Honda's CB500F is proof that less can be more. Boasting a sporty look and feel, this mid-displacement naked bike offers lightweight, nimble handling and practical performance around town. Ideal for the college commute, daily trips into the city or weekend outings to the countryside or mountains, the CB500F blends performance with a neutral riding position. Meanwhile, the bike's rider-focused feel is honed through decades of iconic Honda CB models that paved the road for this latest parallel-twin platform.
The CB500F's naked form exudes aggression. Led by the low-set headlight design, the machine's stance suggests that it's ready to attack. The side shrouds interlock with the fuel tank and emphasize the engine, while the side covers and seat unit continue the theme of muscular angularity.
A tapered handlebar adds feel and leverage. LCD instruments feature Gear Position and Shift Up indicators; the latter is set to a default 8,750 rpm but can be adjusted in 250 rpm increments between 5,000 and 8,750 rpm.
The 35 mm steel diamond-tube mainframe is light and strong, with enough flex to give optimum feedback to the rider as road surfaces change. Vibration is minimized by the shape and position of the engine mounts, plus the frame's rigidity balance.
The geometry results in nimble yet confidence-inspiring steering. Mass centralization, with the engine in close proximity to the swingarm pivot, delivers turning agility, while optimum front/rear weight distribution ensures good handling. The low, 30.9 inch seat height makes the CB500F manageable in city-street riding, and its neutral riding position comfortably accommodates riders of varying heights.
The 41 mm preload-adjustable telescopic fork delivers a compliant yet controlled ride and gives great feel for front-tire grip. A single-tube rear shock (as found on larger-capacity sport bikes) with large-diameter piston ensures excellent suspension response and temperature management. It has nine-stage spring preload adjustment and works through a rigid box-section steel swingarm.
Lightweight, 17-inch cast-aluminum wheels feature hollow cross-section Y-shaped spokes. A single front 320 mm petal-style rotor and two-piston brake caliper are matched to a 240 mm rear disc and single-piston caliper, and ABS improves performance.
The CB500F's eight-valve, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin-cylinder engine offers a well-proportioned balance of physical size and willing, enjoyable power output, with an energetic, high-revving cha
