2017 Honda CBR500R

TThe 2017 Honda CBR500R is a member of the CBR family, but it only has one R after the 500. That means it has a more relaxed seating position than its RR brothers.

That’s a good thing, as the friendly performance of the 471cc parallel twin doesn’t invite extreme riding. That’s not to say the CBR500R is not a enjoyable canyon bike—in the right hands it can be quite effective against larger machines on the tightest roads.

Regardless, the Honda CBR500R is more about being a motorcycle that welcomes newer riders to the sport fold, and gives them the high-performance look of a fully faired track-ready bike. Stick to the canyons and urban roads, though, as that’s what the CBR500R is all about.
