my dealer was pretty spot on with the arrival of there CB1100..
I skimmed this forum, so forgive me if someone covered this already, but I see a dealer is listing MSRP at $5,799 base for the CB500X and another $500 for ABS model. Of course, in the blog replies below, they state that Honda has not supplied an MSRP. So, I guess the "MSRP" is really more of a "DSRP" ;-)
I think I would bite at $6,299 for ABS. I think a leftover 2012 wee strom at $7k is a better value, but with a 29" inseam, I wasn't confident enough with the height/weight of the wee.
Can't wait to straddle/ride one of these!
I would hope. That's $200 less than a non-ABS, carb'ed, single-cyl, tubes in the wheels, bias-ply tired, five-speed, antediluvian-technology KLR. Whether the CB500X ABS is $6300, $6500, or $6700, it will be the bargain bike of the decade.
I saw the R and F today; as most reviews have said, you don't really notice that they are built to a price.
I also picked up some Honda brochures; they must be confident about the mpg, because they claim a 285-mile range for the X.
nice! 285 is about what i get comfortable on my Civic.. with a lot more gallons.. hahaa.
Some new CB500X, nicely farkled, pics:
aftermarket usd forks? me like
I would gladly pay a bit more for a higher-spec 500x.
Any better? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Blq--Bgsyrw
sounds better, but the pics, where are the pics of that sound maker?
The stock pipe does not sound bad to me....
It's not a X but suppose its pretty the same...
Again not a X but... take a look...
I talked to Kevin at Southern powersports today, they were the ones with the website who said that their Honda rep told them the msrp was going to be $5,799 on the CB500x. Kevin said just today he was told by American Honda the msrp wound be $5,999 for the base model. Oh well, I still want one with the ABS.
I'm ok with that. My dealer got an R in today. Going to look at it tomorrow just because.
Confirmed here: http://powersports.honda.com/2013/cb500x/options.aspx
$5,999 for non-ABS
$6,499 for ABS
Anyone hear rumors of the color(s) for ABS model in US? Honda's site still leaves us guessing.
Sure hope it's black, my second choice would be the red. But if the ABS model was only offered in white, I might have to think about the non-ABS model.
Want. What's the down payment on $6k gonna look like?
