A powerful 675cc engine, independent rear
suspension, electronic fuel injection,
Hondamatic automatic transmission, four-wheel
disc brakes and an integrated GPScape navigation
system all work together to place the FourTrax
Rincon far and away above all competitors.
New for 2009
- New Blue color joins Red, Olive and Natural
Gear™ Camouflage on the TRX680FA.
- Exclusive Natural Gear Camouflage color
scheme offers a pattern that's soft, open and
shadow-free for superior camouflage performance
in a wide variety of conditions.
liquid-cooled four-stroke ATV features a
single-cylinder, fuel-injected 675cc OHV engine
that provides ample torque and dependable power.
- Honda's automotive-style automatic ATV
transmission draws power through a hydraulic
torque converter to drive three forward gears
- The FourTrax Rincon features
Honda's fully independent ATV rear suspension
for comfortable cruising over the toughest
- Extensive weight-saving measures
include the use of aluminum for the following
components: forged front upper control arms,
rear upper and lower control arms, rear
knuckles, front and rear wheels.
- Integrated GPScape® (see Technology
- High-capacity liquid cooling
provides consistent engine operating temperature
in extreme conditions for maximum power output
and long engine life.
- Camshaft is located
adjacent to the cylinder head, reducing engine
height. Together with the semi-dry sump, engine
height is further reduced for a low center of
gravity and excellent handling.
design Longitudinally Mounted Engine (see
- Four-valve cylinder
head with two short pushrods provides a broad powerband for optimum performance and engine
- Programmed Fuel Injection
(PGM-FI) (see Technology Section)
- Engine design
produces low emissions and meets California Air
Resources Board (CARB) off-road emissions
- Stainless steel exhaust system
provides superior corrosion resistance and
minimizes noise levels.
semi-dry-sump oiling system locates the oil tank
inside the engine cases, lowering engine height
and allowing optimum engine placement for
excellent ground clearance and superb handling.
- Standard high-flow oil cooler ensures optimal
engine lubrication under difficult operating
- TraxLok® selectable 2WD/4WD
system (see Technology Section)
- Torque-Sensitive Front Differential (see
- The rear driveshaft
joins the rear final-drive gearcase at a 77°
angle, eliminating the weight and complexity of
an additional shaft and joints. The design also
contributes to the Rincon's considerable 8.0
inches of rear wheel travel.
Hondamatic Automatic Transmission
- The automotive-style Honda automatic
transmission features a hydraulic torque
converter, three hydraulic clutches and an
Electronic Control Module Unit (ECM) to
automatically select one of three forward gears
and one reverse gear. The ECM monitors throttle
opening, vehicle speed, engine rpm, gear
selector position, brake application and engine
- The Honda automatic
transmission shifts electronically - eliminating
unsightly and trouble-prone vacuum lines - and
features engine braking, unlike conventional
- Features a filtration
system to protect against external
contamination. The compact and maintenance-free
design means there are no belts to wear out and
replace. Using multi-filtered engine oil as
hydraulic fluid, the design also simplifies
maintenance and ensures an adequate oil supply
in all operating conditions.
- Electric Shift
Program (ESP™) (see Technology Section)
handlebar-mounted control switches the automatic
transmission between ESP mode and automatic
- A convenient column-style shift
lever permits the rider to easily select Drive,
Neutral or Reverse.
- A rugged steel perimeter frame and
four-wheel independent suspension provide an
exceptional 10.0 inches of ground clearance.
- Independent double-wishbone front suspension
uses premium shock absorbers to provide 6.9
inches of suspension travel for a plush,
- Honda's independent rear
suspension uses a double-wishbone design and
features forged-aluminum knuckles and
upper/lower A-arms to substantially reduce unsprung weight. The rear knuckle pivots use
lightweight metal bushings in place of
conventional ball joints and radius arms,
eliminating geometry variations as the rear
suspension travels through its stroke. This
simple design maintains rear wheel alignment and
further reduces unsprung weight, contributing to
responsive overall handling.
single-tube gas-charged rear shocks and an
anti-sway bar provide plush, well-controlled
damping throughout the Rincon's exceptional 8.0
inches of wheel travel.
- Dual front disc
brake calipers feature a patented built-in
scraper system that removes mud and snow from
inside the front wheel. This helps prevent the
buildup of debris between caliper and rim,
ensuring consistent braking performance.
rear, center hydraulic disc brake and
self-adjusting mechanical rear parking brake are
mounted on the rear driveshaft, further reducing unsprung weight and contributing to the Rincon's
considerable ground clearance.
- Multi-function LCD digital instrumentation
is compact, tough and waterproof, featuring
large readouts for gear-selector position,
speedometer, odometer, resettable tripmeter and
hourmeter/clock. Instrument housing includes
LEDs for Drive, Neutral, Reverse, temperature
warning and FI warning indicator. A fuel gauge
located within the instrument housing comes as
- Waterproof accessory
socket provides 12-volt, 10-amp power with a
built-in temperature- type fuse.
padded seat uses dual-density foam to provide
all-day riding comfort.

- Side-opening compartment has 4
liters of storage capacity and can be opened
when the rider is seated.
