2019 HondaRancher 420 key features:
420cc OHV liquid-cooled, fuel-injected single cylinder engine
Newer mapping for the Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system improves power delivery and throttle response, and increases fuel efficiency for greater range.
Stainless-steel exhaust system includes a USDA-qualified spark arrester/muffler designed for quiet operation without servicing for long-lasting performance.
Increased AC generator output of 450 watts to allow powering more electrical accessories.
Five-speed transmission with Reverse includes an ultra-low First gear.
Super-heavy-duty automatic clutch with a low-rpm engagement point for better driveability and towing capability.
Swingarm Rear Suspension - enclosed-axle type swingarm with optimized stiffness for improved toughness and durability.
Adds: Electric Power Steering - Three-point mounting setup for the EPS system makes the entire steering mechanism more rigid for even more precise steering.
Adds: TraxLok 2WD/4WD
Adds: Automatic DCT - The Automatic DCT provides the compact size and strength of a manual transmission (no belts to slip, break or burn out) with the convenience of an automatic transmission, while providingr the option of push-button manual control via Honda’s Electric Shift Program (ESP).
The Automatic DCT features a dual shift-mapping program that automatically selects between two transmission shifting modes—either Cruise or Sport mode—for optimum shift timing depending on the rider’s pattern of throttle operation.
During aggressive use, the Sport mode kicks in and holds the transmission in gear longer before shifting to deliver more aggressive performance.
During more casual operation, the Cruise mode allows the transmission to shift up sooner for more casual performance and enhanced fuel efficiency.
Adds: Electric Power Steering - Electric Power Steering (EPS) system incorporates new ECU mapping for improved linearity in steering response, reduced low-speed steering effort for enhanced maneuverability and decreased kickback traits for improved all-around steering action.
