A quick update for those who've bought the 2019 model: Fuelly has added the bike to their database, so you can start tracking your fuel-ups.

I'd love to do that, however Mr Honda Aus says the new shipment of bikes is still 2-3 weeks away. Not impressed.
Hope you're very happy with yours, not that I'm jealous oh no, well not much anyway!

Great review! - I recommend you push through the nasty music at 1.00-1.30, and enjoy the rest of what he has to say!

Good review. Looks like a softly sprung and under dampend bouncy suspension that needs to be "Rally Raided" , but boy is she pretty !  :028:
Better suspension and tires , a fender extender and radiator protection and it would make a perfect everyday road bike.

Thanks for the DriveMag Riders link. Can't wait for their next 2019 CB500X adventure

The best quote from the video is, the CB500X is half the price of the AfricaTwin but it is more than half the bike (not exact words).
How much more depends of each individual... but I think we can all agree with 53 pages and counting, the 2019 is a great bike

The 2019 catching some air (not much but it is a CB500X) and some dirt riding. 
Fast forward to 3:30seconds for dirt and 6:10seconds for the jump. Surprise that the rear compression/rebound was smoother than expected.

Before anyone complains (as they did with the high speed Tenerife press launch riding), jumping this bike or any non-MX suspension equipped bike is bad for the motorcycle. It's only a REVIEW!!!

The new downpipes and lack of undertray/sump guard make the left side look a bit naff if you ask me. Needs a guard or the original X plastic undertray to finish it off. Will look pretty good (for a modern bike anyway!) then. Iím erring towards the black at the moment - the silver on the red and white looks a bit too erm, silver. The black has a more gunmetal colour on those areas.

They really should have kept the belly pan from the 2016 and before, looked a lot better, and considering they're trying to push the new model as an adventure bike it's odd that it didn't make a return.

If I were to purchase it would be the black colour too.

Theyíve missed a trick there - they should have made a nice alloy guard and had it as an accessory.
