    thanks for the adivce on the carb! ill do that! i had a jis screwdrive but i think my dad took it....

    and yes i could but here is the issue i have a dual sport that i made a sm and i dont plan to get rid of it i mean why would i? its cheap af to own and built how i want to. i want a true dirtbike thats light and simple for offroad use only. if it goes on the street its only to go from trail to trail like i did in Co. id also prefer fuel injection for it. for a street bike i want a actual sport bike something quick but nothing toooo fast since someone has already told me no and welll she said no so ill listen lol. so looking at either a cbr500r, ninja 400, mt07. i prefer the cbr since its larger and feels a lot comfier to me but ill take either of em

    Totally get ya there on fuel injection / more modern and more street worthy. CB500X? would allow for some mild off road with wayyyy better than plated dirtbike street manners.

    Totally get that! The Honda 500 parallel regardless of platform is a phenomenal motor. Nope its not the most power but for 99% of riding, its going to do amazing, last a LONG time with little maintenance, and get great MPG's.

    the Honda 500's do carry a smidge of a price premium. If you are looking for more of a sport bike, an SV650/SV650S 2003 or newer model year is a great option. 90* V twin with great usable power thats on a bulletproof proven platform with TONS of aftermarket support.

    yup ive been seeing a few at 80k miles with no issues and 65mpg sounds great and they do come with a price but id rather pay it eventually tbh.. the sv650 isnt bad but not what i truly want and yes i know picky but it do be how i am haha

    for dirt i want a ktm 2 or 4 stroke 2015 or newer

    for street i want the ones i mentioned earlier but would prefer the cbr500r

    Next tear they are replacing the CB500X with the NX500. You might like the styling more, but it's still upright rather than a sport tuck position.

    Wht they don't just put spoked wheels on that is beyond me. The baby CRF's, Transalp, and Africa Twin all get them :facepalm:

    I really want one of these. Hopefully they actually release them. Surprised no announcement yet for the US market.

    Lower cost and their cast wheels haven't been a problem. They are lighter too.

    It'll be 2025 for the US. That's in line with the 3 year update schedule for the CB500X, as it just had an update in 2022.

    I love the look of this bike. I'd definitely consider one if I were in the market. I like it more than the Versys 300X as well.


    I also like the cast wheels, too. It's perfect for my uses.

    Wife and I are planning to get our endorsements this year and bikes' in Q2 2025 (kitchen remodel will be paid off in April). Hopefully that works out for me on a 2025 release. I was a very happy man when my wife, out of nowhere, said we should get bikes when the kitchen is paid for, lmao.

    Is your life insurance maturing? She might have "plans" for you. Lol

    I get that they probably won't be a problem for 99% of people. The fact that they put them on the other 3 offerings is baffling. ADV bikes need spoked wheels.
