I like the look.
The small front ABS ring looks better too. And the relocated rear brake fluid reservoir is a nice touch.
Now if only you could get to the radiator cap without removing the plastic.
I almost (but not quite) wish I had waited instead of getting my '18.

I like the venting on the front...be interesting to see how much of an improvement this makes as this was a beef for many owners. Still gone with Walmart suspension despite the lift. I'm surprised they haven't done two models, an A2 compliant with mags and a 50KW, same height with spokes and tweakable suspenders...would be more expensive but what a peach that would be?

That chamfered seat has my name on it, if it's cheaper than getting mine done... :047:

I'm guessing that it's because the CB500X isn't really all that popular of a bike. Also, there might be a baby brother Africa Twin in the works, so they might now want to have too much overlap.  Just my .02

good to see Honda has people reading the forums and listening to what people are asking for.

Looks good. I'd like to see how that larger front wheel feels. how is the geometry changed to accommodate that?

Dash is a nice upgrade. Nothing wrong with the old one, except the unreadable gear indicator  :016:

Slipper clutch... Gearbox is pretty forgiving as is, for ham fist tards like me but anyway .... yes please.

An even more recommendable bike for any level rider.

Agreed about the gearbox. There has been a lot of talk about some bikes having clunky gearboxes. Even when going into first from a stop on my 2013, the bike never clunks or makes those gawd awful sounds like my old HD or even my newer Triumphs did. The 2006 DL650 also had some agricultural level shifting. The transmission on my Honda is super smooth.

Some nice nice large downloadable pictures of the new 2019 bike in red here (I've already robbed them ;o)

photo. re the conversation above, you can see the clutch cover is slightly deeper on the new bike - to contain the slipper clutch assembly presumably...

It's a good looking bike and I don't think it makes our bikes look too obviously the 'old model'!

I'm liking the slim LED indicators instead of the original (horrible) big blobby ones, adding a gear indicator and temperature info is good news (although I quite like the original faired in instrument panel shape, and even the tinted glass, I know I may be alone in that), don't care about the 19" front wheel or lack of a belly pan, mine's a road bike anyway.  :001:

Looks like the same crappy Dunlop tyres..... :023:

Right, I've got to say it. I'm sitting here at the pub with a beer after work, and looking at that bike all I can think of is two adjectives:
  • Pretty
  • Clean

Dang it, my bike was clean once. Just sayin'.
