About CBR500R

Honda has launched the 2013 Honda CBR500R during the recently held EICMA event at Milan, Italy. The CBR500R is part of the new Honda 500cc trio which includes the CB500X and CB500F. This motorcycle is the fully-faired version of the CB500F.

The CBR500R is powered by the same 500cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled DOHC engine that also powers the 2013 Honda CB500F and 2013 Honda CB500X.The motorcycle also features Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI). The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and produces 47bhp and 43Nm. The front suspension has a 41mm fork with 4.8 inches of travel whereas the rear suspension is a Pro-Link single shock with nine-position spring preload adjustability.

The CBR500R is for someone who is looking for an entry level middle weight motorcycle. The bike looks very sporty and offers a riding position that is not too aggressive. The CBR500R is priced at £4,950 (Rs 4.40 lakhs INR) in the UK market and we can expect it in the same price range if Honda plans to get the bike in India through completely-knocked-down (CKD) route. We are expecting the bike to make its first official presence in India at the 2014 Auto Expo.
