Features

Comfort

  • TALL WINDSCREEN: The CB500X’s windscreen offers superior wind protection.
  • STEP SEAT: The CB500X seat gives you an open, unrestricted riding position that’s perfect for both touring and commuting, and that still offers room for a passenger. The seat’s narrow shoulders make it easier to put your feet down at stoplights or in parking lots.

Engineering

  • DOHC TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE: Offering plenty of power and torque in the midrange, the CB500X’s 471cc, liquid-cooled engine features parallel cylinder engines with dual overhead cams. Light, narrow, and powerful, it just strikes the perfect balance of what a mid-sized motorcycle engine should be.
  • EXHAUST: Who doesn’t love the sound of a twin-cylinder motorcycle? We gave the muffler on the CB500X twin exit pipes. It’s a little thing, but it’ll make you smile every time you ride.
  • PROGRAMMED FUEL INJECTION PGM-FI: The injector bodies help the CB500X make even more power. The bike’s 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.
  • SLIPPER ASSIST CLUTCH: The slipper/assist clutch lets us lighten up the clutch-lever effort by 45 percent, but automatically locks up tight when you release it.

Handling

  • LONG-TRAVEL FRONT SUSPENSION: The long-stroke 41mm fork yields 5.3 inches of travel. A wide handlebar allows for easy steering inputs.
  • DISC BRAKES: The front 320mm disc brake and 240mm rear feature drilled, petal-style rotors that provide strong stopping power.
  • PRO-LINK REAR SUSPENSION: A sophisticated chassis with Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension, with 9-stage spring preload and 5.9 inches of travel gives you a comfortable ride over small bumps, while capably absorbing bigger bumps to increase riding comfort and handling. The shock absorber features large-diameter internals for even better damping characteristics and a smoother ride.
  • SMOOTHER TRANSMISSION: Our engineers profiled the shift dogs in the transmission, to help you get smoother shifts every time. You’ll never see these parts, but you’ll feel their effects.
  • STEEL-TUBE FRAME: A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. The CB500X’s diamond-shaped steel-tube mainframe ties to the engine with four mounts, offering a rock-solid foundation for superior ride and handling. It also contributes to the CB500X’s generous 7.1-inch ground clearance.

Style

  • UNIQUE STYLE: Like your favorite blue jeans, the CB500X just looks right—tough, capable, no-nonsense. Plus, the adventure-bike posture and seating position let you move around freely—just like your jeans!
  • DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION: A fresh, modern, easy-to-read LCD screen features 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 LIGHTING: With a clean, rough-and-ready look, the CB500X’s LED headlight and multi-facet reflector project plenty of light on the road for visibility.
  • MULTI-SPOKE CAST WHEELS: Strong and stylish, the CB500X’s lightweight multi-spoke cast-aluminum wheels—19-inch diameter in front and 17-inch rear—are easy to keep clean, look great, enhance handling and are another CB500X feature that just makes sense.
