This is the original brochure for the Japanese version of the 1972 CB500 Four K1. Most noticeable is the rare Candy Violet paint scheme only available in Japan. Other colors available where Candy Jade Green, Candy Custom Orange and Jet Black.
In these pictures you can see some of the distinctive features for the second model year: the bigger reflectors on the headlight mounts, a seat with a different seat pattern, a different seat lock and a larger rear light. Also seen here are the high handlebars also used on American versions.
