CBR500

Saw it at the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach today, not impressed in the least. Steel frame, bland styling would rather do either the CBR250 or 600 instead ....

they are actually really nice, and the beauty of it is my wife can actually ride one being 5'. This bike is filling a great niche spot in the market imho.

Almost looks identical to the CBR250's here in Japan.

So why start a thread if you were so unimpressed? There are a lot of bikes that do nothing for me, but are perfect for other people.

*shrugs*

Life is that way at every turn.

Definitely a good bike for my GF who wants to ride a sportbike.

Got any pics of other bikes at the show? 2013 Repsol perhaps?
