As has been said many times before... this bike is intentionally designed for high torque and limited HP to be compliant with the A2 licensing limit in some countries.  So, no, Honda is not going to tweak it for more HP.  They did up the torque, but not the HP so as to stay within the A2 limits.  If you must have more HP then this is not the bike for you.

True...but you can always dream... :001: The old CB 500 (499cc, 8v parallel twin ) pumped out a shade below 58 standard...considerably more if you tuned it. 20Kgs lighter, also. They used to race them in the Thunder Sport 500 Cup....probably did about 20mpg though

I think if Honda had a mind to they could do an A2 compliant and a full blown...they won't though, as it'll take sales off other models

What we need is a 650 twin with about 70bhp, top notch suspension, spoked 18/21 wheels (or 17/19), seat height no more than 830mm, wet weight of 200kgs, decent dash but no fancy modes/electronic suspension and made by Honda! Not bothered about super long travel suspension or lots of ground clearance, seat height, low weight and manageability are more important.

If Honda made something like that I'd pay 10k for it any day. I'll probably have to compromise and get a 2019 with Rally Raid wheels and suspension though!!
BMW 700GS. 2018 was the last of em. 2019 the 750GS is in the $14,000 US. You can find a good 2015 or so for around 8,500ish

We still have Thundersport CB500 class racing at Knockhill - great stuff too.

CaptainBart, yes the F700 is on my list of possibles, in fact I almost bought one in 2013 but got the CB-X instead.

I'm really after a new bike so thought the F750 might be the answer but when I looked at it its just way too big and heavy.

I keep coming to the same conclusion with many bikes, they all end up being too heavy for what they are. My Tracer 900 is only 210kg wet, lighter than many of the lesser powered bikes.

  Yep, I am waiting to see the actual price of the 2019 500x. I haven't put my 2004 R1150R up for sale yet...

$7599.00 Canadian MSRP.

https://motorcycle.honda.ca/model/adventure/cb500x
 

At today's rate that's $5700+ American...so I'd guess At Most they will want maybe $5999.00- $6100.00  MSRP?


mid to late May delivery according to my dealer...

it really is!

all the upgrades and only a couple of hundred bucks  jump in price.

Keep in mind the Canadian version is ABS, all bikes in Canada seem to be ABS now. I think the USA will still sell non ABS bikes (anyone know for sure?) so it could even be a bit cheaper!

oooohh. I am probably really low on my guess :187: :187: :187: :187:. the USA 2018 abs is $6899.00MSRP..

http://powersports.honda.com/2018/cb500x/options.aspx

add the 300 bux increase (if it's similar to the Canadian price increase).so I guess it's likely closer to $7200.00 that's $9553.00 CAD!!!!!!

that's weird. it's more expensive in the US than Canada. that isn't usually how it works. :431:
