While no technical information has been disclosed, Honda has released a few teaser images to give us a glimpse at how the bike will look. From what we can see, the 2016 Honda CBR500R is going to look much more aggressive than the existing model. 2016-Honda-CBR500R-teaser-2 The whole design of the bike looks sharper, and gets complemented by a massive exhaust canister. Honda says that in addition to what we can see, the 2016 CBR500R gets new dual LED headlight setup and “numerous refinements” to the motorcycle.
