The Honda CB500F occupies a unique spot in our lineup. It's an aggressively-styled streetfighter that’s great for a wide range of riders. And for 2019, we've made some serious improvements. It now has more power, more style, a nicer sound, and a whole bunch of other functional upgrades. What didn’t change is this bike’s mission to put a new generation of riders on one of the best street machines possible, with a full range of opportunities ahead.
