It seems that Honda doesn't like America. Are the other manufacturers the same?

In the USA the CB500x comes with just the few bits you mentioned. I made-up my own tool kit. :(

Wow! Talk about being "cheap". Honda just lost a lot of "points" in my book, what did it save them, maybe $5 at cost prices.

I guess they had some utility but generally the included tools were junk, not up to Harbor Freight standards!

This is the full toolkit that comes with the 2019 in Asia. You aren't missing much! I bring better tools. The only "tool" I actually use is the helmet lock, now and then.

Thats same as the UK, I added this beaut with a few extras. Fit under the seat nicely without any hacking. Although my puncture repair kit has to go in my pannier as my fuze block takes up the rest of the underseat storage

That's a useful looking bit of kit, woody. Are the screwdriver bits JIS or regular Phillips type?

For the OP, have you tried ebay for a Honda tool kit? UK ebay often has a few from breakers, but the shipping might be prohibitive...I assume the tool kit is common to the 500 range, X, R and F?
