2013 Honda CB 500F

Based on the same platform as the CBR500R, the 2012 CB500F brings in the nifty semi-naked looks of middleweight streetfighters. Stripped down to the base essentials, the bike only retains miniature side panels, aimed at offering better weather protection for the rider.

The revised ergonomics and seat introduces a relaxed, upright riding position which also provides motorcyclists with enhanced control over the bars and allows them to flip the bike more easily. Add in the sporty character of the whole build and you've got the perfect mid-sized commuter.


In addition, it comes with a 41mm telescopic front fork, a Pro-Link adjustable monoshock as a rear suspension, an under-belly exhaust system with a chromed muffler, a two-piece, dual seat, passenger grab rails, a nose-fairing with a small windscreen, die-cast, aluminum wheels, a steel frame, an engine mudguard and a digital and analogue instrument cluster.
