You Don’t Have To Crouch To Carve.
If you love the idea of a sportbike, but favor a more classic riding position, this is your Honda. The CB500F is spec’d out with everything you want in a modern sportbike. From its 471cc powerplant to Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) to aggressive drilled disc brakes to its unique Honda Pro-Link rear suspension, this is a sportbike built to carve corners, but not cut them. And with its light weight and low seat height, it’s the perfect choice for riders ready to move up to a bigger motorcycle.
A Winning Twin: The CB500F is powered by the newest version of Honda’s proven twin-cylinder engine. Featuring double overhead cams and liquid cooling, it extracts superior performance from its 471cc’s through every part of its wide powerband.
Sit Up And Ride: If you’re not ready for a full racer’s position, you’ll appreciate the CB500F’s classic riding position. You can sit up straighter, without supporting your weight on your arms. It’s a great choice when you’re riding around town or commuting, and you can always tuck in tighter when you want to. And it’s more comfortable for passengers.
Confidence Is Built-In: As a lighter bike in the 500 class, the CB500F is easier to handle, whether it’s putting it up on the side stand or paddling it backwards into a parking space. And its low seat height makes it easier to plant both feet securely on the ground at stoplights.
