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.
BREAK FREE FROM THE ORDINARY
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.
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.
The CB500F features a crisp, inverse display LCD dash with Gear Position and Shift Up indicators. Tapered handlebars offer leverage, feel and complete control while LED lighting – including indicators – is a premium finishing touch. The 41mm telescopic forks are adjustable for spring preload as is the high-quality, single tube Pro-Link rear monoshock.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The 8-valve, liquid-cooled parallel twin-cylinder engine produces 35kW @ 8,600rpm - making it A2 licence compliant - with a peak torque of 43Nm @ 6,500rpm. What you'll notice, instantly out on the road is the strong low - and mid-range torque, for faster acceleration.
SIX-SPEED GEARBOX AND SLIPPER CLUTCH
You've a thrilling chase through the six-speed gearbox at high rpm, out on the open road. And, just like its larger siblings an Assist/Slipper clutch eases upshifts and manages rear wheel lock-up on hard down changes while decelerating.
CRISP 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.
Full LED lighting gives the CB500F a contemporary edge. It's also more efficient, and makes less demand on the electrical system, which means less drag on the engine.
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.
