Better Than Ever for 2016.

Honda’s twin-cylinder sportbikes revolutionized the world of motorcycling when they first appeared, and this latest generation—our 500 twins—are the best ever. Here’s what you need to know about the CB500F: It’s the most broad-spectrum of the 500 family, with minimal bodywork, a classic riding position, and a 30.9-inch seat height that fits a wide range of riders. Even though it’s just a couple of years old, for 2016, it gets some tasty updates both in terms of style and function.

The best part stays the same: the powerful twin-cylinder engine and its wide, user-friendly powerband. But for 2016, you get better shift feel thanks to some transmission upgrades, an adjustable front-brake lever, a larger fuel tank, and preload-adjustable front suspension. And there’s more, too: The headlight and crisper style you can see for yourself, but the exhaust you’ll have to hear to appreciate.

The CB500F has always been an excellent choice for riders ready to move up a displacement class, or for anyone who appreciates a great middleweight motorcycle, and for 2016, it’s even better.

    Classic Riding Position

    You’ll appreciate the CB500F’s classic riding position—you can sit up straighter, without supporting your weight on your arms. It’s a great choice when you’re riding around town or commuting, and you can always tuck in tighter when you want to. Your passenger may find it more comfortable, too.

    An adjustable front-brake lever, better shift feel, a crisper exhaust note—just because the CB500F is a newer model doesn’t mean our engineers haven’t been working hard to make it even better.
