The Honda CBR500R is one of our most popular streetbikes, and it’s easy to see why. It’s just about the perfect combination of performance, versatility and price. And for 2019 this feisty road warrior is even better, with a whole menu full of improvements.
For starters, we gave it more power, more aggressive styling, a nicer sound, and a whole bunch of other functional upgrades. What didn’t change? The near magical balance of size, performance, and handling. Oh, and an affordable price, too. So go ahead, live a little. Don’t be afraid—the CBR500R’s not too hot, but we guarantee it’ll get your interest the minute you twist the throttle.
