About the 2016-2019 Honda CB500F
The innovative CB500F expands riding enthusiasts’ options with a modern and sporty 471cc sportbike. This image-conscious offering not only carries a full load of attitude, it also delivers a gratifying level of performance and versatility. The CB500F has a classic riding position, a 30.9-inch seat height and plenty of room for a variety of riders.
Ideal for any rider stepping up from a smaller machine or holding an A2 licence, the naked CB500F, part of a new family of motorcycles that includes the fully-faired CBR500R and adventure sports CB500X, is a true middleweight with compact dimensions, punchy performance and nimble handling.
Sharing a common frame and engine, the three machines each have a distinct feel and character and feature a riding position and design that is tailored, and will appeal to, a wide variety of riders, with adaptable abilities that cover a range of uses from commuting and sports, to touring.
A perfect platform from which to experience the fun and freedom that motorcycling brings, the CB500F makes a great first “full-size” bike for any rider – and with its high build quality, affordable price point and with low running costs.
The naked CB500F takes styling cues from the stripped-down four-cylinder CB1000R, and its slim form offers great urban ability as well as enjoyable, out-of-town performance. Its DOHC twin-cylinder fuel-injected engine produces 35kW (making it ideal for A2 licence holders moving up a class) and returns an impressive 80.2mpg (WMTC figure).
