More power, more torque

The 471 cc DOHC liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine uses a square bore & stroke of 67 mm x 66.8 mm for an optimum combination of strong low-end torque and power, adding up to excellent top-end power and performance.

Slipper clutch

Not only does the slipper clutch help to prevent rear-wheel lockup on downshifts, it also reduces effort at the lever by almost half, helping to reduce rider fatigue particularly in city traffic or on long rides.

Exhaust system

The exhaust system features dual exit pipe resulting in improved exhaust flow, extra power and a sportier-sounding edge to the exhaust note.

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

PGM-FI electronic fuel injection has been updated to improve engine character with increased power and low end torque, while ensuring crisp throttle response and optimal engine efficiency.

Small & light 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 efficiency

In order to maximize air-intake and exhaust efficiency, the profile from the air cleaner through the intake ports to the exhaust pipe was made as straight as possible, helped in part by repositioning the battery away from the rear of the airbox intake duct.

Reduced weight & friction

The four valves in each of the DOHC cylinder heads have narrow stems, thereby reducing weight and friction and increasing efficiency.

High-tech design

A light and compact roller- rocker-arm assembly and shim-type valve adjustment allows a lower valve-spring load for reduced friction and a compact cylinder head.


The pins in the silent cam chain have been treated with vanadium, which both reduces friction and improves durability. The lightweight pistons use the same advanced manufacturing process as those found in the CBR1000RR. To ensure precise cylinder shape, the engine uses the same centrifugal-cast thin-wall sleeves as found in the CBR1000RR.

Reduced friction

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.

Easy shifting

The gear indicator and adjustable shift-up indicator make it even easier to use the smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox.


chassis & suspension

Excellent response & feedback

The lightweight diamond-shaped steel frame was designed to allow a certain degree of yield, which enables it to better respond to changes in the road surface and to transmit just the right amount of feedback to the rider.

Comfortable & sporty ride

The front fork now features new Showa 41mm Seperate Function Fork Big Piston (SFF-BP) USD forks -- the same found on the CBR650R. The rear suspension is now ~1kg lighter (compared to the previous generation), and provides more lateral flex and new settings to compliment the upgraded front. Additonally, the Pro-Link® rear suspension boasts a single-tube shock absorber (as found on larger capacity sportbikes) with five-stage spring preload adjustment, replacing the double-tube design of the previous model. Its large-diameter piston helps to ensure excellent suspension response and improved heat dissipation. The shock connects to a rigid box-section steel swingarm with pressed-steel chain-adjustment end pieces. Both the shock and the adjustable 41 mm fork are calibrated for a comfortable but sporty ride.

Easy to manage

The 785 mm (30.9 in) seat height makes the CBR500R very easy to manage, and its riding position comfortably accommodates riders of any height.

Lightweight wheels

Lightweight cast aluminum wheels with Y-shaped spokes not only look great, they also contribute to the bike’s excellent manoeuvrability.

Powerful braking

The powerful dual-piston brakes with radial-mounted calipers up front and a single-piston caliper at the back are designed to provide strong but easily controlled stopping power – even in difficult conditions. Equipped with sophisticated Honda ABS. Wave brake rotors with superlative heat-dissipating qualities are lighter than conventional discs of the same diameter, which helps to further reduce the bike’s unsprung weight.


additional features

Sporty riding position

Clip-on handlebars are positioned lower and farther forward, producing a more aggressive seating position that’s ideal for sport riding. Ergonomics were carefully configured to help ensure easy manoeuvring in town, easy reach to the ground, as well as excellent comfort during long-distance highway trips.

Increased range

It not only looks more aggressive, but the fuel tank also boasts capacity of 17.1 litres for longer rides and fewer stops.

LED lighting

The CBR500R’s sporty fairing and rear section incorporate a pair of bright and distinctive LED headlights plus an LED taillight and turn signals.

Enhanced comfort

Strategically placed vents and ducts in the front cowl and side panels improve rider comfort and protection while also aiding high-speed handling.

Convenient storage

A utility space under the seat accommodates a U-lock, wet-weather gear or other items.

More premium features

The CBR500R’s long list of premium features now includes brighter LEDs and new PGM-FI settings to imrove engine character with an increased power to low-end torque.
