Stylish Crossover Bike, The New Honda NX500

May 21, 2024

Selangor, 21st May 2024 – Making its first entrance at MAS 2024, Boon Siew Honda introduces the NX500, a crossover bike developed based on the concept of Modern Street Adventure. 

This handsome ride offers 471cc, eight-valve liquid-cooled, DOHC parallel twin-cylinder layout, designed to revolutionize the riding experience for enthusiasts of all levels in both concrete jungle and flat dirt trails.

Feature highlights include:

  • Contemporary crossover design with a sleek aesthetic that seamlessly merges modern style with adventure-ready functionality.
  • Enhanced lighting with LED headlight and tail lamp for improved visibility and aesthetics.
  • Informative and intuitive 5-inch full color TFT screen. 
  • Advanced safety features by incorporating Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) for optimized traction and stability with assist and slipper® clutch for smooth and effortless gear transitions, particularly during off-road excursions.
  • Showa (Hitachi Astemo Ltd.) Separate function front fork big piston (SFF-BP) and double disc for the front brake.

This revered twin-cylinder engine boasts an impressive peak power of 37kW at 8,500rpm and delivers a robust 45Nm torque at 6,500rpm. Nestled within a sleek and aerodynamically designed adventure frame, this bike offers a modern crossover style, offering simplicity, agility, and undeniable presence on any terrain.

Weighing a remarkable 3kg lighter than its predecessor, the NX500 enhances maneuverability with its lighter wheels. Coupled with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), riders can relish in the joy of seamless maneuvering across diverse riding conditions. 

The advanced HSTC system meticulously regulates fuel injection based on rear wheel slip ratio data from front and rear wheel speed sensors to ensure optimal traction even on slippery surfaces, providing riders with unparalleled confidence and peace of mind.

Equipped with dual-disc front brakes and an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), the NX500 guarantees precise braking performance and enhanced vehicle control. Whether navigating city streets or encountering sudden changes in road conditions, riders can trust in the NX500’s ability to deliver a safe and composed riding experience.

Continuing its commitment to innovation, the NX500 features a SHOWA (Hitachi Astemo Ltd.) SFF-BP inverted front fork with a Φ41-mm inner pipe. This sophisticated suspension system, with a damping mechanism and spring on the right fork and a spring on the left fork, minimizes sliding resistance and optimizes vehicle weight for superior handling and comfort.

Further enhancing rider comfort and control is the addition of assist and slipper® clutch designed to reduce clutch lever operation loads and mitigate rear wheel hopping during rapid engine braking. This cutting-edge technology not only reduces fatigue during stop-and-go traffic and long-distance touring but also ensures a smoother and more enjoyable riding experience overall.

Completing the NX500’s impressive array of features are its newly designed LED head and tail lights with Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), providing instant communication of braking intentions to trailing vehicles. Additionally, the inclusion of Honda RoadSync as a standard feature enables seamless integration with smartphones, allowing riders to access essential functions such as calling and navigation via Bluetooth®.

“Boon Siew Honda is proud to introduce the NX500, our latest offering that embodies the spirit of adventure and innovation,” said Mitsuharu Funase, Managing Director and CEO of Boon Siew Honda. “With its advanced features, contemporary design, and superior performance, the NX500 sets a new standard in the crossover motorcycle segment.”
