Honda CBF500

The perfect step up from learner bikes to the big leagues, the CBF500 gives you an exhilarating blend of performance, style and comfort in a midsized riding machine designed for anyone to enjoy. Whether you're just starting out on your first real motorcycle, or returning to the fold after a long time away, the CBF500 reassuringly lets you know you've come to the right place at the right time.

Its high-revving 499cc liquid-cooled dual overhead cam (DOHC) parallel-twin engine provides quick response and strong acceleration for running errands, seeing friends and taking sporty rides in the hills, while its lightweight and smooth-handling chassis combines with a low seat height to deliver swift, assured handling when you want it, and a smooth ride everywhere you go.

The CBF500 is also available in a special ABS version that adds the smooth, confidence-inspiring control of Antilock Brakes to its mix of attractive features. Figure in its wide range of optional accessories, and the compact, easy-to-ride CBF500 adds up to more fun in the saddle than you ever thought possible. More than the sum of its parts, the CBF500 is an exhilarating motorcycle that you really have to try out and see for yourself.
