2014 HONDA CBR500R
MINT ONE OWNER BIKE
MUST BE SEEN

The CBR500R was designed to maximise the new 47bhp regs while at the same time being both attractive and affordable. Top speed is limited to 112mph but there’s fun to be had in getting up to speed and the CBR’s handling exceeds expectations. All in all, this is an engaging, fun, and satisfying bike.
Handling-wise the CBR500R exceeds expectations. Around town or at commuter speeds its typical, easy, comfortable, smooth Honda: responsive, well mannered, light and manageable, glitch-free. Up to and including brisk travelling it’s all hunky-dory and never going to catch anyone out. Instead, the slight surprise is that, when pushed pretty hard, the CBR holds its chin up as a fairly credible sports bike.
Built to a price but high-quality and fun, the CBR boasts impressive economy. Honda is claiming an average 80.2mpg which translates into a tank range of over 260 miles. This is a cheap bike but it certainly doesn’t feel like it. Under £5k for an all-new middleweight Honda is impressive.
