Punchy Performance, Adventure Styling
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 a full licence, but also from experienced motorcyclists looking for a fun, practical and economical all-rounder. CB500X evolves further with enhanced crossover style, function and desirability to offer a compelling package of all-round capability with an adventurous spirit.
It is ready for anything, styling has improved by taking cues from the Africa Twin.
And while the CB500X’s engine maintains the 35KW peak output, it now makes 4% more power and torque between 3-7000 rpm, thanks to revisions to the inlet, exhaust note and the engine now features an assist/slipper clutch.
