Sometimes the road less travelled is also less paved; don’t let your choice of machine limit your motorcycling travel options. The CB500X allows you to seek adventure in more places with a number of refinements to the base 500 platform that increase its versatility. Longer travel front-suspension, longer wheelbase and greater ground clearance improve its rough road capability while a larger fuel tank, a narrow fairing with adjustable windshield and the super smooth counterbalanced engine help you relax on your journey to the middle of nowhere. The upright seating position gives you a commanding view of the road ahead and the leverage provided by the wide handlebars enhances your feeling of control. Rounding out the package is an ABS brake system that helps increase confidence on the variety of road surfaces you’re likely to encounter on the CB500X.

Engine/Drive Train
  • The DOHC liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine uses a square bore & stroke of 67 mm x 66.8 mm for an optimum combination of strong low-end torque and horsepower and excellent top-end performance.
  • The 67 mm bore size is the same as used on the CBR600RR.
  • Engine vibration is kept to a minimum by using crank pins phased at 180 degrees and a balancer shaft behind the cylinders, which also contributes to the engine’s compact size.
  • PGM-FI electronic fuel injection keeps the engine running efficiently in all conditions and ensures crisp throttle response.
  • Careful flow analysis of the cooling system resulted in a water pump that’s small and lightweight, yet still more than capable of keeping the engine running its best at high output levels.
  • In order to maximize air-intake and exhaust efficiency, the profile from the air cleaner through the intake ports to the exhaust pipe was made as straight as possible.
  • The four valves in each of the DOHC cylinder heads have narrow stems, thereby reducing weight and friction and increasing efficiency.
  • A light and compact roller-rocker-arm assembly and shim-type valve adjustment allows a lower valve-spring load for reduced friction and a compact cylinder head.
  • The pins in the silent cam chain have been treated with vanadium, which both reduces friction and improves durability.
  • The lightweight pistons use the same advanced manufacturing process as those found in the CBR600RR.
  • To ensure precise cylinder shape, the engine uses the same centrifugal-cast thin-wall sleeves as found in the CBR600RR.
  • The oil pump’s internal relief structure uses the same design as found in the CBR1000RR, which reduces friction, improves aeration performance and simplifies the shape of the oil pan.
  • The lightweight diamond-shaped steel frame was designed to allow a certain degree of yield, which enables it to better respond to changes in the road surface and to transmit just the right amount of feedback to the rider.
  • The Pro-Link rear suspension with preload-adjustable shock and the conventional 41 mm telescopic fork are calibrated for a comfortable but sporty ride.
  • The rear section of the frame was designed to facilitate a seat height of 810 mm, which allows most riders to easily plant their feet on the ground when stopped.
  • Lightweight cast aluminum wheels with Y-shaped spokes not only look trick, they also contribute to the bike’s excellent manoeuvrability.
  • Wave brake rotors with superlative heat-dissipating qualities are lighter than conventional discs of the same diameter, which help to further reduce the bike’s unsprung weight.
  • Dual-piston brake calipers up front and a single-piston caliper at the back provide strong but easily controlled stopping power. Plus, ABS gives you extra peace of mind on reduced-traction road surfaces.
Additional Features
  • Ergonomics were carefully configured to ensure an unrestricted riding position that allows easy manoeuvring in town, an easy reach to the ground, as well as excellent comfort during long-distance highway trips.
  • The CB500X boasts a large 17-litre fuel tank, which combined with the fuel-efficient engine, means excellent range for plenty of riding fun between fill-ups.
  • A utility space under the seat accommodates a U-lock, wet weather gear or other items.
