Honda CBR500R

This is my first bike and I’m loving every second of it. It's great in the city, perfect to commute with and perfect to go for a ride with your friends.

This is my first bike and I’m loving every second of it. It's great in the city, perfect to commute with and perfect to go for a ride with your friends.

Trust me, the second you sit down on it and feel the engine, you'll fall in love with it just like I did. It's a great beginner bike, has a mean look and is worth every penny!

The one thing I changed is the windshield; it's an easy 5 min job and costs you around £15. Why did I change it? From the factory the stock windshield vibrates when hitting around 5,000rpm, causing this awful whining noise. Swapping the windshield out fixes it instantly! Apparently it’s a common issue with this model.
