I think most of you must have taken the lovely ride of Honda's CBR 250 and must be thinking what will be the next level of Honda's CBR. Well here it comes to give you the deadly virtual ride of Honda cbr 500. Ya it sports a muscular 5oocc engine. It will be introducted you too (EXPECTED) mid 2013 and it will be in affordable price range of 4.0-5.0 lac (INR).
Now you can't resist to read more about it let me tell you the family of 500cc engine includes CBR500, the CB500 and the CB500X. All three engines are essentially powered by the same deadly 500cc engine but cater to different of tastes of riders.
The new CBR-500 line-up consists of a sporty middleweight super-sports-like. It completes with a full-fairing, split seat and sporty ergonomics accompanied by a CB-500 naked machine taking inspiration from the bigger and badder CB-1000R.
Platform sharing is the new way forward in the motorcycle business and going by this rule, all three bikes will employ engine and chassis as well as certain body panels from the same parts bin to keep the costs under check while adding a variety of models to the Honda range.
However from what we hear, only the CBR-500 and the CB-500 naked will initially make their debut in India in 2013 and brought in via the CKD channel, the two bikes will carry a highly competitive price tag to fight the likes of the KTM 390 Duke and the Kawasaki Ninja 300 as well as the Ninja 650 and the Youngish twins.
