Description

With its chrome tank, matching mudguards, oval air box covers and rear shock absorber shrouds the Classic Chrome 500 exudes lustrous charm. Updated for 2017, with ABS braking and re-mapped fuel injection for low emissions, the Classic Chrome also comes with an optional pillion sear pad, in case a passenger needs to hitch a ride.

Front forks, headlamp nacelle and tool boxes have a deep red paint and the tool boxes are finished with gold pin-striping. The fuel tank and mudguards all have a broad red stripe, also finished with gold pin striping. Its solo sprung seat is in brown leatherette and a matching pillion pad is available as an accessory.

Introduced in 2009, the 500cc air cooled cylinder engine retains its classic roots, with bore and stroke of 84 x 90 mm, but in all other respects it is thoroughly modern. Its pushrods are hydraulically operated, the clutch is a wet multi-plate design, fuel is injected electronically and there is a catalytic converter concealed in the chrome silencer.

There is a final concession to the ‘good old days’ with a kick-start lever on the right hand side, giving riders an alternative to the bike’s push-button electric starter.
