Foreman 520 FA6
The new boss is here. The TRX520FA6 is Honda’s flagship ATV and with the new 518cc engine it now has even more power and torque to perform all the big tasks on farm. The exciting news though is a revised transmission which monitors engine rpm in real time to offer smooth, seamless shifting in auto mode.
The automatic dual-clutch transmission (DCT) features both automatic and manual modes, a hi-low range sub transmission and a new reverse switch to simplify the transition into and out of reverse. The improved engine RPM sensing system offers smoother and more seamless shifting between gears and there’s also an override capability to allow manual shifting even when in automatic mode - giving the rider a new level of control and making it possible to downshift on corner entry or upshift manually.
In the looks department, the FA6 sports a redesigned grill and front bumper for a more aggressive, stylised look. It also comes with a handy new utility box and new carry rack design. New guards extend the full length of the lower suspension arms for full coverage of the driveshaft and outboard CV joints for even more under body protection. With a front diff lock and massive 600kg towing capacity this bike is made to tackle the big jobs.
