Honda CB500X: Our First Drive Review

The Honda CB500X is elaborate on the same frame as his/her sisters, roadster CB500F and “sporting” the CBR500R. All the same machine line entry which does not have large-thing to envy large.

 Honda CB500X: our first drive review

Third of recent family CB 500 elaborate on a common platform, the “X” declines the trail kind with urban vocation. In common with his/her sisters: tally steel of the Diamond type, twin-cylinder of 471   Cm3 and 48 ch, and almost identical simple part-cycle.

The “X” is distinguished however: larger tank (17.3 liters against 15.7   L), suspensions with greater clearance (140   mm against 120), and tires with the profile trail, large handlebar and adjustable protection…

With the handlebar, the impression of comfort dominates legs at ease (for less than 1.80 m), saddles roomy hardly higher than the roadster “F” (810 mm), broad handlebar offering a good handiness, protection of the bust and legs…

 Honda CB500X: our first drive review

Even if it is linear hair, the parallel twin does not disappoint. The power of 47.6 CH and the couple of 4.6 m/kg with 7000 tr/min are enough to take off 195 announced kg of this Honda CB500SX.

 Honda CB500X: our first drive review

Behind the flattering scented amber color, way glasses of skiing specific to model X, the entirely digital instrumentation is not very readable. In complement of the rev counter with a bar graph, one finds 2 trips, a calculator of consumption, a calculation of the km on the way in reserve, and a watch. It’s a pity that the unit either is pokey!

Test Honda CB500X: Common Platform

 Honda CB500X: our first drive review

Already seen at Honda and taken again on the recent family CB 500, the principle of the common platform makes it possible to tighten the costs while answering varied waiting.

Test Honda CB500X: that pumps

The 20 mm of clearance offers a surplus of comfort, but the modifications to rigidify the shock absorber postpones are not convincing. As soon as the rhythm accelerates, that pumps.

Test Honda CB500X: Reasonable

 Honda CB500X: our first drive review

Revisions every 12,000 km, completion of good omen face proof against time especially, reduced consumption: difficult not to currently regard X as the most reasonable motorcycle on the market.

Test Honda CB500X: Protection

 Honda CB500X: our first drive review

The small adjustable jump wind does not make a miracle at motorway speed, but the protection of the bust and legs is welcome. The additional capacity of 1.6 liters in the tank (17.3 L on the whole) offers autonomy which will suit travelers.

Test Honda CB500X: Effective Braking

 Honda CB500X: our first drive review

Effective, braking with simple disc second perfectly a part-cycle healthy. ABS, not coupled, is delivered in series.

Flexible on the setting of the angle, and light at exit, it part-cycle confers on X a reassuring behavior, consolidated by effective braking. Rather discrete, ABS (not coupled) is delivered in series. The back is adjustable suspension, pump is as soon as the rhythm is increased.

The parallel twin with the tuning fork of the part-cycle: controlled injection, flexible gearbox, and maximum power – specifically developed for the license A2 (47.6 CH) – without surprise. And it does not disappoint. A linear hair, its couple is sufficient (4.6 kg with 7,000 tr/min) to make take off 195 kg announced in functioning order.

Passed 6,000 turns, a light start of promptness even allows, for example, an easy-going beyond while descending a report. More bluffing remains its appetite of a sparrow: 3.5   l/100 km in “eco drives”, maximum 5 liters while having fun. Result: more than 450   km with full.


With 5,990 € (400 more than “F”), this small trial does not make pay very expensive its a supplement of comfort. Revisions every 12,000 km, completion of good omen face proof against time and, especially, reduced consumption: difficult not to currently regard Honda cb500x as the most reasonable motorcycle in the market.
