Introduction

The naked CB500F – originally launched in 2013 alongside the adventure-styled CB500X and fully-faired CBR500R – has proved that one of Honda’s tried-and-trusted formulas for building popular motorcycles has lost none of its relevance.

Building on the theme for 2019 the CB500F is redrawn with uncompromising lines that further elevate its technical and mechanical aspects, plus a host of upgrades that enhance the riding experience even more.

 

Model Overview

The CB500F has evolved for 2019 and now wears aggressive bodywork to create a more muscular wedge-like muscularity. Tapered handlebars add further riding feel. New LCD instruments feature a Shift Up and Gear Position function and the indicators are now LED, to match the rest of the lighting.

And while the CB500F’s engine maintains the 35kW required for A2 licence holders it now makes 4% more power and torque between 3-7,000rpm, thanks to revisions to the inlet, exhaust and valve timing. The new dual-exit exhaust muffler emits an enhanced exhaust note; the engine now also features an assist/slipper clutch.

The chassis is unchanged, but a new rear single-tube shock absorber delivers consistent damping performance and improved control.
