Bought CB500X yesterday:)
« on: December 28, 2018, 10:12:38 AM »
Nice forum and thanks for letting me in. Yesterday I signed the contract for a secondhand CB500X, 2018 model.

The bike is only 4 months old and gone 850 km, before it ended in the asphalt :191: by pervious owner. Damage was not huge in my opinion (see the picture) and all of it is fixed now by the Honda-dealer (except from the exhaust that only had minor scratches). They give 5 years warranty on the repair as the rest of the bike so not much to worry about I think. Price was also very nice I think and the only reason why I could buy this bike and not an much older one. 20.000 NOK decuton or 2000-2500 EURs down. This also includes 1. time service and registration and winter storage:) Hope the winter will be short this year;)

Please have a look at the pictures and comment if there is something I should be aware of, not paid yet, but signed;)

Anyway, I am very happy with the bike, pretty sure it is perfect for me. Mostly plan to use it for learning together with my oldest son. In Norway you can only do learning on a bigger bike and with InterCom (yes you can be on his bike, but that is to dangerous I think and makes it more difficult for him aswell). He have a KTM 125 Duke.

Anyway, 10 year since I sold my V-Strom 650 and I have not been driving after that so I will start of learning on the Duke to take it slowly!

Hi Boris....looks like a bargain! First thing I would do is check the alignment of the front and rear wheels. The front end is easily knocked out of alignment during a crash...easy job

Welcome to the forum! You really don't have any thing to worry about regarding your bike. I have seen a cb500x with so much more damage on the side and front end than that. It made me weep, but then, it was mine!

Most of that will polish out  :016:

Seems mostly cosmetic. Are you going to repair it so it's like new again, or just sort out the bits which are broken?

I've been to Norway a couple of times (by car only), hoping to take my CB500X there at some point. Great roads and scenery over there for biking (in the summer, at least...)

Anyway, welcome to the forum!
