2012-11-13 12:52

HONDA'S NEW MODEL ASSAULT: Honda's new CB500X (above) is the latest in a host of models including the naked CB1100, NSC50R scooter and SH125i flagship small commuter.

LONDON, England - Honda has announced five upgraded models for its 2013 line-up ahead of the 2012 EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

CB500X, CB500F and CBR500R

Honda's new middleweight bikes are powered by a new parallel twin 35kW engine. The new bikes are equipped with ABS as standard.

The high-specced CBR500R borrows design cues from the CBR1000RR Fireblade and will target veteran riders.

The naked CB500F, inspired by the CB1000R, is an ideal full-size motorcycle offering an affordable price and low running costs, Honda said.

The CB500X is the latest addition to Honda’s range of adventure motorcycles. The model is taller, and has a longer wheelbase and bigger fuel tank than its siblings. The CB500X's styling is derived from the 1200cc V4 Crosstourer.

NSS300 Forza

The NSS300 Forza is a new high specification, mid-size scooter. The model sports a compact chassis and offers storage for two helmets.

CBR600RR

Honda’s Supersports jewel has been significantly upgraded for 2013. The CBR600RR design sports MotoGP-inspired bodywork and aerodynamics.

Handling has been improved with the addition of 41mm piston forks, a refined rear suspension and new 12-spoke wheels, while the remapped fuel injection and air intake control settings result in quicker throttle response, the company said. The 2013 CBR600RR will also be available in a new Repsol colour scheme.
