Honda CB500X - what do think... ?
on: October 28, 2012, 12:26:04 PM
Here's a "spy" shot recently taken in Italy whilst filming a promo video for next years "alledged" CB500X.

It's a crossrunner/NC700X lookalike (again).

The bike is a 470cc parallel twin, producing, 35kW (47bhp) which is aimed at the new A2 licence. That means the bike must weigh at least 175kg, as there’s a power-to-weight limit (0.2kW per kg) in that class.

What's you opinion, curious to know what people think ?

Could be a winner for Honda but then as an owner of both a CR & a NC700X I could be biased. I think the sporty looking version of the new 500 could also be a big hit especially if they were to do it in Repsol colours

More pics of that bike and the other CB500's over at our new CBR500 forum:

Honda CBR500 Forum

Only just opened and still configuring it but the pics are there to view.

The CB500X will also have it's forum later on. Seems to be some interest for that one.  :028:
