Overview

Honda CB500X

Adventure Starts Here.

Any Honda could be called an adventure bike, but the CB500X takes the idea to extremes. This is a motorcycle ready for around-town errand-running and commuting, but it’s also just as ready for canyon carving. You can take adventure to the next level because the CB500X is equipped with an adjustable windscreen, larger fuel tank and perhaps most important, a generous amount of suspension travel—enough to take you off the pavement and onto the kind of dirt roads you might find on your travels. Ergonomically, the CB500X gives you wide handlebars and a classic upright seating position so you always feel in control.

Bulletproof Twin-Cylinder Engine.

Displacing 471cc’s, liquid cooled and featuring parallel cylinders with dual overhead cams, the CB500X powerplant is very efficient, especially with its performance-maximizing electronic Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI). Naturally, it shares Honda’s reassuring reputation for reliability.

Ride Ready For Adventure.

Utilizing a classic upright riding position with a wide handlebar, taller seat and a tighter knees-in fuel tank design, you can maximize your feeling of oneness with the bike and the road.

Honda CB500X

Adjustable Windscreen
The windscreen on the CB500X is manually adjustable up to 40mm for optimal wind protection.

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.

Halogen Headlight
A single 60-watt H4 halogen headlight and multi-facet reflector on the CB500X give the front end a unique look and also project plenty of light on the road for visibility.

Long-Travel Front Suspension
The long stroke 41mm front fork yields a full 5.5" of travel, and a wide handlebar allows for easy steering inputs.

Disc Brakes
The front 320mm wave-style disc brake and 240mm rear provides strong stopping power.

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.

Unique Style
The CB500X is a lightweight, dynamic motorcycle that offers adventure style with an upright riding position. While not a dual-sport, the new CB500X still has the posture of an adventure machine with a unique fuel tank design that offers the ability to freely move the body weight.

Programmed Fuel-Injection (PGM-FI)
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.

Lower Cowl
The CB500X is equipped with a lower cowl to help protect the exhaust pipe and engine from debris when riding on rough surfaces. Air intakes are incorporated into the design to provide effective cooling.

DOHC Twin Cylinder Engine
Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the new 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.

Steel-Tube Frame
A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. A new 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.

Step Seat
The new 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.

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

Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
Available ABS on the CB500X helps you make smoother, more controlled stops under less-than-ideal conditions.
