Honda: Return of Small-Displacement ATV Models

Go Small or Go Home

In a new-model announcement today, American Honda confirmed that its three smallest ATV models will return for the 2024 model year, and that they’ll be offered in vibrant new colors. The common ingredient for the three models—the FourTrax Recon multipurpose ATV, as well as the TRX250X and TRX90X sport ATVs—is that they’re small but capable, a combination that has made them popular with customers for many years.

A pioneer in the ATV category, Honda continues to offer models that deliver years of fun, and that’s certainly the case with this trio. The two TRX sport models have welcomed legions of enthusiasts to the off-road world, while the FourTrax Recon rec/utility model (available in two trim levels) mixes in the capability for getting work done. All three are designed and produced in the U.S., and they boast Honda’s legendary durability and reliability, proving that performance and aptitude are possible without breaking the bank or occupying a large footprint.

FourTrax Recon

Lightweight but heavy-duty, the FourTrax Recon is the smallest offering in Honda’s multipurpose ATV lineup. From hauling heavy loads around the farm, to tackling hills and obstacles on the trail, the 229cc engine is remarkably capable and delivers impressive torque, and it’s paired with a compact chassis that is well-suited for accessing tight areas. An available Electric Shift Program transmission (ESP) provides push-button shifting, while the standard version uses a traditional foot-shift gearbox. Renowned for its reliability and versatility, the Recon is always ready for the task at hand.

Purpose-built for enjoying the great outdoors, Honda’s TRX250X is an ideal option for new and experienced riders alike, thanks to its smooth power and superb ride quality. Whether the goal is climbing hills, negotiating technical terrain, or just enjoying a relaxing double-track cruise, the 229cc engine delivers manageable power throughout the rev range. Meanwhile, Honda’s exclusive SportClutch eliminates the concern of stalling, while retaining the experience of operating a manual clutch. The TRX250X boasts a combination of comfortable, long-travel suspension and a balanced, lightweight chassis, translating to a confidence-inspiring ride and nimble-yet-predictable handling on the trail.

24 Honda TRX90X


Everyone remembers the joy and excitement of their first ride, and for many off-road enthusiasts, that memory was delivered by a TRX90X—the approachable sport ATV that’s designed to help new enthusiasts build confidence and master the fundamentals of off-road riding. A semiautomatic transmission allows riders to learn the skill of shifting without the complication of operating a clutch, and a throttle limiter enables power regulation depending on the phase of the learning process. Plus, the TRX90X boasts legendary Honda build quality, reliability and ease of maintenance, giving youngsters and their families peace of mind as they enjoy the outdoors.
