Differences between HOR RG500 and NSR500?


Hello all,

IS the only difference between the two mk2 HOR from Kyosho the body work and the number of spokes on the wheels?

or is there some differences to the chassie also??

Thanks for the help.

rider is the same.

Only differences I remember are the tank, mudguards, cowl, exhaust pipes, wheels, decals.

It's in Kyoshos interest to keep as much the same as possible for manufacturing reasons.

He wheels are different in weight and rigidity as well. The 3 spoke Suzuki wheels are stronger than the Honda wheels.

Also - I believe the rider's butt rubs more on the RG500 tank than the NSR one because the RG has a back seat pad which you should either remove or just file down the riders butt.

NSR500 rear tank also has more room for a receiver to tuck in the back.

Like Chris pointed out I've broken my fair share of NSR front rims during crashes because the spokes are so thin. Use the RGV500 or high grip tire 3 spoke ones.
