2013 Honda CB500X | Quick Look

2013 Honda CB 500 X

The smallest displacement adventure motorcycle available, the 2013 CB500X takes Honda’s new liquid-cooled DOHC parallel twin motor and chassis, and stretches its legs a bit.

Suspension is longer than on its pure-street cousins, the rake is kicked out a degree and the wheelbase is a tad longer – all giving the 500X more stability and a more relaxed chassis.

A small windscreen and plastic cowling protecting the exhaust add to the flexibility of the bike, and Honda has a number of luggage and dirt-road oriented accessories that can turn the CB500X into a small adventure tourer. ABS is an available option, also.
