Apart from an engine capacity hike from 475cc to 518cc, the new model has a number of developments that include heavier duty racks, improved guards for the driveshafts and a more powerful headlight.

It is the automatic DCT models, however, that see the greatest change with revised shift mapping for smoother gear changes and electronically engaged reverse that is much easier to use. The Fourtrax 420 also benefits from the new racks and guards, with the same changes for the automatic models too.

The revised models, which are available now, are priced from £6,425 for the entry-level for the TRX 420FM1 manual ATV with mono-shock rear suspension, the range topping automatic TRX520 FA6 with independent rear suspension retailing for £8,600 (all prices ex-VAT).

As standard, all models come with Datatool tracking with GPS technology that offers theft protection, instant notifications and full journey history logging. The system carries a subscription of £9.95 per month or £109 for a year (incl VAT).
