Question CMX 500 A, CMX 500 AC and CMX500A AC differences?

Can you fine folk please help me understand the differences between these model designations? I keep running into these labels when I'm hunting for items for my 2018 Honda Rebel 500 ABS and it confuses me as to which I actually have.


Thank you in advance for your help!


(I reviewed the various forums and this seemed to fit the best. If I have posted incorrectly, forgive me)

No clue what I'm doing, but I'm doing it anyway!

I’m wondering if the C is an Area/State/Provincial/Country code. On my bill of sale mine is CMX500AH. On my insurance it’s CMX500A as well as in my bikes VIN label.

According to the repair manual the cmx500 with the A designation model does not have antilock brake system, or an evap canister, or passenger seat. The AC model has the evap canister, no abs and no passenger seat. The CM model has the passenger seat. The CMX 500A with the AC designation has antilock brakes, evap canister and no passenger seat. The CMX500A with that CM designation has ABS, a passenger seat but no evap canister.

CM at the end, I believe is what was meant.

They are ALL CMX named...

Mine has ABS with a model number of CMX500A on the bike. Are the model labels country specific?

not sure - there seems to be more going on with j's and h's - some said m was canada so it seems so

i think it doesn't matter much - a and c means you have extra parts but i don't think the base is changed at all

EU bound bikes will have headlights aimed left instead of right
