Just plowed through this whole thread from the first post onward. I think the 500x and its siblings are going to be winners for Honda. Bringing any number of sales to those with 250s who want a bit larger machine. The ergos will be good on all three of them, with the x having the most relaxed riding position. It will be interesting to see where Honda prices the x, it is strange they didn't announce it at the same time as the other two 500s. I've seen and sat on all of the 500s and the 700x at the Cleveland show, they all seem like winners. If I was in the market for a new bike, I'd wait for some tests and to see what mpg and range is achievable on them. There aren't many choices from the Asians in midrange machines for the U.S. market, nice to see Honda introducing them here.
