Is it any wonder why the Honda CBR500R is one of our most popular sportbikes? It just gets so many things right. Price. Power. Weight. Handling. Its twin-cylinder engine revs freely and produces plenty of torque, and it lets us keep the bike narrow and nimble too. The full-coverage bodywork looks like something right off the racetrack. Best of all, it’s a bike you can start out on and never have to trade up. Plus, for 2021, every CBR500R comes with anti-lock brakes (ABS) as standard equipment. And there’s a tasty new Pearl White color scheme this year too.
