The decal is in top and can be removed. It's not my fav either, and looking to replace with something from Rally Raid or another company hopefully.

OK so upon closer inspection, the decal on the plastic faring is on top, but the decal on the fuel tank is under the top coat. Hopefully graphics can be applied over this part? Rally Raid, any plans?

I'm trying my best to ignore the 2019 model as I said the 2016 I bought would be my last bike.......BUT.....I'm getting more interested the more I see n read about the new model, I might have a ride to the dealer just to see what a swap would cost me??

 My 2017 bike is everything I need, and I don't need any of the upgrades to enjoy the 500X more.  I'm staying away from the dealers... because that 2019 bike looks absolutely fantastic!!!!!   :008:

So the new swinging arm is alloy, not seen that in any of the other info. Another nice upgrade.

It seems like Honda have lightened a few bits (swinging arm, battery, lights etc) to keep the weight the same while adding the (probably) heavier front end.

I'm genuinely impressed by the amount of positive changes they've made without adding much to the OTR price. When I bought my first X it was a brand new model and that cost me 4850. I guess with 6 years of inflation and a lot of useful improvements 6k is still a good price.

Hi Japes - I know it's confusing - but the swingarm is still made from steel, not aluminium - Marv just asked that on another thread...

Steel is technically an 'alloy' of course, but it is not an aluminium swing-arm on the 2019 bikes.

Ah, ok, cheers Jenny. I thought a lot more would have been made of it if they had fitted an ally one. Of course it would never be a pure aluminium one!

So how did that confusion come about - I must watch the vid again. I know they have changed the axle adjustment to a more modern design.
