INTRODUCING THE TRX500FA6

This all-new ATV raises the bar with bold new styling, a completely new chassis with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) and a new 500-class engine featuring Honda’s advanced dual-range automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

Honda’s 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.

The automatic DCT provides the compact size and strength of a manual transmission (no belts to slip, break or burn out) with the convenience of an automatic transmission, while giving the rider the option of push-button manual control via Honda’s Electric Shift Program (ESP®)

ENGINE/DRIVETRAIN

For 2015, the automatic DCT features a new dual shift-mapping program that automatically selects between two transmission shifting modes—either Cruise or Sport mode—for optimum shift timing depending on the rider’s pattern of throttle operation.

During aggressive use, the Sport mode kicks in and holds the transmission in gear longer before shifting to deliver more aggressive performance. During more casual operation, the Cruise mode allows the transmission to shift up sooner for more casual performance and enhanced fuel efficiency.

New Drive/Low sub transmission offers two selectable gear ranges to match varying riding conditions.

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

New double-cradle steel frame features increased stiffness and better torsional rigidity for precise handling and a smooth ride.

New independent double-wishbone front suspension delivers 185mm of travel. New independent dual-arm rear suspension design offers a more optimal shock ratio and increased suspension stroke for 216mm of travel.

 Adjustable spring preload featured on all shocks to allow suspension tuning to match varying loads and riding conditions.
