2006 Honda Rincon 650

I am looking at purchasing a used 2006 Honda Rincon 650. It's only had 1 owner with 450 hours and 2800 miles. 4 wheeeler appears to be in good shape from the photos and has a rear basket rack and a winch on the front. Front brakes don't work. I have not seen it in person at this time and will go on Saturday to test drive it. The guy is asking $2000 for it, which doesn't seem like a bad deal at first glance.

Is there anything particular I need to look/check out for while riding it? Or any other comments about the price?

Thanks for the input

I really don't know anything about the value of this ATV. Sorry.

@shadetree wrote a great sticky about what to look for when buying a used ATV. It is located here:

Good Luck!

If its an 06 it should be the 680.(675cc). Miles dont sound too bad, but if there are maint/ records it would help.

This is a personal choice.
If you like what you see and are capable of fixing it, do it.

This is my opinion.
When a person sells something with issues I wonder what else was neglected during ownership.
My way of thinking is to have an item for sale in good shape. Shows pride of ownership.
Instead of this isn't working, this is broke.
I say it runs good without any problems.


The size of the wallet determines the size of your toys.

Welcome to the forum.

2003-2005 were 650 Rincons. Carbs and drum brakes up front. Some had issues with cams wearing prematurely.

06-current were 680 Rincons. Fuel injection and disc brakes up front.

These run on oil pressure, so I'd ride it and make sure it pulls well, no slipping feeling with the transmission. Since you say the brakes don't work I'm guessing it's an 03-05 650.

They aren't bad bikes. The 3 speed transmission leaves a lot to be desired for everything but trail riding, but they have great power for a Honda.

They are not cheap or easy to work on, so I'd check it over very carefully.

Thanks for the replies. I did notice the 2006 was supposed to be a 680 after research online. I have asked the seller to provide me with the VIN # so I can confirm the make/model/year.

I also read about the 3 speed transmission. That is of some concern to me because I am not familiar with that. The farm does have some pretty steep hills on some of our roads. I wasn't sure how the 3 speed would hold up when I just need a good low gear to get up some hills. I will use the 4-wheeler around the farm for going to and from places and some light hauling. My father in law has a Polaris 900 UTV and a tractor that we use for heavy lifting/hauling of items.

I am with you diyer on having items not working on something you own, I can't stand that. But like I just said above, I have access to a Polaris 900 UTV that we've been using the last year. I'm just looking for a 4wheeler to add to the list of toys on the farm. I don't want to spend a fortune on a 4 wheeler. I don't mind doing some basic fixes if I can save some $ on the front end.

Here is a link to the facebook marketplace ad so you can see photos of the referenced 4 wheeler. Maybe someone can distinguish if it's a 650 or 680 from the pics...

Well they have power and are great, smooth riding trail machines, but if you want to use it for work I'd get a Foreman or Rubicon. The Rincon is more of a toy.

That's a 650. The petcock in the left tank cover gives it away. The fuel injected 680's didn't have a petcock on them.
