The CBR500R emerges ready for action with comprehensive upgrades, sporting a distinct, aggressive new look, and armed with revisions that include LED lighting, larger fuel tank, adjustable front forks – plus a satisfying howl from its redesigned mass-centralised exhaust. While its 471cc DOHC engine (producing 35kW and returning 29.4km/litre) and steel diamond-tube frame remain unchanged, the CBR500R is redrawn with aggressive and flowing new lines front to back. The styling integrates fluidly and creates an aerodynamic form; an LED headlight and taillight also add a premium feel.
