Milan Motor Show 2012: Honda CB500F, another option for the A2

Of course the initials of this new Honda model presented in the Milan Motor Show 2012 they are well known to us. Thus, once again we are witnessing the rebirth of one of the brand's legendary models. With its 497cc, -LC, 8V, DOHC, PGM-FI, 48hp inline twin cylinder, for which Honda ensures a range of more than 400 km, together with its 15.7 liter tank, it will perhaps make us once again witness the birth of a best seller if its price, still unconfirmed, adapts to these times.

And how could it be otherwise with the initials CB on its sides, the motorcycle has to be distinguished by being a versatile motorcycle, with a seat height from the ground of 790 mm, which will allow a comfortable use for all types of drivers.

Suitable for daily use in the city but without giving up on the road in search of curves as indicated by its cycle part: 320 mm wave disc front, 240 mm rear disc, 41 mm fork with bars, Pro-link rear shock adjustable in nine positions. You can also order it with ABS.

Ultimately we know that Honda knows how to make CB`s now they have to show us with the price, who also know how to sell them in a turbulent market.
