TOUGH TO BEAT. EASY TO RIDE.
When it absolutely has to get done right, and right away, there’s one ATV that’s absolutely the right choice: the legendary Honda TRX500 Foreman. There’s no mystery about why the Foreman has become the go-to ATV for when a field needs to be fenced, a power line inspected, or wood hauled from deep in the forest. Simply put, the Foreman was designed to pull like a tractor when you need deep-down power, handle tough terrain with supreme confidence, be intuitive to operate for even new workers on a job site, and – most of all – be built to take a beating. The same characteristics that make the Foreman ideal for hard work, also make it a popular choice among avid sportsmen, who appreciate its remarkable ability to slog through seemingly impassable terrain, and to tackle the most punishing trails in comfort and control. There are two versions of the TRX500 Foreman, both are powered by Honda’s liquid-cooled 475 cc OHV engine that’s tuned for huge low-end torque, plus ample top-end power for cruising the trails or logging roads. Electronic fuel-injection (PGM-FI) ensures crisp throttle response, consistent performance even at high altitudes, and reliable cold-weather starting.
Impressive power steering
Electric Power Steering (EPS) reduces steering effort for enhanced manoeuvrability and decreases kickback for improved all-around steering action.
Tackle any terrain
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.
Five-speed transmission with ultra-low first gear features Honda's exclusive Electric Shift Program (ESP) for easy shifts with the touch of handlebar-mounted buttons.
