More power, more torque

The 471 cc DOHC liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine uses a square bore & stroke of 67 mm x 66.8 mm for an optimum combination of strong low-end torque and excellent top-end power and performance.

Assist Slipper clutch

Not only does the assist slipper clutch help to prevent rear-wheel lockup on downshifts, it also reduces effort at the lever by almost half, helping to reduce rider fatigue particularly in city traffic or on long rides.

Smooth and compact

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 virtually all conditions and helps ensure crisp throttle response and powerful torque at low to mid RPM.

Maximized efficiency

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, helped in part by repositioning the battery away from the rear of the airbox intake duct.

Easy shifting

The gear indicator and adjustable shift-up indicator make it even easier to use the smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox.

The sound of power

Upgrades from the previous generation include a repositioned battery, now farther from the rear of the airbox intake duct to maximize air-intake and exhaust efficiency, while the muffler now features dual exit pipes for a sportier sounding edge to the exhaust note.

chassis and suspension

Lightweight Frame

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.


The upgraded suspension (compared to the previous generation) includes a Showa 41mm Separate Function Fork Big Piston (SFF-BP) USD forks – the same found on the CBR650R. Additionally, the Pro-Link® rear suspension compliments the front suspension with more lateral flex and a single-tube shock absorber with five-stage spring preload adjustment (replacing the double-tube design of the previous model). Its large-diameter piston also helps to ensure excellent suspension response and improved heat dissipation. Both the shock and the adjustable 41 mm fork are calibrated for a comfortable but sporty ride.

Lightweight wheels

Lightweight cast aluminum wheels with Y-shaped spokes not only look trick, they also contribute to the bike’s excellent manoeuvrability.

Powerful braking

Experience strong and easily conptrolled stopping power -- the front has been updated with dual disc brakes with radial-mounted calipers, while the back features a single-piston caliper. Plus, two-channel ABS gives you extra peace of mind on reduced-traction road surfaces. 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.

additional features

Designed for city & highway rides

Ergonomics were carefully configured to ensure an unrestricted riding position that allows easy manoeuvring in town, an easy reach to the ground, as well as excellent comfort during long-distance highway trips.

Aggressive look

Sleek bodywork incorporates an LED headlight, taillight and turn signals, and leaves more of the engine exposed for an aggressive, streetfighter look.

Convenient storage

A utility space under the seat accommodates a U-lock, wet weather gear or other items.

More upgrades

The CB500F’s impressive list of premium features now includes brighter LEDs and new PGM-FI settings to improve engine character with increased power to low-end torque.
