Weekday Commuter, Weekend Fun
The 35kW learner licence-friendly CB500F street bike gets a hard-edged makeover for 2016 with a more stripped down, muscular look; other upgrades include a larger fuel tank, LED lighting, spring preload adjustable front forks, new lightweight exhaust and adjustable brake lever. Several vibrant paint options complement the aggressive new angles. While its 471cc DOHC engine - producing 35kW and returning 29.4km/litre - and steel diamond-tube frame remain unchanged, the CB500F emerges for 2016 with new aggressively-sculpted lines front to back. The styling shows off the machine’s mechanical forms; LED headlight and taillight are high quality finishing touches.
A larger 16.7 litre fuel tank extends range, and detail improvements such as hinged fuel cap, adjustable-reach brake lever and ‘wave’ style ignition key elevate the overall owning experience. The riding experience is improved with the addition of adjustable spring preload in the front forks, redesigned shift drum for smoother gear changes and new short exhaust muffler, with tuned internals, that emits a crisp howl in keeping with the engine’s engaging power delivery.
