The 500cc-Class Family Becomes Honda’s Triple Threat

Posted:

Honda have announced the much anticipated arrival of the final member to the impressive 500cc-class family.

The exhilarating new CB500F joins the CB500X and CBR500R in Honda showrooms around the country from Monday 16th May.

Honda's newest addition continues to keep the bar raised as an injection of adrenaline for the final instalment to the 500cc class motorcycles.

Adding a shot of street fighter style into the new CB500F is a bold evolution from the previous model.

The famed 471cc DOHC engine and steel diamond-tube frame will remain unchanged but the CB500F has received an aggressive new look in 2016.

Underneath a new stripped-back and muscular stance, the naked Honda encapsulates a host of rider-focused upgrades.

The new CB500F is a motorcycle you can be proud to call your own thanks to a larger 16.7-litre fuel tank, LED lighting and spring preload adjustable front forks.

Adding a new lightweight exhaust and adjustable brake lever, coupled with punchy Honda performance and all round agility make for a sleek new ride.

For those who want to stand out amongst the crowd the CB500F is available in two bold colours; vibrant Lemon Ice Yellow and a classic Matte Gunpowder Black.

The CB500F is LAMS approved, for any experience level with sensible running costs making it a thrilling versatile bike to commute through the week or ride for pleasure on the weekend.

For more information about the 2016 CB500F or the CB500R and CB500X counterparts see your nearest Honda Dealer, ring 1 300 1 HONDA or go to honda.com.au or Honda500.com.au
