Just as redesigned and even more rewarding. The hard-working TRX500FPM matches the TRX500FM new-feature for new-feature, but adds Electric Power Steering (EPS) to create an ATV that is even easier to operate. Whether you're working on the farm or miles away from it, the EPS makes twisting and turning in tight quarters strain-free, stability over rugged terrain no sweat, and long hours on the saddle unnoticeable.
To provide unmatched reliability there are a host of developments including a chassis that is 20% stiffer than the previous model, new CV boots improve the durability of running gear, a revised swing-arm and new adjustable longer travel suspension add to the package. There is no question this ATV is built tough. New hard wearing body work gives the model a distinctive, no nonsense appearance. The 5-speed manual transmission with reverse is also built to last and designed to give you maximum control. Front diff lock will help this model crawl out of anywhere and with an improved weight carrying and towing capacity the 500FM simply works where other ATVs can't.
For New Zealand's demanding farming conditions the 475cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke, fuel-injected engine is committed to getting the job done. Just like you.
