2016 TRX500 Foreman Overview

Honda's hardest working ATV is popular with both commercial fleet buyers and recreational riders who are looking for a basic, yet capable, machine. The TRX500 Foreman has all the componentry needed to get the job done or tackle the toughest trails without the luxury features that drive up cost and complexity. The proven sideways-mounted OHV engine offers an exceptionally low centre of gravity and features a foot-shifted five-speed manual transmission with auto clutch. The engine and transmission are complimented by a shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive system that allows easy shifting between 2WD and 4WD and has a diff lock mode that locks the front differential for true all-wheel drive. The durable steel chassis is just as well thought-out with oversized steel racks front and rear that offer multiple tie down options for maximum load versatility. A rugged weather-proof electrical system is also up to the task with full instrumentation to help ensure riders stay well informed as well as a powerful 481 watt alternator providing lots of excess output to power personal electronics. Tough as it is, the TRX500 Foreman is surprisingly comfortable with adjustable, long travel-suspension at both ends and a broad plush seat for long days in the saddle.

Respected on the job site and a legend on the trails, the TRX500 Foreman just keeps going.

The Honda ATV Advantage

At Honda, innovation isn’t just a buzzword. Innovation is the driving force behind every product we engineer. Take a moment to learn about the Honda ATV advantage.

Why Buy a Honda ATV?

When you ride a Honda ATV, you know you’re aboard a machine that has been built without compromise, and backed by more than 30 years of experience. You know you’re riding the best.

Honda Advantage Technologies

Here are just a few examples of the advanced engineering and outside-the-box thinking that have made Honda ATVs the trusted choice of so many Canadian riders. For more than 30 years.

Bigger Isn’t Better

At Honda, we still think an ATV should be small enough to load easily into a pickup truck, and light enough that you ride it, it doesn’t drive you. The lighter the ATV, the faster it can accelerate and the quicker it can stop. A lighter ATV also corners with more precision and stays more composed over bumpy terrain. Lighter weight also means less stress on the engine and chassis components, so durability is improved.

Tough Transmissions

Honda ATVs feature a range of transmissions that are durable, highly resistant to dirt and water damage, and have no drive belts to burn out and replace. Our continuously variable, fully automatic Hondamatic™ transmission (available on the TRX500PG Canadian Trail Edition Rubicon) is the smoothest ATV transmission you'll ever experience. The three-speed Honda Automatic transmission (an automotive-style torque converter) is available on our TRX680F Rincon. And the TRX420PG Canadian Trail Edition uses the quick shifting Honda twin-clutch, five-speed automatic transmission.

Smart Engine Orientation

Longitudinal engine mounting not only improves powertrain efficiency and cuts weight, it also allows more leeway to position the engine precisely where it provides the best machine balance and centre of gravity. The result? Weight is divided more equally over all four wheels, which improves manoeuvrability, cornering, braking, traction... you name it. Today, you’ll find this simply ingenious example of sideways thinking on all Honda’s Utility and Recreation ATVs.

Cleaner Braking

The brakes on an ATV take a beating. Water, ice, dust, mud, rocks and branches, plus pounding over rough terrain, can all interfere with the operation and the lifespan of ATV brake components. That’s why Honda engineers took special care in the design and construction of our powerful front disc brakes. Each brake caliper features a patented built-in scraper system to help keep mud, snow, and debris from building up inside the wheels, giving you consistent brake performance in variable conditions.
