New for 2014
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.
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.
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.
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.
