The CB500F is compact, LAMS approved and known for its all-round agility, punchy performance and sensible running costs which make it a great motorcycle with which to commute through the week and ride for pleasure at the weekend, whatever the rider’s experience level. The naked street-fighter style and rider-focussed features add fun and excitement to every ride.
The 500cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin DOHC engine is thoroughly modern in design and produces a broad power spread for enjoyable and economical riding. Four-valve cylinder head design uses lightweight rocker-arm valve actuation with shim-type valve adjustment.
The styling concept behind the CB500Fs angular minimalism is ‘Mechanical & Aggressive’ with the compact headlight cowl and seat unit – and downsized bodywork – creating a condensed trapezoid form focused around the engine and frame. Small but efficient the LED headlight features position lights located in the upper left and right side, creating an assertive front-on presence. A character line and duct are carved into the speedometer case, adding a sharper edged appeal.
