Went to the dealers today to have a look at the 2019 X and have a sit on it. I really liked it, looks even better in the flesh. Really liked it in red as well. Most importantly it didn't feel any different height wise which was worrying me slightly. It's been over a year since I sold my X but it felt just the same as I remember when sat on it. The new seat seemed a bit softer which is good as well. Didn't get chance to see the dash lit up so that will have to wait for the test ride.

I also sat on an Africa Twin which is something I've been thinking about going for instead of the X. It's a superb bike but so heavy feeling compared to the X. Seat height was fine for me but it's getting on and off that is the problem - just too high at the back. I'm not going to rule the AT out (95 bhp can be very persuasive!) but I think the X is looking good at the moment. As soon as I see one all RR'd up I'll probably make my mind up for definite!

Called into my local Honda dealership today and they finally have a 2019 CB500X in stock, so I had a good poke around it. Have to say, I like what Honda have done. Design wise, they've tidied things up nicely. The 2017 and 2018 bikes now look a little fussy in comparison (though in isolation, they still look great to my eyes)

Clutch lever is considerably lighter on the 2019 bike. It makes no difference to me, as I've never found the lever heavy on my 2017 bike. Looks like the lighter socket must be an option on UK bikes, as it was covered by a blank on this one?

I think Honda have done a really good job with updating CB500 range, some nicely thought out improvements on the bits they've paid attention to. They also had a 2019 CBR500R, which looked magnificent - again, brimming with lots of nice details.

I agree that the 2019 bike is worth the bump up in price, but interestingly the sales person at the dealership told me that the increase has driven people to go for the NC750, as the price difference has shrunk and if the bike is financed through a lease, the monthly payments are identical.

I also had a poke around a CRF250 Rally...now there's a bike I can see myself owning in the near future!
