Considering you've ridden the older bike, I'd say take the 19 out and let us know what you think.

I will pop up to my Honda dealer at some point, see if they have a demo bike.

There is no harm to listen to somebody else's opinion, and to be honest I think I was waiting to see somebody not agreeing with the masses just to offset common hymns of glory, I suppose :) The thing that caught my attention most were complaints about vibrations. That one thing alone is why I want to get rid of my Transalp. I am looking for a smooth bike, will appreciate if people could comment on that - on 2019 model vibrations, that is.

I was a little surprised that Whistle Dick said the older CB500X was his favorite bike, yet he doens't own one.  Never heard of the guy before so maybe he's an okay fella.  It was good to hear his opinions.   Racer

I have a 19, the only bit of vibration I get is around 5000 revs, but its so minimal you can hardly notice it,  at the end of the day its a machine built to a price. its a very good machine for the price though.
if it has tits or spark plugs you are going to have trouble

Seconded. Windscreen turbulence is the only issue I notice, but that's all relative to my dimensions

Sometimes I wonder about all the discussions about wind turbulance and vibration.  It's a motorcycle not an Easyboy!

Turbulence is an issue that many bikes with windscreens face, sometimes one being much worse than the other. I can confirm this, as I've gone through a number of screens on my bike and dialed it out. Previously there was enough to shake my helmet and blur my vision above 50 mph. So yeah, it's something that needs to be addressed for some riders.

Soooo, anyone in North America got their 2019 yet?

I was really hoping to get it this weekend but the dealer says next week for sure.

It looks like we will have to wait 2-4 weeks more- my dealer will call as soon as it comes in
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike
