Apart from the newly tweaked suspension, the bike has also gained an updated braking setup. The speed shredding tasks are now performed by dual 296mm wave-pattern discs at the front, which replace the previous single 310mm wave-pattern disc. The brakes are also offered with a safety net of dual-channel ABS. Other major updates on the bike include the use of lightweight wheels with new thinner spokes and a redesigned swingarm.

The powertrain has been retained as the bike continues along with its 471cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine delivering 46.9bhp of power at 8,600rpm and 43Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. Transmission is a six-speed gearbox. 

Following its international debut, expect the updated Honda CB500X to be launched in India by late-2021.
