Sportbikes don’t have to cost five figures. At least not when you’re talking about a 2023 Honda CBR500R. Its twin-cylinder engine revs freely and produces plenty of torque, and it lets us keep the bike narrow and nimble too. The full-coverage bodywork looks like something right off the racetrack, and the suspension is top notch. Anti-lock brakes are standard, and so is some pretty impressive fuel efficiency. Best of all, the CBR500R is just plain fun to ride, whether you’re using it around town or carving up the canyons on the weekends.
