I think the CB500x will be a different animal to the CCM but I think you'll it, I like mine.
I've to start again now buying & fitting all the bits I had on the previous cb500x!!! :D

Best and fastest colour that and do you need a centre stand?

Hi Herman,

I do, still not sure whether I'm going for Hepco & Becker or SW MOTECH crash protection ( bash plate, bars etc) which raises the question of fitting compatibility .I'm all ears :)

Nice bike,it will probably be more suitable for all round riding and i bet it will get used a lot more.

I'm not off-roading anymore, so the CB500X is perfect for exploring the lesser-travelled rural lanes and I've still got the 1150 for longer rides but to be honest lighter and lower ( height and power) suits an old fogey like me these days :)

Ridden a few of the CB500's in recent years.
Always puts a smile on my face.

Let's just say they are a happy little bike and perfect for the Welsh back roads.

I'll keep an eye out for you.
