CR 500 R

In 1984 the CR500 first went into production and came on sale later that year. It was originally known as the "Ping King". The CR500 had a 491cc liquid cooled 2-stroke engine that could make 58 HP, making the CR 500 the most powerful motocross bike that Honda had ever produced. The CR500 was difficult to kickstart as it had a big single bore it . The CR500 was incredibly powerful. However... this meant it was it was extremely difficult to ride because of the pure power it produced. The CR500 was eventually discontinued to make way for the CRF450 four-stroke. Though the CRF450 was slightly heavier than the CR500 and the difference in peak horsepower was marginal, the power band on the four-stroke motorcycles proved to be much more linear and easier for the rider to use.
