The familiar TRX500FM name takes on a completely new form: an aggressively styled manual-shift ATV with a legendary 475cc fuel-injected engine and new chassis, including Independent Rear Suspension (IRS).
Honda's IRS uses a double-wishbone design with upper/lower A-arms to substantially reduce unsprung weight. The rear knuckle pivots use lightweight metal bushings in place of conventional ball joints and radius arms, eliminating geometry variations as the rear suspension travels through its stroke. This simple design maintains rear wheel alignment and further reduces unsprung weight, contributing to responsive overall handling.
Excellent ride comfort, increased payload and towing capacity, more ground clearance and suspension travel, plus Electric Power Steering (EPS) all add up to big fun that's more capable than ever.
The addition of Honda's Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system yields improved throttle response and smooth power delivery, and aids fuel economy for greater range.
Honda TraxLok 2WD/4WD system offers 2WD, 4WD, and 4WD mode with locking front differential to optimize traction.
TraxLok system incorporates a Speed Override mode that can be engaged when the front differential is locked, which allows increased wheel speed under severe conditions such as deep mud.
New double-cradle steel frame features increased stiffness and better torsional rigidity for precise handling and a smooth ride.
New independent double-wishbone front suspension delivers 185mm of travel. New independent dual-arm rear suspension design offers a more optimal shock ratio and increased suspension stroke for 216mm of travel.
Adjustable spring preload featured on all shocks to allow suspension tuning to match varying loads and riding conditions.
