    Looks cool. Theyve gone with that upright seating position again which is GHEY. Is this a parallel twin?

    Don't hate.
    Not bad,
    CBX should be upright and Cbr a sportier position but looks better then before.

    Pity its not a lightweight single cyl, but good to see more affordable bikes in the lineup.

    From what the reports say, its a twin

    Such a shame that Honda isnt sticking to the inline 4 engines while retaining the CBR brand. First the 250 and now the 500

    boo

    Reminds me of the Kawasaki's from the 80's

    They've already got the 600RR, I don't think there's much sense in an i4 500.

    Modern 600's have every performance base covered, powerful and featherweight.

    No need for overpriced small bikes anymore.

    What I was referring to was the marque "CBR" moving from 4 cylinders to singles and twins

    Re the marketing and market gap point you raised : how about the time when they had the CBR250, CBR400, CBR600, CBR750, CBR900, CBR1000 all of them inline 4's

    and then came along the 1100XX

    ^ it does. No inverted forks either but meh, gotta build to a budget! Shame it's not I4 like K said. Dunno what Aufitt is smoking though, the only bikes that should be single cylinder are dirt bikes/motards and scooters, keep that single cylinder shit away from the sports bike scene :P

    Also doesn't look like it has the usual solid built aluminium frame of the CBR600/1000, looks more like the 250R frame. And still only single disk on the CBR500?
