Especially with the large 16.7 litre fuel tank, perfect for extended travel range when needed.

Then the big 41mm adjustable pre-load front forks have external preload adjusters to allow for adaptation to different riding situations (i.e., riding with a passenger, cargo etc.) and results in a plush yet controlled ride.

Sophisticated Pro-Link® single-shock rear suspension offers nine-stage spring preload adjustability and further enhance rider comfort.

The CBR500R has dual LED headlights and taillight for a sharp look and great visibility as well as ABS as standard. The front brake lever features a five-step adjustment mechanism to suit rider preference.

The lower seat height also gives riders extra-confidence when they need to get their feet on the ground quickly or when at a stop.

With all of that in mind, the CBR500R has an enviable street presence; after all, its part of the famed Honda CBR family which spans across generations, built from racing DNA and masterful engineering.
