Congratulations with your new bike! I wish you many miles of happiness with the CBX.
Ordered mine yesterday - Gunpowder Black, and will pick it up mid-March.
We have the same storm here today/tomorrow, not a good time to be outside, winds up to 130km/h expected tonight... :005:

Sven
Cheers,
Sven

Forgive my ignorance, but what is it?  a '19?  Looks like an X, but the cowling is different, the color is wrong, it's beautiful!  Is it a Euro model of the '19?
Hi Aggie95,
European models 2020 are currently Pearl Metalloid White, Gunpowder Black or Grand Prix Red.

Well, after fitting some bits to it, decided to take it out for a short ride, just too make sure nothing was likely to fall off in the long run . . .


Nowt fell off, so thats a plus. Front fender extender doesn't really keep that much road crud off of the engine, so the sooner I sort out a DIY sump guard the better,

Adapted the rear hugger with a small drop down flap that keeps crud off the suspension linkage - it works a treat  :046:

Just got to find a vacum pipe to allow me to get the Scottoiler working.

Here is the list of "stuff" that I've fitted to the bike since its arrival in my garage.

SW Motech EVO quick release pannier frames.
Pyramid Fender extender & Rear hugger
Scottoiler


Puig Engine Bars & Aux driving lights


Home made rear suspension linkage crud protector, mounted onto the front of the rear hugger


Home made rear crud catcher (hangs under the number plate)


Took a run out this afternoon seeing as the roads were mainly dry (all moisture blasted away by the gale force winds we've had of late)


Only another 500 miles and the running in thing will be done  :152:

Definitely worth keeping as much muck of the bike as possible less work when it come's to cleaning it.

It looks nice, I like the white.

We can only get the gunpowder black in Australia.

I wanted those Evo racks also, although wasnt happy to remove the handles.
