Will Honda actually launch CBR500R in 2016? If yes, when?

There is no such motorcycle segment in the Indian as the category of super bikes start at 650 cc only. Honda too had launched the CBR650F last year whereas it should have been the CBR500R instead. The bike comes with 471cc, 2-cylinder engine producing 46.9 Bhp @ 8500 rpm and 43 Nm @ 7000 rpm. if planned for India, the bike would launch for around INR 4-4.5 lakh.
