I've been eyeing the Cb500x for awhile, along with the RR progression, as a compliment to my 350 exc. I've past 130 hours and my valves haven't moved, just tires, oil, fluids, normal stuff and it's a...

KTM has won it since 2001 on a 660, a 950, 690 and a 450. Since the switch in displacement only KTM has won. Before 2001 it was BMW twice and Perfecthansel's streak on the Yamaha.

I'm pretty sure he dropped it in a creek on the Hellas as well. It's too heavy for my taste, but it's far more capable than any other japan offering. Fewer cc's and a diet and we've got a winner....

Well , the Tenere did just compete in both the Hellas Rally and the Africa ECo race so I would say despite it's weight it's probably the most capable of Japan's offerings, certainly more than the DL.
