Honda brought a new Scrambler, the CL500, to the Milan International Motorcycle Show (EICMA).
The Scrambler scrambler style is part of a global motorcycle trend in recent years, as it combines commuting with driving pleasure and is increasingly popular among motorcycle enthusiasts for its novelty, individuality and potential for retrofit.
The CL500 released by Honda is actually a continuation. Honda's earliest CL model originated in 1962, and its last generation was named CL400 in 2008.
The CL500 is closely related to the CM500. For example, it is equipped with a 471cc two-cylinder engine with a maximum output of 45.6hp and a peak torque of 43.4 nm. It has a sliding clutch and four additional rear sprocket teeth for better acceleration. The re-tuned dual exhaust has a heavier low-frequency sound than the CM.
On the design level, the appearance of the car looks relatively simple, a continuation of the popular style in the 1960s and 1970s, equipped with fuel tank pad, upturned exhaust, front fork protective sleeve and short fender, there is an obvious off-road style, the overall style is quite handsome.
Different from the CM500, the new car adds a number of new features, such as full LED lights, negative LCD display meters, ESS (emergency brake signal) technology, and so on.
Despite the high off-road winds, the CL500 has a low seat height of 790mm and a reconditioning mass of just 192kg, making it easy for even a novice to handle. It also has 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels for handling unpaved surfaces.
