2016 Honda CBR500R

Already the biggest selling sports bike in Australia, the upgraded and re-designed 2016 version of the Honda CBR 500R is built for even wider appeal.

LAMS approved and very popular for new and learner drivers, the Honda CBR 500R performs equally well on winding country roads, race tracks and city streets and with the new upgrades, it looks even better than its predecessor.

Comprehensive Upgrades

The CBR500R has received a significant re-design with host upgrades. As a snapshot of the upgrades - revised plastics, LED lights both rear and front, a larger fuel tank with a hinged cap, wave-style ignition key, the seat has been re-designed and it also features an adjustable front brake lever. The muffler is shorter, it has new engine touches and passenger footpegs in aluminium die-cast. The angular shape gives a very contemporary style but it’s not all looks-only. The forks have a preload adjustment and the transmission has been tweaked.

Performance of 2016 Honda CBR500R

The design of the 500cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin DOHC engine is totally modern, extremely solid and delivers economical riding with superior rider comfort.

Riders will enjoy the crisp throttle response across a range of conditions, thanks to the Programmed Fuel Injection and the revel in the responsive sports handling due to the diamond-shaped, lightweight yet rigid, steel rube frame.

Sports-inspired, the new CBR500R has a comfortable yet dynamic seating position, more comfortable than its predecessors, ABS on front and rear are standard for safety and the overall ride gives a confident feeling of stability. Likely one of the major reasons it is so popular with learner riders.
