For riders looking to move up from a 125, or holding an A2 licence, the fully faired twin-cylinder CBR500R provides an excellent first big sports bike experience, which will also appeal to experienced riders looking for a great value alternative to larger sports bikes. The CBR500R is part of a new family of motorcycles from Honda that includes the naked CB500F and adventure sports CB500X.
Sharing a common frame and engine, the three machines each have a distinct feel and character and feature a riding position and design that is tailored, and will appeal to a wide variety of riders, with adaptable abilities that cover a range of uses from commuting and sports, to touring.

While the CBR500R, CB500F and CB500X are focused in different directions they are all physically easy to manage, and deliver all-round practicality matched to excellent efficiency. As true middleweights, blessed with lightweight agility and an engaging power delivery, above all, they are also enjoyable to ride in every scenario.

Honda has a motorcycling history that goes back over 60 years, and in 1957 released the 247cc Dream C70, powered by its first parallel twin cylinder engine. Through the 1960s the DOHC CB450 twin regularly outperformed larger capacity rivals and the new CBR500R proudly carries the CB suffix (with an extra dash of race-inspired R) and proves the point that – sometimes – less most certainly can be more.

Fast, frugal, affordable and fun, the CBR500R offers a great entry point to the world of sports motorcycles, with high a build quality plus pride of ownership that will last.
