The CB500F is an aggressively-styled street-fighter; it’s one of Honda’s tried-and-trusted formulas, with uncompromising lines that further elevate its technical and mechanical aspects. The CB500F has an entertaining twin-cylinder engine wrapped in a simple, lightweight, sporty chassis, which can be as much fun for a veteran rider as it is for those still building their riding experience. Compact dimensions and welcoming manners make it a great tool for learning plus sensible running costs are ideal for commuting. Those same attributes also make it a genuine pleasure for weekend outings along sweeping winding roads.

Design

Steel-tube frame

A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. Stronger and lighter, the CB500F’s diamond-shaped 35mm steel-tube mainframe ties to the engine with four mounts, offering a rock-solid foundation for a superior ride and handling.

Cast wheels

Strong and stylish, the CB500F’s Y-spoke cast-aluminium wheels are easy to keep clean, look great and are another CB500F feature that just makes sense.
A sophisticated chassis with Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension, nine-stage preload and 120mm of travel give you a comfortable ride over small bumps, while capably absorbing bigger bumps to increase riding comfort and handling.

Anti-lock braking system

Our Anti-Lock Braking System can be a big help in making controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions, like on wet pavement or other compromised surfaces. It’s a great choice whether you’re using your new bike as a commuter or just riding it for fun, since it helps you stop with added confidence.

Step seat

The CB500F offers a step seat with a low height. Perfect for around-town riding or out on winding roads, it also offers plenty of room for a passenger and is specially designed to fit a variety of riders.

Passenger handholds

Sturdy passenger handholds provide security for your passenger or tie-down points for smaller items.

Unique style

Less is more when it comes to the CB500F. With its lean, progressive style, the CB500F is a motorcycle that looks great while still providing incredible value and performance.

Compact exhaust

The CB500F’s compact exhaust system has a twin-outlet muffler and large-diameter pipes that put out a pleasing exhaust note.

Engineering

DOHC twin-cylinder engine

Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the CB500F’s engine is one of our best ever. With increased low-end horsepower and torque this year, the parallel-twin offers accessible performance across all RPM ranges.

Programmed fuel injection

The CB500F’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.

Slipper-assist clutch

A slipper/assist clutch lightens up the clutch-lever effort and automatically locks up tight when you release it.

Digital instrumentation

A new, modern, easy-to-read 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.

LED lighting

Dual-lens LED headlight and LED tail and braking lights further highlight the CB500F’s street machine styling, projecting plenty of light for optimum visibility.
