That may very well be the case! But be aware, often times they tack on extra charges and your bill ends up doubling. I think if that dealer has serviced other 500r's then they would also be quoting more accurately so its a question worth asking.RedLady, I was thinking maybe the price differences were possibly because I bought the bike at that location so they were charging less.
You're answer is about 6000 rpm. Whether its a keeper or not is what is your riding style? For me it will be a keeper. For others it's a stepping stone to their ultimate dream bike, end of the day they want more ponies.hey, quick question. i currently bought a ninja 250r. its my first bike, and i'm planing to upgrade soon. i've been looking into the cbr500r QUITE a bit. my main concern is the cruise rpm on the cbr. thats practically my only reason to upgrade. i dont want a 600cc super sport or anything like that. but i dont wanna be reving at 10,000 rpm on the freeway.
what rpm does the cbr500r maintain at about 80mph in 6th gear?
and also, is this cbr500r a good keeper? as opposed to my ninja 250r thats mostly just a training bike
