Honda CB500X price cut by ₹ 1 lakh

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has quietly slashed the price of its middleweight adventure motorcycle Honda CB500X. The motorcycle has been made cheaper by ₹1.08 lakh and is currently offered at ₹5.79 lakh (ex-showroom), while it was launched in March 2021 for ₹6.87 lakh (ex-showroom). Interestingly, a few months back, Honda updated its 500cc line-up in Europe, which also includes the CB500X. The changed model is expected to be launched in India this year, and the recent price cut could be because Honda is looking to liquidate the existing stock before launching the new model.

Honda CB500X comes to India as a Completely Knocked Down (CKD) unit and is assembled at the company’s local plant. The motorcycle is also sold through the company’s premium dealership network and Honda Big Wing. The bike is currently available in two color options – Grand Prix Red and Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic.

Honda CB500X is powered by a 471 cc parallel-twin cylinder, 8-valve, liquid-cooled engine that makes 47 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 43.2 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and the CB500X also gets an assist and slipper clutch, which makes upshifts smoother, and operates rear-wheel lock-up on aggressive downshifts while decelerating.

Honda CB500X takes design cues from the Africa Twin, which features rugged lines and an aggressive stance. It gets full-LED headlight and taillight, wide handlebars, a tall windscreen and 19-inch front and 17-inch rear multi-spoke cast aluminum wheels. Suspension is handled by a 41 mm fork, and a Honda Pro-Link rear suspension with 9-stage spring preload adjustment, while a single 310 mm front disc and 240 mm front disc with dual-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) Braking has been taken care of by Mimi rear discs. The seat height of the bike is 830 mm and the ground clearance is 181 mm.
