New for 2024, the NX500 is Honda’s A2-compatible adventurer, with rugged style. Power and torque derive from the 471cc engine – at 35kW and 43Nm. Honda Selectable Torque Control comes as standard, delivering hugely enjoyable acceleration feel.

New wheels save 1.5kg of unsprung weight and are matched by revised settings for the 41mm Showa SFF-BP USD forks and rear shock. Dual discs up front are worked by two piston calipers. A brand-new LED headlight opens up better visibility at night while a new 5-inch TFT screen offers Honda RoadSync smartphone connectivity, operated by a simplified and backlit 4-way toggle switch. The adventure begins.
