I have both. Love them both, ride the XX more just like all my other quads, but I put a lot into the rincon for mods. You can ask anyone that went w/ me to Hatfield last year, I can ride the snot out of a utility quad, and keep up w/ just about anyone if I had the guts to do so on the straightaways, but I can corner them like a mofo. The rincon I can actually corner better than the XX, but if you are riding hard in the trails w/ a UTE you'll find your arms getting really tired. Comfort isn't bad either on the Rincon. If you get the sway bar for the XX, I think you will find you can corner better, but the comfort isn't as great. The Rincon is actually quite quick (even before my mods) for a big quad (I am like you as well, nothing but HONDA!) and I was pleased with it, I just got bored LOL.
