New owner in New Zealand
on: June 20, 2019, 11:54:55 PM
Hi

The 2019 model is not yet available here so I imported one from Australia.
My First new bike ever !
Started with a Honda C110 in 1975.

Welcome aboard. Honda NZ will be a little pissed that you imported from Aus. And I guess any warranty issues might be a problem but then it's a Honda and a brilliant model.

There are probably a good number of older bikes still in the shops. I haven't seen a great number on our roads.

Welcome to the forum. Like you, my first bike was a Honda, a CB360 I bought for $85. And fixed and rode for years. You'll love the CB500X!

I tried to buy from a Honda dealer in NZ, they were just as frustrated as I was as Honda NZ could not even supply an estimated date, all they said was probably 2020 and that was in Feb !
I was visiting my Daughter in Melbourne and the folk at Peter Stevens were very helpful - bike arrived as promised on the 1st April
