Down payment...

Dunno. What do you want for a monthly payment, and how much could you afford up-front? And how much of a monthly payment would your credit score/current debt to income ratio support?

My local credit union is offering 2.74% for a 60 month term, up to 110% of the bike's value - so no down payment required.

Of course, you'd have to be able to swing the monthly payments!

My trusty HP12c calculator is telling me my monthly payments would be:

$17.85 per thousand for 2.74% for 60 months.
Or $107.12/month for $6,000
Or $124.97/month for $7,000

Now, I just need to convince the wife that we NEED a CB500X

Interesting. I want the white but I know it won't come here till next year. Pretty sure the abs will be the red.

The honda web site does not have a picture of the abs model, but when you go to the spec sheet for the abs 500x, it does say the color is matte black metallic.

My wife is already convinced that I need CB500x w/ABS, just sold my 750 shadow this last weekend, and 2 dealers are suppose to give me a out the door price sometime today. I have great credit, and I am looking to get the 3.99% from honda for 4 years (my credit union does good on cars, but not motorcycles) and if I finance $2658, my payment should be $60 even for 4 years.

So I am also excited about this bike, but for a reason I haven't noticed anyone else mention it, I'm SHORT. I currently ride a Honda 230L also because I'm short, and really like it. The only downfall of the 230L is going more than 70 miles, thin seat+65 max mph = sore bum. Now mind you I will ride for hours off-road, but that is different. I don't intend on riding the CB 500x on 10 day plus adventures, but more like several weekend trips. My commute consists of 15 miles of trail, so I will probably keep riding the 230l for that. Actually the trail is an old rail bed, so I would prbably run it sometimes.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to wether the ABS will be able to be switched off or not? I feel like for loose surfaces, ABS isn't a good idea

There's usually a fuse you can pull, and at least on my bike (2012 DL 650) the ABS is quite a bit better than me on loose stuff.

The only catch is if you are going to fast and try and pull up quickly on a really loose surface you'll have issues with ABS on - just pointing out - in my experience, I have issues with ABS OFF in those circumstances as well

In other words, don't worry about disabling it until you've actually tested it ?.

Is this an off-road bike?? Doesnīt look like one, thatīs for sure!

Besides, modern ABS systems work just fine even for mild off-road (.. and thatīs about all this bike can do outside the tarmac Iīd say). For any kind of road, thereīs no question, itīs a plus.

But if you absolutely must get rid of it, then taking the fuse off should do the trick. Just remember to put it back on at least occasionally, so the system wonīt get jammed.

This thread is only 21 pages long...go back and read it from the beginning.

Honda has ALWAYS said that this is an "adventure LOOK" motorcycle. It is a streetbike with ADV body work; nothing more, nothing less.

Yamaha's S-10 has the best ABS in the world today. Everyone insisted that it needed to be "switchable" when the bike first came out. In fact, it doesn't. It just plain works, on-road and off-road. The debate is over. It sets the new standard; everyone else is still catching up, but it will happen.

Thank you all for the replies. I know it's just a look of an adventure bike, and that's fine because it will just be a daily commuter for me. But I still do get curious about dirt trails and I was concerned about the safety of an abs system on one. I think it sounds to me that going with abs makes sense!

Well dealer 1 was around $7100 total price for the CB500x with ABS out the door, fee's, plates, sales tax, everything. Dealer 2 total price out the door was $6811.14, which I only own $6711.14, since I put down $100 The bike was $6299, and Michigan sales tax was $383.64. So I guess $128.50 for doc, title, and plate transfer is not to bad.

Congratulations! I was in the same boat about a year ago waiting on the NC700X to come in. At least I knew I was first in line.

Alright it has been mentioned that the CB 500X just has the looks of an adventure bike, so I got to thinking what makes an adventure bike? Is it a durability issue, suspension travel, or ground clearence? So I got some specs from the KLR, GS, and CB. Clearly there is a lack of suspension and ground clearence, but everything else is right in there. The CB is only a 500, but I think we are still talking apples to apples. For me personally I am a honda guy, and would be riding on the road 85% of the time (oh and I'm short) so I will most likely be buying this bike.

KLR 650 BMW 650 CB 500X
front suspension travel 7.9in 6.7in 5.5in
rear suspension travel 7.3in 6.5in 4.7in

ground clearence 8.3in 8.6? 6.6?

weight 432lbs 423lbs 430lbs

fuel capacity 6.1 gal 3.7gal 4.5gal

price $6500 $7850 $6000

Alright chew on this gentlemen (and ladies)
