2013 Honda TRX250X: A Great Learning Machine, Inside And Out
Now that my kids are getting a little older, the time has come to start looking around for their next ATV. They need a machine that will give them enough power to satisfy their urge to test their newest riding gear, and indulge their growing curiosities, skills and adrenaline on the trails, while also providing plenty of safety features and extras to keep everyone happy. The Honda TRX250X certainly meets these requirements, as the ATV offers a great blend of power, balance and safety that should keep riders – and their families – happy.
Engine And Frame
If you’re looking for an ATV with power, the 2013 Honda TRX250X has it. The air-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine has a 229cc displacement. The lightweight engine is rubber-mounted to reduce vibrations and has a longitudinal layout to maximize power. Its proximity to the rear wheels creates a streamlined power transfer for a quicker response and easier handling.
Of course, the engine can’t do much if you lack the tools to operate it. That’s why the TRX250X comes with Honda’s SportsClutch, a tool that allows riders to manually shift gears with a support that works to prevent stalling. Riders who are still getting used to the process can learn as they go from the handlebar-mounted, which teaches where the clutch engagement points are located.
The engine works perfectly with the frame of the ATV to provide superior balance. A double-cradle steel chassis includes a suspension with 5.9 inches of travel.
Final Thoughts – A Top Machine Inside And Out
As great as the engine and chassis are, some of the exterior features work to further set the Honda ATV apart. Light aluminum wheels, electric starting and low-maintenance gear allow riders to get used to taking care of the machine, and it even comes with a tool kit that encourages owners to become familiar with the ins and outs of the vehicle. You’ll also be able to learn the ropes of riding thanks to the comfortable and spacious seat that has been designed for extensive use and a range of different riding styles.
While the 2013 Honda TRX250X could definitely serve as a learning machine for new riders, it is also well suited for slightly older motorists. Honda recommends the ATV for people ages 16 and over, who will appreciate having the ability to take over any terrain, and that age group will also like the excellent combination of power and features. Ultimately, the 2013 Honda TRX250X provides a great blend of power, balance and safety that sets it apart from other ATVs.
