Honda CBR500R launched in Vietnam with USD forks, dual-channel ABS from 70.99 million VND

08 Oct 2021

Sales in Thailand indicate that Honda CBR500R 2022 will soon be available in Vietnam.

After being sold in Europe from September 2021, Honda has also put CBR500R 2022 on shelves in Thailand. With this action, this mid-sized sportbike being available in Vietnam becomes highly likely. The price of Honda CBR500R 2022 in Thailand starts from 219,800 Thai baht – equivalent to 148 million VND. This proves to be a rather competitive price in the market.

The new version of CBR500R does not have many design changes compared to its predecessor, but the new LED headlight system takes after the CBR650R with 25% better brightness. The display screen is still a full-color LCD. A sharp mask along with delicate air intakes provides better aerodynamics for the bike.

However, the most remarkable upgrade is in the safety equipment. Specifically, the 320mm diameter double disc brake system with 2-piston mount in the old generation has been replaced. The model now comes with 296mm diameter double disc brake with a 4-piston mount, improving braking force. At the rear, the bike still uses a single 240mm disc brake, with a single-piston mount. The vehicle is also equipped with a dual-channel ABS to help ensure safety in operation.

Honda also equips CBR500R 2022 with Showa 41mm Upside Down forks taken from CBR650R to enhance shock absorbtion and provide a more impressive riding experience. The rear suspension remains a single-spring shock absorber with multi-level adjustment. The bike is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, and tire sizes stand at 120/70 and 160/60, respectively, for the front and rear wheels.

In terms of power, Honda CBR500R 2022 still comes with an in-line 2-cylinder liquid-cooled engine block with a total capacity of 471cc. The engine block produces a maximum capacity of 46.9 horsepower at 8600 rpm, and maximum torque of 43 Nm at 6500 rpm. The bike is also equipped with Assist & Slipper Clutch to make gear shift easier. Of course, this generation still meets EURO5 emission standard.

Currently, Honda is also distributing genuine CBR500R in Vietnam. However, this is the version from 2020-2021 and has a selling price of 187 million VND. It is expected that when CBR500R 2022 becomes available, the price will be more or less the same.
