by Edwin,

With the introduction of the all-new 2008 TRX700XX ATV, Honda enters the large-displacement Sport ATV market at the peak of the high-performance curve and accelerates into the red zone where no one can follow. Its electric-start, fuel-injected 686cc four-stroke engine traces its heritage to the Baja-dominating XR650R and delivers class-leading power. Just as significant, the drivetrain and suspension of the TRX700XX are state-of-the-art and then some.

On the other end of the spectrum are focused, competition-oriented machines like Honda’s TRX450R, which boasts a ready-to-race liquid-cooled, four-valve Unicam four-stroke engine and agile suspension.

General 2008 Honda TRX700XX All-Terrain vehicle (ATV) reviews for Uganda

The lifeblood of the 700XX is its 686cc dry-sump, liquid-cooled SOHC four-valve single-cylinder four-stroke engine. With a bore and stroke of 102mm x 84mm, it boasts the largest diameter single-cylinder that Honda has ever mass-produced. Although it is infused with the heart of the potent XR650R mill, the 700XX engine has been purpose-designed and built for the rigors of ATV duty. Given the higher weight of ATVs (compared to off-road motorcycles), torque—and lots of it—was a priority.

A longer (plus 2.0mm) stroke and slightly larger (plus 1.4mm) bore accomplish this. But in keeping with Honda’s philosophy of mass-centralization and a low Cg (center of gravity) to achieve optimal handling, engineers determined that a taller cylinder and engine would not do. So they shortened the overall height of the engine by creating a longer-throw crankpin and a correspondingly shorter, carburized connecting rod to shorten cylinder height. The connecting rod is affixed to a ball-bearing crankshaft. Smooth, all-day riding comfort was assured with the fitment of a gear-driven counter balance to neutralize engine vibration.

The frame of the TRX700XX is constructed of steel with a removable sub-frame; each is extremely durable and strong. Independent double-wishbone front suspension uses steel A-arms and premium shock absorbers featuring two single-rate springs per side. This application of dual springs, a first for Honda, separates the function of each. Both the main spring and the short top spring (second spring) are single rate. Bottoming resistance is provided by the heavier main spring and the top spring adds compliance over small bumps.

Together, they achieve what a progressive-rate single spring could have accomplished, but in a lighter, more compact package that takes full advantage of the 10.5 inches of useable suspension travel. Front preload is adjusted with screw-type adjusters. The A-arms are attached to aluminum steering knuckles, which in turn bolt up to aluminum hubs and 10-inch diameter aluminum wheels fitted with 21x7R-10 Dunlop radials.
