1988 Honda XBR500
Brilliant, reliable, excellent bike
The only thing that has ever went wrong with this bike, is when I first bought it and had to have the rear brake drum re-lined.
This is the best bike I have ever had. Would not and will not part with it. She goes where you want her too, and does everything you ask.
I prefer this to my Triumph Trophy and my Honda VTR1000.
If you want reliability, fun and good handling, this is the bike. Just remember the brakes are not up to modern day standards... however the engine braking compensates for this.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
