2019 SM 500 R
For 2019 SWM Motorcycles has issued us a heart-stopping, pavement punishing machine - the SM 500 R. Outfitted with a super sticky set of 17” wheels & tires, this bike finds grip and stability you never thought possible. Geared just a bit differently than its off-road counter part, the SM 500 R doubles as a street weapon and track machine.
The front suspension consists of a KAYABA telescopic hydraulic fork with upturned stems and an advanced pivot, hydraulic brake adjustment in compression and extension.
The single beam, double cradle made of high-strength steel tubes and the rear frame in light alloy give your SM 500 R the greatest of stability.
The front and rear Brembo brakes ensure excellent power and reliability, for top performance.
The powerful and robust single-cylinder 501cc with double overhead camshaft guarantees high power and torque values.
The rear suspension consists of a progressive "soft damp" with a KAYABA hydraulic shock absorber. Adjustment of spring preload and hydraulic brake is in compression (double) and extension.
