HONDA TRX 500 – FOREMAN

HEAVY HITTER

The ATV that just loves to get stuck in.

The Foreman is a heavy-hitting ATV built for hard work and hauling big loads – day in, day out.

Engine

475cc

Fuel-injected liquid-cooled

Transmission

Manual,
Auto, ESP

Options

IRS / Power
Steering

Towing Capacity

UP TO 600kg

An engine that’s always good for the job.

The engine is longitudinally-mounted. With the crankshaft in line with the frame you get direct driveshaft alignment to the wheels, improved drivetrain efficiency and a low centre of gravity. And it’s a major contributor to great stability, handling and balance. All features you expect of a Honda ATV.

Leaving nothing to chance

Big loads, long days – no problem.  Some days you feel like it’s all uphill. Lucky you’ve got the Foreman working for you. The low-down torque from the liquid cooled engine lets you tackle the really rough terrain, as well as those big towing jobs. Experience has taught you well and you know one thing above all else – you can rely on a Foreman.

Adjust your ride

The massively strong steel swingarm allows 185mm rear wheel travel. Adjustable spring preload ensures well-controlled power delivery as well as increased comfort, precision and work capability.

Difference in detail

It’s Honda’s careful attention to detail that sets our ATVs apart from the rest.
