Honda 2021 FourTrax Recon Quad Bike Review Specs

Honda 2021 FourTrax Recon Quad Bike

The wise artisan understands that you must use the right tool for the right task. When it comes to off-roading, the Honda FourTrax Recon is a vehicle you’ll learn to rely on: Even though it isn’t the largest ATV we have, it is one of the most useful. It’s easy to operate and won’t wear you out like some bigger ATVs. As a bonus, it won’t put a dent in your pocketbook. It has a 250-class engine that provides torque and power at lower rpms. The Recon ES variant has Honda’s Electric Change Program, allowing riders to shift gears with their feet (ESP). Aside from all of that, this year’s Recon is even better than last year’s model because of all of the updated features and new paint jobs.

While the Recon’s design is streamlined from top to bottom, its semi-dry-sump and overhead valves generate an engine having a lower center of gravity and greater ground clearance, all of which contribute to improved handling.


In our ATV and side-by-side engines, we channel the power flow straight to the wheels without any superfluous right-angle diversions, decreasing powertrain friction and sending more oomph to the ground.


It should be as simple as this to shift gears. By just pressing one of two handlebar-mounted buttons, the ESP system (standard on ES models only) makes upshifting and downshifting a breeze. When cycling in mud or snow-covered boots, ESP is a big help.

Getting going is as simple as turning a key or pressing a button, even in subzero temperatures. Having a backup recoil starting mechanism gives you more peace of mind.

The Recon’s reverse lever is located on the left handlebar alongside the parking brake, making it simple to operate.


Clean, efficient, proven, and low maintenance are just a few adjectives that describe this product. When it comes to machines like these and riders that put in many kilometers, shaft drive is the way to go. On the trail, lubrication and adjustment are never an issue. A bonus is that it helps keep the dirt off your ATV.


A unique floorboard design on the Recon and the Recon ES helps riders keep muck and debris off their feet while still allowing them to hold the footrests.

The LED taillight and brakelight provide long-lasting illumination on the Recon. The 33- and 66-pound payload limits are provided by the steel cargo racks mounted to the front and back of the vehicle, respectively.
