Who doesn’t love the sound of a twin-cylinder motorcycle? We gave the muffler on the CB500X twin exit pipes. It’s a little thing, but it’ll make you smile every time you ride.

Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)

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.


Adventure ready

The CB500X just looks tough, capable, no-nonsense. With its adventure-bike posture and seating position let you move around freely, the tall windscreen offers superior wind protection and the seat gives you an open, unrestricted riding position that’s perfect for both touring and commuting.

Steel-tube frame

A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. 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. It also contributes to the CB500X’s generous ground clearance.

The long-stroke 41mm fork yields 136mm of travel. A wide handlebar allows for easy steering inputs.

Pro-link rear suspension

Multi-spoke cast wheels

A fresh, 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
