Delivers exhilarating acceleration and provides a top speed of 53 mph (85.3 km/h)
    • 839-cm<sup>3</sup> gasoline engine

      839-cm3 gasoline engine

    The RSX850i is powered by an 839-cm3, V-twin, four-cycle motorcycle gasoline engine. It produces 62 hp* and 59.5 lb-ft of torque (80.6 Nm). The advanced electronic controls and fuel-injection systems deliver superb starting, idling, and throttle response during operation.

     

    The engine offers the following performance and reliability features:

    • Delivers exhilarating acceleration for a gravity-defying experience
    • 53-mph (85.3-km/h) top speed
    • Mounted transversely under the seats for a low center of gravity and more equal weight distribution between the front and rear axles
    • Closed-loop electronic fuel injection for superb performance, instant throttle response, consistent performance at high altitude, and hassle-free cold-weather starting (tested to -20°F, or -29°C)
      • Dual oxygen sensors provide a more accurate air-to-fuel ratio balance between cylinders, increasing ability to start and overall engine performance
    • Engine control unit (ECU) cutout to protect critical drive components when the wheel speed far exceeds the vehicle speed
    • Liquid cooled for quieter operation and optimal performance
    • Four-valve-per-cylinder design provides greater efficiency and fuel economy
    • Dry sump oiling system
      • More efficiently lubricates the engine resulting in more available horsepower over a conventional wet sump design
      • Oil tank is more easily accessible for checking and filling the oil
      • Allows for the engine to be mounted low in the vehicle to lower the center of gravity
      • Oil cooler in front of radiator to help keep engine oil at lower operating temperatures
    • Full-pressure lubrication system
    • Spin-on oil filter with drain bracket and oil drain valve enable easy servicing
    • High-flow air filter

Four-wheel independent suspension provides unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners
    • RSX front suspension detail

      RSX front suspension detail

    To complement one of the most unique and capable powertrains available in a recreational utility vehicle, the RSX is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension.  This unique suspension setup provides an unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners.

     

    The engineering team in collaboration with engineering firms that consult with Formula 1, NASCAR® and INDYCAR® teams, built a sport-tuned suspension system for class-leading operator comfort, no matter what the terrain, and handling that makes one think they are on rails. 

    • Dual, wide arch A-arm design provides maximum front-wheel control, precise steering, and maximum ground clearance out to the wheel
    • 9 in. (23 cm) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
    • Exclusive aluminum-body, high-pressure monotube shocks or piggyback shocks; both provided by Fox Shocks™ (see more details below)
    • Solid anti-roll bar, with fully rubber isolated connecting links and pivots, is tuned to provide the most agile and predictable handling
    • Camber during compression to compensate for body roll and to maintain an optimal tire contact patch for improved cornering grip
    • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability. 
    • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle and upper A-arm to support the high stresses of the shocks, constant velocity (CV) shaft, and wheels
    • Automotive-style fully boxed and welded-steel lower A-arms to minimize unsprung mass and maximize strength
    • Maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation
    • CV shaft protection from sticks that may puncture the rubber boot
    • Anti-dive front suspension geometry provides a solid platform for confident braking
    • RSX rear suspension detail

      Multi-Link independent rear suspension (IRS)

    • Exclusive Multi-Link semi-trailing arm rear suspension moves wheel rearward and outward in compression
    • 9 in. (23 cm) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keeps all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
    • Exclusive aluminum-body, high-pressure monotube shocks or piggyback shocks; both provided by Fox Shocks (see more details below)
    • Solid anti-roll bar, with fully rubber isolated connecting links and pivots, is tuned to provide the most agile and predictable handling

    • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability.
    • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle and lower A-arm to support the high stresses of the shocks, CV shaft, and wheels with the toughness to survive impacts from boulders
    • Heat-treated aluminum cast upper A-arms to minimize unsprung mass
    • Maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation

    • Exclusive aluminum-body, high-pressure monotube Fox Racing Shocks
      • Fully adjustable spring preload for different driving styles
      • High-pressure nitrogen gas is separated from the damping oil by an internal floating piston (IFP). The separation prevents aeration (frothing) and viscosity degradation of the oil which improves damping consistency and performance fade.
      • Pressure and heat generation in the monotube is less than a traditional twin-tube shock, allowing for better vehicle control in aggressive conditions.
      • The single aluminum shell of the monotube design allows for more efficient heat rejection and lower overall unsprung mass.
      • Mounting the shaft end of the shock to the suspension arm lowers the unsprung mass of the suspension system, leading to improved suspension response.

      • Piggyback reservoir houses high-pressure nitrogen gas, separated from the damping oil by an internal floating piston (IFP). The separation prevents aeration (frothing) and viscosity degradation of the oil which improves damping consistency and performance fade.
      • Large, 2.0 aluminum bodies help reduce internal pressures and improve heat dissipation, which results in consistent fade-free performance in aggressive riding conditions.
      • Compression adjustment allows the user to tune damping rates for different riding preferences and trail conditions
      • Tuned with Fox factory support on some of the most grueling trails in the United States
