2020 Honda FourTrax Recon ES Big Utility in a Right-Sized Package Lean, mean, and engineered to last, the Honda FourTrax Recon is one of the hardest-working ATVs out there. It features a specially designed 250-class engine that delivers plenty of low-rpm torque and power. And it's available in two versions: one featuring our conventional foot-shift ATV transmission, or the Recon ES model offering Honda Electric Shift Program (ESP). It Honda quality and performance, distilled into an exceptionally versatile package. Features may include: SEMI-DRY-SUMP ENGINE DESIGN Compact and lighter-weight, the Recon's semi-dry-sump and overhead valve designs create an engine that's not only shorter from top to bottom, but one that enhances handling by lowering the center of gravity while also allowing for better ground clearance. LONGITUDINAL ENGINE LAYOUT By orienting the crankshaft front to back in the chassis in our ATV and side-by-side engines, we route the flow of power straight to the wheels without any unnecessary right-angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more grunt to the ground. ELECTRIC SHIFT PROGRAM (ESP) Shifting between gears should always be this easy. With Honda's available unique ESP system (ES models only), upshifting and downshifting is as simple and fast as pushing one of two handlebar-mounted buttons. ESP is also a bonus when riding in heavy or mud/snow-covered boots. EFFORTLESS ELECTRIC STARTING When it comes to starting: Turn a key, push a button, and you re off, even in cold weather. A backup recoil starting system provides added confidence. SHAFT DRIVE Clean, efficient, proven, low-maintenance. Shaft drive is the perfect choice for a machine like this, and for riders who pile on the miles. You never have to worry about lubrication or adjustment out on the trail. And an added plus: it helps keep your ATV cleaner, too. UNIQUELY DESIGNED FLOORBOARDS Both the Recon and Recon ES have uniquely designed floorboards, which allow the rider feet to grip the footrests while helping keep mud and debris away. LED TAILLIGHT AND BRAKELIGHT The Recon has a LED taillight and brakelight for durable, long-lasting lighting. STEEL CARGO RACKS Front and rear steel cargo racks allow payloads of 33 and 66 pounds, respectively.
