The Honda CB 500Xe Honda CB500X shares its chassis, suspension and liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, DOHC parallel-twin with its CB500F and CBR500R cousins. With 47 horsepower and 43Nm of torque, and 195kg kerb weight, the CB500X is probably a mild-mannered machine, but one that’s refined and fuel-efficient, with Honda claiming 27km/l for the bike.

The chassis is a steel tube unit, and the CB500X is fitted with 41mm telescopic forks, Pro-Link rear monoshock, 17-inch wheels, 120/70 (front) and 160/60 (rear) radial tyres, disc brakes at both ends and standard ABS. The bike’s 17.3-litre fuel tank provides a range of more than 460km and given it’s adventure-touring positioning, the 500X gets a bash-plate fitted at the bottom to protect the engine’s underside and exhaust pipe on rough terrain.
