ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)
ABS now comes standard on the CB500F,
helping you make smoother, more controlled
stops under less-than-ideal conditions.
The slipper/assist clutch lets us lighten up
the clutch-lever e ort by 45 percent, but
automatically locks up tight when you release it.
The CB500F o ers a step seat with a low
height. Perfect for around-town riding or out in
the canyons, it also o ers plenty of room for a
passenger and is specially designed to t a wide
range of riders.
The new 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 a Gear Position indicator.
DOHC TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
DOHC TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and
the CB500F’s engine is one of our best ever.
With plenty of low-end horsepower and torque,
this parallel-twin o ers accessible performance
across all RPM ranges.
Full LED Lighting
Full LED lighting gives the CB500F a contemporary edge. It’s also more efficient, which means it makes less of a demand on the electrical system and causes less drag on the engine.
Mass Centralised Design
The CB500F is designed around the concept of mass centralisation. The heavier parts of the bike, including the engine, are placed as close together as possible toward the centre of the machine, substantially improving steering and handling.
Emergency Stop Signal
The CB500F is equipped with Honda’s Emergency Stop Signal to instantaneously warn other drivers in the event of sudden braking. The ABS modulator detects abrupt braking at speeds of 56km/h or more and automatically activates the front and rear hazard lights to warn any nearby vehicles.
