Revamped Design

The CBR500R has an even sportier and leaner new look – we’ve shortened the rear and sculpted the bodywork to effortlessly draw airflow from front to rear for improved aerodynamic performance.

Slide Up and Down the Gears

Cruise through city traffic in complete comfort with the CBR500R’s improved gear shift system – it ensures much smoother gear changes, with an extra sporty shift pattern right through the rev range.

Adjustable Brake Lever

Use the five-step adjustment settings on the brake lever to get just the right lever position for your hands. Then you’re free to concentrate on the ride.

LED Headlights and Taillight

The CBR500R’s dazzling new LED head and taillights cut a fearless profile at night. But it’s not just about style – they ensure you have a big presence on the road, and improved visibility too.

Adjustable Front Forks

Cruising around town, or off on the motorway? Customise the front suspension depending on where you’re headed with the CB500F’s preload adjuster for maximum comfort.

Roaring Exhaust

By making the rear muffler bigger, and punching holes in the path pipe, the CBR500R now has a bark as big as its engine’s bite.

Own the road

A2 licence holders will feel a tingle of excitement stepping up to the CBR500R. It holds its own on the road amongst other larger category bikes, so the CBR500R is also an attractive and affordable alternative for more established riders who still want that ‘big bike’ experience. The ride benefits from sporty character and cutting edge features that deliver an instant connection between rider and road.

Go the distance

The CBR500R’s sleek and sporty bodywork doesn’t just catch admiring glances, its nimble form also helps you weave through city traffic with ease. The aggressive design extends to the new side cover and larger capacity fuel tank – so you can cruise even farther than before.
