I'm looking for a 680 Rincon.......had a 05 Rubicon a few years ago...great bike just not enough speed/power for me....sold it bought a Rhino 700....ended up being to big for where i ride....sold it and now i'm looking for a fuel injected rincon......

is this the best trail bike for me or would i be better off with a 420 rancher? I simply want it for trail riding....very little work if any...........

thanks for your input.......

imo and most other peoples, the rincon is the BEST trail bike ever made. rides great, corners awsome, fully auto with no belt to change, in and out 4x4, and best of all its a honda. on the down side, it does not have the low end torque that the rancher has, but i spin 27" mud tires all day and do mostly mud riding so its not that bad, and with the new found gear reductions avalble it is one of the best bikes i have ever owned. for a pure trail machine 100% stock the rincon is unbeatable. with a set of 25"/26" all terrain tires it makes a **** of an "All Around" machine that you will be very happy with.

The tires will be my next upgrade. I just put on a HMF pipe and K&N filter on my Rincon.

I have an 08 Rincon with the power commander chip and hmf pipe and kenda executioner tires and i wouldn't trade it for anything for the ride and handling.... I broke my pelvis about 2 years ago and the doctors told me i can't ride anything that i have to stradle anymore but i ride that rincon everywher with no troubles but when i still had my 97 honda foreman 400 it always bothered me when it even started to get a little bit rough.. I also have an '09 420 irs rancher and it doesn't even compare in ride to my rincon but in the water the 420 will water wheelie to no end compared to the rincon..

I have rode bikes and atv's for years but when I put 25" ITP XL on mine I coulnt get the front end up like I could with the factory. Do you have any power mod's ?

Hey Rubicon05, Deputydog here. I bought a new 08 Rincon last year. This is the best I've ever owned. I have over the years tried other makes, but I have made a full circle and came back to Honda. I absolutly love my 680. You won't be sorry IMOP. Good luck. Deputydog
