Long travel suspension

Whether you want to take a brief trip through the rough city streets, or explore the endless vistas of the open road, the CB500X is ready. Its 41mm telescopic forks and Pro-Link rear monoshock offer smooth, extended travel to absorb hits. Both are adjustable for spring pre-load, tailoring the steering geometry to accommodate a pillion and full luggage.

Easy handling

Instantly recognisable with hard-edged signature stare, the dual LED headlights deliver penetrating beams and also feature Daytime Running Lights (DRL) that automatically adjust to ambient light intensity, improving safety no matter the conditions.

Braking control

Without control, power is useless. The CB500X features a single front 310mm wavy disc and powerful two-piston brake caliper matched to a 240mm rear disc and single-piston caliper. Dual channel ABS is fitted as standard, so you can easily manage braking force in wet or dry conditions.

Information Display

When you're exploring the open road, you need a clear, concise information panel. The CB500X features an attractive negative-display LCD dash to keep you entertained. Information includes a speedo and rev-counter, dual trip meters, fuel level and consumption gauges and Gear Position and Shift Up indicators.

There's a world out there

Make your mark on it.

The CB500X has a tough look that exudes adventure. Inspired by the legendary Africa Twin - and with updated graphics - it blends rugged lines with an aggressive stance, and the tall screen offers comfort.

Compact powerhouse

And all-round performer.

The CB500X features the twin-cylinder engine you need to explore any type of road. Powerful, agile and efficient even on longer journeys: it gives you the freedom you've been dreaming of. And, just like its larger siblings, an Assist/Slipper clutch eases upshifts and manages the rear wheel lock-up on hard down changes.

Advance technology to push limits

You like a challenge. So do we.

A real test of what and where is possible. So we built the Africa Twin to push limits. The engine's relentless mid-range torque - for immediate and linear drive when you open the throttle - is crowned by an adrenaline-charged top-end rush. And the competition-style exhaust breathes freely with a highly-tuned crackle.
