With bold styling, a chassis with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) and our 500-class engine featuring Honda's advanced dual-range automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), the outstanding white Honda TRX500FA7 will get the job done.


Unique Features

Hondas 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.

Varying loads and riding conditions can be easily matched with the adjustable spring preload feature available on all shocks. While the larger 190mm dual hydraulic disc brakes up front and 170mm hydraulic disc brake in back provide strong stopping power.

Additional Features

  • The broad, easy-to-use powerband and massive pulling power of the Honda 500-class engine brings legendary status to the Honda TRX range.
  • Direct driveshaft alignment to the front and rear wheels is achieved with the powerful liquid-cooled single-cylinder OHV four-stroke engine mounted longitudinally in the frame, improving drivetrain efficiency.
  • The automatic DCT provides the convenience of an automatic transmission with the strength and contact size of a manual, while giving the rider push button manual control options via Honda's Electric Shift Program (ESP).
  • The automatic DCT features a dual shift-mapping program that automatically selects between two transmission shifting modeseither Cruise or Sport modefor the most favourable shift timing based on the riders throttle operation patterns. The Sport mode holds the transmission in gear longer before shifting for a more aggressive riding performance. For causal operation the Cruise mode shifts gears sooner for enhanced fuel efficiency during a more relaxed ride.
  • Honda TraxLok 2WD/4WD system offers 2WD, 4WD, and 4WD mode with locking front differential to optimise traction. TraxLok system incorporates a Speed Override mode that can be engaged when the front differential is locked, allowing increased wheel speed under severe conditions such as deep mud.
  • Increased stiffness and better torsional rigidity are offered by the double-cradle steel frame, providing precise handling and a smooth ride. Front suspension delivers 185mm of travel with an independent double-wishbone set up. An increased rear suspension stroke of 216mm of travel, offering a more optimal shock ratio, comes from an independent dual-arm design.
  • A large, lightweight plastic fuel tank with 14.7Lt, including 4.9Lt reserve keep you going to get the job done.
  • The heavy-duty trailer hitch offers a massive towing capacity of 599kg and the all-steel front and rear flat plate carriers facilitate loading and provide multiple tie-down points with a load capacity of 45kg up front and 85kg on the rear. The aggressive styling of the all-steel full-coverage front bumper provides even more functionality with integrated mounts for an accessory winch.
