Funny the amount of criticism here from guys that will obviously not buy this bike!! If you don't like it, move on... Face it peeps - 120k new for this bike in this f'ed'up country is a bargain!!! Kawa can keep their 300Versys ladies bike - not in the same league!!! BM's 310 is a joke!!! KTM's 390 is fugly and you'll need 3-5 of them to maybe outlast 1 x 500X...

Like said I am thinking of getting a CB500X for my US commute next year and with some luck one BDR (back country discovery route) maybe for a week or so in Colorado.
I have already checked availability and also two accessories: SW Motech pannier racks for soft luggage and a proper aluminium bash plate.
It should give me a lot of fun commuting a total of 40 miles a day and then one adv which is absolutely doable on this bike which features in some of the BDR’s

Obviously not a good choice for Arizona and Southern California BDR’s because of all the sand riding but up North the most technical riding will be some lengths of jeep trails (twee spoor) and which is very popular here ‘ridge riding’

This bike is going to sell good for Honda in SA

I agree Gerard. This photo was taken 12 years ago. Still the most enjoyable bike I've ridden through the Baviaanskloof. I memo my friend, who was riding the TransAlp saying how tired his arms felt after the ride. Dry weight of 156kg, 42hp and a magic button!
