The TRX420 models have always been popular with recreational and utility riders alike, making them among the best-selling ATVs in Canada. These “right-sized”, easy-handling ATVs are renowned for their durability and reliability and right at the top of the 420 lineup sits the TRX420 DCT IRS EPS.
The TRX420 DCT IRS EPS is aimed directly at Canadian trail riders and includes a number of features that are sure to make it a very popular choice. A chassis with, long travel, fully independent rear suspension houses the proven, sideways-mounted 420 cc engine with its exceptionally low centre of gravity. This combination of advanced chassis and low centre of gravity ensures light and predictable handling, with electric power steering only adding to the sense of agility and security. The 420 power plant, uses the latest version of Honda’s brilliant fully automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT), which seems to have an ever-increasing number of followers due to its outstanding durability and seamless operation. Disc brakes front and rear, including a well-protected, inboard, driveshaft-mounted rear disc, take care of the stopping duties while a one-handed reverse shift mechanism allows the rider to quickly and easily select reverse without ever releasing the handlebars. Full-coverage bodywork has a tough larger-than-life appearance and surrounds a new, thickly padded comfortable seat. The TRX420 DCT IRS EPS adds comfort, better handling and a sharper look – the next Canadian favourite is here.
Overhead-valve design provides compact engine dimensions for improved ground clearance while maintaining a broad, easy-to-use powerband.
Rubber-cushion engine mounting and gear-driven counter-balancer reduce vibration.
Convenient electric starting, with an automatic internal-decompression system.
Stainless-steel exhaust system includes a USDA-qualified spark arrester/muffler designed for quiet operation without servicing for long-lasting performance.
Final Drive : 2WD/4WD; direct front and rear driveshafts with 2WD/4WD shifter and torque-sensing front differential
Rugged OHV liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 420 cc longitudinally mounted engine allows direct driveshaft alignment to both front and rear wheels for maximum drivetrain efficiency.
Super-heavy-duty automatic clutch with low-rpm engagement for excellent drivability and towing capacity.
Handy 4WD/2WD selector lever, mounted on the left-front panel engages 4WD when needed for the tough stuff and 2WD when conditions allow.
Sealed steering knuckle bearings for extended durability.
Fully automatic, five-speed, Dual Clutch Transmission with Selectable Electric Shift (ESP) and reverse
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system improves power delivery and throttle response, and increases fuel efficiency extending range.
Automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) provides the compact size and strength of a manual transmission (no belts to slip, break or burnout) with the convenience of an automatic transmission. DCT features a dual shift mapping program that automatically selects between two transmission shifting modes—either Cruise or Sport mode—for optimum shift timing depending on the rider’s pattern of throttle operation. During aggressive use, the Sport mode kicks in and holds the transmission in gear longer before shifting to deliver more aggressive performance. During more casual operation, the Cruise mode allows the transmission to shift up sooner for more casual performance and enhanced fuel efficiency. In addition to the fully automatic mode, the DCT transmission also allows riders to employ Honda's exclusive Electric Shift Program (ESP) for easy shifts with the touch of handlebar-mounted buttons.
Powerful AC generator has ample capacity with 450 watts of output.
Durable double-cradle steel frame developed with Computer Aided Engineering features increased stiffness for precise handling and a smoother ride.
Double wishbone independent front suspension offers generous well controlled travel providing a sense of security and control over difficult terrain.
Adjustable spring preload featured on all shocks allows suspension to be tuned to match varying loads and riding conditions.
Rugged steel frame and long travel suspension offer plenty of ground clearance.
Electric Power Steering (EPS) offers excellent linearity in steering response, reduced low-speed steering effort for enhanced maneuverability and decreased kickback for improved all-around steering action. A three-point mounting setup for the EPS system makes the entire steering mechanism more rigid for even more precise steering.
Steering-mechanism features a tight turning radius.
Plastic CV joint boots are more durable and tear-resistant.
Tough, large-diameter front and rear tires provide excellent ground clearance while maintaining precise handling.
Inboard rear disc brake is mounted on the rear driveshaft reducing unsprung weight and keeping the disc out of harms way in rugged conditions.
Large dual front hydraulic disc brakes offer impressive stopping power
Independent rear suspension (IRS) design with lower 'A' arm and upper 'I' arm features optimized stiffness for improved handling performance. Comfort is also enhanced with longer travel.
