FEEL FREE TO BE FREE

This is freedom. Released from the day-to-day, to travel by motorcycle is to explore yourself, as well as the world around you. You’re moving, too. With a fresh A2 licence, ready for a new adventure on the CB500X. Each journey is unique. In the city or far beyond there’s always something different around the next corner. And there’s no better feeling.

CB500X The Start of the Journey

If You're Ready So Is The CB500X

You know where you want to go next. And the CB500X is a perfect travel partner. Compact crossover styling gives a comfortable, upright riding position (seat height is just 830mm) ready for long days in the saddle or the daily commute. There’s plenty of range from the 17.5L fuel tank, effective wind deflection from the fairing and screen, while wide handlebars give plenty of low-speed control, perfect for trickling through busy traffic.

Supreme Control Wherever You Go

If you’re riding smooth or rough, new Showa 41mm Separate Function Fork Big Piston (SFF-BP) USD forks split spring from damping and provide excellent suspension reaction and control. The Showa rear shock has revised spring rate and damping, while new lightweight wheels and swingarm – plus more forward-set weight bias – ensure quick steering and stability and likewise new, dual 296mm discs are worked by two-piston calipers, giving more braking power with no gain in inertia.

Plenty Of Torque On Tap

You’ll be amazed by what this twin-cylinder A2-compliant engine can do. Of course, peak power is set at 35kW but peak torque of 43Nm – delivered at just 6,500rpm – ensures muscular bottom- and mid-range performance, just what you need for swift overtaking, especially when carrying a pillion or loaded up. And, for precise control of the six-speed gearbox, an Assist/Slipper clutch eases upshifts and manages rear wheel lock-up under hard braking and rapid downshifting.

A Cockpit Set Out For Adventure

The negative LCD instruments feature a speedo, bar graph rev-counter, dual trip meters, fuel level/consumption gauge as well as Gear Position and Shift Up indicators. All lighting is full LED with the headlight featuring optimised high/low beams. For extra visibility to other road users the front indicators are also now position lights.
