Looks good. Pity can't turn traction control off though.

Oversight on his part? or does it have traction control?

Zero traction control... only full time/on Two-Channel ABS

Bennetts review was posted on the official 2019 CB500X thread and looks like the reviewer made mistakes there too.
Claims to have Traction Control which it does not & ABS in front w/ no mention of ABS also in rear brake.

Honda CB500X (2019) | Review By Michael Mann

Above: Even with traction and ABS on, there’s still plenty of off-road entertainment to be had

2019 Honda CB500X Brakes
Evaluating brake performance all depends on the aggression with which you ride. The spec sheet shows a single wavy 310mm disc with a two-piston Nissin caliper with its ABS on the front which is more than capable at slowing the 197kg adventure style bike.

Looks like they pulled the first video down due to detail error.

Yet another one saying you can't read the display in sunlight. A really stupid mistake for a firm like Honda to make.
