Of the 4 you selected the Rubicon would be the best. But, Honda also makes the Rincon, which apparently after a gear reduction is better than the rest.

Rincon is not a good mud bike. For the price of a new Rincon, a 650 can am outlander can be purchased and will blow ANY honda away. That's coming from a honda owner. I see it every weekend.

Also, as you stated, a gear reduction would be needed to make it decent and thats tacks on another bill...

I was just kidding about making the Rincon into a mudder. If I was going to make something into a serious mudder, I don't think id even use a Honda. And your right, the Rincons and Honda all together just seem too over priced. I was lucky to find mine for 2K under MSRP, it being 2 years old. If I had to do it over again I would have bought a Renegade 800.

Honda's isn't over priced. The quality "Fit and finish and dependability" is 2nd to none. Honda's problem is they are behind times with atv's such as no frontlocker and small engines ect. In my opinion there are a lot better machines for mudding and speed but for dependability I stay with honda!

Honda's parts are just as cheap as everyone elses, and sell for more. If Honda put a front locker on, a bigger motor in, then the Rincon would probably be about 9500 brand new. I like my Honda, but I could nit pic it all day. I also think that the reason that Hondas cost more is because their gear driven transmisions. Everyone always Hondas are the most reliable ATV, but all quads are reliable if you work on them and take care of them.
