CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

Standard

  • Lightweight cast aluminum wheels with Y-shaped spokes not only look trick, they also contribute to the bike’s excellent manoeuvrability.
  • The rear section of the frame was designed to facilitate a seat height of 810 mm, which allows most riders to easily plant their feet on the ground when stopped.
  • The lightweight diamond-shaped steel frame was designed to allow a certain degree of yield, which enables it to better respond to changes in the road surface and to transmit just the right amount of feedback to the rider.
  • The Pro-Link rear suspension with preload-adjustable shock and the conventional 41 mm telescopic fork are calibrated for a comfortable but sporty ride.
  • The front fork now offers spring-preload adjustment so you can tailor the ride just the way you want it.
  • Wave brake rotors with superlative heat-dissipating qualities are lighter than conventional discs of the same diameter, which help to further reduce the bike’s unsprung weight.
  • A dual-piston brake caliper up front and a single-piston caliper at the back provide strong but easily controlled stopping power. Plus, ABS gives you extra peace of mind on reduced-traction road surfaces.
  • New adjustable brake lever allows you to get the perfect fit for optimal comfort and control.
Engine/Drivetrain

Standard

  • Engine vibration is kept to a minimum by using crank pins phased at 180 degrees and a balancer shaft behind the cylinders, which also contributes to the engine’s compact size.
  • PGM-FI electronic fuel injection keeps the engine running efficiently in all conditions and ensures crisp throttle response.
  • The four valves in each of the DOHC cylinder heads have narrow stems, thereby reducing weight and friction and increasing efficiency.
  • A light and compact roller-rocker-arm assembly and shim-type valve adjustment allows a lower valve-spring load for reduced friction and a compact cylinder head.
  • The oil pump’s internal relief structure uses the same design as found in the CBR1000RR, which reduces friction, improves aeration performance and simplifies the shape of the oil pan.
  • The DOHC liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine uses a square bore & stroke of 67 mm (the same bore size as used on the CBR600RRA) x 66.8 mm for an optimum combination of strong low-end torque and horsepower and excellent top-end performance.
  • Careful flow analysis of the cooling system resulted in a water pump that’s small and lightweight, yet still more than capable of keeping the engine running its best at high output levels.
  • In order to maximize air-intake and exhaust efficiency, the profile from the air cleaner through the intake ports to the exhaust pipe was made as straight as possible.
  • The pins in the silent cam chain have been treated with vanadium, which both reduces friction and improves durability. The lightweight pistons use the same advanced manufacturing process as those found in the CBR600RRA. To ensure precise cylinder shape, the engine uses the same centrifugal-cast thin-wall sleeves as found in the CBR600RRA.
  • Improvements to the six-speed gearbox result in smoother, more-precise shifting.
Transmission

Standard

  • Six-speed transmission
  • Final Drive : #520 O-ring-sealed chain
Additional Features

Standard

  • Ergonomics were carefully configured to ensure an unrestricted riding position that allows easy manoeuvring in town, an easy reach to the ground, as well as excellent comfort during long-distance highway trips.
  • A utility space under the seat accommodates a U-lock, wet weather gear or other items.
  • Sleek new bodywork incorporates an LED headlight and taillight, plus an adjustable windshield that’s taller and vented for even better rider protection and aerodynamics.
  • The CB500X boasts a larger fuel tank for 2016, which combined with the fuel-efficient engine, means excellent range for plenty of riding fun between fill-ups.
  • The CB500X’s new bodywork includes a lower section that helps to protect the exhaust pipes and engine from stones and other debris when riding on rough surfaces.
