2021 CB500X Walkaround with VisorDown


THE highly successful range of Honda 500cc machines has been given a 2021 update, with new colours, graphics and Euro5 certification. The updates affect the Honda CB500F, CBR500R, and CB500X models, with the only other bike in the range to use this engine, the CMX500 Rebel, going through an overhaul earlier in the year.

- Simon Hancocks, VisorDown

HONDA has sent us the CB500X to try on for size for a couple of weeks, and after a couple of rides, this could well be one of the leading mid-size adventure-tourers for the A2 category. But before I get ahead of myself, let’s break down what this Honda CB500X is all about.
