2012 Honda TRX400X Review

This one was born ready.

The TRX400X enjoys a well-deserved reputation for bringing aggressive styling and high performance to the ranks of sport ATVs. The bulletproof 397cc RFVC (Radial Four-Valve Combustion Chamber) engine has earned its place as one of the all-time great engines by offering both power and durability in spades. Yet thoughtful amenities such as a five-speed transmission plus Reverse gear and electric starting bolster the fun part of the equation as well. All in all, the TRX400X delivers all the goods for those in search of a performance-packed ATV that also includes Honda’s legendary excellence of design.

Relentless. Tireless. Tenacious. There are plenty of things you can say about the Honda TRX400X, but to fully understand it, you have to experience it. That’s because underneath the race-style bodywork lies everything the warrior ATV rider needs, starting with the SOHC, 397cc, air-cooled, dry-sump RFVD engine. Then there’s the triple-disc brakes. Baja-ready Pro-Link® suspension with long travel. Standard reverse and all the reliability you’d expect from a Honda. We’ve even given it all-new graphics for an even more aggressive look.

So if you’re looking for high-performance ATV that delivers the power, comfort and dependability you need to tackle any terrain all day long, look no further than the Honda TRX400X.
