Honda's next generation TRX500FM2, complete with revised Electric Power Steering, will continue to hold its reputation as a hardworking partner.


Unique Features

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.

Maximum weight capacity has been increased to 250kg.

Additional Features

  • 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.
  • 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 fuel pump is derived from Honda automobile technology. It mounts in the fuel tank for better heat isolation and offers increased fuel filter life.
  • The new TraxLok system also features a Speed Override mode that can be engaged when the front differential is locked, this allows increased wheel speed under severe conditions such as deep mud.
  • Overhead-valve design creates a compact engine for excellent ground clearance while maintaining a broad, easy-to-use powerband.
  • A new chassis featuring longertravel 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.
  • New, aggressively styled bodywork provides improved mud and water protection and an all-new onepiece fuel tank/side cover panel allows easy access for maintenance.
  • Revolutionary Electric Power Steering (EPS) with new threepoint mounting setup for the EPS system makes the entire steering mechanism more rigid for even more precise steering.
  • Honda’s TRX500FM2 is formerly the TRX500FPM.
