The CBR500R has an even sportier and leaner new look – we’ve shortened the rear and sculpted the bodywork to effortlessly draw airflow from front to rear for improved aerodynamic performance.
Slide Up and Down the Gears
Cruise through city traffic in complete comfort with the CBR500R’s improved gear shift system – it ensures much smoother gear changes, with an extra sporty shift pattern right through the rev range.
Adjustable Brake Lever
Use the five-step adjustment settings on the brake lever to get just the right lever position for your hands. Then you’re free to concentrate on the ride.
LED Headlights and Taillight
The CBR500R’s dazzling new LED head and taillights cut a fearless profile at night. But it’s not just about style – they ensure you have a big presence on the road, and improved visibility too.
Adjustable Front Forks
Cruising around town, or off on the motorway? Customise the front suspension depending on where you’re headed with the CB500F’s preload adjuster for maximum comfort.
By making the rear muffler bigger, and punching holes in the path pipe, the CBR500R now has a bark as big as its engine’s bite.
