INTRODUCING THE CB500X
THE ADVENTURE STARTS HERE
If you could use a little more adventure in your life—and who couldn’t?—the LAMS approved CB500X can deliver on that idea at a surprisingly affordable price. That's the beauty of owning an adventure-style bike like the CB500X; every time you look at this bike it just about begs you to take it out in search of new roads, undiscovered places and amazing sights to see. The CB500X is not just a great ride, it’s also equipped with a load of features that give it an extra dose of versatility.
Adventure-style seating position makes for unrestricted maneuvering and keeps the rider comfortable during adventure trips, commuting or short hops around town. Perfect for learner riders.
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
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.
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.
