Thank you guys

What mods are you planning, if any?
I'm not planning mods at the moment; I already spent everything I had and even a little more hehe, as I'm still a law student.

I guess a fender eliminator and new turn signals would be appreciated.

Edit: by the way, there is no choice in Italy. Only red, with wheel stickers and ABS; luckily it's my favourite combination!

Very pretty color scheme.
Fender eliminators can leave you messed up when the roads get wet.

Ride safely & Have fun

Beautiful bike. I was forced to accept black to get ABS (2014). Your new gen looks so much better after they got rid of those ugly panels aft of the engine.

Every time I see a current CB500 I think to myself "how can they bang these out so cheap".

Don't be in a rush to mod for the sake of modding. Big Red has a pretty good idea of how to get it right the first time.

I agree, the only meaningful mod to this bike would be suspension but since you have already overspent then I suggest setting the preloads for both front & rear and go riding. The less time you spend in searching and then installing those mods, the more time you spend on riding it... Remember, time and money are finite resources ;-)

Love the bike... but **** Honda make some ugly exhausts.
Most every make is making "ugly" and huge mufflers on bikes nowdays thanks to Euro4 regs.

You should see the thing on my Tuono:



Or on the new GSX-R1000:



The CBR's muffler looks positively good in comparison. :)

Love the new gen 2017!
Saw one just like this riding up the mountain the other week. Super clean.
I wish there was an easy way to get those headlights on older gens. =)

Very nice... love the red ... in 2015, there were two colors to choose from here in the states, black or silver. I chose silver.
