The 35kW A2 licence-friendly CB500X adventure machine received a major boost to its crossover style for 2016 with improved wind protection and taller screen; other upgrades included a larger fuel tank, LED lighting, spring preload adjustable front forks and adjustable brake lever. For 2017, the CB500X is newly EURO4-compliant and will be available in 3 new colours. A new exhaust muffler brings a more modern feel.
With its all-round punchy performance, adventure styling, affordable price point and low running costs the twin-cylinder CB500X is a great place from which to begin a lifelong motorcycling journey. Its upright, roomy riding position, substantial tank range and long-travel suspension inject a genuine sense of adventure into every ride, and make it serve equally well through the weekly commute as on the weekend escape.
Furthermore, its free-revving, flexible engine performance - with internal design derived from the CBR600RR and CBR1000RR - has gained approval not only from riders stepping up to an A2 licence, but also from experienced motorcyclists looking for a fun, practical and economical all-rounder.
For 2016 CB500X evolved substantially with enhanced crossover style, function and desirability to offer a compelling package of all-round capability with an adventurous spirit at an affordable price.
