Features

Innovations

  • PASSENGER HANDHOLDS: Sturdy passenger handholds provide security for your passenger or tie-down points for smaller items.
  • NEW EXHAUST: The CB500F’s compact exhaust system gets a new, twin-outlet muffler and larger-diameter pipes this year, for better power and an even more pleasing exhaust note.
  • STEP SEAT: The CB500F offers a step seat with a low height. Perfect for around-town riding or out in the canyons, it also offers plenty of room for a passenger and is specially designed to fit a wide range of riders.
  • PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION: A sophisticated chassis with Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension, nine-stage preload, and 4.7 inches of travel give you a comfortable ride over small bumps, while capably absorbing bigger bumps to increase riding comfort and handling. For 2019, the CB500F also gets a new shock with larger-diameter internals for a better ride.
  • STEEL-TUBE FRAME: A motorcycle’s frame is the basis for its handling. Stronger and lighter, the CB500F’s diamond-shaped 35mm steel-tube mainframe ties to the engine with four mounts, offering a rock-solid foundation for a superior ride and handling.
  • PROGRAMMED FUEL INJECTION (PGM-FI): New injectors on the 2019 CB500F are part of the reason the bike makes more power in the critical 3000-7000 RPM range. 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.
  • 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.
  • DOHC TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE: Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the CB500F’s engine is one of our best ever. With increased low-end horsepower and torque this year, the parallel-twin offers accessible performance across all RPM ranges.
  • 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.
  • UNIQUE STYLE: Less is more when it comes to the CB500F. With its lean, progressive style, the CB500F is a motorcycle that looks great while still providing incredible value and performance. New for 2019: check out the Grand Prix Red with updated graphics and matte silver panels.
  • DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION: A new, 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.
  • LED HEADLIGHT: The CB500F’s new dual-lens LED headlight gives the front end a cutting-edge look and also projects plenty of light on the road for visibility.
  • CAST WHEELS: Strong and stylish, the CB500F’s Y-spoke cast-aluminum wheels are easy to keep clean, look great, and are another CB500F feature that just makes sense.
  • DISC BRAKES: The front 320mm disc brake and 240mm rear feature drilled, petal-style rotors that provide strong stopping power.
