EVOCATIVE EXHAUST NOTE

A free-flowing airbox feeds the PGM-FI fuel injection process, and the exhaust system gets rid of spent gases quickly and effectively. The muffler’s internal chamber has been engineered for efficiency, but also tuned to add a crisp, evocative note to the riding experience.

BRAKING CONTROL

Without control, power is useless. The CB500X features a single front 310mm wavy disc and powerful two-piston brake caliper matched to a 240mm rear disc and single-piston caliper. Dual channel ABS is fitted as standard, so you can easily manage braking force in wet or dry conditions.

EASY HANDLING

Adventure is all about infinite freedom. But freedom is meaningless if your ride is uncomfortable. The CB500X’s steel diamond-tube frame has a tuned rigidity balance to enhance feedback. The engine is close to the swingarm pivot point for easy handling and, the seat height is 830mm, which makes the riding position upright and relaxed, offering excellent forward visibility and control.

LONG TRAVEL SUSPENSION


Whether you want to take a brief trip through the rough city streets, or explore the endless vistas of the open road, the CB500X is ready. Its 41mm telescopic forks and Pro-Link rear monoshock offer smooth, extended travel to absorb hits. Both are adjustable for spring pre-load, tailoring the steering geometry to accommodate a pillion and full luggage.

TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE

The 8-valve, liquid-cooled parallel twin-cylinder engine produces 35Kw @ 8500rpm – making it A2 licence compliant – with peak torque of 43.2Nm @ 6500rpm. So you’ve plenty of low- and mid-range torque for fast acceleration when you need it.

INFORMATION DISPLAY

When you’re exploring the open road, you need a clear, concise information panel. The CB500X features an attractive negative-display LCD dash to keep you entertained. Information includes a speedo and rev-counter, dual trip meters, fuel level and consumption gauges and Gear Position and Shift Up indicators.

TOUGH ABILITY

This is a bike designed to handle any kind of terrain. There’s plenty of ground clearance for tough performance on rough roads, and the wide turning angle of the handlebars give you outstanding handling. A 19-inch front wheel improves stability and roll-over ability, and block-pattern tyres ensure tenacious grip and feedback. The raised windscreen keeps you protected for a more enjoyable ride
