guys put down deposit on a cbr500 red abs two days ago at Bangkok Motorshow and i am the first one to receive red one in Thailand in the list
It costs 204.000 thb - around 6600 usd - here and we only get abs versions in Thailand.
I will receive my bike on 11th or 12th of December and i cannot wait man!!!
I have seen the bikes and sat on them. Quality wise, they look fine.
Cbr500 looks super compact guys. It looks smaller than cbr250 when you look at it or sit on it!!!
And, good news: the Honda bigwign staff confirmed me that the bike will be 47 hp at the rear wheel so around 54 hp on crank
three different staff confirmed me this at the motorshow and i think and hope this is true
Also there the mugen version of cbr500 and moriwaki cb500f and we get red colour for cb500f. cbx also looks good guys.
cb500f and cbr500r will get dunlop sportmax d222 and cbx will get pirelli scorpion trails.
Overall, i liked all of the 500 series but red cbr500 is the best looking imho.
happy with my purchase
