3. Honda CBR500R
The 2016 Honda CBR500R was aggressively restyled to more closely resemble its CBR600RR and CBR1000RR counterparts. In addition to its new styling, the CBR500R also receives new LED headlights and taillights, a lighter muffler design for better mass centralization and an “improved” exhaust note, according to Honda. Other additions include an adjustable front brake lever, smoother gear change feel, a larger fuel tank with hinged cap, and preload-adjustable front suspension. The 2016 Honda CBR500R will be available in Red, Matte Black Metallic and Pearl White, starting in early 2016 with an MSRP of $6,499.
