Performance where it counts

It has quickly become one of our most popular streetbikes, and it’s no wonder why. With a perfect combination of performance, versatility and price, the Honda CBR500R just might be your next bike.

The CBR500R’s engine is powerful, smooth, and offers a wide powerband with plenty of revs. And with four-valve combustion chambers, twin overhead cams and fuel injection, it can confidently keep up with many bigger sportbikes.

A 500 twin is a great choice for a whole lot of sport riders. Generations of enthusiasts have known it, and the CBR500R is the newest incarnation.
