New for 2014
A new chassis featuring longer-travel suspension elevates performance to a whole new level. Revised mapping for the Electronic Fuel Injection program gives the strong liquid-cooled 475cc single-cylinder OHV four-stroke engine with improved power delivery, throttle response and increased fuel efficiency.
A selectable locking front differential has been added to the TRX500FM1’s TraxLok® selectable 4WD drive system to further expand its off-road capabilities when the going gets tough.
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. Honda’s TRX500FM1 is formerly the TRX500FM.
Rugged & Reliable
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.
A brand new enclosed axle swingarm has been developed to balance and optimise strength and rigidity, while improving rider comfort.
New, aggressively styled bodywork provides improved mud and water protection while an all-new one-piece fuel tank/side cover panel allows easy access for maintenance.
Other updates such as more powerful headlights, new electronic instrumentation and improved rider ergonomics ensure the TRX500FM1 offers even greater practicality and value than ever before.
Dual front hydraulic disc brakes and sealed mechanical rear drum brake provide strong stopping power.
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.
