Honda CBR500R –  RM28,588, ABS RM31,888

A mid-size Supersport designed with lightweight agility and engaging power delivery

For riders looking to move up from a 250, or holding a B2 license, the fully faired twin-cylinder CBR500R provides an excellent first big sports bike experience, which will also appeal to experienced riders looking for a great value alternative to larger sports bikes.

The CBR500R is powered by a next generation 8-valve liquid-cooled twin-cylinder 500cc DOHC engine. This purpose-built lightweight powerplant uses a square bore & stroke of 67 mm x 66.8 mm that delivers superb peak power of 35kW at 8500rpm and maximum torque reaching 43Nm at 7000rpm. The engine is also fitted with PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel-Injection) system to ensure crisp performance and better fuel efficiency of 27km/liter (WMTC figure). Fuel tank capacity is 15.7 liters (including reserve).


Efforts to enhance a more feisty Supersport started right from the diamond shaped steel frame measuring 2075mm(L) x 740mm(W) x 1145mm(H) which is light in weight but robust in character. The rear section was designed to facilitate a lower seat height of 790mm that allows most riders to easily plant their feet on the ground when stopped.

Besides sheer performance, the CBR500R affords riders with a level of comfort on par with its image. This comes in the form of Pro-Link rear suspension with preload-adjuster and 41mm telescopic front fork to ensure a comfortable but sporty ride.

Ergonomics were carefully configured to ensure an unrestricted riding position that allows easy maneuvering in town, an easy reach to the ground, as well as excellent comfort during long-distance highway trips.

Lightweight cast aluminum wheels with Y-shaped spokes not only accentuate a sporty look, they also contribute to the bike’s excellent maneuverability.

The potent performance of CBR500R is paired with an equally powerful ABS (Antilock Brake System). Wave brake rotors with superlative heat-dissipating qualities are lighter than conventional discs of the same diameter, which help to further reduce the bike’s unsprung weight. Two POT calipers up front and a single POT caliper at the back provide strong but easily controlled stopping power.

When it comes to environmental performance, the CBR500R fares extremely well. Thanks to an in-built secondary air injection (AI) system, an Oxygen sensor and catalyser inside the exhaust that work to ensure the CBR500R’s emissions are low. CBR500R sports two 55W H7 Halogen bulbs with multi-reflectors for its signature headlight. It also comes with the assurance of HISS (Honda Intelligent Security System) against theft.

The CBR500R is available in three colour options of Pearl Himalayas White, Graphite Black and Seal Silver Metallic.

2013 Honda CB500F

Honda CB500F RM28,288, ABS RM31,388

Naked Style with punchy performance and nimble maneuverability for street riding

Stripped-down, street styling combined with easy handling. That’s the all-new Honda CB500F, the answer to riders who seek a motorcycle that is fun to ride, easy to handle and available at a reasonable price. It offers the practicality of a commuter together with the thrilling performance and distinctive style of a naked concept.

At the heart of CB500F is a next generation DOHC liquid-cooled parallel-twin 500cc engine with PGM-FI. Its light weight, all-round ability deliver a more aspirated ride. Power output reaches a maximum 35kW at 8,500rpm with excellent torque throughout the rev range peaking at 43Nm at 7,000rpm. With fuel tank capacity of 15.7 liters (including reserve), CB500F is able to deliver commendable fuel efficiency of 27km/liter (WMTC figure). Linear and smooth power delivery makes CB500F ideal for the cut-and-thrust of urban riding. Even riders new to mid-capacity engines can fully enjoy the strong level of performance.

Engine vibration is kept to a minimum by using crankshaft pins phased at 180 degrees and a primary couple-balancer behind the cylinders, which also contributes to the engine’s compact size. Careful flow analysis of the cooling system resulted in a water pump that’s small and lightweight, yet still more than capable of keeping the engine running its best at high output levels. The fuel tank holds 15.7 litres (including reserve) and combined with the engine’s excellent fuel economy gives great range of 420km.

The CB500F’s lightweight diamond-shaped steel frame measuring 2075mm(L) x 780mm(W) x 1060mm(H) was designed to allow a certain degree of yield, which enables it to better respond to changes in the road. One of the CB500F’s major plus points is its height of 1060mm, the lowest among its CBR500R and CB500X counterparts. The low seat position not only accentuates the naked style, but also adds to the accessibility of the machine, which puts riders of any physical size at ease since they can put a foot down whenever they need to. Hence, making the CB500F a fun and easy to handle naked model for all levels of riding experience.
Similar to the Supersport model, the CB500F is fitted with a Pro-Link rear suspension with 9-stage preload-adjuster and 41mm telescopic front forks to ensure a comfortable but sporty ride.

Superb braking performance is achieved through the use of wave brake rotors and two POT calipers up front and a single POT caliper at the back to provide strong but easily controlled stopping power. Plus, ABS gives riders extra peace of mind on reduced-traction road surfaces.

The CB500F’s compact handlebar-mounted fairing contributes to its bold “naked” styling, which leaves the beautifully crafted engine out in full view. Its naked-style headlight utilizes a single 60/55W H4 Halogen bulb with multi-reflectors. The model is also equipped with HISS (Honda Intelligent Security System) for the rider’s total peace of mind.

The model is available in Pearl Himalayas White, Graphite Black and Candy Ruby Red.

    […] It is now available on mudah that makes it launch is very imminent. Some says that it is going to be launched this month (September), but I heard no news yet about it. Chia Motorcycles Advance has posted this ads on mudah that should make us believe that the bike will be available very soon. The price of RM21,599 I think is still not final, I’m hoping for a lower price than that since for another RM6,000 top up, yu can get the CB500 trio. […]

    Hmmmmm I never thought my estimation of 29k would be this close, but this just proves it’s straight forward to estimate cost of bikes build and imported from Thailand from now on 🙂

    Take bike’s price in Thailand, – 7% gst, and +45% tax to bring one in Malaysia.
