ATV : 2018 RUBICON TRX500 DCT IRS EPS  

OVERVIEW

When Honda sets out to build the ultimate trail ATV you can be sure they will come up with something truly special. The TRX500 Rubicon DCT IRS EPS, a machine that captures all of Honda's best trail technology in a single package. The list of high-tech features is truly impressive; adjustable, long-travel Independent Rear Suspension (IRS), Electric Power Steering (EPS) with trail specific settings, Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI), Honda's revolutionary Dual-Clutch automaticTransmission (DCT) with a High/Low range sub-transmission, multi-mode 2WD/4WD system with locking front differential, inboard rear disc brake, Maxxis tires with an aggressive, trail-ready tread pattern – the list goes on. Adding to its trail credentials, the TRX500 Rubicon DCT IRS EPS also features a seat that is broader and thicker than previous model generations, which when combined with a roomier riding position and high comfort handgrips ensure that the Rubicon is supremely comfortable.

Knowing that trail ATVs are occasionally called upon to carry or pull heavy loads, Honda engineers designed, higher-rated racks with numerous tie down points and have an impressive 600 kg towing capacity. Other details that help round out the package include a powerful 470-watt alternator, a comprehensive electronic dashboard that includes a maintenance reminder, and a clever one-handed reverse selection mechanism that is simple to use. Immediately apparent from this array of technology is the fact that the TRX500 Rubicon is going to be incredibly comfortable, but that's only half the story; trail riders also demand that their machines handle well and the TRX500 Rubicon DCT IRS EPS delivers here too. The low centre of gravity (C of G) and excellent mass centralization generated by the unique sideways-mounted OHV engine work in harmony with the power steering system and the independent suspension with just the right amount of roll stiffness to create a machine that gives the rider a whole new level of confidence and control.

DCT - Dual-Clutch Transmission - A computer controlled, fully automatic, seamless shifting transmission with gear-on-gear efficiency and durability. DCT also allows operators to override automatic operation and shift gears manually via handlebar-mounted buttons.

IRS - Independent Rear Suspension - Rear wheels are able to travel up and down through their range of motion independently from each other, allowing them to more accurately follow terrain, improving traction, comfort and control.

EPS - Electric Power Steering - Reduces steering effort and also reduces handlebar kickback when wheels are deflected by obstacles, improving comfort and control.

PGM-FI (or EFI) - Programmed Electronic Fuel Injection - unlike conventional carburetors, fuel injection helps ensure trouble-free operation in the cold, at varying altitudes and also enhances fuel economy.
