    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: price
    reliabilty
    manuverability
    speed
    racks
    noise
    fuel efficiency
    Cons: center of gravity
    top speed
    acceleration
    semi-auto shifting
    brakes

    Summary: I bought this ATV used for $800. It works pretty well. It will do 50 mph on the road with a 130 pound rider, however, that speed is very dependant on terrain, and wind. it is fast enough on the trails though. I bought it for use on trails near my house. ... read more

    Pros: Great styling, handling
    Cons: Poor low end acceleration

    Summary: The model I am actually going to write this on is the 2005 Honda 250 Recon ES (no 4x4). I purchased this quad as a starter - I hadn't rode quads for years since I had an 80 and didn't want to get too crazy, just wanted to having something to play around ... read more

    Pros: Comfort, price
    Cons: Power, ride

    Summary: I bought a Honda because like everyone else I've been brain washed through clever advertising campaigns to think that Honda(or any Japanese product for that matter) is the best. I wanted an ATV with more power and options but the prices were ungodly ... read more

    Pros: reliability, GREAT gas mileage, tons of fun, can run with SOME of the big dogs
    Cons: Not alot of power, front brakes, needs oil change frequently.

    Summary: I bought my '01 Honda Recon in the summer of '02. It was used but I really didn't have that much money. When I got it everything was fine on it. But once I started riding with my friends on 300EX's, 400EX's, Blasters, and YZ's, it just wasn't happening. ... read more

    Pros: Powerful,excellent turning,quick stopping
    Cons: carburetor problem

    Summary: I bought my recon used, but in like new condition. It works like a new one most of the time. For some reason when I go over many bumps at a time it dies with my thumb on the throttle, but when I let off it idles fine and won't rev for about a minute. ... read more

    Pros: Excellent ATV for beginners.

    Pros: A powerful machine great for work in the yard and for recreation.
    Cons: There really aren't any other than better grip on stock tires.

    Summary: This four wheeler has been great to me and has left me no ideas of buying anything but a Honda. If you where lucky enough to purchase one of the recons in 2001 that had a side ways engine for an extra 50 cc boost you are lucky. The boost has made my ... read more

    Pros: Easy to ride, easy to maintain, inexpensive and fun.
    Cons: For its size and price, none.

    Summary: I have a Polaris Trail Boss, and bought my wife the Honda Recon as a surprise birthday present. As it turned out she can't seem to grasp the shifting even with the clutch less feature, so when we ride together I ride the smaller Recon. To Be honest ... read more

    Cons: no fuel gauge

    Summary: I just bought my Honda recon 2 days ago. I only got a chance to ride it twice, but while I was driving it, I didn't want to get off. This is my first ATV, and to me, it is real simple to drive. It has the automatic clutch, so shifting gears is simple and ... read more

    Pros: Good first ATV. reverse, good beginners first 4-wheeler.
    Cons: GROUND CLEARANCE, 4x2, gets stuck easily, racks

    Summary: The Recon was my first ATV. It has served me well for about a year now. The 2 major things that I don't like about it is that it has a fairly low ground clearance, and the racks have no "lip" on them. In my trails, I have bottomed out in dirt and mud ... read more

    Cons: Causes you to ride when you should be working, and daydream.

    Cons: Too small, not enough power, stiff suspension

    Summary: I bought a 2000 Honda Recon in Feb. of 2000 because it looked neat, felt good and was cheap. It has been a good investment, but I wish I had spent another $1000 or 2 and gone with a bigger and better Yamaha or Kawasaki. The Recon has power, but does ... read more
