I'd definitely go for an ABS bike. It is really good as it is, and wort case you can disable with a simple switch.

You beat me to it--the price is better than I though it would be-- now lets see how long it takes for the dealers to get it in

Yes I agree. I put a $500 deposit on an ABS model to have ordered for me. My guy said he'll let me know when he has an idea on delivery. Should be open for ordering next week.

I checked the Honda site early this morning and the prices were not up but they are now! I will be putting down a deposit tomorrow on a 19 ABS!

The high winds we've been having let up a bit today, so was finally able to enjoy riding this new 19 today after picking it up last saturday.
I love how light it feels and how easy it is to chuck it around, especially after owning many of the leviathan big cc adventure bikes . Obviously breaking it in so being easy on it, but i can tell its going to have enough pep for me. It looks good, it sounds great, and after putting a few miles on it i even got used to the pegs being a bit too far back, which i originally had reservations about. After a 100 miles today, i realised i could easily do a decent amount of touring mileage on this. It could be the most consummate all rounder i've ever owned.
Absolutely no regrets buying it.
Thanks for the update. I'm really interested in your opinions on this bike. Strongly considering to part with Transalp 700 for 2019 cb500x. l'm also 6ft2, with 34" inseam and little worried about the comfort on long rides. Any updates on how things are going with you and your new bike will be appreciated.

Guess it goes without saying-but the first one to see it in a US dealer-- to shout out--I'm going to my dealer Tuesday to see if he ordered one being he still has a 2017 on the floor that I would buy if I could get it for $1500 less out the door now that we know the price of it--we will see

Good luck negotiating Motorboy - fwiw. I paid $5500 out the door (in California) for my 2014 model bike in September 2015... it had been on the shop floor at least a year by then (based on the build date), and there was only the 2016 revisions due - which as I recall had not actually been announced yet [in Sept 2015] and the dealer was still keen to trade....

If your dealer still has a 2017 bike on the shop floor with a new model featuring substantial changes imminent, I'm sure you out to be able to strike a similar deal there - the bike has to be costing him money now.

If I remember right I paid $6,300 out the door for my new 2014 500X in 2014 so this left over would be $6,200 out the door-- I know the 2019 has improvements but fear of the unknown has me thinking hard new is not always better like shaved seat - higher seat-19'' front wheel and so onl- at lease I know the old bikes pro's and con's- but any less than saving $1,500 I'll go to the 2019

I've not rode it much the last week, due to the high winds we've been having here. But its calming down now, so should be getting more miles on.
Went out and did 100 miles about a week ago and there's nothing that stands out that i dont like about this bike. I'm 6'1" with 34 inseam, could do with a bit more seat to peg distance on this bike, but i've sorta got used to it. Screen works great with no buffeting for my height.
I've put Givi monorack arms on for a tailpack or topbox, the 1121FZ ones for the older models fit this new model.
Not rode the Transalp 700, but i did have a 600 Transalp once, although it was 20 years ago, so cant really compare them.
