New colours and muffler for the 2017 Honda CB500XAPOSTED BY Raja Danielle ON 11 August 2017
Boon Siew Honda Sdn Bhd (BSH) has introduced the 2017 Honda CB500X that is equipped with a new muffler casing and available in three new colours: Asteroid Black Metallic, Candy Rosy Red, and Pearl Horizon White.
The motorcycle is powered by a DOHC 471cc, liquid-cooled parallel twin that is paired to a six-speed transmission to provide an excellent big bike experience. The ‘triangle’ proportion of crankshaft, main shaft and countershaft is very similar to that of Honda’s four-cylinder RR engines and much of the internal structure and engineering is taken directly from both the CBR600RR and CBR1000RR.
This purpose-built lightweight power plant that uses a square bore and stroke of 67mm x 66.8mm delivers superb peak power of 37kW at 8,500rpm and a maximum torque reaching 44Nm at 7,000rpm. The bore size of 67mm is identical to that of the CBR600RR. The piston shape is based upon those used in the CBR1000RR to reduce piston ‘noise’ at high rpm.
The motorcycle also carries a 17.5-liter fuel tank that enables riders to go further than ever.
The Honda CB500X are available in Honda Impian showrooms and the recommended showroom price starts from RM31,893.28 (CB500X – Standard Type) to RM35,391.28 (CB500XA – ABS Type). Prices include GST but exclude road tax, insurance and registration. The model comes with a two year or 20,000km manufacturing warranty (whichever comes first).
