The New 2013 Honda 500cc Motorcycle Line-Up


Honda expands riding enthusiasts’ options with a series of modern and sporty 500cc sportbikes. This image-conscious offering not only carries a full load of attitude, it also delivers a gratifying level of performance and versatility The new 500cc parallel-twin series has a sporty to classic riding position, a 30.9-inch seat height and plenty of room for a variety of riders. It’s an excellent choice for riders ready to move up a displacement class, or for anyone who appreciates a great middleweight motorcycle.

The new 500cc series features a brand-new engine and chassis. Like the machines that made Honda famous in the U.S., its two-cylinder parallel-twin layout provides a wide powerband and plenty of torque, while a counterbalance keeps things running smooth. In addition, the new 500cc’s neutral, classic seating position makes it a perfect fit for someone who wants a bike that can do it all, and do it all well.

The DOHC Parallel-Twin-Cylinder Engine

Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the new Honda 500cc engine is one of the best ever. Using the same piston bore size as the Honda CBR600RR sportbike, the parallel-twin engine offers accessible performance across all RPM ranges.
The Honda CB500F - Classic Riding Position
Not too laid back, not too aggressive, the CB500F’s riding position, is one of the keys to its versatility. The CB500F offers a comfortable sport riding position that’s maneuverable around town or out on the winding road. The lower seat height also makes it easier to get your feet firmly on the ground when stopped.

The Honda CBR500R - Leading the Way Through Innovation.
The CBR500R features a brand-new engine and chassis.

Special touches like the CBR500R sport seating position, lower handlebars and minimal bodywork make it a great choice for someone who likes the lithe, athletic touches of a sportbike but wants something more versatile than a race replica.

Honda CB500X - Innovation and Versatility.
The CB500X features a brand-new engine and chassis. Like the machines that made Honda famous in the U.S., its two-cylinder parallel-twin layout provides a wide powerband and plenty of torque, while a counterbalance keeps thing running smooth.
