1971 Honda CB 500 Four

HARMONIOUS IN SHAPES AND PROPORTIONS,

it amazes for its excellent handling and refined technical solutions.


The 500 Four was born in 1971, two years later the very successful 750.

But the project is completely new: 4-stroke 4-cylinder engine, 5-speed gearbox, 275 mm front disc brake.

The starting is electric as well as pedal.

The gearbox is on the left with the first down, like today's bikes.

The friction is gentle and does not require any effort on the forearm.

The CB 500 does not shine in shot, but the engine always remains round and smooth in response, even at low revs.

Aesthetically it is very accurate in detail, from the iconic "candy starlight gold" color with embossed logos, to the brilliant chrome plating.

The 4 "trombone" mufflers with inimitable sound are beautiful!

It is a real class touring bike, superior to all the competition.

The 500 is extremely comfortable and easy to ride, gentle and reliable, suitable even for less experienced riders. The low saddle position makes things really easy.

The braking is up to expectations, certainly more effective than the standard of the time.

A light bike with a stable set-up that, apart from the slightly too soft suspension, never reserves abrupt or sudden changes in trajectory.

Surely the 500 is the favorite of those who want to enjoy the tour in complete relaxation. It is the ideal choice for those looking for a brilliant and agile guide, but touristic and comfortable!

Really suitable for everyone!
