2016 Honda CB500F first look

With new look, bigger tank, and pre-load-adjustable fork

HONDA has just released these first images of the 2016 CB500F, which has received a round of updates for 2016 including new suspension and styling. 

The A2-compliant middleweight now has one litre extra fuel capacity at 16.7 litres, a pre-load-adjustable fork and LED tail and headlights. 

It's gained an adjustable brake lever and what Honda calls 'a new stripped-down, muscular look complemented by a range of six vibrant colour options'.

It's also got a new 'lightweight' silencer according to the firm. 

It was announced this morning along with an updated Integra and NC750S.

It's due to debut at the Eicma motorcycle show in Milan next week. 

Honda also recently revealed an updated NC750XCB500X and CBR500R.
