Standard Features

Engine & Drivetrain
 Low-end torque & top-end performance  
    The DOHC liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine uses a square bore & stroke of 67 x 66.8 mm for an optimum combination of strong low-end torque and horsepower and excellent top-end performance.  
 Powerfully engineered  
    The 67 mm bore size is the same as used on the CBR600RR.  
 Compact engine, minimal vibration  
    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.  
 Crisp throttle response  
    PGM-FI electronic fuel injection keeps the engine running efficiently in all conditions and ensures crisp throttle response.  
 Runs smoothly at high output levels  
    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.  
 Maximized air-intake  
    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.  
 Excellent efficiency  
    The four valves in each of the DOHC cylinder heads have narrow stems, thereby reducing weight and friction and increasing efficiency.  
 Reduced friction  
    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.  
 Smoother shifting  
    Improvements to the six-speed gearbox result in smoother, more-precise shifting.  
 The sound of power  
    A shorter muffler with redesigned internal structure produces an authoritative exhaust note and improves the bike’s mass centralization.  
 Improved durability & design  
    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 CBR600RR. To ensure precise cylinder shape, the engine uses the same centrifugal-cast thin-wall sleeves as found in the CBR600RR.  
Chassis & Suspension
 Designed for rider feedback  
    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.  
 Comfortable & sporty ride  
    The Pro-Link rear suspension with preload-adjustable shock and the conventional 41 mm telescopic fork are calibrated for a comfortable but sporty ride.  
 Adjustable fork  
    The front fork now offers spring-preload adjustment so you can tailor the ride just the way you want it.  
 Good rider balance at stops  
    The rear section of the frame was designed to facilitate a seat height of 785 mm, which allows most riders to easily plant their feet on the ground when stopped.  
 Lightweight wheels  
    Lightweight cast aluminum wheels with Y-shaped spokes not only look trick, they also contribute to the bike’s excellent maneuverability.  
 Reduced unsprung weight  
    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.  
 ABS braking control  
    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.  
Additional Features
 Designed for city & highway rides  
    Ergonomics were carefully configured to ensure an unrestricted riding position that allows easy maneuvering in town, an easy reach to the ground, as well as excellent comfort during long-distance highway trips.  
 Aggressive new look  
    Sleek new bodywork incorporates an LED headlight and taillight, and leaves more of the engine exposed for an aggressive, streetfighter look.  
 Fuel efficient & increased range  
    The CB500F 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.  
 Convenient under-seat storage  
    A utility space under the seat accommodates a U-lock, wet weather gear or other items.  
 New brake lever and wave key  
    New adjustable brake lever and wave-style ignition key add to the CB500F’s long list of premium features.  
 Get blown away – but not by the wind  
    The CB500F’s compact handlebar-mounted wind deflector contributes to its bold “naked” styling, which leaves the beautifully crafted engine out in full view.
