2016 Honda TRX500 .... model codes?

Looking through the 2016 Honda Sales brochure .... specifically for the TRX500 Foreman.
There is no mention of what model the 'codes' are for .... eg. FM1, FM5, etc.
I've been quoted a price on each of these models, but I'm unable to see what TRX500 they refer to.
Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
MM

Good luck figuring it out! Jokerswild is close but no cigar. Mine is a FM7, FOOTSHIFT, I want to say the DCT Deluxe models were FA6. FA are automatic, FM are footshift, FE are electric shift. Basically the lower the numbers the less options...

I have a Rubicon. It is White. It has big tires. I like my Can-am better.....when it works.

What does your FM7 have that FM6 doesn't? The Rims, painted springs, arms and so on? Like a manual deluxe?

Yeah that's right. They stopped making them for 2017 though.
