Finally - a gear indicator! That display looks quite cool, actually.

Slipper clutch too... is it needed?

I wish they'd given us an extra couple of litres of fuel, but the body shape looks pretty much the same as what we've got.

Yeah, if it ain't broke don't fix it?

Quite nice new clocks, facelift to body panels and badging and a trimmed down front mudguard are about all I can see..... I wonder if they've put better tyres on it!!

I'm reading it has a 19" front wheel, very nice, this is one thing I wanted. Looks like they kept the good stuff and just improved the rest, nicely done Honda. Also it may have a bit more ground clearance.

I wonder if they added the slipper clutch to save the shaft bearing? There have been numerous shaft bearings behind the clutch go out from hard use. This spans the CB line up, not just the X. Mine is starting to make a low pitch whine. My ear really picks up on since I've been off the bike for nearly two years.  :084:

Translation:

The Honda CB500X 2019 is one of the simplest and most capable adventure bikes available to any driver. This model is very versatile, which is perfect for day-to-day activities and for weekend trips. Although it remains very similar to the previous model, this season comes with some news.

The evolution of this crossover has been very important this season. Its adventurous character is enhanced by its new aesthetic details, which make it sharper and more inspired by the Africa Twin. The tank is more integrated between the side panels, visually connecting the front and back. But it is not only aesthetic this change since the Honda CB500X has improved its aerodynamics by reducing the air pressure on the screen and the fairing. The profile of the seat is also thinner, which allows more movement on the bike and making the free height to the ground more accessible. Its maneuverability is also greater thanks to the 3 increase of the turning radius (38). It also incorporates a new handlebar.

The suspensions have increased their travel 10 mm reaching now 150 mm in the adjustable fork in preload and behind it goes from 118 to 135 mm with a new monoshock that replaces the previous double suspension that offers 9 preload points. The front wheel has grown from 17 to 19 inches, which denotes its more traveler and adventurous approach.

The engine of the Honda CB500X 2019 remains in the maximum 35 kW for the A2 car, has improved its power performance and par 4% in the low and medium displacements, something that has been achieved by adjusting the intake, exhaust and distribution. We must mention the new double output silencer and the new anti-rebound clutch.

The instrumentation has improved thanks to the new LCD screen now with indications of up gear and gear indicator geared. On the instrumentation you can also place a GPS; for example. LED technology now also comes to the turn signals.

The Honda CB500X 2019 can be chosen from the colors Red Grand Prix Red, matt black Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic and pearl white Pearl Metalloid White.

New dash and cockpit:



Note. taller bar risers, and flatter bars - that should allow a wider range of aftermarket bars to be fitted.
