The CB500X is for the free-spirited, those who want to conquer the urban jungle. With its powerful twin-cylinder engine and long-travel suspension, it was built for your adventures.
LONG TRAVEL SUSPENSION
Whether you want to take a brief trip through the rough city streets, or explore the endless vistas of the open road, the CB500X is ready. Its 41mm telescopic forks and Pro-Link rear monoshock offer smooth, extended travel to absorb hits. Both are adjustable for spring pre-load, tailoring the steering geometry to accommodate a pillion and full luggage.
Adventure is all about infinite freedom. But freedom is meaningless if your ride is uncomfortable. The CB500X’s steel diamond-tube frame has a tuned rigidity balance to enhance feedback. The engine is close to the swingarm pivot point for easy handling and, the seat height is 830mm, which makes the riding position upright and relaxed, offering excellent forward visibility and control.
This is a bike designed to handle any kind of terrain. There’s plenty of ground clearance for tough performance on rough roads, and the wide turning angle of the handlebars give you outstanding handling. A 19-inch front wheel improves stability and roll-over ability, and block-pattern tyres ensure tenacious grip and feedback. The raised windscreen keeps you protected for a more enjoyable ride.
Without control, power is useless. The CB500X features a single front 310mm wavy disc and powerful two-piston brake caliper matched to a 240mm rear disc and single-piston caliper. Dual channel ABS is fitted as standard, so you can easily manage braking force in wet or dry conditions.
When you’re exploring the open road, you need a clear, concise information panel. The CB500X features an attractive negative-display LCD dash to keep you entertained. Information includes a speedo and rev-counter, dual trip meters, fuel level and consumption gauges and Gear Position and Shift Up indicators.
THERE’S A WORLD OUT THERE
Make your mark on it.
The CB500X has a tough look that exudes adventure. Inspired by the legendary Africa Twin – and with updated graphics – it blends rugged lines with an aggressive stance, and the tall screen offers comfort.
And all-round performer.
The CB500X features the twin-cylinder engine you need to explore any type of road. Powerful, agile and efficient even on longer journeys: it gives you the freedom you’ve been dreaming of. And, just like its larger siblings, an Assist/Slipper clutch eases upshifts and manages the rear wheel lock-up on hard down changes.

Tapered handlebars offer leverage and complete handling control, and full LED lighting, including indicators, is a premium finishing touch.
