RINCON 680 4X4
Honda’s top-of-the-line 4x4 ATV, the
Rincon 680, gets some significant updates
for 2015, including a new dual-plug
cylinder head, oxygen sensor and catalytic
converter. The updates to the 675cc, fuel-injected, four-valve push-rod engine increase
fuel economy and reduce emissions. A
higher-output stator provides more power
for accessories, and new Maxxis radial
tires replace the Dunlop radials for increased
traction and longer wear. The Rincon’s
automotive-style, three-speed fully automatic
transmission can also be shifted manually, and it has no
belts to burn or wear. We expected Honda to offer power
steering and a front differential-lock mode on the Rincon, but
it didn’t happen. The 2015 Rincon is available in red, olive
and Honda’s exclusive Phantom Camo. Prices haven’t been
Honda’s 2015 Rincon 680 4x4 gets a new dual plug cylinder
head for more fuel range and numerous other improvements.
Honda hasn’t unveiled any other 2015 ATV news, either, so we’re
looking forward to some exciting news on new models for 2015.
SUZUKI UNVEILS 2015 KINGQUAD 750,
KINGQUAD 400 AND Z90
The 2015 Suzuki KingQuad 750AXi is equipped with a
newly designed twin-spark-plug cylinder head for improved
combustion and power compared to previous single-plug
designs. The ATV also uses new multi-hole fuel injectors for
finer injection spray, as well as projection-type spark plugs for
better cold-engine starting. The engine’s intake and exhaust
cam profiles are modified for improved power, and the exhaust
system includes a catalytic converter for cleaner emissions.
With these revisions, the 750AXi’s engine delivers smoother
operation throughout the rev range, plus quicker response
and stronger mid-to-high rpm response. Fuel consumption is
improved by 10 percent.
The KingQuad 750AXi is available with electric power
steering in red and green versions at a suggested retail price
of $9499, and in True Timber XD3 Camo for $9999. It’s also
available without power steering at a suggested retail price of
$8899 (Red, Green) and $9299 (True Timber XD3 Camo).
The 2015 Suzuki KingQuad 400ASi and FSi engine-control
units feature Slip-Control Logic technology for improved
traction and grip. The 400cc KingQuads also use highly
efficient iridium spark plugs for better combustion and cleaner
emissions. The inner structure of the muffler is redesigned
for stronger low-to-mid rpm response. Along with cleaner
emissions, these changes help the KingQuad 400cc ATVs deliver
better fuel consumption— 15 percent for the ASi and 17 percent
for the FSi.
The KingQuad 400ASi uses Suzuki’s QuadMatic full-automatic
continuously variable transmission and is available in red and
in green bodywork for a suggested retail price of $6499, and
in a True Timber XD3 Camo version at a retail price of $6899.
The KingQuad 400FSi features a five-speed transmission with
semi-automatic clutch, and it’s also available in red and in green
bodywork for a suggested retail price of $6499, and in a True
Timber XD3 Camo version at a retail price of $6899.
