Patent drawings leaked by Japanese media hint that Honda might be considering putting the Bulldog concept into production. First showcased over a year ago at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Bulldog was Honda’s take on leisure motorcycling.
Honda has teased the 2016 CB500F, ahead of the motorcycle’s debut at the EICMA Show, later this month. This 500cc streetfighter gets a slew of cosmetic and technical updates to bring it up to date with its rivals like the Suzuki SFV650, Yamaha FZ-07 and the Kawasaki ER-6n.
Honda has recalled 6,954units of the CBR500 and CB500 in the US. The company suspects that some of the motorcycles might be equipped with wrongly manufactured rocker arm shafts that might lead to the bolts to loosen up during the run.
