Honda Canada just put out this quick video on the new model.

Thanks for posting.

This clip answers my question about the temp gauge, it is a proper gauge with led segments showing the temp level.

The new linkage looks like the one that is used on the NC series models.
Which is good as the shock bottom will not touch the dogbone as before, but definitely needs some thoughts to keep the 170mm rear suspension travel as on the current L2 bikes.

Great video from Honda Canada - OK if the price increase is 10% or less, I am down with the 2019, thinking that resale value instantly get kicked up as well.

All of this is nice to see, but if they haven't solved the wind buffeting problem I'd say it's a huge miss? Fingers crossed for future riders that they have.

Well, they've only increased screen height by 20mm so that won't make much difference. As with my (deceased) 500X I'd just put the cheap ebay screen extension/spoiler on if I were to get the 2019 model, worked a charm for me before.

The height isn't really the problem (I've got the Madstad, it's not helped much) in my opinion, it's how the airflow is managed. I wouldn't have thought they'd need a massive screen to resolve that issue. Sounds like the frontal area has had significant changes so it may be better.

Did you install the winglets over the middle cowl? I've ridden behind a Madstad on a CB-X. I was impressed at how nicely the wind flowed around and over my body and helmet. I think the screen was the 18-inch model. It wasn't overly large but was a bit wider than my 118Bikes windscreen, it the same as the Givi, but dark tint polycarbonate.

I'm struggling to see why the Honda techs thought the X was in need of a slipper clutch, to be honest, unless they have a power upgrade in mind for the future. Maybe the off roadies can chip in as to the benefits.... :027:

Mind you, I don't envisage riding my X that hard off-piste to warrant a slipper clutch anyway

Yep got the winglets and the 20" screen. I think the smaller screen is actually supposed to work better than the big one, but as I'm 6'2"  I have to have the screen up quite high to smooth the airflow on my helmet (not get me out of it). As such there is a big hole beneath the screen and I get a blast of negative pressure from there.

But let's not turn another device thread in to screen alternatives 😉. Looking forward to seeing the 2019 in the metal at some point. Shame there's not going to be a CB650X, but 4cyl engines don't seem to suit the genre apparently, which is fair. It'd have to be a CB650X Crossrunner I guess.

Loving the new light and instrument cluster on the 2019 CBX, just like everyone else.
