2023 Honda® CB500F
A generation ago, our Honda 350 twins introduced the world to just how good—and how much fun—a motorcycle could be. And today we’re doing the same thing again with our family of 500cc twins. One of the best examples is our 2023 CB500F. Because of its light weight, affordable price, rider-friendly powerband and narrow profile, it’s a great choice as a first bike. Even better, because of its versatility and midrange horsepower, it’s a bike you can keep enjoying for years without trading up. In terms of style, its streetfighter look never gets old. And while other bikes in its class might scrimp on components, the CB500F is first-class all the way, with a 41mm Showa upside-down SFF-BP fork, dual front brake discs with radial-mount four-piston calipers, and standard anti-lock brakes (ABS). Not too big, not too small, and offering excellent fuel efficiency, the CB500F is a great choice for the way we ride today.
Features may include:
- DOHC TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the CB500F’s engine is one of our best ever. With plenty of low-end horsepower and torque, this parallel-twin offers accessible performance across a wide RPM range.
- ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)
Standard equipment on every 2023 CB500F, helping you make smoother, more controlled stops under less-than-ideal conditions.
- SLIPPER ASSIST CLUTCH
The slipper/assist clutch lets us lighten up the clutch-lever effort by 45 percent, but automatically locks up tight when you release it.
- STEP SEAT
The CB500F offers a step seat with a low height. Perfect for around-town riding or out in the canyons, it also offers room for a passenger and is specially designed to fit a wide range of riders.
