Senior Knee Dragger
The new 2013 Honda CBR500 F (Street-fighter) rendition of Honda's new 500cc lineup.
This bike is targeted for the novice riders that want to graduate to something a bit bigger with a bit more power .. It could also be perceived as another "entry level" bike. From a marketing standpoint this bike and its two other siblings are filing the gap between the 250cc class and the 650cc - 700cc class. Honda appears to be approaching their marketing from an economical standpoint. These bikes aren't designed to compete against the Super-Sports but will provide buyers with other choices.
In terms of styling, Honda has never been overtly radical with their "sex" appeal. Those who know Honda know they usually get what they pay for. A high quality product at an affordable price.
