2017 Honda TRX250X Special Edition

/
Sized Right For Fun.

Maybe specialization is fine if you’re talking about insects. But in the world of a great all-around sport ATV, versatility is the key to having a good time. You want a machine that can fit a wide range of riders, abilities and terrains. And that ATV is the Honda TRX250X.

There’s a reason this is one of our most popular sport ATVs. A whole bunch of reasons, actually. Beginners like the light handling, and especially appreciate the TRX250X’s broad, four-stroke powerband—a trait that’s made Honda engines famous for decades. Lots of riders enjoy the exclusive Honda SportClutch™. It’s a unique feature that gives you all the control of a manual shift and clutch, but that also eliminates the chance of shift-induced stalling. Riders with more experience like the long-travel suspension and athletic performance on the trail. And just about everyone appreciates the low-maintenance features like the shaft final drive and famous Honda reliability.

Light enough for smaller adults, big enough for full-sized riders, and with a powerband not easily outgrown, the TRX250X is the ATV you can purchase once and ride just about forever. And that’s exactly what you’d expect when you choose a Honda.

Innovations

  • FRESH STYLING: With a TRX250X, you get your choice of distinct color styles. A white version featuring silver aluminum wheels is really unique in our ATV lineup. And there’s even a special edition red version with race-inspired graphics as wells as red hubs and springs. Black aluminum wheels too.
  • INDEPENDENT FRONT SUSPENSION: Independent double-wishbone front suspension provides an exceptional 5.9 inches of travel and a smooth ride over rough terrain.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM WHEELS: Lightweight aluminum wheels reduce unsprung weight for superior handling.
  • EXCLUSIVE HONDA SPORTCLUTCH™: The handlebar-mounted Honda SportClutch enables the rider to experience manual clutch actuation with the advantage of no stalling when coming to a stop. This revolutionary feature allows beginning or novice riders to learn clutch engagement points, while experienced riders enjoy the full performance of a conventional manual clutch.
  • KEYED IGNITION: Keyed ignition switch for added security. The switch also lets you control who goes riding and when.
  • REVERSE: The TRX250X’s easy to use reverse makes unloading or maneuvering out of tight trail conditions easier.
  • ELECTRIC STARTER: The effortless electric starter makes getting the engine started easy, even when the engine is cold.
  • RUGGED, RELIABLE 229CC OHV ENGINE: The TRX250X’s lightweight OHV air-cooled 229cc engine is longitudinally mounted, allowing direct driveshaft alignment to rear wheels for more efficient power transfer. The two-valve cylinder head design features performance-optimized valve timing, a 31.5mm-diameter intake valve and a 27mm-diameter exhaust valve contribute to the engine’s broad, usable powerband.
  • RUBBER-MOUNTED ENGINE: A rubber-mounted engine reduces vibration. This helps make parts last longer, and cuts down on rider fatigue as well.
  • SHAFT FINAL DRIVE: Honda’s fully sealed rear driveshaft is super-strong and virtually maintenance free. The driveshaft sits in-line with the engine’s crankshaft for maximum driveline efficiency.
