FAST, LIGHT AND NIMBLE. THE CBR500R FOR SUPER SPORT LOVERS
FULL HONDA SERVICE HISTORY
The CBR500R was designed to maximise the new 47bhp regs while at the same time being both attractive and affordable. Top speed is limited to 112mph but there’s fun to be had in getting up to speed and the CBR's handling exceeds expectations. All in all, this is an engaging, fun, and satisfying bike.
Handling-wise the CBR500R exceeds expectations. Around town or at commuter speeds its typical, easy, comfortable, smooth Honda: responsive, well mannered, light and manageable, glitch-free. Up to and including brisk travelling it’s all hunky-dory and never going to catch anyone out. Instead, the slight surprise is that, when pushed pretty hard, the CBR holds its chin up as a fairly credible sports bike.
