For riders looking to move up from a smaller capacity motorcycle, the naked 2017 CB500F, part of a new family of motorcycles that includes the fully-faired CBR500R and adventure sports CB500X, is a true middleweight with compact dimensions, punchy performance and nimble.


The naked 2017 CB500F's slim form offers great urban ability as well as enjoyable, out-of-town performance. It is also comfortable for a large range of rider sizes (especially smaller riders who can sometimes be intimidated by physically bulky motorcycles) thanks to clever ergonomics. Its DOHC twin-cylinder fuel-injected engine produces 35kW
