2024 Honda NX500 Review – Specs

The Honda NX history in the United States was pretty darn short. We’re talking shorter than a T-Rex’s arms. These two bikes, the NX650 and NX250, were like flash-in-the-pan replacements for the discontinued XL-series dual-sport bikes. Back in the days before “adventure bike” was even a thing, these NXes tried to straddle the line between street and off-road. And let me tell you, they didn’t quite nail it. They were like that friend who says they can handle spicy food, but starts sweating after just one bite. Sure, they stuck around for a couple of years—1988 and 1989—but they were soon overshadowed by the XR650L and XR250L, which were like the off-road gods. Those XRs put the NXes to shame. But hey, guess who’s making a comeback? That’s right, the NX designation is back in town with the 2024 Honda NX500. This bad boy is being unleashed on the European market as the replacement for the CB500X adventure bike. Let’s hope it’s more than just a short-lived affair this time!

Get ready to lighten up your ride with the 2024 Honda NX500! This baby takes inspiration from its sibling, the trusty CB500X, but adds its own special touch. And one of the first things you’ll notice is that it’s shed some serious pounds! At the curb, the NX500 is a whole seven pounds lighter than the CB500X. Talk about a weight loss journey!

The secret to shedding pounds? It’s all in the wheels! The NX500’s wheels are like mini supermodels, flaunting a sleek five-spoke cast aluminum design and boasting a whopping six-pound weight loss compared to those chunky CB500X wheels. And hey, it’s not just about looking good – shedding unsprung weight that’s also rotating mass is like winning the weight loss lottery!

But wait, there’s more! Those lighter wheels also bring some suspension shake-ups. The Showa SFF-BP fork manages to survive this major transformation, but not without some serious makeover in the form of new damping settings and spring rate. It’s like giving your suspension a whole new wardrobe to match those fabulous new wheels!

Alright, check this out! The fuel mapping has gotten a fancy update, people!

We just want to point out the fabulous new makeover the NX500 has undergone. They’ve used all-new plastic and it really gives the bike a more purposeful and sleek appearance. Keep in mind that the photos you see are of a fully decked-out NX, complete with crash bars and extra lighting.

Now, here’s the thing. American Honda hasn’t made any official announcements about bringing the 2024 CB500X to the US, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the NX500 will be our lucky charm. In the meantime, we can give you the lowdown on what’s happening across the pond. The NX500 is available in the United Kingdom in three different color options, and the price tag sits at £6799. If we convert that money into US currency at the current exchange rate, it comes out to roughly $8310. However, we have high hopes that the US price will be less expensive, especially considering the ’23 CB500X has an MSRP of $7299.
