Boon Siew Honda launched the 2019 Honda CBR500R, Honda CB500X and Honda CB500F today to complement their big capacity range in Malaysia.
All three bikes are based on the same engine platform, namely a 471cc, DOHC, 8-valve, parallel-Twin. Honda engineers revised the inlet, exhaust and valve timing for a 4% increase in midrange power and torque. It now produces 49.6 HP at 8,500 RPM and 45 Nm of torque at 6,500 RPM. The engine for better low-down torque, rather than high-end horsepower.
Standard features for the 2019 models are:
- Anti-lock braking system (ABS).
- New rear suspension.
- Assist and slipper clutch.
- Full LED lighting.
- New LCD screen with gear position indicator and shift-up light.
- Strong yet lightweight steel diamond-tube frame.
- The frame is designed to provide the swingarm mounting point close to the engine for optimum weight distribution.
- An added safety feature triggers the hazard lights in case of emergency braking.
2019 Honda CBR500R – From RM 34,499
The CBR500R is the fully-faired sportbike format of the range and features a styling inspired by the company’s CBR1000RR Fireblade. There are a number of model-specific features, of course, including winglets on the bottom half of the fairing.
The clip-on handlebars were repositioned to underneath the top triple clamp for a sportier riding position. The seats are stepped and split into two in true sportbike tradition.
The Honda CBR500R is available in three colours: Grand Prix Red, Max Axis Gray Metallic and Pearl Metalloid White.
2019 Honda CB500F – RM 33,999
The CB500F is the naked/roadster iteration in the line-up. It’s redesigned to appear more aggressive like a streetfighter buy integrating the radiator shrouds to the fuel tank for a more wide-shouldered and muscular look.
The clip-ons from the CBR500R are replaced with a one-piece tapered handlebar for a more upright riding position. Additionally, the battery has been moved away from the intake duct to allow for greater airflow. A dual-exit muffler provides the soundtrack.
The 2019 Honda CB500F is available in three colours: Grand Prix Red, Matt Gun Powder Black Metallic and Pearl Metalloid White.
2019 Honda CB500X – From 36,099
The CB500X is the dual-sport format of the range and is touted as the perfect all-rounder. Its styling has been revised but still retains its unmistakable silhouette.
What sets the CB500X apart from the rest in the line-up are the longer-travel suspension and 19-inch front wheel. They allow the bike to traverse rough roads with more ease.
The front part of the seat where it joins the fuel tank was “shaved down” to make it slimmer, allowing the rider to move around and plant his feet when he stops. The steering has 3 extra degrees of movement from lock to lock.
The 2019 Honda CB500X is also offered in three colours: Grand Prix Red, Matt Gun Powder Black Metallic and Pearl Metalloid White.
