CB500X - General Chat / CB500XA: Gone, but not forgotten!
« on: July 05, 2017, 11:59:08 PM »
Well, today my 2016 CBX went to its new owner.  Bittersweet as I really liked the bike for its nimbleness, frugal fuel consumption and the "smiles per mile" factor.  But in the end, I just couldn't justify keeping it in addition to my DL. 

The new owner has been lurking here already and I'm sure he will pop up soon with his intro.

I wish him well and I know all of you will make him feel welcome on this great forum.



This came with the bike I recently purchased, but I do not intend to use it. It is like new and shows no evidence of wear or damage - including the map window.

New price at Revzilla is $166. It is listed to include a rain cover, which I did not receive. It does have a built-in waterproof bag, so not sure what the extra rain cover would offer anyway. The tanklock system requires the motorcycle mounting ring and model specific adapter, both available on Revzilla or other on line sources.

I would consider this bag too large when used as a tank bag for a bike the size of the CB500X and feel it is better suited for a larger bike.  The previous owner of my bike installed the mounting ring on the tail rack and used this bag as a tail bag.  This would be an ideal option for anyone wanting a nice, easily removable, tail bag on their bike.

$75 shipped to lower 48

I've only owned this bike a short time and it is a great machine - but I have decided to go a different direction. 

This is one of the most enjoyable to ride motorcycles I have ever owned - but I need to clear out space in my garage and it has to go.  Bike is pristine. Virtually brand new for far less $$$. The only difference in this bike and the 2017 model is color and about $2000!!   This is the ABS model.

I've added:
Givi rear rack/adapter plate
Givi V40 Tech Series tail trunk
Honda Centerstand
Honda Handguards
Grip Puppies (foam covers for greater comfort)
Genuine (Helm) Honda Service Manual

Bike has never been off road, dropped or otherwise abused. Only 527 miles!  Always garaged and on a battery tender.  Fresh oil and filter change!

Located in western Nebraska, just off I-80.  If a fly-n-ride is an option, I can pick you up at the Denver airport a couple hours away. 



Even though these have been around for a little while, today was the first time I had discovered them.  Suppose to be a more urban version of the popular Outback series.  Has anyone tried either the 36L or 30L version?

I'll post some pictures once I figure out how to reduce the file size.

Let the farkling begin!!

Long time rider (Sport Touring and Adventure Touring) and short time lurker here!  Been checking out the CB500X as a good stablemate for my Tenere - and eventually a replacement as I downsize.

I test rode a used 2016 ABS about 2 weeks ago and was very impressed, although it was too cold to spend any time out on the highway. 

Anyway, glad to find this forum and plan to stick around a while!!
