I haven't heard of any problems with them. I don't follow Honda closely, but I'm sure it's a quality product if that's what you want.

I owned a Rincon a few years back. Haven't heard of any real problems with them, other than the one real obvious problem. No power! Seriously, the Rincon 680 is on par with other manufacturers 400 to 450cc machines. As long as you're fine with that, a Rincon would be a good handling, good riding, reliable machine.

Do you think that is the power plant or the transmission/clutching? That's terrible! I wonder if they are still running a straight axle in the rear? A lot of farmers liked that because of the advantage when hooked to heavy impliments.

I think it is mainly the engine. The transmission is reasonable at moving the power along, although the gearing and shift points seem all wrong to me. It feels like it needs about two more gears lower than first gear (no low range on the Rincon). And my Rincon always felt like it was in too tall of a gear, unless I shifted the transmission with the electronic shifter. Even then, if I made the engine rev more it just made more noise and vibrated more, it didn't seem to make any more power.

Rincon's have four wheel independent suspension, with one of the best valved sets of shocks in the industry. The shocks on my Rincon had no adjustment capability at all, but still worked very well. Handling was also very good. Just NOOOOO power.

I would think that a Can Am Outlander 650 or 800, a Yamaha Grizzly 700, and a Suzuki King Quad 750 would all be good first choices. Next I would rank the Polaris Sportsman 600, 700, or 850, the Rincon, and the Brute Force 650 or 750.

My brother in law has 2 Rincons, all I can say is they are not Hondas finest effort. and if you are an advanced rider you will be disapointed.

While it is not fast, my Rincon has over 9000 miles on it and has been the single most reliable tool/toy I have ever owned. Other than crash damage I've done a water pump, camchain tensioner and one set of ball joints. The rincons are the best handling of the big bore machines and even though it is under powered, I NEVER get left in the back of the pack anywhere on the tight and rough New England trails. If I rode on flat and smooth trails more often I would need more power. I would stay away from Brute Farses. I have several friends who own them and most have lost a motor. The Grizzly will be my next machine. Two of the hardest riders I know have them with over 10k miles and not enough problems to worry about.

Agree with everything you said, but just wanted to add something to this one part. ... If you rode on extremely steep trails at 10,000+ feet elevation you would need more power as well. One time with my Rincon I was on a very very steep trail at over 10,000 ft, and my Rincon slowly slowed to a complete stop, even with me giving it absolutely full throttle. It didn't have enough power to turn the tires, and just stopped. NOT a good thing when you are on a hill so steep you are leaned way over the front rack to keep the front end down. It was the best e-ticket ride I've ever had getting that ATV back off of that hill.
