Engine & Drivetrain
  • Maximum efficiency
    Powerful liquid-cooled 475 cc four-stroke engine is longitudinally mounted, allowing direct driveshaft alignment to both front and rear wheels for maximum drivetrain efficiency. Overhead-valve design provides compact engine dimensions for improved ground clearance while maintaining a broad, easy-to-use powerband.
  • Reduced vibration
    Rubber-cushion engine mounting and gear-driven counter-balancer reduce vibration.
  • Quick start, powerful output
    Convenient electric starting, with an automatic internal-decompression system, gets you going quickly and easily. Powerful AC generator has generous capacity with 481 watts of output.
  • Fuel efficient
    Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system improves power delivery and throttle response, and increases fuel efficiency for extended range.
  • Excellent drivability
    Super-heavy-duty automatic clutch with low-rpm engagement for excellent drivability and towing capacity. Rugged five-speed transmission with ultra-low first gear features manual foot shifting with automatic clutch.
  • 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.
  • Quiet operation
    Stainless-steel exhaust system includes a USDA-qualified spark arrester/muffler designed for quiet operation without servicing for long-lasting performance.
Chassis & Suspension
  • Lightweight strength
    Durable double-cradle steel frame developed with Computer Aided Engineering is both rigid and lightweight for precise handling and a smoother ride.
  • Controlled ride
    Durable double-cradle steel frame developed with Computer Aided Engineering is both rigid and lightweight for precise handling and a smoother ride.
  • Controlled ride
    Front and rear suspension both offer 185 mm (7.3 in.) 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.
  • Impressive handling
    Enclosed-axle swingarm offers optimized stiffness for improved toughness and excellent handling performance. Rubber swingarm pivot bushings provide excellent low-speed ride comfort and increased durability.
  • Optimal ground clearance
    Generous ground clearance of 191 mm (7.5 in.) allows you to ride over rugged terrain with ease.
  • Engineered tough
    Plastic CV joint boots are durable and tear-resistant. Sealed steering-knuckle bearings improve steering performance and durability.
  • Stopping power
    Rear drum brake is located inside the right rear wheel for improved durability and increased ground clearance. Dual front hydraulic disc brakes with large 190 mm rotors provide strong and consistent stopping power.
Additional Features
  • Protective bodywork
    Durable bodywork provides excellent mud and debris protection. Full-length synthetic lower skidplate with integrated front brush guard protects against damage from rocks, sticks and other obstacles. One-piece tank/side cover allows easy access for maintenance with no tools required.
  • Great visibility
    Twin-headlight system features 35-watt headlights with focused light distribution for improved visibility after dark. Top assist light operates independently of front headlights so it can be turned off while carrying a load on the front carrier.
  • Automobile technology
    The fuel pump derived from Honda automobile technology is mounted in the fuel tank for better heat isolation and increased filter life.
  • Intuitive display
    Full-function instrumentation gives the dash a modern look while providing information at a glance. There’s even a Maintenance Minder system that notifies when it’s time for service.
  • Superior comfort
    Seat padding is both thick and soft for excellent comfort.
  • Towing ability
    Load capacity for front and rear carriers is 40 kg (88 lbs.) and 80 kg (176 lbs.) respectively. The heavy-duty trailer hitch has a 385 kg (848 lbs.) towing capacity.
  • Multi-functional
    A host of optional accessories allow you to tailor your TRX500 to your needs.
