The Honda CBR500R is one of our most popular streetbikes, and it’s easy to see why. It’s just about the perfect combination of performance, versatility and price. And for 2019 this feisty road warrior is even better, with a whole menu full of improvements.
For starters, we gave it more power, more aggressive styling, a nicer sound, and a whole bunch of other functional upgrades.
The CBR500R boasts a ton of upgrades this year, like more midrange power, better acceleration, new fuel injectors, a new supersport styled dual-outlet muffler, refined transmission internals, a new rear shock, a slipper/assist clutch and more.
