Offering plenty of power and torque in the midrange, the SCL500 features a 471cc, liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine. Light, narrow, and powerful, it just strikes the perfect balance of what a mid-sized motorcycle engine should be.
ABS comes standard on the SCL500, helping you make smoother, more controlled stops under less-than-ideal riding conditions.
We gave the SCL500 a unique upswept scrambler exhaust with a twin-outlet muffler that produces a wonderful sound. It’s a little thing, but it’ll make you smile every time you ride.
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.
The slipper/assist clutch lets us lighten up the clutch-lever effort by 30 percent compared to previous systems, but automatically locks up tight when you release it.
The SCL500 gets the scrambler look just right: high-mount muffler, 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels with wide rims, and a blacked-out engine and frame.
An easy-to-read LCD screen features a digital speedometer and more, including a clock, odometer, trip meter, real-time and average fuel consumption meters and illuminated engine diagnostic indicators.
With a clean, rough-and-ready look, the SCL500’s LED headlight and multi-facet reflector project plenty of light on the road for visibility.
Strong and stylish, the SCL500’s lightweight multi-spoke cast-aluminum wheels are easy to keep clean, look great, enhance handling and are another SCL500 feature that just makes sense.
The SCL500 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 width makes it easier to put your feet down flat at stoplights or in parking lots.
The SCL500 features a large single front disc brake so you get strong, predictable stopping power. The front-brake lever is also adjustable for a perfect fit.
A sophisticated chassis with Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension features a shock with nine-stage adjustable spring preload to increase riding comfort and handling. The shock absorber features large-diameter internals for even better damping characteristics and a smoother ride.
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.
A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. The SCL500’s diamond-shaped steel-tube mainframe connects to the engine with four mounts, offering a rock-solid foundation for superior ride and handling. It also contributes to the SCL500’s generous ground clearance.
