What Is It?

The Honda CB500F is an A2 licence friendly naked bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 471 cc parallel twin engine, producing 46.9 bhp at 8,500 rpm and maximum torque at 7,000 rpm. The engine is a stressed member of the frame.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame and swingarm
  • 320 mm wavy disc up front with Nissin 2 piston caliper
  • 240 mm wavy disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Dual channel ABS
  • 41 mm Showa fork with 120 mm travel
  • Rear pro-link shock with 9 level pre-load adjustment and 120 mm travel
  • 2->1 exhaust system
  • 6 speed gearbox

It's basically the same bike as the sports CBR500R and adventure CB500X, but without the tall suspension of the X or fairing and low bars of the R. The LCD dash gives you the usual speedo, revs, fuel level as well as dual trip meters, fuel consumption and a clock while the 12-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 160/60 at the rear.

Accessories include heated grips (£280), hugger (£85), tall screen (£115), 35 litre top box (£395), pannier kit (£325), Akrapovic slip on (£495), Carbon effect mini screen (£25) and rear seat cowl (£130).
