It should play a part in improving response from the front end as well as being absorbent on rough roads with its 132mm of suspension travel. Honda has replaced the front wheel with a new aluminum unit, which is 100 grams lighter than the previous one.
You will also notice another significant change up front in the form of a new braking set-up. The 310mm single disc has been replaced with twin disc brakes, while the 296mm disc has been replaced with twin-piston Nissan calipers.
Honda Motorcycles says that on the list of mechanical changes is the new swingarm, which is about 1kg lighter than the previous unit, but equally sturdier. Adding a breath of fresh air to the 2022 Honda CB500X is the ‘Pearl Organic Green/Black’ colorway that is new for 2022.
Apart from these updates, the Honda CB500X remains the same as the outgoing bike. It uses the same 471cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine as the existing Honda CB500X, which churns out 47.6 bhp at 8,500rpm and 43.2Nm of torque at 6,500rpm.
It is being told that the 2022 Honda CB500X is expected to go on sale in India soon. It will be interesting to see if the company keeps the price of the bike higher at Rs 6.87 lakh than the current Honda CB500X, which is quite a bit more.
