EICMA: Honda’s CB500F gets visual update

As we said last week, Honda’s CB500F has gotten a visual update, with bodywork update.

The new styling gives the bike a more angular look, with a slightly slammed-looking front end. It also replaces the previous headlight, which was ugly but provided excellent windflow, especially considering this is an unfaired naked bike. When ridden back-to-back, the CB500F was really not much worse than its fully-faired CBR500 counterpart; hopefully the restyled bike keeps that trend going.

Presumably, the new CB500F will be available in Canada next spring.
