The CB500F is compact in size but punching way above its weight, it injects the adrenaline and excitement of full-sized motorcycle ownership into every ride. LAMS approved and known for its all-round agility, punchy performance and sensible running costs make it a great motorcycle with which to commute through the week and ride for pleasure at the weekend, whatever the rider’s experience level. The 2016 CB500F is a bold evolution that elevates the machine still further, with a shot of naked street-fighter style and rider-focussed upgrades that add more fun, pride of ownership and desirability.
All-new 500cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin DOHC engine is thoroughly modern in design and produces a broad power spread for enjoyable and economical riding.Four-valve cylinder head design uses lightweight rocker-arm valve actuation with shim-type valve adjustment.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
The styling concept behind the CB500F’s angular minimalism is ‘Mechanical & Aggressive’ with the compact headlight cowl and seat unit – and downsized bodywork – creating a condensed trapezoid form focused around the engine and frame. Small but efficient the LED headlight features position lights located in the upper left and right side, creating an assertive front-on presence. A character line and duct are carved into the speedometer case, adding a sharper edged appeal. Lightweight cast aluminum wheels, 120/70-17 in front and 160/60-17 rear, return sporting feel and handling traits. Front 320mm wave-style disc brake and 240mm rear provides strong stopping power. ABS is standard on the CB500F ensuring enhanced braking characteristics in less than ideal conditions. The comprehensive dash features a digital speedometer, digital bar graph tachometer, odometer, dual trip meters, clock, plus digital fuel level gauge and fuel consumption. HISS (Honda Intelligent Security System) is built in to the ignition; there’s space under the seat to store a U-lock.
