2016 Honda CBR500R

The 2016 Honda CBR500R sportbike model has been updated with a new muffler, a new adjustable brake lever and a new hinged fuel cap. The 471cc parallel twin cylinder engine has not changed and has the same crisp throttle response thanks to the Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI). Honda makes the CBR500R around the steel tube frame for a stable and reliable ride. The 2016 Honda CBR500R stops thanks to the wave style disc brakes on the front and the rear and riders can add the optional Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) if desired. Honda has given the CBR500R a low seat height with a step seat and passenger seat strap for passengers to hold on to or to use as tie downs if needed.
