I've been following this thread as well S various others concerning the CB500, and have somehow missed two things:
Where does the CB redline? I rode the NC700x, was put off by the 6500 rev limiter, otherwise a nice bike...
And does it have enough electrical output to run auxiliary lighting, heated grips, etc? Thinking of getting a bike for escort duty, the CB, NC, weestrom, etc all being considered.
