ALL-NEW ENGINE

The 500cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin DOHC engine is thoroughly modern in design and produces a broad power spread for enjoyable and economical riding. Four-valve cylinder head design uses lightweight rocker-arm valve actuation with shim-type valve adjustment.

Programmed Fuel Injection (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.

An engine counterbalancer and 180-degree crankpin reduce engine vibration for superior rider comfort.

SUSPENSION & CHASSIS

The Diamond-shaped 35mm steel tube frame is lightweight and rigid for responsive sport handling and the stout 41mm front fork with 125mm's of travel returns a plush yet controlled ride.

While the sophisticated Pro-Link® single-shock rear suspension offers nine-stage spring preload adjustability and 118mm's of controlled travel.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Honda's Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is standard on the CB500X, ensuring enhanced braking characteristics in less than ideal conditions. While the lightweight cast aluminum wheels, 120/70-17 in front and 160/60-17 rear, return a sporting feel and handling traits.

The wide handlebars are designed specifically to fit the adventure-style rider ergonomics. With an amber-tinted instrument display features speedometer, tachometer, odometer/A&B tripmeters, fuel gauge, clock, mpg, average fuel consumption, and current fuel consumption you're ready to tackle any adventure.

The CB500X is available in Australia in Pearl Horizon White, Matte Fresco Brown or Candy Ruby Red. Please note images show overseas models, colours may vary.
