honda CB500F


 The CB500F joined Honda’s mid-sized line-up in 2013. Compact in size but punching way above its weight, it injects the adrenaline and excitement of full-sized motorcycle ownership into every ride for A2 licence-holders moving up from a 125cc; at the same time, 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.

In 2016 CB500F received a bold evolution that elevated the machine still further, with a shot of naked streetfight style and rider-focussed upgrades that added more fun, pride of ownership and desirability.
