Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
2016 Honda® CBR500RThe Best Of Both Worlds.
The CBR® 500R is the sporty member of that family, with bodywork inspired by our CBR® 600RR and CBR® 1000RR Supersports. Plus, for 2016, it’s full of improvements, keeping it even further out front. A new muffler both improves mass centralization and sounds even cooler. You get improved gear-shift feel, along with a new adjustable brake lever, and a hinged fuel cap for added convenience. And then there’s that spectacular twin-cylinder engine: displacing 471cc, it delivers smooth power from idle to redline. Twins offer notoriously broad powerbands, and the CBR® 500R is no exception.
Chassis? Tuned especially for sport riding, the steel-tube frame and Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension let you carve corners with confidence, now featuring adjustable fork preload and new shock settings. And the available anti-lock brakes feature a new adjustable brake lever this year.
A perfect choice for new riders, returning riders, or anyone who appreciates a great do-it-all streetbike, the CBR® 500R is also an affordable choice. Best of all, it’s a bike you won’t outgrow for a long, long time—if ever.Features May Include:
- DOHC Twin-Cylinder Engine
Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the CBR® 500R engine is one of our best ever. Using the same piston bore size as our CBR® 600RR sportbike, the parallel-twin engine offers accessible performance across all RPM ranges.
