CHOOSE TODAY THE BIKER
YOU WANT TO BE TOMORROW

Choose the biker you want to be. With its aggressive new looks and low-end power boost, the CBR500R frees you from all constraints. And it’s A2 licence ready.

THE SOUND OF FREEDOM

Rev the free-spinning two-cylinder engine. Listen to the unique and appealingly aggressive roar of the bike. Take a deep breath. The road is yours. (best heard with headphones)

Details matter

Take a closer look at the unique features that make CBR500R the stuff of legend.

PURE SPORTS AGGRESSION

Drawn from the Fireblade.

The CBR500R is redrawn with direct sports influence from the CBR1000RR Fireblade. Its sharper, more aggressive lines also incorporate unique aerodynamic winglets. And the view forward from the cockpit is pure sports, with clip-on handlebars mounted below the top bridge and inverse LCD dash. The fuel tank has an innovative design that simultaneously increases capacity (for improved cruising distance) and cuts down on bulk.

MOVING UP

Twin-cylinder power.

The CBR500R features a powerful twin-cylinder engine to give you unmatched power. You won’t ever have to choose between a bike with lightning-fast acceleration from a standing start and one that can take you on a thrilling chase through the slick six-speed gearbox at high rpm. The CBR500R gives you both. This is what freedom is all about.

Just like its larger CBR siblings, an Assist/Slipper Clutch eases upshifts and prevents rear wheel lock-up on hard downshifts. And to give you an even sportier ride, torque has been increased by 3 to 4 percent in low- to mid-speed ranges of between 3,000 and 7,000 rpm.

FULLY EQUIPPED

And ready to ride.

The CBR500R features a new inverse-display LCD dash with Gear Position indicator. When tackling aggressive riding conditions, the handlebars mount below the top bridge, allowing you to maintain an optimal level of control. The 41mm telescopic fork is adjustable for spring preload, as is the Pro-Link rear monoshock. Full LED lighting, including indicators, is a premium finishing touch. Ready. Set. GO.
