Honda CB500X

Grand Prix Red

The city is the new wild.

The CB500X is for the free-spirited, those who want to conquer the urban jungle. With its powerful twin-cylinder engine and long-travel suspension, it was built for your adventures.

Factor X

A free-spinning twin-cylinder engine turns the CB500X into a dynamic motorcycle, capable of taking you on any adventure. Get ready for an unforgettable journey. Designed to give you a smooth, enjoyable ride while urban commuting, high-speed cruising or exploring dirt roads (best heard with headphones).

There’s a world out there

Make your mark on it.

The CB500X has a tough look that exudes adventure. Inspired by the legendary Africa Twin – and with updated graphics – it blends rugged lines with an aggressive stance, and the tall screen offers comfort.

Compact powerhouse

And all-round performer.

The CB500X features the twin-cylinder engine you need to explore any type of road. Powerful, agile and efficient even on longer journeys: it gives you the freedom you’ve been dreaming of. And, just like its larger siblings, an Assist/Slipper clutch eases upshifts and manages the rear wheel lock-up on hard down changes.

Adjustable control

For the long haul.

The CB500X features an attractive negative-display LCD dash, with Gear Position and Shift Up indicators. Tapered handlebars offer leverage and complete handling control, and full LED lighting, including indicators, is a premium finishing touch. The long-travel 41mm telescopic forks are adjustable for spring preload, as is the Pro-Link rear monoshock.
