Honda CBR500RA 17YM


17YM – £5,799

The CBR500R packs our reliable inline-twin 500cc engine – but combines aggressive body styling and enhanced tuning to deliver an extra rush of racing performance. And what’s more, it’s available with just an A2 licence.

Racing in the bloodline

The CBR500R inherits sharp styling and performance tuning from the Fireblade.

As a result, the CBR500R’s cutting profile boasts aggressive road presence and improved aerodynamic styling. But it’s not just looks – the 500cc water-cooled parallel twin engine has been tweaked to release a steady burst of power, the transmission has sportier gear ratios, and the suspension has been tuned for a tighter, more agile feel on the road.

Own the road

A2 licence holders will feel a tingle of excitement stepping up to the CBR500R.

It holds its own on the road amongst other larger category bikes, so the CBR500R is also an attractive and affordable alternative for more established riders who still want that ‘big bike’ experience. The ride benefits from sporty character and cutting edge features that deliver an instant connection between rider and road.

Go the distance

The CBR500R’s sleek and sporty bodywork doesn’t just catch admiring glances, its nimble form also helps you weave through city traffic with ease. The aggressive design extends to the new side cover and larger capacity fuel tank – so you can cruise even farther than before.

Earn your stripes

Choose between the CBR500R’s choice of six powerful new paint jobs.

Millennium Red, Ross White, Mat Gunpowder Black Metallic, Lemon Ice Yellow, Pearl Metalloid White, Graphite Black – each of the CBR500R’s paintwork options come with colour-matching wheel arches, wheel stickers, and are available with optional striped decals that complete the street racing look. All paired with the rugged new bronze engine case – the CBR500R has never looked so good.
