Oh how happy I was to see that, WRONG! That one must have been one of the pre-ordered ones. Spoke to the dealer yesterday, answer will you go away! ( not quite as polite as that!) Answer is still the same after Easter. Jealous of all the pre-ordered ones, oh not at all :232:

That is strange that they would only import what has been pre-order. Were pre-order #s limited? Or, you weren't ready to buy?
Here, Honda dealer take pre-orders but Larger/Mega Honda dealers are required to order extra.

Honda Aus, very inscrutable. As far as I've been informed thats all they could get from the first shipment. No idea who, what, or why, first shipment all sold to waiting buyers. Don't forget Aus market way smaller than most.

It's quite similiar here in Germany. The first three dealers I called had one to three CB500X on preorder and all were already sold.
So I asked when will I get one, when I ordner now, answer -> they are sold out, next will arrive in August  :191:

Happly the fourth dealer (quite big, 200km away) had still one preordered available.
So I just took it without any real negotiation, PickUp date is next week :D

Welcome and congrats. There have been a number of new members here on the forum with the 2019 release. Definitely a nice update for those who needed a little push towards the CB500X. Happy riding.

Thanks :) I got my A2 license (48HP max) last year and was actually looking for CB500F, as I liked the concept of the X but not really the styling. But with the improvements of the new version I just couldn't say no to the X :D

Actually that's not quite right. I walked into a bike shop near you last week, and they had an available 2019 bike in stock which I'm picking up today.

It is quite right in the fact that I repeated what I was told. Where or when there may be other 19's for sale I was not told about. Why would one dealer recommend another? The first dealer would then miss out on the sale. What then if the dealer only repeated to me what they had been told? Arguments both for and against. As for going even further into the city and looking for something that may or may not be there, no thanks. I leave that to the people that like cities, which is not me.
