincon 2015 практические так же, как его предшественник, но если копнуть глубже, становится понятно, насколько тщательно производитель поработал над новой моделью.

Начнём с того, что в 2015 модельном году 675-кубовый двигатель Rincon получил новую головку цилиндра. По словам производителя, головка цилиндра с двумя запальными свечами обеспечивает быстрое, чистое и эффективное горение. Также Honda добавили датчик содержания кислорода и каталитический дожигатель выхлопных газов, так что Rincon будет производить меньше вредных выбросов.

«Всё это гарантирует отличную топливную экономичность», — пишет производитель в пресс-релизе.

На Honda Rincon 2015 года была установлена новая головка цилиндра, датчик кислорода и каталитический дожигатель выхлопных газов.

Среди других изменений — новый статор с магнитами из неодима для обеспечения дополнительного электропитания, что особенно важно, если водитель будет использовать множество аксессуаров. Новые шины Maxxis созданы с расчётом на превосходное сцепление с землёй и долгий срок службы. Наконец, Rincon теперь доступен в новой фирменной камуфляжной расцветке Honda Phantom Camo, а также в красном и зелёном цвете.

Камуфляжная расцветка Honda Phantom Camo теперь доступна и для Honda Rincon 2015.

За вычетом этих изменений Rincon щеголяет всё теми же знакомыми комплектующими. Трёхступенчатая автоматическая коробка передач подразумевает отсутствие соскальзывающего приводного ремня или изнашиваемого сцепления. Мощь квадроцикла можно контролировать с помощью электронной системы переключения скоростей от Honda, которая позволяет повышать или понижать передачи нажатием кнопки на руле.

Новые шины Maxxis дополняют комплектацию Rincon 2015.

Самый большой двигатель в линейке квадроциклов Honda, установленный на этой модели, представляет собой 675-кубовый одноцилиндровый мотор с полусухим картером. Компактная и лёгкая конструкция от Foreman с верхним расположением клапана и системой смазки с полусухим картером позволила создать такой компактный двигатель. По словам производителя, результатом этого стали два важных преимущества: удалось занизить центр тяжести мотора и увеличить дорожный просвет.

Сзади установлена уже знакомая независимая задняя подвеска Honda.

Независимая задняя подвеска Rincon контролирует 203 миллиметра вертикального хода, в то время как передняя подвеска «ходит» на 175 миллиметров.

Спецификация Honda Pioneer 500 2015

Испытания ATV нового поколения Honda Rincon 650 на родных просторах. / Публикации о Honda

ATV Honda Ricon 650

Популярность ATV HONDA неуклонно растет в последнее время. Это происходит не только благодаря общепризнанной надежности и безупречной репутации ATV HONDA, а ,в первую очередь, по причине развития дополнительных полезных возможностей ATV и значительного расширения сферы применения этих машин. Так, например, наряду с сугубо утилитарными возможностями ATV стали востребованы и другие качества, призванные доставить удовольствие от драйва каждому любителю ATV, прокатиться с ветерком и просто активно провести время ATV. Появилась даже новая неофициальная классификация ATV.

Водонепроницаемая многофункциональная электронная приборная панель ATV Honda Ricon 650 не занимает много места и создает впечатление прочного узла. На ней легко читается информация о скорости движения ATV Honda Ricon 650, о режиме работы трансмиссии, о положении селектора включения передач, о полном и суточном пробеге. На приборную панель также выведен счетчик моточасов и текущее время, что по нашему мнению, не просто удобно, а здорово. Не каждый ATV может похвастаться таким продвинутым информационным центром.

Подножки водителя ATV Honda Ricon 650 традиционны для всех утилитарных ATV Хонда. Их расположение продумано с точки зрения эргономики и безопасности. Чувство защищенности ног водителя, как в банковском сейфе, присутствует в ATV Honda Ricon постоянно.

Комфорт и удобство чувствуется во всем. Даже герметичный вместительный "бардачок" емкостью целых 4 литра расположен таким образом, что водитель может им легко пользоваться. Уже разместившись на ATV Honda Ricon 650 наш эксперт быстро достает из "бардачка" перчатки Spyke. Приятно и то, что ATV Honda Ricon 650 снабжен электрической розеткой 12 Вольт. Розетка удобно расположена в районе рулевой колонки. Пожалуй, в поездки зимой по бездорожью можно будет взять с собой и кофеварку.

Желание провести максимально объективный анализ возможностей ATV Honda Ricon 650 в "активных" режимах привело нас на соответствующую трассу. Для такого теста прекрасно подходит стадион Московского городского авто-мото клуба в Измайлово. Здесь тренируются юные мотокроссмены и даже проводятся соревнования. На трассе есть крутые подъемы, два больших трамплина и множество поворотов и скоростных виражей. После сентябрьских дождей она как никогда подходит для динамичных прохватов на высокой скорости и реализации спортивных возможностей ATV.

Итак, поворачиваем ключ зажигания, одно нажатие кнопки электростартера и пространство наполняется сочным баритоном мощного четырехтактного двигателя ATV Honda Ricon 650. Выпускная система ATV Honda Ricon 650 с трубами из нержавеющей стали прекрасно справляется со своей задачей. Звук выхлопа ATV Honda Ricon 650 тихий и при этом обладает приятным тембром. Пока мотор ATV Honda Ricon 650 прогревается представитель Хонда показывает нам спрятанную под боковой облицовкой рукоятку альтернативного троссового стартера. Производитель ответственно заявляет, что благодаря новой системе автоматической декомпрессии завести двигатель троссовым стартером сможет даже ребенок. По нашему мнению альтернатива электростартеру понравится бережливым педантичным любителям техники, тем, кто перед пуском двигателя в сильный мороз решит, что нелишне будет сначала прокрутить двигатель вручную. Конечно, в современных условиях, когда в двигателе Honda стенки цилиндра покрыты уникальным кремниево-карбидным покрытием ( Nikasil ) такая привычка теряет свою актуальность.

Переключатель системы быстрого включения/ отключения полного привода TraxLock на правой рукоятке ATV Honda Ricon 650 стоит в положении 4WD (полный привод), переводим рукоятку переключения передач ATV Honda Ricon 650 в режим D (Драйв). ATV Honda Ricon 650 в полной готовности к старту. Надо сказать, нам не терпится ощутить работу особенной гидродинамической трансмиссии ATV Honda Ricon 650. В автоматической коробке передач ATV Honda Ricon 650 применяется хорошо проверенная на автомобилях конструкция с гидротрансформатором и электронным контролем со стороны главного процессора автоматического выбора одной из трех передач вперед и реверса. Компьютер учитывает давление масла в системе, обороты двигателя, передачу, режим работы тормозной системы и температуру масла в двигателе. При этом реализована возможность полноценного торможения двигателем, что невозможно на ATV оснащенных трансмиссиями с клиноременным вариатором. При этом мудрые Японские инженеры снабдили ATV Honda Ricon 650 системой безопасности. Когда автомат находится в положении "Драйв" и двигатель работает на холостых оборотах, ATV Honda Ricon 650 стоит на месте. Стоит прибавить газ и только тогда ATV трогается. Мудрое техническое решение достойно уважения.

Итак, вперед. Плавно добавляем газ. Двигатель бодро откликается на нажатие клавиши. Энергичный разгон по своей динамике весьма радует.

Когда в первый раз ощущаешь, что все четыре колеса уже в воздухе, на какой-то момент захватывает дыхание. ATV Honda Ricon 650 прыгает с трамплина. Немного страшновато. Но первое же приземление расставляет все точки над "И". Полный тотальный контроль. Фантастика. Продольное расположение двигателя и его конструкция позволила Японцам разместить массы ATV Honda Ricon 650 симметрично между ведущими осями, что, с одной стороны, повысило эффективность и надежность карданных приводов, и, с другой стороны, обеспечило идеальную развесовку ATV Honda Ricon 650. Никакого стремления ATV Honda Ricon 650 к "клеванию носом" в полете.

Уникальные многорычажные подвески ATV Honda Ricon 650, в конструкции которых использованы легкие и прочные кованные рычаги из аллюминиевого сплава, имеют большой ход, 203 миллиметра, они потрясающе энергоемки и обеспечивают вездеходу непревзойденную устойчивость и управляемость. Мы много раз намеренно бросали ATV Honda Ricon 650 в занос и всегда ощущали четкую обратную связь с поведением ATV Honda Ricon 650. Ни разу ни одно колесо не вывесилось в воздух.
