Honda 2019 CB500X ABS Adventure Motorcycle – Features and Price


The CB500X’s 471cc water-cooled engine was revised this year to provide more power and torque in mid-range driving. It is equipped with parallel cylinders with double overhead cams. Lightweight, narrow, and powerful; it happens to achieve the perfect balance that a motorcycle engine should achieve. The Honda 2019 CB500X ABS Adventure Motorcycle adopts an upright riding posture.

Also, this year we have provided it with a new, harder, high-quality tapered handlebar, which can increase steering feedback. The seat is narrower, making it easier to place your feet in parking lots or traffic lights. The DOHC water-cooled parallel twin-cylinder engine uses 67 mm x 66.8 mm square holes and strokes to achieve the best combination of strong low-end torque and excellent high-end power. It possesses increased horsepower and torque in 2019 by 4% for more sporty performance.

The use of 180-degree crank pins and the balance shaft at the rear of the cylinder minimizes engine vibration, which also helps reduce the size of the engine. The new anti-slip clutch not only helps prevent the rear wheels from locking when downshifting. This clutch also reduces the force on the joystick by nearly half, especially in urban traffic or long-distance travel, which helps reduce driver fatigue.

PGM-FI electronic fuel injection maintains the engine running efficiently under all conditions and ensures a responsive throttle response. To maximize the efficiency of intake and exhaust, the outline from the air filter through the intake port to the exhaust pipe should be as straight as possible. This part is by relocating the battery away from the rear of the intake pipe of the intake box location.

The airflow in the exhaust system, now with dual outlet pipes, has been improved, resulting in additional power, and the edges of the exhaust notes sound sportier. The four valves in each DOHC cylinder head have narrow valve stems. It reduces weight and friction and improves efficiency. After careful flow analysis of the cooling system, the resulting pump is small and light. But it is still sufficient to keep the engine in an optimal condition at high output levels.

Additional Features

Lightweight and compact roller-rocker assembly and shim valve adjustment device can reduce the valve spring load to reduce friction and provide a small cylinder head. The new pins in the silent cam chain have been treated with vanadium, which reduces friction and improves durability. Lightweight pistons use the same latest manufacturing process as in Honda CBR1000RR. To guarantee proper cylinder shape, the engine uses the same centrifugally cast thin-walled sleeve as CBR1000RR.

The internal drain structure of the oil pump adopts the same design as CBR1000RR, which can reduce friction, improve aeration performance, and simplify the shape of the oil pan. The new gear indicator and adjustable upshift indicator make it easier to use a smooth six-speed gearbox. The design of the light-weight diamond-shaped steel frame allows a certain degree of yield. It can better respond to road changes and deliver the correct amount of feedback to the rider.

For better off-road performance and overall comfort, the Pro-Link rear suspension has a five-stage preload adjustable shock absorber that can increase 17 mm of travel. The traditional 41 mm telescopic fork with preload adjustability can increase the stroke by 10 mm. The new single-tube rear shock absorber replaces the double-tube design of the previous model. The large-diameter piston of the Honda 2019 CB500X ABS Adventure Motorcycle gives an outstanding suspension response and better heat dissipation.

The rear of the frame is designed to accommodate a seat height of 830 mm, which allows most riders to place their feet on the ground when they stop quickly. By shaving the shoulders at the front, the contour of the seat is also reduced, which makes cycling more comfortable and can be parked on the ground. The wave brake rotor with the best heat dissipation performance is lighter than the traditional disk of the same diameter. It helps to reduce the unsprung weight of the bicycle further.

The dual-piston calipers on the front and the single-piston calipers on the rear provide powerful but easily controlled braking force. Also, the two-channel ABS gives you extra peace of mind on roads with low traction. An adjustable brake lever allows you to get the perfect fit to get the best comfort and control. Larger 19-inch front wheels (increased from 17 inches) and more aggressive front and rear tires help make the CB500X better handle rough surfaces. The lightweight cast-aluminum wheels not only look beautiful but also contribute to the bike’s excellent maneuverability.


The updated seat provides long-distance comfort while counteracting the increase in suspension travel. Thereby it provides the ideal seat height for off-road riding. Also, the windshield is 20 mm taller to offer better weather protection.

The sleek bodywork includes a new front hood that exposes most of the engine and has an original street-fighter appearance. Bright LED lights and turn signal lights keep weight and power consumption low. The ergonomics are carefully configured to ensure unrestricted riding posture. It allows you to efficiently operate in the urban area, easily touch the ground, and provide excellent comfort on long-distance road trips.

There is a lot of fun to ride between refueling. The common space under the seat can accommodate U-locks, wet weather equipment, or other items.
