CB500X - General Chat / Re: Honda win the Dakar Rally!

Honda did show a 'concept' CRF450L 'Rally' at EICMA (at the end of 2018) - built around the CRF450L, but with what looked like a very production-ready tower, tank and fairing/skid plate fitted, it even had turn-signals and DOT lights fitted.

Now they've finally won a Dakar [this century], perhaps that will get the green light for 2020? - it's not a full-on RFR of course, but fundamentally the bike is street legal in the US (and all around the world), and would be a great 'everyman' (and woman ;o) basis as a privateer rally bike for mere mortals?


I would think Honda would Rush out a production version of this ASAP.

It would pull some of the media buzz and customers away from the Yamaha T7.

Buy an abs model. If you are out riding and want to shut off abs, just lock the front down on a loose surface and spin the back wheel hard for like 3 seconds. The abs light on the dash starts blinking, and the system shuts off. You can manual brake till your heart's content.. Then... when you get back to ABS friendly terrain, shut your engine off, and your abs will operate as normal after startup.
ABS really is the best choice. It's a wonderful invention. It saves lives.

I'm loving mine. I went on a family vacation and had to store it away in a garage for three weeks....the moment I got back iI went for a ride.

Honda has gotten back to what a motorcycle should be. basic reliable fun transportation without any of the BS.

Stopped in with my family at Two Scoop Steve's in Yahk on our vacation and a cb500x went scooting by on highway 3 heading towards Creston.

saw several more 500X's on my travels across the prairies to the Okanagan Valley. Hope you all had fun.

I found another company that has an engine guard/cage that will also fit the '19.  It's T Rex racing.

It looks pretty solid and also has a puck slider incorporated.  I asked them if I could get one unfinished in bare steel, you know so I can add some personalized fabrication and whatnot (highway pegs, auxiliary light mounting tabs, fastening points for storage), and that would be an upcharge of $100.  How can it be more expensive for less work and materials?

Be wary about the fit.
I asked them about it on a youtube thread and they replied yes without hesitation. That was months before anyone in North America had seen a 2019 in the flesh. They were willing to promise fitment on a bike they had never even seen in the flesh.
