Enough Engine For Everything
Choosing a 500 isn’t a compromise, especially when it’s an engine with as much development behind it as Honda’s parallel twins. Liquid-
LED the Way
New for 2016, the LED dual headlights are small but bright, with a stylish new shape. It completely changes the CBR500R’s presence and gives the front end a unique look while also projecting plenty of light on the road for visibility.
The CBR500R offers a riding position that’s a touch more sporty but not too aggressive, whether you’re commuting or carving the canyons.

ENGINE & DRIVETRAIN
Optimum power characteristics
The DOHC liquid-
Smooth and compact
Engine vibration is kept to a minimum by using crank pins phased at 180 degrees and a balancer shaft behind the cylinders, which also contributes to the engine’s compact size.
Crisp throttle response
Small & lightweight water pump
Careful flow analysis of the cooling system resulted in a water pump that’s small and lightweight, yet still more than capable of keeping the engine running its best at high output levels.
Maximized flow efficiency
In order to maximize air-
Reduced weight & friction
The four valves in each of the DOHC cylinder heads have narrow stems, thereby reducing weight and friction and increasing efficiency.
A light and compact roller-
The pins in the silent cam chain have been treated with vanadium, which both reduces friction and improves durability. Lightweight pistons use the same advanced manufacturing process as those found in the CBR600RR.
The oil pump’s internal relief structure uses the same design as found in the CBR1000RR, which reduces friction, improves aeration performance and simplifies the shape of the oil pan.
Improvements to the shifting mechanism in the six-
The sound of power
A shorter muffler with redesigned internal structure produces an authoritative exhaust note and improves the bike’s mass centralization.
