The TRX500 Foreman ES EPS strikes the perfect balance between work and play. The high torque 475 cc engine will dig deep to pull a heavy load on the job site or churn through axle-deep mud on the trails. Matched perfectly with the sophisticated transmission is an equally advanced 4WD system that offers three different options for maximum versatility; 2WD, 4WD with torque-sensing front diff or 4WD with fully locked front diff. Equally adept at work or play the TRX500 Foreman ES EPS is not really a compromise but rather a master of both domains.
CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

Standard

  • Dual front hydraulic disc brakes and sealed mechanical rear drum brake for strong stopping power.
  • Rubber swingarm pivot bushings yield increased low-speed ride comfort and increased durability.
  • Rear brake is located inside the right rear wheel for improved durability and increased ground clearance.
  • Durable double-cradle steel frame developed with Computer Aided Engineering features increased stiffness and reduced weight for precise handling and a smoother ride.
  • Front and rear suspension both offer 185 mm (7.3 inches) of travel for a plush and controlled ride.
  • Adjustable spring preload on all shocks allows suspension to be tuned to match varying loads and riding conditions.
  • Enclosed-axle type swingarm offers optimized stiffness for improved toughness and durability, and excellent handling performance.
  • Rugged steel frame and suspension offer generous ground clearance of 191 mm (7.5 inches).
  • Electric Power Steering System (EPS) reduces steering effort for enhanced manoeuvrability and decreased kickback for improved all-around steering action.
  • Plastic CV joint boots are more durable and tear-resistant.
  • Sealed steering knuckle bearings for extended durability.
Engine/Drivetrain

Standard

  • 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.
  • Stainless-steel exhaust system includes a USDA-qualified spark arrester/muffler designed for quiet operation without servicing for long-lasting performance.
  • 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.
  • Super-heavy-duty automatic clutch with low-rpm engagement for excellent drivability and towing capacity.
  • 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.
  • Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system improves power delivery and throttle response, and increases fuel efficiency extending range.
  • 2WD/4WD system now 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.
