Honda CB500X: our first drive review
The Honda CB500X is elaborate on the same frame as his/her sisters, roadster CB500F and “sporting” the CBR500R. All the same machine line entry which does not have large-thing to envy large.
Third of recent family CB 500 elaborate on a common platform, the “X” declines the trail kind with urban vocation. In common with his/her sisters: tally steel of the Diamond type, twin-cylinder of 471 Cm3 and 48 ch, and almost identical simple part-cycle.
The “X” is distinguished however: larger tank (17.3 liters against 15.7 L), suspensions with greater clearance (140 mm against 120), and tires with the profile trail, large handlebar and adjustable protection…
With the handlebar, the impression of comfort dominates: legs at ease (for less than 1.80 m), saddles roomy hardly higher that the roadster “F” (810 mm), broad handlebar offering a good handiness, protection of the bust and legs…
Test Honda CB500X: engine “allowed A2”
Even if it is a linear hair, the parallel twin does not disappoint. The power of 47.6 CH and the couple of 4.6 m/kg with 7000 tr/min are enough to make take off 195 announced kg of this Honda CB500SX.
Test Honda CB500X: instrument panel
Behind the flattering scented with amber color, way glasses of skiing specific to model X, the entirely digital instrumentation in fact not very readable. In complement of the rev counter with bar-graph, one finds 2 trips, a calculator of consumption, a calculation of the km on the way in reserve and a watch. It’s a pity that the unit either if pokey!
Test Honda CB500X: common platform
Already seen at Honda and taken again on recent family CB 500, the principle of the common platform makes it possible to tighten the costs while answering varied waiting.
Test Honda CB500X: that pumps
The 20 mm of clearance offer a surplus of comfort, but the modifications in order to rigidify the shock absorber postpones are not convincing. As soon as the rhythm accelerates, that pumps.
Test Honda CB500X: reasonable
Revisions every 12,000 km, completion of good omen face proof against time especially, reduced consumption: difficult not to currently regard X as the most reasonable motorcycle on the market.
Test Honda CB500X: protection
The small adjustable jump-wind does not make a miracle at motorway speed, but the protection of the bust and legs is welcome. The additional capacity of 1.6 liter in the tank (17.3 L on the whole) offers an autonomy which wills one suits with the travelers.
Test Honda CB500X: effective braking
Effective, braking with simple disc second perfectly a part-cycle healthy. ABS, not coupled, is delivered of series.
Flexible on the setting on the angle, light at exit, it part-cycle confers on X a reassuring behavior, consolidated by an effective braking. Rather discrete, ABS (not coupled) is delivered of series. The back is adjustable suspension, pump as soon as rhythm is increased.
The parallel twin with the tuning fork of the part-cycle: controlled injection, flexible gear box and maximum power – specifically developed for the license A2 (47.6 CH) – without surprise. And it does not disappoint. A linear hair, its couple is sufficient (4.6 mkg with 7,000 tr/min) to make take off 195 kg announced in functioning order.
Passed 6,000 turns, a light start of promptness even allows, for example, an easy going beyond while descending a report. More bluffing remains its appetite of sparrow: 3.5 l/100 km in “eco drives”, maximum 5 liters while having fun. Result: more than 450 km with full.
With 5,990 € (400 of more than “F”), this small trail does not make pay very expensive its supplement of comfort. Revisions every 12,000 km, completion of good omen face proof against time and, especially, reduced consumption: difficult not to currently regard Honda cb500x as the most reasonable motorcycle in the market.
