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.
