Honda CB500X ABS 2015

“Adventure” styling is hot these days, and Honda has taken advantage of that popularity by adding a sharp, beak-nosed treatment to the rider-friendly CB500X. Despite its upright seating, wide handlebar, and relatively long-travel suspension, this midsize twin is actually better suited to soaking up potholes in an urban setting than bouncing along a trail through the desert or woods. For 2014, the CB500X is offered in Pearl White only. Also available: The CB500X ABS is the very same machine equipped with antilock brakes.
