Honda CBR500R review

We went to test the HondaCBR500R with reviews in mind.

The smooth and almost impeccable 471cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine of Honda CBR500R contains adequate torque for exploring the town plus massive power curve for hitting the canyon roads. Its rev limiter tickled at 10,000 rpm which is more than enough to deliver exhilarating performance on the road. The braking department performs well with initial bite, predictable power and great feel. Handling is neutral, riding position is sporty yet comfy and chassis deliver stable ride for the entire rev range.

This could be an answered prayer for most – the CBR500R received preload adjustment for the forks. The bike remains excellent in carrying a passenger with this new upgrade. Softer than expected, it is surprising to see how well the plush suspension eats road bumps and runs on rough pavements with ease. Apart from advanced suspension, Honda is also known for developing sportsbike with quickshifting ability and the CBR500R is no exception. Its six-speed transmission is exemplary in booth ratio selection and gear shifting.

Ergonomics shows the sporty side of Honda CBR500R with clip-ons handlebar and low positioned footpegs resulting to spacious legroom for comfortable movements. The new two-piece seat is soft and incredibly comfortable whether on daily rides or weekend canyon carving. It has enough room for the passenger too for a two-up ride. Moreover, the LED headlights, traditional muffler, minimal graphics, sporty fairings are responsible for its overall aggressive style.
