Honda Motorcycles has announced the release of the new 2015 model CBR500R.
It’s easy to see how the CBR500R has made a name for itself as the number one selling large capacity LAMS motorcycle in Australia*. With ABS as standard and a Manufacturer’s List Price of $7,999, the CBR ticks all the boxes.
Boldly redefining the middleweight class, the 2015 CBR500R brings a whole new level of excitement for sport riders.
Now available in dealerships nationally, the CBR500R delivers the ultimate all-round package, with a torquey 471cc parallel twin wrapped in a great-handling chassis and a look inspired by Honda’s famed CBR1000RR sportsbike.
With a nod to its sporting heritage, the torquey DOHC engine uses the same piston bore size as Honda’s CBR600RR sportsbike and retains Honda’s famous bulletproof reliability for an exceptional package.
The gutsy twin offers a smooth, wide powerband that a range of riders can enjoy.
The CBR500R offers a riding position that’s sporty, while also suitable for the morning commute and the weekend road trip. Plus, its lower seat height gives the rider extra-confidence when they need to get their feet on the ground at a stop.
The CBR’s diamond-shaped 35mm steel-tube mainframe ties to the engine with four mounts, offering a rock-solid foundation for superior handling.
With a great mix of power and handling, the 2015 model is an excellent choice for riders ready to move up to a larger capacity motorcycle, or for any rider who’s looking for a light, sporty, all-round street machine.
The front 320mm wave-style disc brake and 240mm rear provide strong stopping power, while the Anti-Lock Braking System on the CBR500R helps the rider make smoother, more controlled stops under less-than-ideal conditions.
Available in Red, Black and Silver, the CBR’s Supersport styling is designed for aerodynamic efficiency but also gives the motorcycle a slick attitude on the road.
With the athletic touches of a sportsbike coupled with the versatility to take on any task, the CBR500R is the ultimate on road machine.
