Power is tuned for strong low-end and precise throttle control, ideal for the needs of the rider who ventures where others turn back. The new slipper clutch makes downshifts smother, and lever pull is 45 per cent  lighter.

The front wheel is now a larger and more off-road ready 19inches, improving bump absorption while offering less deflection, along with more stability and steering confidence on the trails.

A new rear shock, increased suspension travel (front and rear), higher ground clearance and a new tapered handlebar all combine to make the 2019 CB500X a lot more ready for adventure than its predecessor.
