CBR500R Overview

The Honda CBR500R belongs to one of the well-known bike series in Malaysia which is generally popular for its sharp engine, excellent design, and a good performance. The CBR500R is equipped with a powerful motor at its heart that assures that it will offer amazing response while being hurried on to the highways.

However, it is not only the performance that the CBR500R excels in, but the safety features are also taken care of too. It features some unique set of security additions that reduce the possibility of theft. It competes against the likes of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, which happens to have a lot more displacement and power too. However, the Honda poses with a very affordable price tag.

Honda CBR500R Design

The Honda CBR500R comes with an aggressive design which makes it sporty. It comes with a bright and futuristic LED headlight along with a taillight that makes the overall design a bit more aggressive.

The two-wheeler comes with a large fuel tank of 16.7-litre with a built-in cover that makes the refuelling of the bike super quick and easy. The information console has a fully digital setup of the fuel gauge, odometer, and speedometer. The bike gets the split-designed seats that add to the sporty appeal. It rides on 17-inch wheels where the front is wrapped in 120 mm tubeless tyres while the rear wheel gets thicker 160 mm rubber.

The two-wheeler comes with a seat height of 789 mm, which clears the fact that it will be a good option for the riders of all heights. Getting a firm foot on the ground is very easy. It is built with a kerb weight of 195 kg. It has 140 mm of ground clearance.

CBR500R Ride & Handling

The Honda CBR500R is a nice sports bike to ride, especially on the highways. The engine is very responsive and the power delivery at low RPMs is amazing, especially the torque punch. That said, the mid and high range of the engine rev manages to keep things stable.

Coming to the suspension, the two-wheeler gets a 41 mm telescopic fork up front with preload adjuster, while at the rear, a Prolink suspension, with nine level adjustable monoshock is offered. Both of them make the riding soft and comfortable, but not cushiony, for both pillion and the riders.

Honda CBR500R Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Honda CBR500R features a liquid-cooled, DOHC engine that provides quite a good performance. The 471cc is good enough to churn out a maximum of 49.6 hp power along with a peak torque of 44 Nm. Both the maximum power and the peak torque comes at a rev range of 8,500 rpm and 7,000 rpm respectively. The drive is sent to the wheel via a six-speed manual gearbox.

The parallel-twin DOHC engine is capable of performing well. It is aided by a new transmission system and has the PGM-FI injectors as well.

CBR500R Braking & Safety

Coming to the braking, the Honda CBR500R comes with dual disc brakes to make a good stopping power. The front wheel is stopped by a 320 mm hydraulic disc with twin-piston calliper, while the rear gets a 240 mm hydraulic unit which has the single piston calliper. Both of them gets the support of the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System). It helps of avoiding the locking of the brakes all of a sudden while application at a high speed.

The CBR500R gets the Wave Key feature that is exclusive from the manufacturer. It reduces the chance of theft by offering a forged key. The key has a microchip embedded in it which contains a new feature named Honda Ignition Security System (H.I.S.S). The microchip also contains a password and the bike cannot be unlocked if the password does not match with the key cylinder.

Honda CBR500R Verdict

The Honda CBR500R is one of the top names in sports bike segment in Malaysia. It comes with powerful features and packs in a host of other amazing aspects. The LED headlamp taillight make the design a bit more aggressive.

Speaking of the pricing, the two-wheeler has a starting price tag of around RM 30,000, which brings it to the league of the Kawasaki Ninja 650. However, it gets optional ABS while the Kawasaki model gets it as a standard fitment.

    Yazid Jul 01, 2022 for Honda CBR500R

    Yes, if you were to believe me, this is all I have to say about the Honda CBR500R! The bike is among the best performers in the 500cc segment as it brings out power, prowess, and design, without having to compromise on the type of terrain. In my three years of using this bike, I can admit that the automaker Read More

    Amzad Apr 29, 2022 for Honda CBR500R

    The Honda CBR 500R is one of the most reliable sports bikes to have been launched in the mid-range! The bike is designed keeping in mind the younger dynamics that has been with me for over a year now and now that I have finally driven this beast of a machine for 5000+ km now, I can admit that it Read More

    Ishraaq Jan 12, 2022 for Honda CBR500R

    Rarely do you come across a bike that looks great, offers a comfortable ride, handles well, and is a good value for money product. The Honda CBR500R is in that rare class. Honda has got everything perfect with this bike. It looks like a superbike with the full-faired front. It’s fun to ride with the superb suspension. The seat is Read More

    Julius Dec 29, 2021 for Honda CBR500R

    This is the best A2 license bike, in my opinion. I really love the bodywork, mpg, and almost everything about this bike. It may weigh 186 kg, but the smooth and efficient power delivery makes taking even the sharpest turns very effortless. Despite having A 500cc engine only revs to 8500 rpm and begins to fill at 4000 rpm without Read More

    Hadees Dec 21, 2021 for Honda CBR500R

    The Honda CBR 500R is not your regular sports bike in the middleweight segment and I can vouch for that after buying and riding the bike for over 6 months. The bike is a superb blend of style and performance. The aerodynamic styling is enhanced by attractive graphics and a style that exudes elegance as well as sportiness. Power is Read More

    Khairul Oct 25, 2021 for Honda CBR500R

    The Honda CBR500R is a very popular sports bike that I was also a fan of even before purchasing. After I tried this bike out myself and around 3 months after being a proud owner of this bike, I am writing this review. The bike is really as good as people tell it is. The engine is very responsive and Read More

    Zaffir Jul 14, 2021 for Honda CBR500R

    Honda is surely one of the best when it comes to making powerful 2-cylinder bikes. With the kind of budget I had, I could have bought any other bike around the 500cc segment. But I eventually chose Honda because I have read a lot of ownership reviews about how well it performs. It rides very smoothly and stays firmly planted Read More

    Harrison May 19, 2021 for Honda CBR500R

    I have had an eye on the Honda CBR500R ever since it was launched in the Malaysian market. Its dapper looks and great engine did allure me. However, at that time, I wasn’t legally eligible to ride a bike on my own. Hence, I had to wait. Now that I have my driver’s license, I did purchase this bike a Read More

    Farishah Jan 20, 2021 for Honda CBR500R

    I have used this bike on a total of 10 trips now and I will just say one thing that the performance and safety are beyond expectations. The bike is a true definition of extreme sports and so does its look define it on its exteriors. The moment you start riding the bike you will feel as if you are Read More

    Galwish Nov 25, 2020 for Honda CBR500R

    I previously owned a CBR250RR and I wanted to upgrade. I preferred to stick to Honda because I did not face any issue with my previous bike. Hence, I trusted Honda for a smooth and refined engine. I would surely say that Honda did not disappoint me with the CBR500R. The engine is eager to redline and sounds very well Read More
