    If it were in the 5K range.......I'd definitely do it.
    I have been following the CFMoto thread on ADV. I hope that bike proves to be a good one.........and that it keeps with the used value of CFMotos :D

    It's out of my price range. It's definitely the CB500X I would want......just not at 7K. At that price, I'd rather wait and see if we get the white/red/blue Transalp and spend a few more grand for that. Twice the HP/TQ with only 20lbs of weight gain.

    It honestly looks like the bastard child of an AT and CB500X. If they had thrown the AT's(or even the 300 Rally's) headlight on it............I honestly think most people would have gone for it over the AT. The more I read/watch about that bike......I really dig it. My opinion :D


    I wouldn't even mind a cement grey. I'm just not a fan of a black bike.

    They definitely missed the mark. It's not a deal breaker for me personally.....but is a dislike.

    SKDA does have some of the "Murica" themed graphics though :D :oldglory:

    This is probably my favorite one.

    I don't know if I would do the flag one. I like America theme without it looking so much like a flag. The splash one I think would outdate itself. The middle one has a timeless look to me.
    That is pretty slick.

    agreed on the splash one it looks cool but can look a bit dated over time. the middle is the cleanest one and will last for a long time id say

    I have no clue why I'm even looking. They haven't even said if we'll get any color changes for 2025.....and then I'd have to see if it's in the budget :rofl: :rofl:

    I saw some kid riding his e-bike this morning on the way to school with his helmet hanging off a handlebar.

    Granted it's an e-bike so a little less serious, but all it takes is one fall. And he was riding on an extremely busy road with lots of intersections.

    guess what I also taped up the lenses with black duct tape

    Just wait and see what the NX500 looks like in the states. You might like it and it'll be cheaper than the TA.
