VALUE MEETS PERFORMANCE
One bike could never be all things to all people. But the Honda CB500F comes close. It's a great choice for a wide range of riders, sporting minimal bodywork, a classic riding position, and our inspired 500-class parallel twin engine. So whether you're ready to move up in displacement size, or you can simply recognize a great middleweight motorcycle, the CB500F should be in your sights.
DOHC TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the CB500F engine is one of our best ever. Using the same piston bore size as our CBR600RR sportbike, the parallel-twin engine offers accessible performance across all RPM ranges.
PROGRAMMED FUEL INJECTION (PGM-FI)
PGM-FI continuously monitors several variables to ensure the correct fuel mixture is delivered for the existing riding and atmospheric conditions for crisp throttle response throughout a wide variety of riding conditions.
Less is more when it comes to the CB500F. With its classic, clean, progressive style, the CB500F is a motorcycle that looks great while still providing incredible value and performance.
The CB500F’s compact exhaust system is a perfect example of the bike’s overall philosophy. It’s compact, it looks great, and it sounds awesome too, with a crisp exhaust note you’re going to love.
ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)
Available ABS on the CB500F helps you make smoother, more controlled stops under less-than-ideal conditions.
Strong and stylish, the CB500F’s 12-spoke cast-aluminum wheels are easy to keep clean, look great, and are another CB500F feature that just makes sense.
A full LCD blue-tinted screen features a digital speedometer and tachometer and more, including a clock, odometer, trip meter, real-time and average fuel consumption meters, and illuminated engine diagnostic indicators.
The front 320mm disc brake and 240mm rear provide strong stopping power.
The CB500F’s LED headlight gives the front end a cutting-edge look and also projects plenty of light on the road for visibility.
PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION
A sophisticated chassis with Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension, nine-stage preload, and 4.7 inches of travel give you a comfortable ride over small bumps, while capably absorbing bigger bumps to increase riding comfort and handling.
A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. A take on a classic construction, the CB500F’s diamond-shaped 35mm steel-tube mainframe ties to the engine with four mounts, offering a rock-solid foundation for a superior ride and handling.
The CB500F offers a step seat with a low height. Perfect for around-town riding or out in the canyons, it also offers plenty of room for a passenger and is specially designed to fit a wide range of riders.
Sturdy rear passenger grips offer a firm handhold for your passenger or tie-down points for smaller items.
