Possible new owner of a 2019 cbr500r and new member!

Hello all,

First of all, im new to this forum so i apologise if my posts etc may be in the wrong place etc. Bare with me!

Secondly, as the title says really, im looking to possibly purchase the new 2019 model cbr500r and i have a few questions and queries for you guys and girls.

Looking at the bike i can see a few things id like to change one being the bars, possibly a set of straight clip ons to replace the 2-2.5" riser bars for a more sporty feel and riding position and some nice rear sets again to improve rider positioning when riding hard. A slip on exhaust would also be on the list as the stock item looks a little naff.

There is very little info out there regarding the latest cbr500r being a new model so hopefully some of you owners could shed some light.

Cheers
Alex

You can check out the review of the 2019 500r in Top Speed. Seems like a few things were tweaked when compared to earlier models. A a bit more hp & torque in the engine room, some plastic changes, a little sportier riding position, a slipper clutch etc. more of an evolution than revolution. I ride the more stayed F version from 2016. All in all these are great little all around bikes. If you do opt for one I suggest riding it for awhile before changing anything. Just check it out & go from there. You might end up liking the stock riding position. Of course if you really want to cut to the chase, lay down a bigger packet of money & buy the CBR600RR.

Ride like your life depends on it.
