Honda has done an admirable job of shoring up the Rincon with a displacement kick and silky smooth EFI for the 2006 model year. You can read about the new Rincon in round 2 of All-Terrain Vehicle’s Big Bore Shootout in the June edition.
Our test riders were highly impressed with the Rincon’s improvement. The question readers are asking is whether Honda will bring an updated IRS based 500 Rubicon to the party soon.
With two completely separate motor and tranny platforms used in the Rincon and the Rubicon, both undisputed as techno-kings in terms of transmission design, we wonder if Honda might rethink its line-up and bring an IRS Rincon based 500cc Rubicon replacement to the market.
