Aggressive Super Sports Styling & New Graphics

Have no doubt. The CBR500R is sharp. Drawn heavily from our racing DNA, the aggressive fairing incorporates aerodynamic winglets and wears new, race-inspired colours and graphics.

New Showa 41mm SSF-BP USD Forks

We’ve given the CBR500R a major upgrade. New Showa 41mm Separate Function Fork-Big Piston (SSF-BP) USD forks provide excellent control and feel for sports riding, especially on turn-in and braking from high speeds.

New Dual Front Disc Brakes With Radial Mount Calipers

Dual 296mm discs and two-piston Nissin radial mount calipers deliver strong, progressive braking power with no more inertia than a single disc – so you can maneuver faster.

New Lightweight Wheels & Swingarm

New wheels now use a 5-spoke pattern and save un-sprung weight – which makes for razor-fast side-to-side steering – while the swingarm is also a new, lighter weight high performance design.

Sporty LCD Instrument Display

For spirited riding the negative LCD dash presents the information you need instantly and includes Gear Position and customizable Shift Up indicators.

Thrilling Twin-Cylinder Engine

This engine is born to perform. With optimized ECU settings it oers responsive mid-range torque for impressive acceleration out of corner, and a rush to the redline guaranteed to excite.
