The Honda CB500 Four was a motorcycle introduced by Honda early in the 1970s, appearing at the London Racing and Sporting Motorcycle Show in February, 1972. It was similarly styled to the CB750, but smaller and lighter, with the manufacturer's claims of 50 bhp output and a top speed of 115 mph. Like the earlier CB750 it had a single front hydraulic disc brake, rear drum brake, electric starter, and sohc eight-valve engine. The four-into-four exhaust pipes echoed those of the CB750. Reviewing the 1972 show models, UK monthly magazine Motorcycle Mechanics described the CB500 as "one of the 'show stealers'. Four cylinders, in-line across the frame, four carburettors and single overhead camshaft motor, coupled to a five-speed gearbox give this 500 cc machine the performance of a 650 twin cylinder bike". It was deemed a better handling bike than the larger model, although it was still no featherweight at 201 kg (443 lb) (dry)
