The Honda CBR500R first introduced by Honda in 2013 is designed for riders who want a sporty motorcycle that is easy to handle and has a more comfortable riding position than some of Honda’s other sport bikes.

Honda CBR500 R

The light weight CBR equipped with a parallel twin engine is a perfect fit for everyone from beginners looking for their first bike to veteran riders seeking a fun ride. 
The CBR500R is powered by a liquid-cooled 471cc parallel-twin engine that produces around 47 horsepower and 31 lb-ft of torque. It has a six-speed transmission and a slipper clutch for smoother downshifting. Acceleration is impressive, due to good low-to-midrange power and torque in the 3,000 to 7,000 rpm range. The exhaust muffler features dual exit pipes, giving a sporting edge to each pulse, as well as a rasping high-rpm howl.

The bike features a sporty design with a full fairing and a low, aggressive stance. It has a comfortable riding position with a slightly forward lean, making it suitable for both city commuting and weekend sport riding.

The CBR500R comes equipped with a range of features including LED headlights and taillights, digital instrument cluster, adjustable brake lever, and a large fuel tank with a capacity of 4.5 gallons.

The CBR500R’s focus is on nimble response, thus the perspective from the cockpit is entirely sporting. The riding position is unmistakably aggressive, and the fairing is also set low. The handlebars attach beneath the top triple clamp. To save 3.7 ounces and provide the most support for vigorous riding, purposeful aluminum footpegs are used in place of the former rubberized components. The CBR650R’s small front fender was used in this design.
