honda 2021 CB500F

Back

One look. It takes just one look for your entire body to become one with the CB500F. It was built for you and you know it. You smile. You radiate confidence, boosted by the bike’s stripped-down, aggressive silhouette and fierce styling. The road is wide open. And all yours.

EASY HANDLING
Balance, easy handling, control: we’ve thought of everything so you’re free to have all the fun you can handle. The CB500F features a steel diamond-tube frame with a tuned rigidity balance to enhance feedback. The engine is close to the swingarm pivot point to make handling as simple as possible. The tapered handlebars add control.

ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION
When you’re on the road, you just want to focus on enjoying the journey. That’s why the CB500F features 41mm telescopic forks, delivering a smooth and controlled ride. The Pro-Link monoshock rear suspension features a 5-stage spring pre-load adjustment and works through a rigid box-section swingarm. Control, adjustability, thrill: this bike has it all.

LIGHTWEIGHT WHEELS
The CB500F was built to give any rider the perfect balance between good grip and light, neutral steering. Lightweight 17-inch cast aluminium wheels feature hollow cross-section Y-shaped spokes. The front tyre is a 120/70-ZR17, the rear a 160/60-ZR17. There's not an ounce of excess weight on this tight, streamlined motorcycle – it’s all speed.

BRAKING CONTROL
Whether you’re riding in the rain or on a dry summer day, the CB500F is equipped to provide you with unmatched braking control. A single front 320mm wavy disc and powerful two-piston brake caliper is matched to a 240mm rear disc and single-piston caliper. Dual channel ABS is fitted as standard. The road is your playground. Enjoy it.

INFORMATION DISPLAY
The CB500F comes equipped with an attractive negative-display LCD dash that presents all the information you need in a clear and concise way. It includes a speedo and rev-counter, dual trip meters, fuel level and consumption gauges, and Shift Up and Gear Position indicators.

PURE FORM

Pure thrill. Undiluted.

The CB500F is motorcycling stripped back to its purest state. The tightly-wrapped, aggressive style shows off the machine’s parallel twin-cylinder engine and wide, tapered handlebars give it a streetfighter’s signature. The sculpted fuel tank cuts down on bulk, and provides ample capacity, allowing you more time on the road. And sharp new graphics stand out from the stunning paint, whatever colour you choose.

MOVING UP

The best of both worlds.

Rapidly accelerating from a standing start at a traffic light, or racing through the slick six-speed gearbox at high rpm out on the open road: the CB500F offers you an infinite new playground.
