A fully-faired budget sportbike, the Honda CBR500R is the creme de la creme of Honda CBR family. Both the 2013 Honda CBR500R and Honda CB500F, the stripped version of the R have just been ridden by the European motorcycling media. A launch event in America is coming soon. First ever to give a first-ride review of the bikes was MCN’s Phil West who traveled to Barcelona for the European launch. Overall, Phil likes the bikes; says that though there’s nothing great about them, they are fun to ride. His advice: buy the cheap F (probably because it looks and performs the same as the R anyway).
