Honda, a car manufacturer, debuted the CL500, a retro-style scrambler, as its newest cruiser at the 2022 EICMA. The sixth motorcycle in this engine series is this new 500 cc model. Honda has not yet decided whether or not to introduce the CL500 in India.
It's interesting to note that the Honda CL500 was influenced by the CL motorcycles of the 1960s and 1970s. The goal of Honda, according to the firm, was to develop a lightweight motorcycle with off-road capabilities. The bike should thus function well off-road and be rideable in urban areas.
In terms of power and torque, the scrambler's 471 cc parallel twin-cylinder engine makes 46 PS and 43.4 Nm. The ECU has been customized for the CL500. To improve acceleration, the terminal drive is condensed. A six-speed gearbox and an assist/slipper clutch are included with the CL500.
The primary frame of the Honda CL500 is made of tubular steel trellis design. Long-travel suspension, which consists of front 41 mm telescopic forks and rear adjustable shocks, handles the suspension work. The bike's front wheel is 19 inches in diameter, while the rear wheel is 17 inches. The automaker employs tyres with a block design.
ABS modulation is specially matched for the front and rear brakes to improve performance on a range of conditions, including light off-road.
The height of the bike is reachable at 790 mm. This scrambler's handle bars are elevated so the rider may grab onto them when trail riding. Tank cushions are also available to help riders hold the gasoline tank. It holds 12 litres of fuel, and according to Honda, the bike has a 300-kilometer range.
The lighting components on the bike are completely LED for aesthetic purposes. Honda also offers Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) technology, which activates the rear indicators as danger lights under abrupt and heavy braking. The instrument cluster is made of negative LEDs.
At ECIMA 2022, Honda also unveiled their latest adventure tourer bike, the XL750 Transalp ADV. The bike is a middleweight class competitor to the BMW F 850 GS, Ducati Multistrada V2, and Triumph 850 Sport, according to reports.
