I own a 2003 and 2004 450 Foreman ES and a 2005 and 2008 Honda Rincon. This is what I notice going from the foreman to the rincon. The Rincon seems very quick. It rides and Handles Great. It is very fun to drive with the 3spd auto. Now I do miss the low gears and engine braking of the foreman for steep hills but I am just now getting use to the Rincon on steep hills and found out that the brakes in 4x4 will stop you with no problem on a very steep hills and really not slide around like you would think. Now i have heard nothing but great things about the 420 rancher at. My cousin bought one with powersteering and they like it but I haven't got to go see it yet. I will tell you this. If you plan on someone riding with you on the bike the rincon has a lot for room for 2 people to ride than the rancher.
