Since it was first introduced, the CMX500 has been popular due to it’s unique styling, combining timeless look with a contemporary style all of it’s own, and accessibility, with low seat height, relaxed riding position, lightweight and proven 471cc parallel-twin engine with user-friendly powerband. Modern features like full LED lighting, digital instruments with gear position indicator and slipper/assist clutch make the package even more attractive. But what really makes the CMX500 special is the ability to be a blank canvas to let you express yourself, making it your bike. The CMX500 is available in both Standard and S Edition. The S Edition comes with factory-fit headlight cowl with smoke screen, retro front fork covers and gaiters and a special diamond-stitch style seat.

Twin cylinder engine

The light and narrow 471cc parallel cylinder engine offers plenty of power and torque in the midrange, striking the perfect balance of what a mid-sized motorcycle engine should be. PGM-FI continuously ensures the correct fuel mixture is delivered for the conditions, giving you crisp throttle response at all times.

Disc brakes with ABS

Front and rear disc brakes, combined with standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps you make smoother, more controlled stops under less-than-ideal riding conditions.

Digital instrument panel

Easy-to-read LCD screen features digital speedometer, gear position indicator, clock, odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge and illuminated engine diagnostic indicators.

Tubular steel frame

The tubular steel frame grips the engine in three places and is designed to be as narrow as possible around the rider’s inseam, while the bolt-on cast aluminium subframe provides further scope for customisation.

Low Seat

The 690mm high seat is comfortable when you ride, and it makes it easier to flat-foot it at stoplights or in parking lots. Combined with the mid-mounted footpegs, they ensure a natural riding position, with balanced and neutral steering.

LED lighting

Bright LED headlights and taillight deliver great visibility.
