MOTORGUIDE X5 Freshwater Bow-Mount Trolling Motor

The new X5 bow mount, cable steer motor – the latest in MotorGuide's growing lineup of X series motors – is one of the most advanced, tournament-caliber motors. It’s engineered to deliver best in class performance for quiet operation, rugged durability, and precise control.

Serious anglers will be impressed with the X5’s solid construction and patented Variable Ratio Steering (VRS) technology. This innovation allows anglers to make subtle and precise steering adjustments, and it virtually eliminates torque steering feedback that can compromise boat stability and control.

Using premium, high strength materials, the X5 uses inventive design solutions to ensure long term, quiet operation while fishing or stowing and deploying. Composite bushings also reduce noise.
