The Honda CB500F - an all-new middleweight do-it-all machine that is expected to deliver great results for the Japanese company, especially in Asian markets

Honda have released full details and the first official high-res pics of its new commuter bike, the 2013 CB500F. Pitched as an entry-level full-size machine that’s reasonably sporty, is perfect for commuting in the city and which is also suitable for mid-distance touring, the CB500F takes some styling cues from the Honda CB1000R and is powered by a liquid-cooled fuel-injected DOHC 8-valve parallel-twin that produces 47bhp and 43Nm of torque, and returns up to 27km/l in terms of fuel-efficiency.

The Honda CB500F gets a tubular steel chassis, 41mm telescopic forks, Pro-Link preload-adjustable rear monoshock, 17-inch cast aluminium wheels, 120/70 (front) and 160/60 (rear) tyres and disc brakes at both ends, with optional ABS. Kerb weight is 190kg. Given the bike’s 15.7-litre fuel tank, range is over 400km, which should keep those happy who intend to go touring on this middleweight Honda.

Part of a new trio of 500cc machines, the CB500F will be key in Honda’s bid to increase its market share in emerging economies, especially various Asian markets.
