Honda has announced that it is upgrading one of its most popular ATVs, with the exciting new model due to hit showroom floors this August.
The manufacturer’s workhorse range has earned a sterling reputation for going the distance and the new TRX500FA7 is set to be no exception.
Set apart as the only Honda ATV available in sleek white paint and now featuring aluminium wheels, the 2016 TRX is the ultimate off-road partner.
With a strong 475cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine, versatile chassis, independent rear suspension and a price of $13,999, the new ATV ticks all the boxes.
The TRX’s 500-class engine is specially tuned for the perfect balance of torque and power, and thanks to the addition of Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection system the ATV’s throttle response is as smooth as it is broad.
The extensively-developed double-cradle steel frame chassis offers a great ride, while electric power steering boosts the motorcycle’s responsive handling.
The TRX500FA7’s independent rear suspension (IRS) has been finely tuned to get the most out of the ATV, aided by the adjustable spring preload feature on all shocks which allows the suspension to be easily tuned to match loads and riding conditions.
The new TRX also boasts Honda’s innovative automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). With the best of both worlds fully covered, the DCT provides the strength of a manual transmission with the convenience of an automatic transmission, while still giving the rider the option of push-button manual control via Honda’s Electric Shift Program.
Honda’s automatic DCT features an advanced dual shift-mapping program that automatically selects between two transmission shifting modes depending on how the rider uses the throttle.
The TRX500FA7 is set to raise the bar in the ATV market with bold styling and state-of-the-art design features that have been specially designed to make the tough jobs easier.
