In a press release which we received Honda explains what the letters mean for the Honda CB 500cc series. The F in the Honda CB500F stands for Free (as in Free you), and the X in the CB500X is for Extreme (as in Extreme You), and against all expectancy the R in the CBR500R stands for Real (as in the Real You).

And people this is not a joke... it's a serious press release... so please do not laugh...

Quite odd, especially for the "R". Everyone might think it stands for Racing. Or is it only me? Big Grin

Hi Silenzo,

You surely not alone with thinking that the R in CBR500R was for Racing... Actually, from the 10 people I asked all 10 selected the Racing option... so you surely not the only one who has it wrong...
