The cb500x 2019. Can it travel comfortably on a 350km. double?

Double ? You mean with pillion ?

If yes go for the Tracer.

I have visited Spain, France, Germany, Italy and the X does it well and I still have to watch speed limits. It happily cruises at 140/150 kph. It's a great pleasure in mountain hairpins. It will take me to Italy again in comfort and totally relaxed manner this year.

But it does not have the excitement of the 700 when opening the throttle and breaking speed limits.
niceee. Double??

140/ 150 kilometers is much here because the road have radars

Pillion means passenger, so yes, two people.

Better maybe but not necessarily good. If you're doing any sort of long distance riding I would not recommend the Tracer or Honda for two people.

They are small bikes, you would be cramped with two of you on them
