Honda 2020 CB500X ABS Adventure Motorcycle – Features and Price
Engine / Drivetrain
The new Honda 2020 CB500X ABS Adventure Motorcycle features a powerful engine optimized to deliver a massive amount of acceleration and power. An all-new fuel-droplet size optimized for improved spray penetration in intake, resulting in better combustion that creates linear power from the first crack of the throttle to rpm redline. The motorcycle comes with a small battery and it’s carefully positioning of components enables good air-intake volume. The linear velocity stacks separate the cylinders making a minimal turbulence, resulting in good power at every rpm.
The valve timing maximizes torque for a good roll-on response. At the same time, the model-specific fuel-injection settings allow linear power delivery, emphasizing low- and midrange power and precise throttle response. The muffler comes with a large volume before and after the catalytic converter. The backpressure is optimized for low-end solid midrange power with a dual-outlet muffler tip resulting in a race-sounding exhaust note to match intensity.
An all-new slipper clutch design adapts to load stresses for good hook-up under heavy acceleration and minimal engine braking under downshifting. The clutch design with engineering is inspired by CBR1000RR that enables light lever pull, especially in stop-and-go traffic.
