The CBR500R’s performance will give anyone looking for their first sportsbike an exhilarating ride on a twisty, winding road – or even race track. It works equally well in urban environments and is a motorcycle designed to be ridden, and thoroughly enjoyed, by people of all shapes and sizes.
Perfect for learner riders, the CBR500R is LAMS approved. The 500cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin DOHC engine is thoroughly modern in design and produces a broad power spread for enjoyable and economical riding.
Diamond-shaped 35mm steel tube frame is lightweight and rigid for responsive sport handling. Stout 41mm front fork returns a plush yet controlled ride while sophisticated Pro-Link single-shock rear suspension offers nine-stage spring preload adjustability.
Four-valve cylinder head design uses lightweight rocker-arm valve actuation with shim-type valve adjustment.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) continuously monitors several variables to ensure the correct fuel mixture is delivered for the existing riding and atmospheric conditions for crisp throttle response throughout a wide variety of riding conditions.
ABS as standard for enhanced braking characteristics in less than ideal conditions. With LED lighting, a larger fuel tank, adjustable front forks and a satisfying growl from a redesigned exhaust system, the CBR500R means business.
Instrument display features speedometer, tachometer, odometer/A&B tripmeters, fuel gauge, clock, mpg, average fuel consumption, and current fuel consumption.
