A fresh take on custom cool, the CMX500 mixes old- and new-school style and is engaging and fun to ride, with an outlook geared toward firing the imagination of a younger generation of riders.

Superior handling

A lot of todays motorcycles look great standing still, but disappoint once the road gets twisty. At Honda, we set high standards for the way all our bikes handle and feel, and the CMX is a perfect example we've paid just as much attention to the way this bike corners and handles as we have its knockout styling.

Refined suspension

It’s what’s up front that counts most in style and the CMX knocks it out of the park. Of course the front suspension offers precise steering and a plush ride, but the fat 41mm fork tubes give the bike a substantial presence too. The fork is fine-tuned for even better comfort and performance. The rear shocks are now nitrogen filled and have a new, stiffer spring rate too. Just like the front, it's about adding both comfort and performance to your riding experience.

All blacked out

The CMX's tubular steel frame draws fresh, contemporary lines into stripped-back, fat-tyred bobber style. Blacked out to the maximum, with the minimum of paint, are engine pieces, frame and bodywork elements which look great during the day and even better at night. Also forget about having to polish chrome; the CMX's blacked-out exhaust system blends perfectly with the bikes overall look. The biggest plus? The awesome sound that's so important to the riding experience.

Classic instrument shape

Another iconic element combining traditional and new, the Rebel’s instruments take a classic shape and fill it with totally up-to-date digital LCD information. New for 2020, the instruments now include a gear-position indicator and a fuel-consumption display.

Steel rear fender

Real steel never goes out of style. The CMX has a steel rear fender that's either colour-matched to the tank or matte black. The paint looks great and the steel fender helps provide a solid support for the optional/removable passenger seat.

Seat options

Travelling light and on your own? Want to take a friend along? Like the clean look of a solo seat? Like the versatility of a passenger seat? With the CMX you can easily have it both ways, since the optional passenger seat, passenger footpegs and footpeg hangers are all simple, bolt-on parts.

LED lighting

Another critical item in motorcycle design is the headlight. With the CMX you get the best of both worlds. The lamp is bright and precise, while the round nacelle shape, aluminium cast headlight mount and glass lens give the CMX a character that exudes class. LED lighting is where it’s at now; lighter, brighter and requiring fewer lifetime replacements than incandescent bulbs. The CMX has an all-LED lighting package—headlight, taillight, turn signals, even the license-plate light.


The CMX is a Learner Approved Motorcycle
