I'm more familiar with thumpers, where comfortable cruise is an oxymoron.. :)

A KLR has 36 hp measured on a dyno at the rear wheel. The factory spec number, measured at the crank, is 42 hp.

Tyres are - and this is a guess - more likely to be something like Bridgestone BT45, rather than 23. Less cost, in other words.

So, 63 mpg USA gallons. It's just an estimate, they rate the CBR250R at 77 USA-MPG and I'm getting 50-51 mpg most days.

I've got the BT45's on my CBR250X(lifted an inch, standard bars, only X model made), good little tire.

Anyone know how much ground clearance does this have?

Any dual sport tyre options in this bike's tyre size?

I have to admit something about this bike trips my trigger, but I can't look at it without seeing the little chicken hawk from the old Fogg Horn Legg Horn cartoons. Not a bad thing just an observation.

I hear myself saying "I'll be back later, me and the chicken hawk are going hunting"

Wish it came in that red like the CB 1100 it looks sweet in the pictures.

This CB500X has potential. I plan to check it out. it looks like it could be a fun runabout/carver. I wonder what volume the dealers have ordered - or will order, & what the showroom availability might actually be...

My dealer can place orders next month for March delivery. Unless of course Honda delays things like they did with the NC700X. Still, what he told me about ordering and availability was true.
