Ideal for any rider stepping up from a smaller machine, 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.
While the CB500F, CBR500R and CB500X are focused in different directions they are all easy to manage, and deliver all-round practicality matched to excellent efficiency. And blessed with lightweight agility and an engaging power delivery they are also enjoyable to ride in every scenario.
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 low running costs will also make a great long-term partner and practical choice for riders of all experience levels.
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. It is also comfortable for a large range of rider sizes (especially smaller riders who can sometimes be intimidated by physically bulky motorcycles) thanks to clever ergonomics.
The steel diamond frame and high quality suspension – 41mm telescopic front forks matched to Pro-Link rear monoshock – provide confident, precise handling as do 17-inch cast aluminium wheels and wide 120 front, 160 rear radial tyres. Wave-pattern disc brakes provide powerful, yet easy to control stopping power, and ABS is available as an option
