This all-new ATV raises the bar with bold new styling, a completely new chassis with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) and a new 500-class engine featuring Honda’s advanced dual-range automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).
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.
The automatic DCT provides the compact size and strength of a manual transmission (no belts to slip, break or burn out) with the convenience of an automatic transmission, while giving the rider the option of push-button manual control via Honda’s Electric Shift Program (ESP®)
