The CBR500R is the sporty member of the 500 line, with bodywork inspired by our CBR600RR and CBR1000RR Supersports. Plus, for 2016, it’s full of improvements, keeping it even further out front. A new muffler both improves mass centralization and sounds even cooler. You get improved gear-shift feel, along with a new adjustable brake lever, and a hinged fuel cap for added convenience. And then there’s that spectacular twin-cylinder engine: displacing 471cc, it delivers smooth power from idle to redline. Twins offer notoriously broad powerbands, and the CBR500R is no exception.
Chassis? Tuned especially for sport riding, the steel-tube frame and Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension let you carve corners with confidence, now featuring adjustable fork preload and new shock settings. And the available anti-lock brakes feature a new adjustable brake lever this year.
A perfect choice for new riders, returning riders, or anyone who appreciates a great do-it-all streetbike, the CBR500R is also an affordable choice. Best of all, it’s a bike you won’t outgrow for a long, long time—if ever.
