2021 Honda TRX250X Features & Benefits

Proving that sporty ATVs can be both approachable and fun, Honda’s reliable, user-friendly TRX®250X is also affordable and off-road capable. The SportClutch™ eliminates concerns about stalling, but it can also be manually overridden when desired. The engine delivers smooth torque across the entire rev range, while the chassis combines agile cornering characteristics and predictable handling over a wide variety of terrain types. Suspension comprises an independent double-wishbone design in front and a single-shock swingarm setup in back, delivering a smooth ride even when tackling rough off-road obstacles. Up-and-coming riders will love the TRX250X’s usable nature, but the machine is still a ripper with a more experienced rider at the helm.
