JUST PERFECT.2019 Honda CBR500R ABS:The Honda CBR500R is one of our most popular streetbikes, and it’s easy to see why. It’s just about the perfect combination of performance, versatility and price. And for 2019 this feisty road warrior is even better, with a whole menu full of improvements.For starters, we gave it more power, more aggressive styling, a nicer sound, and a whole bunch of other functional upgrades. 2003 r6 fairings What didn’t change? The near magical balance of size, performance, and handling. Oh, and an affordable price, too. So go ahead, live a little. Don’t be afraid the CBR500R’s not too hot, but we guarantee it’ll get your interest the minute you twist the throttle.Since its 2013 launch, Honda’s fully faired CBR500R has been proven itself a standout option for riders looking to move up from a smaller machine, instilling the excitement of sportbike ownership into every ride while also delivering sensible running costs, making it a great bike for both commuting and enjoying the weekend. It has also found favor with experienced riders looking to downsize while still preserving the essence of motorcycling. For 2019, the CBR500R has aggressive new styling that heralds a long list of performance improvements that strengthen the sportbike’s appeal.Honda’s fully faired CBR500R launched in 2013 alongside the naked CB500F and adventure styled CB500X gives a genuine sporting energy to its fun focussed twin cylinder ‘light middleweight’ trio.Suitable for riders looking to move up from a smaller machine, it instils the excitement of sports bike ownership into every ride yet also delivers sensible running costs, making it a great bike to both commute through the working week and enjoy at the weekend. It’s also found favour with experienced riders looking to downsize their machinery, while preserving the essence of enjoyable motorcycling.In 2016 the CBR500R assumed sharper styling and LED lighting to go with upgrades to its front suspension for 2019 it gets an even more aggressive makeover, with a new form and riding position that outlines a keener sporting intent. Its engine is stronger off the bottom and spins readily to the redline, delivering a thrilling howl in the process.The CBR500R has always proved fast, frugal, affordable and fun. It’s an ergonomic design for the rider to use aggressively which also features improved aero management. 2007 gsxr 750 fairings Clipon handlebars now mount below the revised top yoke and the riding position is canted further forward.While its engine maintains the 35kW required for A2 licence holders, it now makes 4% more power and torque between 37,000rpm thanks to revisions to the inlet, exhaust and valve timing. It also now features an assist/slipper clutch.More power and torque between 37,000rpm thanks to revisions to the inlet, exhaust and valve timing. It also now features an assist/slipper clutch.New LCD instruments feature a Shift Up and Gear Position function and the indicators are now LED, to match the rest of the lighting. While the chassis remains essentially unchanged a new rear shock absorber delivers consistent damping performance and improved control.The CBR500R’s friendly, 8 valve liquid cooled parallel twin cylinder layout offers a well proportioned balance of physical size and willing, enjoyable power output, with an energetic, high revving character and zappy top end.Already strong off the bottom, the target for 2019 development was faster acceleration through a boost in low to midrange power and torque in the 37,000rpm range the 4% improvement comes via altered valve timing with ‘close’ timing accelerated by 5 and lift increased 0.3mm to 7.8mm.Feeding the PGMFI fuel injection is now a moreorless straight shot of airflow through the airbox and throttle bodies. The battery has been repositioned further away (44.1mm versus 13.4mm) from the rear of the airbox intake duct to allow greater airflow the exhaust muffler now features dual exit pipes, adding a sportier sounding edge to each pulse. Peak power of 35kW arrives at 8,500rpm, with 43Nm torque delivered at 7,000rpm. 2003 honda cbr600rr fairing kit Bore and stroke is set at 67mm x 66.8mm the crankshaft pins are phased at 180 and a primary couple balancer sits behind the cylinders, close to the bike’s centre of gravity. The primary and balancer gears use scissor gears, reducing noise. The crank counterweight is specifically shaped for couplebalance and its light weight allows the engine to spin freely, with reduced inertia.Acting as a stressed member, the engine complements the frame’s rigidity with four frame hangers on the cylinder head. Internally the cylinder head uses roller rocker arms shimtype valve adjustment allows them to be light, for lower valvespring load and reduced friction.A silent (SV Chain) cam chain has the surface of its pins treated with Vanadium, reducing friction with increased protection against wear. Inlet valve diameter is 26.0mm with exhaust valve diameter of 21.5mm.The piston shape is based upon those used in the CBR1000RR Fireblade to reduce piston ‘noise’ at high rpm. Friction is reduced by the addition of striations on the piston skirt (a finish that increases surface area, introducing gaps in which oil can flow for better lubrication). As with the CBR1000RR, an AB 1 salt bath process, used after isonite nitriding, forms a protective oxidisation membrane.The ‘triangle’ proportion of crankshaft, main shaft and countershaft is very similar to that of Honda’s fourcylinder RR engines and much of the internal structure and engineering is taken directly from the CBR1000RR.The crankcase uses centrifugally cast thinwalled sleeves their internal design reduces the ‘pumping’ losses that can occur with a 180 phased firing order. Using the same internal relief structure as that of the CBR1000RR, the oil pump features improved aeration performance, with reduced friction a deep sump reduces oil movement under hard cornering and braking. Oil capacity is 3.2L.A sixspeed gearbox mirrors that of its RR cousin and uses the same gear change arm structure and link mechanism. aftermarket motorcycle fairings New for 2019 an assist/slipper clutch enables lighter upshifts and smooths out any hard downshifts.
