With its wide handlebar and upright seating position, the CB500X is a great around-town bike, propelled by a sewing-machine-smooth 471cc parallel-twin that’s remarkably fuel efficient. What’s new for 2016? Well, the enhancements start with what Honda calls “sharper, tougher styling,” as well as a taller windscreen, LED lighting front and rear, and a new muffler. Other improvements include adjustable fork preload, an “improved” shock setting, a hinged fuel cap, and an adjustable front-brake lever. Honda also says the 2016 CB500X has improved shift feel and a wave-style key.
