Overview

Description

Engine/Drivetrain
  • Powerful liquid-cooled, 475 cc single-cylinder OHV four-stroke engine is longitudinally mounted allowing direct driveshaft alignment to both front and rear wheels for maximum drivetrain efficiency.
  • Overhead-valve design provides compact engine dimensions for improved ground clearance while maintaining a broad, easy-to-use powerband.
  • Rubber-cushion engine mounting and gear-driven counter-balancer reduce vibration.
  • Convenient electric starting, with an automatic internal-decompression system.
  • Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system improves power delivery and throttle response, and increases fuel efficiency extending range.
  • Super-heavy-duty automatic clutch with low-rpm engagement for excellent drivability and towing capacity.
  • 2WD/4WD system offers three drive modes: 2WD; 4WD with torque-sensing front differential; and 4WD with locked front differential to optimize traction. The system also features a Speed Override mode that can be engaged when the front differential is locked, which allows increased wheel speed under severe conditions such as deep mud.
  • Rugged five speed transmission with ultra-low first gear features manual (foot) shift with automatic clutch.
  • Powerful AC generator has generous capacity with 481 watts of output.
  • Stainless-steel exhaust system includes a USDA-qualified spark arrester/muffler designed for quiet operation without servicing for long-lasting performance.
Chassis/Suspension
  • Durable double-cradle steel frame developed with Computer Aided Engineering is both rigid and lightweight for precise handling and a smoother ride.
  • Front and rear suspension both feature 185 mm (7.3 in.) of travel for a plush, controlled ride.
  • Adjustable spring preload is featured on all shocks to allow suspension tuning to match varying loads and riding conditions.
  • Enclosed-axle type swingarm with optimized stiffness for improved toughness and durability, and excellent handling performance.
  • Rubber swingarm pivot bushings yield increased low-speed ride comfort and increased durability.
  • Generous ground clearance of 191 mm (7.5 in.) allows you to ride over rugged terrain with ease.
  • Plastic CV joint boots are durable and tear-resistant. Sealed steering-knuckle bearings improve steering performance and durability.
  • Rear drum brake is located inside the right rear wheel for improved durability and increased ground clearance. Dual front hydraulic disc brakes with large 190 mm rotors provide strong and consistent stopping power.
Additional Features
  • Durable bodywork provides excellent mud and debris protection. Full-length synthetic lower skidplate with integrated front brush guard protects against damage from rocks, sticks and other obstacles.
  • Twin-headlight system features 35-watt headlights with a carefully focused light distribution pattern for improved visibility after dark. Top assist light operates independently of front headlights so it can be turned off while carrying a load on the front carrier.
  • One-piece tank/side cover allows easy access (no tools required) for maintenance.
  • Fuel pump derived from Honda automobile technology is mounted in the fuel tank for better heat isolation and offers increased filter life.
  • Full function meter assembly gives the dash a modern look while providing the information needed at a glance. The meter even includes a Maintenance Minder system that notifies when it is time for service.
  • Seat padding is thick and soft for all-day comfort.
  • Load capacity for front and rear carriers is 40 kg (88 lb), and 80 kg (176 lb) respectively.
  • Heavy-duty trailer hitch with 385 kg (848-pound) towing capacity.
  • A host of optional accessories allow you to tailor your TRX500FM to your needs.
