Honda CBR500R is powered by a 500cc twin cylinder engine generating 47bhp of peak power and 43Nm of peak torque. With a top speed of 180+km/hr and ABS as a safety feature this is the Honda you can boast about. The pricing is expected to be in the range of Rs4-5 lakhs.
Visually, the new CBR500 is a mini-me version of the CBR1000RR. The new motorcycle has been designed to be an affordable and fun to ride and will be produced at Honda’s Thailand factory. However, we won’t be too surprised to see the production of the new bike commencing in India too, once the bike has been launched in the country.
