The aftermarket should be able to remedy that.

Dealers are hardly the last word on delivery predictions, but my dealer is saying May or June for the R and F models, Aug or later for the X.

If it makes you feel any better, a local dealer told me the X should be shipping July 2013.

Possible MSRP?

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" ;-)

http://www.hondaofchattanoogablog.co...anooga-TN.html

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.
