2013 Honda CBR500RA C-ABS

The CBR500RA ABS features a full bodywork cowl and a 31-inch seat height. It’s an excellent choice for riders ready to move up a displacement class, or for any rider who’s looking for a light, sporting, do-it-all street machine.

The CBR500RA is a true Honda mid-size sportbike, purpose built for riders looking for a fun combination of power, handling, racy excitement and everyday usability. Its light and compact 470 cc DOHC fuel-injected parallel-twin engine emphasizes strong low and midrange power, using a blend of all-new technology and features developed for the CBR600RRA and CBR1000RRA. A sleek, aerodynamic fairing inspired by the CBR1000RRA and sporty 17-inch wheels with a unique Y-shaped spoke design make it easy to mistake the CBR500RA for one of the bigger-displacement CBRs, but light overall weight and a narrow width help to give it a nimble personality all its own. And with a seating position that’s more relaxed than on most sportbikes, the CBR500RA is perfectly happy to take you to work on the weekdays and then head far from home on the weekends. Plus, you get the added benefit of ABS brakes for superior stopping performance on all road surfaces. This is a bike with almost limitless potential; a bike that you’ll continue to find new ways to enjoy, year after year after year.
