All new and even better. The TRX500FM is the absolute master of farm ATV’s. For 2014 it is totally redesigned with features to make hard-work much easier. 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.
