Sporting a whole new sharper, more aggressive look, the Honda CBR500R delivers high performance and excitement whilst out on the open winding roads. Simultaneously it achieves comfort and style to tackle the daily grind out in the real world. The upgraded Honda CBR500R is a popular choice for those who opt for a more manageable, compact motorcycle whilst still holding the appeal of a true superbike. New LED lighting, a bigger fuel tank, adjustable front forks as well as a redesigned mass-centralised exhaust, the new Honda CBR500R won't disappoint and will be a quality and affordable choice for A2 licence holders.
Fast, frugal, affordable and fun, Honda’s CBR500R – on sale since 2013 – has helped redefine and re-energise the middleweight class and brings sporting energy, plus engineering DNA of larger CBRs, to Honda’s twin-cylinder line-up. Dozens of young riders from around the world developed their racecraft on CBR500Rs in the first two seasons of Honda’s one-make European Junior Cup race series.
Suitable for riders looking to move up from a 125 (or holding an A2 licence) it injects the excitement of sports bike ownership into every ride, yet also delivers real-world comfort with sensible running costs, making it a great bike to commute through the working week – and cut loose at the weekend on.
And with its giant-killing capacity, the CBR500R has also found favour with experienced riders looking to downsize their machinery, while preserving the essence of enjoyable motorcycling.
The 16YM CBR500R is a considered and thorough evolution that elevates the machine further to offer the maximum sporty performance, style and presence from a genuine A2 licence-compliant motorcycle.
