ENGINEERING

DOHC TWIN CYLINDER ENGINE

Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the CB500X engine is one of our best ever. Using the same piston bore size as our CBR600RR sportbike, the parallel-twin engine offers accessible performance across all RPM ranges.

STYLE

UNIQUE STYLE

Adventure doesn’t have to mean bottomless mud pits a continent away. 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!

DESIGN

LED HEADLIGHT

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.

ADJUSTABLE WINDSCREEN

The CB500X’s windscreen offers superior wind protection, and is adjustable so you can fine-tune your cockpit environment.

DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION

An amber-tinted full 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.

HANDLING

LONG-TRAVEL FRONT SUSPENSION

The long stroke 41mm front fork yields a full 5.5 inches of travel, and a wide handlebar allows for easy steering inputs.

12-SPOKE CAST WHEELS

Strong and stylish, the CB500X’s lightweight 12-spoke cast-aluminum wheels—120/70-17 in front and 160/60-17 rear—are easy to keep clean, look great, enhance handling and are another CB500X feature that just makes sense.

DISC BRAKES

The front 320mm disc brake and 240mm rear provides strong stopping power.

PRO-LINK REAR SUSPENSION

A sophisticated chassis with Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension, with 9-stage preload and 4.7 inches of travel gives you a comfortable ride over small bumps, while capably absorbing bigger bumps to increase riding comfort and handling.

STEEL TUBE FRAME

A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. A take on a classic construction, 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.

COMFORT

STEP SEAT

The CB500X’s 32-inch seat height and unrestricted riding position offer freedom of movement for usage in both touring and commuting. You’ll find that it’s perfect for around-town riding and also offers plenty of room for a passenger.

PERFORMANCE

PROGRAMMED FUEL INJECTION (PGM-FI)

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.
