The third and final model in Honda’s upgraded 500cc range - the CB500F - will be in dealerships from May 16.
Honda has been progressively releasing upgraded versions of its popular 500cc range over recent months, starting with the CB500X a couple of months ago and then the CB500R in April.
This latest addition completes the model upgrades that has brought a new and more aggressive look to the range.
The 471cc DOHC engine and steel diamond-tube frame will remain unchanged but the CB500F has received an aggressive new look.
The new styling is a bold evolution from the previous model, adding more of a streetfigher style to the bike.
The new 2016 CB500F has a larger 16.7-litre fuel tank, LED lighting and spring preload adjustable front forks.
The change to the suspension adds a feature to the bike that is uncommon in its class and makes the bike a little more attractive to riders wanting to adjust the handling to suit their riding style.
Honda has also added a new lightweight exhaust and adjustable brake lever.
Honda’s 500cc range has been popular and has already built a reputation for its punchy performance and all round agility.
The CB500F, like the rest of the 500cc range, is LAMS approved.
It’s available in two bold colours - vibrant Lemon Ice Yellow and a classic Matte Gunpowder Black.
