I ran across this today, seemingly showing the Rubicon as a 700 cc machine.
But Honda has already announced the 2024 Rubicon with 520cc.
The 2024 Rincon is currently unannounced.
Could we see a Rincon 1000?

The below machine is listed as a 2024 TRX700FA5 model.

May I ask where?
👀

Edit: Nvm, I found it 😁

After some fiche perusing, it's seems its all Rincon parts, same 3psd torque converter driven engine. Maybe the current Rincon is going to become the Rubicon and like @Hondasxs says the Rincon will be moved up?

The above image was officially leaked by Honda. It's no longer available.
Bird told me that the Rincon is to be rebranded to a Rubicon 700.
No info on what is to become of the Rincon.
I have no further info.

Does anyone know how to search on the California CARB website for manufacturer's applications for new vehicle products to be approved for emissions? I remember someone a few years ago did a search and found something on the CARB website for possibly the talon before it was ever revealed.

I've been saying it for years... If Honda would put the foot shift africa twin motor in a rincon frame the other manufacturers would have to all bow down to the king. Even with a DCT the no power loss to the tires would easily smoke all the other belt driven atv's. Knowing Honda this won't be out until 2039. By then all the other manufacturers will have 1200 cc's in their quads and Honda will be playing catch up. All we get to look forward to every year is "bold new graphics" while the other mfg's are actually pushing the envelope. This is what I have come to expect from Honda. They are always late to the game. Still the best off road vehicles by far in my opinion.

Well, it's been 5 years for the rubicon, so I'm expecting Honda to do some type of a refresh on it, more than just BNG. Even if it stays a 520, hopefully they make some improvements, better shocks, maybe a 6 speed. It's got to be around the corner soon. They already have some 2025 bikes and sxs on their website.

Their website still shows the Pioneer 520 as 2022/2023. 🤣

P700: 2024/2025
P1000: 2023/2024

solid...

I did check this morning after you mentioned as I had not checked in a few weeks.
It is not listed.
They have been doing a good job holding back un-released details since the 2019 fiasco.
