The 2017 Honda CBR500R has all the traits to make it a best choice for lots of riders. The price, for starters, is around $6,500, making it one of the more economical options of the year. The motorbike has had a stylistic facelift, too, and the 2017 has a great look. It’s also a mid-weight motorcycle with the Honda 471 cc parallel twin engine. That keeps this particular sport bike light and small enough for new riders of all sizes to comfortably handle. It will definitely make a great entry-level sport bike. Those who are experienced riders, though, will enjoy it because it is athletically nimble and fun, with reliably responsive handling. Plus, the 2017 CBR500R has newly enhanced suspension, air intake and exhaust systems.
