Summary

Excellence Honda CB500F occupies a unique place in our lineup. This is a stylish aggressive streetfighter that is great for a wide variety of riders. For this year we have made some serious improvements. It now has more power, more style, better sound, and a host of other functional improvements. What hasn’t changed is the Honda CB500F’s new mission to put a new generation of riders in one of  the best road machines, with opportunities ahead.

Model

To see, Honda’s new CB500F is a huge improvement over last year’s model. It gets more aggressive LED headlights, a wider tank with clear air intakes, and a sharper, more muscular bodywork that makes it a proper ‘streetfighter mini’. The old bespoke look is gone and replaced by a machine with more attitude and presence, not afraid to show off its best parts – like that bloody ceramic-coated engine cover.

Smooth liquid-cooled 471cc parallel-twin engine quality, the same motor that was installed in the CBR500R and CB500X. However, the boffins at Honda slightly modified the fuel mapping on the F to improve low-to-midrange torque, with a maximum of 43Nm (31ft-lbs) at 6,500 rpm. The ’19 model also delivers a 4% increase in power over last year’s model, making the A2’s maximum power match 35KW (47bhp) @ 8600rpm.

The bike’s new super lightweight slipper clutch helps maintain composure under harsh braking and heavy downshifts, even though I struggled to shift it into corners… No hooliganism of that sort occurred. On a fast and smooth 6-speed upshift gearbox, it smoothly pulls you to the national speed limit – and a little further.

As you pick up speed, the standard twin-port exhaust sounds fine, but some more noise would be ideal, especially if you’re traveling and want to grab people’s attention as you pass through traffic.

Frame and Suspension

The engine is mounted in the same tubular steel diamond as the previous model, and there are no complaints from the department here – the chassis is structured and balanced although the fork can be adjusted to an initial 120mm load, it’s a bit unattractive. The front-end setup certainly isn’t as tight as some of the bikes in this class, but they do a pretty decent job. The introduction of the luxurious-looking pro-link single piston rear shock rounds out the package nicely. On Tenerife’s tight twisty roads, everything seems to communicate well despite the basic exterior suspension.
