The Biggest Value in the 500 Class.
Everyone’s looking for the one motorcycle that can do it all—that you can start out on, that fits a wide variety of riders, that can take you to work, school, or on a weekend ride. Used to be there were tons of bikes in this “standard” class. Not so many these days. But here’s the good news: The Honda CB500F is probably the best do-it-all middle-displacement streetbike around.
Big surprise—Honda revolutionized the world of motorcycling with their midsized twins a generation ago. And here’s the intel on the latest members of the family. With its minimal bodywork, a classic riding position, and a 30.9-inch seat height that fits a wide range of riders, the CB500F is going to suit just about any rider. It has a powerful twin-cylinder engine and a wide, user-friendly powerband. It’s a great bike to start out on, or to come back to, or to just ride forever. It embraces the best of motorcycling, and doesn’t get sidetracked with too much flavor-of-the-week design. You want an authentic ride? It just doesn’t get any better than a CB500F.
