Honda has launched a range of motorcycles in Milan at the EICMA event including the naked CB500F, the CBR500R and the CB500X.
Upgrades across the middleweight range include LED lights, adjustable pre-load on the front suspension, adjustable brake levers and larger fuel tanks with a new, hinged fuel cap and something called ‘wave’ style ignition keys.
The CB500F is a naked street bike with a stripped-down make-over (above). It will come in six different colour options for 2016. The CBR500R has a more ‘Blade-style cosmetic package, kind of, with a pointy, upswept tail.
Both the F and the R have a new, shorter exhaust end can.
Elsewhere, the CB500X’s revisions for 2016 include a 100mm taller, adjustable windscreen and a larger fuel tank which Honda says means it now has a range in excess of 500km.
