If there’s any question about Honda’s new market umbilicus, it should be rhinestone clear now that Honda has unveiled multiple new 2013 products. Combining the efficient and inexpensiveCBR250R and paradigm-bending NC700X are a trio of budget-friendly, 500cc parallel-Twins: the CBR500R, CB500X and CB500F. These three proves that Honda is committed to bringing in new riders and welcoming back those who have fallen off the motorcycling wagon. The jewel among the three is the CBR500R, a fully fair sport bike with a strong analogy to the rest of the CBR family. You have to flash back to the V-Four-powered VF500 Interceptor to find the last multi-cylinder Honda sport bike with a half-liter engine capacity. Although Honda produced a European 500cc parallel-Twin called the CBF500 until 2003, this new model has little in common with that open standard.

Excellent handling was at the top of the engineer’s wish list, so a lightweight and drastic steel-tube frame is used for sporty response. Pro-Link rear suspension with a preload-adjustable shock and a conventional 41mm thorn are hung at each end. The braking system consists of 320mm wave-style disc with a twin-piston caliper up front and a 240mm disc and single-piston caliper out back. Optional ABS braking is available but Honda hasn’t released the price—if the CBR250R is any indication, we expect anti-lock will be a $500 premium. The 500R going on 17-inch cast-aluminum wheels in 120/70 and 160/60 sizes front and rear, respectively. Seat height is set at a smart 30.9 in.

Despite the family analogy to the aeons old CB500 motor, the CBR500R’s 471cc engine is no hand-me-down old-tech chatterer. It is a thoroughly modern all-new lightweight 500cc parallel twin with a 180-degree crank and balance tool shaft to keep things smooth. Compact roller rockers keep the heads slim and shims only require inspecting at the first service then every 24,000km, helping to keep servicing costs manageable. Two throttle bodies cast into smartly designed single housing incorporating a throttle position sensor, MAP sensor and IAT sensor all in the one unit further help simplify servicing. The engine is clearly under-stressed and has been designed with the 35kW (47hp) limit imposed on learners in many European countries rather than the more sensible power to weight ratios enforced under our own LAMS scheme. Australian delivered machines gain a modest boost to 37kw (50hp) to further extend the advantage the Honda enjoys over comparable machines.

Honda is about to give a very heavy competition to their rivals in India Bike market with its new launch of Honda CBR 500R. I hope you have liked our post about the  Honda CBR500RBike Launch Details In India. You can now share our post on and like it on Facebook or follow us on tweeter.
