Hard-working, reliable, rugged and built to do it all, the Honda FourTrax is your go-to utility ATV for both the ranch and trail. The TRX500FPE FourTrax is built around a powerful 475cc overhead-valve engine with fuel injection, TraxLok selectable 2WD/4WD, new reverse mechanism and a dependable five-speed transmission. Plus, its towing-friendly swingarm rear suspension provides strong capability for towing and hauling, ensuring you can tackle your toughest job or favorite trail. These components are wrapped up in some tough, ruggedly designed bodywork to set the Honda Foreman apart from the rest.
A smart utility ATV also calls for smart features. Honda’s innovative Electric Power Steering (EPS) offers the most breakthrough power steering ever experienced on a utility ATV. Both speed- and torque-sensitive, the EPS system gives the rider the right amount of assist in every type of riding situation including rough terrain. Plus, it greatly reduces kickback through the handlebar in rough or rocky terrain to reduce riding fatigue even more. And three mounting points increase rigidity for a better feel, increased stiffness and enhanced control. Honda introduced the EPS system on the hard-working Honda Foreman line in 2007, and it’s been a dependable, smart feature since then.
Want to be more hands-on with the shifting? The TRX500FPE FourTrax with Electric Shift Program (ESP) mode provides riders with electronic push-button shifting using the large buttons on the left handlebar. With the ESP mode, you’ll notice the shift occurring much faster and resulting in a smoother transition. Thanks to Honda’s exclusive ESP system, upshifting and downshifting has never been so easy. The TRX500FPE FourTrax combines the ease of an automatic with the strength of a conventional transmission. And because there’s no foot-shift lever, ESP is also a bonus when riding in heavy or mud/snow-covered boots. It’s another great example of how choosing Honda means you’re getting the best utility ATV you could ever hope to.
