Deliveries are expected to start in March. Regarding features, NX500 gets a new 5-inch digital TFT instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity via Honda RoadSync, in-built navigation, and a backlit four-way toggle switch.

The discontinuation of the CB500X led to the introduction of the Honda NX500. It will be powered by the same liquid-cooled 471cc, parallel-twin motor that churns out 47.5hp of peak power and 43Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated with a six-speed gearbox. The bike weighs just 196kg and has a seat height of 830mm - that would add more accessibility to average Indian users. The bike gets a diamond frame with  USD forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The braking duties are handled by twin disc brakes at the front and a single disc at the rear. The brakes are by Nissin and get a dual-channel ABS as standard. The prices are expected to be around Rs 6-7 lakhs. The bike goes up against the Kawasaki Versys 650.
