The Honda cbr500 seems like it would be like a slug,425lbs at maybe 50hp.

But seriously, meh. They tweaked the suspension, changed the fairings a touch and put some new paint on it.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE
