As for the transmission offerings from Honda, here in the Recon category you will find two choices. The first is the foot-shift model that allows riders to mechanically shift from each gear up or down. The semi-automatic clutch system allows this to happen without the use of clutch-lever actuation. It is all handled internally in the engine. The next is the ESP, or Electric Shift Program, that allows riders to change gears via a bar-mounted control center. The simple push of a button, either up arrow or down arrow, allows riders to get to the appropriate gear instantly. This also makes riding the Honda FourTrax Recon much easier for those who are still learning to ride, allowing them to focus on the trail ahead and not the operational mechanics of the machine.
