Description

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.

FEATURES

PERFORMANCE

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.

STYLE

UNIQUE STYLE

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.

NEW EXHAUST

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.

HANDLING

ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)

Available ABS on the CB500F helps you make smoother, more controlled stops under less-than-ideal conditions.

DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION

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.

LED HEADLIGHT

The CB500F’s LED headlight gives the front end a cutting-edge look and also projects plenty of light on the road for visibility.

STEEL-TUBE FRAME

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.

CAST WHEELS

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.

DISC BRAKES

The front 320mm disc brake and 240mm rear provide strong stopping power.

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.

COMFORT

STEP SEAT

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.

REAR GRIPS

Sturdy rear passenger grips offer a firm handhold for your passenger or tie-down points for smaller items.
