Features

Innovations

  • NEW EXHAUST: Who doesn’t love the sound of a twin-cylinder motorcycle? We gave the CB500X a new muffler this year with twin exit pipes. It’s a little thing, but it’ll make you smile every time you ride.
  • ANTI-LOCK BRAKES: Want a version of the CB500X with Honda’s Anti-Lock Braking System? An excellent choice! Just ask your dealer to show you the CB500X ABS. It’s a great feature that helps you make smoother, more controlled stops under less-than-ideal riding conditions.
  • STEP SEAT: The CB500X gets a new seat for 2019. It still gives you an open, unrestricted riding position that’s perfect for both touring and commuting, and that still offers room for a passenger. But this year we’ve made the seat’s shoulders narrower, so it’s easier to put your feet down at stoplights or in parking lots.
  • PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION: A sophisticated chassis with Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension, with 9-stage spring preload and 5.9 inches of travel gives you a comfortable ride over small bumps, while capably absorbing bigger bumps to increase riding comfort and handling. A new shock absorber for 2019 features larger-diameter internals for even better damping characteristics and a smoother ride.
  • SMOOTHER TRANSMISSION: Our engineers reprofiled the shift dogs in the transmission, to help you get smoother shifts every time. You’ll never see these parts, but you’ll feel their effects.
  • STEEL-TUBE FRAME: A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. The CB500X’s diamond-shaped steel-tube mainframe ties to the engine with four mounts, offering a rock-solid foundation for superior ride and handling. It also contributes to the CB500X’s generous 7.1-inch ground clearance.
  • DOHC TWIN CYLINDER ENGINE: Revised this year to feature more power and torque in the midrange, the CB500X’s 471cc, liquid-cooled engine features parallel cylinders with dual overhead cams. Light, narrow, and powerful, it just strikes the perfect balance of what a mid-sized motorcycle engine should be
  • PROGRAMMED FUEL-INJECTION (PGM-FI): New injector bodies this year help the CB500X make even more power. The bike’s PGM-FI continuously monitors several variables to ensure the correct fuel mixture is delivered for the existing riding and atmospheric conditions for crisp throttle response throughout a wide variety of riding conditions.
  • UNIQUE STYLE: Like your favorite blue jeans, the CB500X just looks right—tough, capable, no-nonsense. Plus, the adventure-bike posture and seating position let you move around freely—just like your jeans!
  • SLIPPER/ASSIST CLUTCH: A new slipper/assist clutch lets us lighten up the clutch-lever effort by 45 percent, but automatically locks up tight when you release it.
  • DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION: A fresh, modern, easy-to-read LCD screen features digital speedometer and tachometer and more, including a clock, odometer, trip meter, real-time and average fuel consumption meters and illuminated engine diagnostic indicators.
  • TALLER WINDSCREEN: The CB500X’s windscreen offers superior wind protection, and is 20mm taller this year.
  • LED HEADLIGHT: With a clean, rough-and-ready look, the CB500X’s LED headlight and multi-facet reflector project plenty of light on the road for visibility. For 2019, the CB500X now features all-LED lighting.
  • LONG-TRAVEL FRONT SUSPENSION: The long-stroke 41mm fork yields an increase to 5.3 inches of travel this year, and a wide handlebar allows for easy steering inputs.
  • DISC BRAKES: The front 320mm disc brake and 240mm rear feature drilled, petal-style rotors that provide strong stopping power.
  • MULTI-SPOKE CAST WHEELS: Strong and stylish, the CB500X’s new, lightweight multi-spoke cast-aluminum wheels—19-inch diameter in front and 17-inch rear—are easy to keep clean, look great, enhance handling and are another CB500X feature that just makes sense.
