A2-Compliant Twin-Cylinder Engine
Strong torque off the bottom and through the middle of the rev-range, with 43Nm peak, for the responsive acceleration all riders enjoy on, and off, road.
Powerful New Headlight
Throws out strong beam penetration and wide light distribution either side – which means you see a lot more when cornering at night.
Rally-Spec Wind Protection
For enhanced comfort over a long day’s ride the purposeful fairing and tall screen combine to direct airflow neatly over and around. Sharp graphics add a hint of competition style.
Fully Connected Colour TFT Display
New optical bonding technology to reduce glare and improve readability, the new 5-inch screen is intuitive to use and features the smartphone connectivity of Honda Roadsync.
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
On the road, HSTC manages rear wheel traction in all conditions, especially in the rain. On dirt or gravel it can be switched off completely, for maximum drive.
Showa SFF-BP USD Forks
This is class leading suspension. 41mm Separate Function-Big Piston forks are set for precise reaction and feel, with dual discs for powerful braking.
Go Short. Go long.
Go where you choose. Effortlessly at home in the city but built for adventure, the rugged NX500 blends a tough off-road silhouette with modern off-road-inspired design. Long-travel suspension absorbs the urban rough and tumble just as it does gravel trails helped by new, lightweight wheels. The 17.7L fuel tank holds plenty of range. And a relaxed riding position – and natural control of wide handlebars – are matched to an aerodynamic package that neatly channels airflow.
Make The Connection
This bike’s got your back. The 5-inch full-colour TFT display is all new, operated by a backlit switchgear with a very natural hand position allowing better visibility in all conditions. Both have been designed together for easy use, and the screen is engineered to minimise glare in bright sunlight. It also offers full connectivity through the Honda RoadSync app. A first in class, for Android and iOS smartphones, it means you can access on-screen turn-by-turn navigation, make and receive calls or listen to music while you ride.
