Honda Midweight Lineup VideoIn November of 2012, Honda unveiled three brand-new motorcycles – the CBR500R sportbike, the CB500F standard, and the CB500X adventure.
These three midweights were popular from the time of their launches, and received praise from those inside the motorcycle industry and everyday riders.Each bike has a personality that appeals to different styles of riding, from the beginning sportbike pilot seeking more than a 250 can offer (CBR500R), to the commuter seeking a standard (CB500F), to the rider who wants adventure styling and the best in ergonomics (CB500X).Each bike is powered by the liquid-cooled, 500cc parallel-twin DOHC engine that features Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) and a counterbalanced, and is hooked to a six-speed transmission.Honda recently released the attached video highlighting each model.
