Honda CBR500R

What Is It?

Power is provided by a liquid cooled 471cc parallel twin engine, which shares some DNA with the CBR600RR engine and was built especially to serve the A2 class. Peak power is achieved at 8,500rpm with maximum torque at 7,000rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame and Steel square pipe swingarm
  • 320mm wavy disc up front with Nissin 2 piston calipers
  • 240mm wavy disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • 41mm Showa fork with pre-load adjustment and 120mm travel
  • Adjustable rear pro-link shock with 9 level pre-load adjustment and 105mm travel
  • 6 speed gearbox and fuel injection

It's closely related to the adventure style CB500X and naked CB500F, although the fairings add about 2kg to overall weight and the bars are lower.

For 2016 Honda introduced a number of upgrades over the 2013-2015 model. The seat is now slightly lower at 785mm, dual channel ABS is standard, the fairing/light has an aggressive new look, the headlights are now LED and the fuel cap hinged.

The fuel tank is also a useful 1.2 litres larger, the front forks are now adjustable for pre-load and the exhaust sees a re-design with better mass centralisation. Elsewhere the seat and rear end see a bit of a makeover (check out the pics above) and the engine is now painted bronze.

2017: Euro 4 compliant

Accessories include a carbon look mudguard, high screen, heated grips, top box, panniers, seat cowl and rear hugger. The 17" cast Aluminium wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 160/60 at the rear.

Colours: Red/black/white, white/blue/black and black/orange/grey
