2013 Honda CBR 500 R Photos/Pics/Images/Wallpaper

Honda amped up its entry-level offerings for 2013, releasing a host of 500 (471cc) motorcycles – the CB500F (standard style); the CB500X (adventure style) and the CBR500R sportbike.

The latter was one of the most talked-about machines when Honda unveiled the info in November. The reason? The bike is the perfect middle platform between the wildly popular CBR250R and the aggressive CBR600RR.

The CBR500R has attitude, but doesn’t quite scare. It arrives with a 471cc parallel-twin DOHC that produces 47 horsepower, Pro-Link single-shock rear suspension, 41mm fork, 320mm front/240mm rear disc brakes, 17-inch wheels and a full fairing with styling attributes directly from Honda’s CBR600RR and CBR1000RR.

Below are the specs of the 2013 Honda CBR500RR, which carries an MSRP of $5,999 ($6,499 with ABS).
