Features

Innovations

  • LED HEADLIGHT: The CB500F’s LED headlight gives the front end a cutting-edge look and also projects plenty of light on the road for visibility.
  • DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION: A full LCD blue-tinted screen features a digital speedometer and tachometer and more, including a clock, odometer, trip meter, real-time and average fuel consumption meters, and illuminated engine diagnostic indicators.
  • UNIQUE STYLE: Less is more when it comes to the CB500F. With its classic, clean, progressive style, the CB500F is a motorcycle that looks great while still providing incredible value and performance.
  • DOHC TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE: Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the CB500F 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.
  • 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.
  • STEEL-TUBE FRAME: A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. A take on a classic construction, the CB500F’s diamond-shaped 35 mm steel-tube mainframe ties to the engine with four mounts, offering a rock-solid foundation for a superior ride and handling.
  • PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION: A sophisticated chassis with Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension, nine-stage preload, and 4.7 inch travel give you a comfortable ride over small bumps, while capably absorbing bigger bumps to increase riding comfort and handling.
  • STEP SEAT: The CB500F offers a step seat with a low height. Perfect for around-town riding or out in the canyons, it also offers plenty of room for a passenger and is specially designed to fit a wide range of riders.
  • DISC BRAKES: The front 320 mm wave-style disc brake and 240 mm rear provide strong stopping power.
  • CAST WHEELS: Strong and stylish, the CB500F’s 12-spoke cast-aluminum wheels are easy to keep clean, look great, and are another CB500F feature that just makes sense.
  • REAR GRIPS: Sturdy rear passenger grips offer a firm handhold for your passenger or tie-down points for smaller items.
  • TRIM EXHAUST: The CB500F’s compact exhaust system is a perfect example of the bike’s overall philosophy. It’s compact, it looks great, and it sounds awesome too, with a crisp exhaust note you’re going to love.
