It’s that time of the year once again, time for the off-road manufacturers to start teasing us with their newest models for the season. As is often the case, the first hints of new iron take the shape of freshened “carry-over” models often touting new colors, graphics and perhaps a few feature upgrades. Such is the case with Honda and their first look at their 2017 ATV models. Today Honda released details on their 2017 TRX420 Rancher along with their big bore 680 Rincon. Both will tout new color options for the forthcoming year along with a smattering of optional features. Both are expected to arrive in dealerships in June. Here’s the official word from Honda:

In its first announcement of the 2017 powersports model year, Honda Canada today announced a number of ATV products, including the highly popular TRX420 Rancher lineup and the large-displacement 680cc Rincon. For 2017 Honda will offer some new colour options for these models.

“ATVs remain a very important category for us, we’re pleased to kick off the 2017 powersports model year with these models”, said James Marchand, Assistant Vice President, Motorcycle, ATV & Power Equipment at Honda Canada. “We will continue to provide our customers with the quality and reliability they have come to expect from their Honda ATV.”

CAMO TRX420 Rancher: With incredible versatility and value, the Rancher has been a strong performer since its introduction in 2000, helping it to become one of Honda’s best-selling ATVs. This current version is the best ever, enabling customers to choose between Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) or swingarm, Automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) or standard gearbox, Electric Power Steering (EPS) and standard, and 4×4 or two-wheel drive. No matter what the options, TRX420 Ranchers are renowned for their durability, and they’re equally capable at the jobsite as they are on the trail. For 2017, Honda Canada will offer a new black version for the 4×4 Automatic IRS DCT EPS model.

Since its introduction, this top-of-the-line model has been an ATV industry trailblazer, with fully Independent Rear Suspension (IRS), radial tires and an automotive-style, beltless three-speed automatic transmission that can also be shifted manually. For 2017, the Rincon is available in red as well as a new Black color option.
