(Just noticed on the Honda web site, the new 250L is priced $500 less than the ol' air cooled 230L. Hmmmm.)
What I noticed on the Honda site for 2013 is that they have turned adventure bike into a marketing slogan for errand runners. There is no way in hell the 700X or 500X are even the slightest bit offroad capable. Unless your definition of offf-road is merely off-pavement and even that is a stretch.

Thank you Honda for trying to convince us that two wheeled Civics are adventure bikes. I don't care that Honda has decided that cheap UJM's are the future and I hope they sell like Happy Meals. After all, we can't have too many people on two wheels. But, for the love of God, please call them what they are: commuter bikes.
