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.
You’re on the road. You hear the sound of the free-spinning two-cylinder engine. Your confidence grows. The evocative roar of the exhaust makes the CB500F experience that much more special, finally setting you free from the ordinary (best heard with headphones).
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.
