With an impeccable reputation as a hard-working partner, Honda’s next generation TRX500FM2, complete with revised EPS, will strengthen this status.

Honda’s Electric Power Steering (EPS) system incorporates new ECU mapping for improved linearity in steering response, reduced low-speed steering effort for enhanced manoeuvrability and decreased kickback traits for improved all-around steering action.

NEW FOR 2014
  • All-new double-cradle steel frame developed with Computer Aided Engineering features increased stiffness and reduces weight for even more precise handling and a smoother ride.
  • A selectable locking front differential has been added to the TRX500FM2’s TraxLok® selectable 4WD drive system to further expand its off-road capabilities when the going gets tough. Honda’s TRX500FM2 is formerly the TRX500FPM.

RUGGED & RELIABLE
  • A new chassis featuring longer-travel suspension elevates performance to a whole new level while a brand new enclosed axle swingarm has been developed to balance and optimise strength and rigidity, while improving rider comfort.
  • Revised mapping for the Electronic Fuel Injection program gives the strong liquid-cooled 475cc single-cylinder OHV four-stroke engine improved power delivery, throttle response and fuel efficiency.
  • New, aggressively styled bodywork provides improved mud and water protection and an all-new one-piece fuel tank/side cover panel allows easy access for maintenance.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES
  • Powerful liquid-cooled 475cc single-cylinder OHV four-stroke engine is longitudinally mounted in the frame allowing direct driveshaft alignment to front and rear wheels for improved drivetrain efficiency.
  • Other updates such as more powerful headlights, new electronic instrumentation and improved rider ergonomics ensure the TRX500FM2 offers even greater practicality and value than ever before.
  • Dual front hydraulic disc brakes and sealed mechanical rear drum brake provide strong stopping power.
  • Revolutionary Electric Power Steering (EPS) with new three-point mounting setup for the EPS system makes the entire steering mechanism more rigid for even more precise steering.
  • New fuel pump is derived from Honda automobile technology. It mounts in the fuel tank for better heat isolation and offers increased fuel filter life.
  • The new TraxLok system also features a Speed Override mode that can be engaged when the front differential is locked, this allows increased wheel speed under severe conditions such as deep mud.
  • Overhead-valve design creates a compact engine for excellent ground clearance while maintaining a broad, easy-to-use powerband.
  • The TRX500FM2 has a super-heavy-duty automatic clutch with a low-rpm engagement point for excellent driveability and towing capability.
  • The five-speed manual transmission with reverse includes an ultra-low first gear.
  • New front and rear suspension features an increase in travel plus new shocks for a plush and controlled ride.
  • Adjustable spring preload now featured on all shocks allows suspension tuning to match varying loads and riding conditions.

NOTE
  • Honda advises to ride your ATV safely. Do not overload an ATV beyond manufacturer's specifications, children under 16 years should not ride adult ATVs, always wear appropriate riding gear, and avoid riding on surfaces that may affect the handling and control of your ATV.
