The 2013 Honda CB500X - Lightweight Adventure Bike

The Honda CB500X is probably the smallest displacement adventure bike available, the new for 2013 Honda CB500X takes Honda's new 500cc class liquid-cooled DOHC parallel twin engine and chassis, and stretches its legs a bit.

With the CB500X, Honda made the suspension a bit longer than on its two pure-street cousins, the rake is kicked out a degree and the wheelbase is a tad longer – all giving the Honda CB500X more stability and a more relaxed chassis.
A small windscreen and plastic cowling protecting the exhaust add to the flexibility of the Honda CB500X, and Honda has a number of optional luggage and dirt-road oriented accessories that can turn the CB500X into an even more appealling Adventure tourer.

The Honda CB500X is perfect for any rider stepping up from a smaller machine, and Honda is calling its new 500cc line the true middleweight with compact dimensions, punchy performance and nimble handling. The Honda CB500X is also a very afordable motorcycle with a purchase price of 215,000 THB it's available from the current 3 Honda Big Wing dealers in Thailand. Basically the Honda CB500X gives a relaxing upright riding position and wide handlebars will give anyone looking for their first adventure sporty motorcycle an exhilarating experience on any Thai street or road surface.

had a 500x for 3 days now, well pleased, plenty of acceleration, took it up to 140 kph comfortably n seemed to have plenty more left, considering i was coming down from a 1000cc fazer thats saying something, easy to ride n comfy position too, ten out of ten for me !
