CB500X or Versys 300X

Post by Laoch » Thu Aug 24, 2017 6:39 pm

CB500X or Versys 300X -------for commuting, back roads, gravel/dirt roads, light off-roading, light touring, light ADV stuff.

Discuss.

If it was me I would do the CB since you can go nuts with the rally raid setup.

CB500X. You'll run out of steam on that 300X really quickly.

Bigger is usually better. I suspect the 300 will tach very high, not something I'm used to. The Honda has cast wheels with tubeless tires, both 17". Not good. The RR kit is nice, but $$$.

It's got a clutch and six gears. Everything is a GS clone these days. :shrug:
Underneath is a Honda dohc parallel-Twin and a 4.3 gallon tank. I need to ride the paved roads (and gravel) a little more.

Now, I need to order some farkles.
