OVERVIEW


CBR500R

The 2016 CBR500R emerges ready for action with comprehensive upgrades, sporting a distinct, aggressive new look, and armed with revisions that include LED lighting, larger fuel tank, adjustable front forks – plus a satisfying howl from its redesigned mass-centralised exhaust. While its 471cc DOHC engine (producing 35kW and returning 29.4km/litre) and steel diamond-tube frame remain unchanged, the CBR500R is redrawn with aggressive and flowing new lines front to back. The styling integrates fluidly and creates an aerodynamic form; an LED headlight and taillight also add a premium feel.

A larger fuel tank extends range, and detail improvements – hinged fuel cap, adjustable-reach brake lever, redesigned seat and ‘wave’ style ignition key – elevate the overall owning experience. The ride is improved with the addition of adjustable spring preload in the front forks, redesigned shift drum for smoother gear changes and new short exhaust muffler, with tuned internals, that emits a crisp howl worthy of the engine’s character and the machine’s CBR prefix. Comes standard with ABS.
