The Next Step Up.
With the introduction of the all-new CBR500R, Honda boldly redefines the middleweight class and infuses a whole new level of excitement for sport riders in search of superior value, along with great fun.
The CBR500R delivers plenty of performance to sport riders, with its thoroughly modern, torquey 500cc P-twin DOHC engine wrapped in a great-handling chassis and featuring a full fairing spawned from Honda’s much-acclaimed CBR600RR and CBR1000RR sportbikes.
The CBR500R features a full bodywork cowl and a 31-inch seat height. It’s an excellent choice for riders ready to move up a displacement class, or for any rider who’s looking for a light, sporting, do-it-all street machine.
Parallel Twin-Cylinder Engine: An all-new design, the CB500R is built with a high-performance, liquid-cooled 500cc DOHC parallel-twin engine that offers plenty of accessible power. Honda twins have always been some of the best motorcycle engines anywhere—reliable, efficient, and fun to ride.
Sporting Heritage: The CBR500R offers a riding position that’s a touch more sporting, but not too aggressive, whether you’re commuting or carving the canyons.
Honda Genuine Accessories: The CBR500R has a full line of available Honda Genuine Accessories including a sport screen, color-matched passenger seat cowl, and carbon-look accents.
Practicality was never so much fun: Its combination of lightweight and rider-friendly engine makes the CBR500R a great choice for commuting, weekend rides, or just getting out and having fun. Plus, its lower seat height makes it easier to get your feet on the ground when you stop.
