As for the motor, if it feels like the Ninja 650, it'll work. If it feels like the F800, I'm out. Somewhere in the middle.... I dunno.
Funny. I hope the 500X motor feels like a small F800GS. That 800 parallel twin rotax is a gem of a motor.
Whenever we are riding, we are an ambassador to our sport

I'd rather be riding!
