LOOKS TO THRILL
CBR500R Extremely light and manoeuvrable, the CBR500R not only looks like a premium sports bike, but rides and handles like one too. The engine is very comfortable in the low to mid range; perfect for riding through town traffic but, like all its 500cc brothers, it has that eager feel once you’re out on the open road. With an anodised race style finish on top, the new front forks have preload settings so you can adjust the ride to suit your mood and style. Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension also has preload adjustment on the rear shock making small adjustments easy for sport riding, riding in town or with a passenger on board. The fairing design remains cut away at the side to reveal more of the engine. The perfectly positioned air ducts and fairing not only direct air away from the rider, but channels it straight into the engine’s air intake chamber for better performance. The dual LED headlights provide excellent visibility. It also has narrow side lights that accentuate the CBR500Rs aggressive, sporty look. The passenger hand-grips are recessed so as not to interrupt the bike’s defined sporty line and the seat is made from a new material that adds greater comfort. A lightweight, short, upswept muffler adds the final touch and provides a satisfying, sporty exhaust note.
