Honda CB500X Features:
It's a mid-sized adventure bike, but its overall appearance doesn't justify its premium range. The bike is not for hardcore off-road drive, but for long-distance rides in urban set-up. The semi-fairing bike has a sharp design for the headlight and heighted windscreen. The front wheel is a new aluminium one that's 100 grams lighter than the one used earlier. It has a full-digital instrument cluster with features like odometer, tachometer, speedometer, low fuel indicator, and low oil indicator, among others. A noticeable feature in the bike is Emergency Stop Signal which detects sudden braking and automatically turns on the hazard lights. There is Honda Ignition Security System (HISS) too that automatically negates the starting of the bike via electronic control.
