How does the power compare to the 80's CB1100F?

I'm not paying $10K for a retro bike with less motor.

Saw one in person...looks great.

How heavy are you? Back when I weighed 140lbs my XT350 cruised 80+ indicated on the interstate pretty effortlessly. This was pre gps so no idea on speedo optimism.

I suggest a DR650SE.

If the 54HP at the wheel is true..this means around 60-65 at the crank, coupled with EFI and Honda engineering...no brainer..I want the CB500F as my new commuter.

This is known as "Attaching Tag Not Assigned" and is an arrestable offense in Florida.


I wish we got this bike in the US. I'd strongly consider one. If I find a clean W650 I'll probably buy it.

I really like the idea of the CB500...not so much the CBR250/500. I see bodywork as a pain..and only tolerated on basically a race bike.
