Honda CB 500 F 2015

The CB 500 is the archetype of the basic roadster, THE motorcycle for access to large cubes, the machine that Yffic has never been able to part with. Unmissable in its 1993 – 2003 version, it was less convincing in its last generation 2004 – 2007. Today, a challenge presents itself to it.

Its strengths have changed but its arguments remain. Be accessible, fun, economical, and the first flirt of a biker.

Anyone who has had a CB 500 will share this opinion: a machine that does not overflow with watts but voluntary with a certain revival for high revs, a versatile silhouette bordering on tasteless, and a disconcerting ease. Today, CB rhymes with sex appeal. Triangulated shoulders, stylized headlight with blue cowling and eyebrows, small shoe, rims with ultra thin poles; the line is inspired in turn by the 600 Hornet and the CB 1000 R. It is lively to the eye, pleasant to watch, and much more flattering than usual.

Young rascal, it’s not enough to shorten the skirt; the thigh must also respond to the stimulation. For this, what does the new twin installed below tell us? Functional, economical, strategic. Should we dwell on the manufacturing techniques similar to those used for the CBR 600 and 1000 RR, on the valves with a diameter of 26 mm at the intake and 21.5 mm at the exhaust or on the timing chain? who receives a vanadium surface treatment? Leave that to the field of sports, the country where technology is king. Let us focus especially on the 35 Kw developed by the two bowls. A power that is quite modest, sufficient to accelerate, not enough to strain, and perfectly in line with the A2 license regulations. We can bet that the 47.5 horses and 4.4 mkg of the CB 500 F will have the right answer in the usual regimes. Honda has favored availability over pure power, by equipping the 471 cm3 with square dimensions and a crankshaft with balance weights favoring torque..

The CB 500 is an access bike, not a road carving knife. No need to install a Superbike chassis for him, which would be of no use to him anyway. With a simple but well thought-out framework, most of the users’ requests are met and costs are limited. A diamond-type steel beam frame, a 41 mm fork, a rectangular tube swingarm, one brake disc per wheel, standard ABS and a weight of 192 kilos all wet, here is a summary of the skeleton of the CB. As its tank can accommodate 15.7 liters of fuel and its consumption is announced at 3.7 L / 100, Miss Honda can take you over 400 km without refueling. Life on board will be made easier by a saddle culminating at 790 mm, a not very cheerful but complete and full digital dashboard, rubbers on the footrests filtering vibrations, good passenger handles, and a riding position defined for satisfy a wide range of users.

A good mouth, a simple frame, a special A2 engine, the CB 500 F intends to rekindle the flame of its illustrious ancestor. To enrich the picture, it comes together with a sporty version R and an X version typed trail SUV.
