Honda CBR500R First Look Preview for the Year 2022

Honda’s 2022 CBR500R sportbike, like the CB500X and CB500F, gets new chassis components to aid improve handling and feel at the bars. The $7,199 MSRP midsize sportbike will be available in Honda dealerships this month in either Grand Prix Red or Sword Silver Metallic.

If you’ve read the previous two model reviews, you’ll know what to expect from the CBR500R: a new Showa SFF-BP inverted 41mm fork, a lighter swingarm, and new cast aluminium wheels. Honda wants to make all of its 500-level machines handle better and feel more intuitive, and the adjustments look promising.
