The Honda CB500X in 2019 was reborn with a much more aggressive, ‘Ready for the Wild’ adventure style. Thanks to improved aerodynamic performance, the high-pressure air flowing around the fairing and screen was reduced, improving wind protection for the rider at highway speeds.

The seat profile, too, was slimmed by shaving the shoulders at the front, allowing for easy movement around the machine, and aiding the already comfortable ground reach. To help the Honda CB500X’s maneuverability the steering angle was increased 3° to 38° from centered to full lock, and the addition of gunmetal grey tapered steel handlebar elevated control still further.

The 19-inch front wheel – along with the long travel suspension – ensures confident, supremely stable handling on rough surfaces. A single front 310mm wave-pattern disc and two-piston brake caliper is matched to a 240mm rear disc and single-piston caliper. ABS is fitted as standard
