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.
The assisted clutch supports smoother gear changes with a lighter lever.
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.
Front suspension is made of Showa 41mm Separate Function Fork Big Piston (SFF-BP) inverted forks.
The easy-to-read 100mm ring houses a negative LCD display. The minimalist screen features digital speedometer, gear position indicator, clock, odometer, and illuminated engine diagnostic indicators.
The classic round headlight evokes retro styling but also contains modern LED lighting for greater on road visibility.
Light and strong, the 35mm diameter steel diamond-tube frame gives you plenty of feedback as road surfaces change. The shape and position of the engine mounts combined with the frame’s rigidity balance keep vibration to a minimum.
For ease of control, the CL500 position is placed upright in a natural comfortable posture. There’s plenty of room on the flat seat to move back and forward allowing for a more aggressive attitude.
