CB500X

THE CITY IS THE NEW WILD.

The CB500X is for the free-spirited, those who want to conquer the urban jungle. With its powerful two-cylinder engine and long-travel suspension, it was built for your adventures.

FACTOR X

A free-spinning two-cylinder engine turns the CB500X into a dynamic machine capable of taking on any adventure. Get ready for an unforgettable journey. The CB500X retains and enhances the comfort pioneered by its predecessor to give you a smooth ride while urban commuting or high-speed cruising and also incorporates new features that make cruising dirt roads just as enjoyable. (Best heard with headphones.)

Details matter

Take a closer look at the unique features that make CB500X the stuff of legend.

THERE’S A WORLD OUT THERE

Make your mark on it.

The CB500X has a tough new look that exudes adventure. Inspired by the Africa Twin, it blends rugged lines with an aggressive stance, and the tall screen offers comfort.

COMPACT POWERHOUSE

And all-round performer.

The CB500X features the engine you need to explore on any type of road. Powerful, agile and efficient even on longer journeys: it gives you the freedom you’ve been dreaming of. And just like its larger CBR siblings, an Assist/Slipper Clutch eases upshifts and manages the rear wheel lock-up on hard down changes.

ADJUSTABLE CONTROL

For the long haul.

The CB500X features a new inverse-display LCD dash with Gear Position indicator. Tapered aluminium handlebars offer leverage and complete handling control, and full LED lighting, including indicators, is a premium finishing touch. The long travel 41mm telescopic forks are adjustable for spring pre-load, as is the Pro-Link rear monoshock.
