2020 TRX Rubicon
eta August 2019
For 2020, Honda’s extremely popular, do-it-all 500-class Rubicon benefits from more of the very qualities that have long made this model such a popular choice with customers. All Rubicon models still come standard with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) for exceptional traction and comfort, and they now get a 43 cc displacement increase to 518 cc, adding power where it’s used most, in the low- and middle-rpm ranges. On non-manual models, engaging the reverse gear is now a simple operation accomplished electronically via a single lever that fits a wide range of hand sizes and can be operated easily and quickly, without the need to engage neutral. Three Rubicon models are offered, two of which come with a high-tech Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), and those two now feature manual-shift override capability so that riders can command gear changes at will, even in automatic mode — enabling use of engine braking for situations like corner entry and descents, (automatic mode takes over again a few seconds after manual inputs). The Rubicon models’ front and rear cargo racks now have expanded planar surfaces for more carrying options, and they integrate with Honda’s new Pro-Connect line of modular accessories. All Rubicon models get a new front grill, as well as an updated 50-watt LED assist headlight and a 1.9-liter front utility box that can be accessed from the rider cockpit when stopped.
