2019 Honda CBR500R


Honda’s popular CBR500R has been updated for 2019 with more mid-range grunt and improved ergonomics. The latest generation of the machines have just hit Honda dealers across Australia at $7,999.

The rider’s seat pad and seat unit – plus the upper and side fairings – have been narrowed to improve ergonomics. Seat height remains low at 785mm, making the CBR500R very easy to manage, while its riding position comfortably accommodates riders of any height.

The development target for the CBR500Rs engine for 2019 was focused on faster acceleration through a boost in low-to-mid-range power and torque in the 3-7,000rpm range. This 4% improvement comes via altered valve timing – with ‘close’ timing accelerated by 5° – and lift increased 0.3mm to 7.8mm.

Feeding the PGM-FI fuel injection is now a more-or-less straight shot of airflow through the airbox and throttle bodies. A six-speed gearbox mirrors that of its CBR1000RR cousin and uses the same gear change arm structure and link mechanism. The new addition of an assist/slipper clutch enables lighter upshifts and smooths out any hard downshifts.

New LCD instruments feature a Shift Up and Gear Position function and the indicators are now LED, to match the rest of the lighting. The new 2019 CBR500R will be available in three colour options: Matte Axis Grey Metallic, Grand Prix Red and Pearl Metalloid White.
