Honda CB500x
Unbelievably Good Suspension &
Ridiculously Low Fuel Consumption

The Honda CB500x is a bike that is hard to find fault with. From its unbeatable suspension to its low fuel consumption, it is a bike that has it all. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the positives and negatives of the Honda CB500x.

Positives 👍🏻

Suspension:

The Honda CB500x’s suspension is one of the standout features of this bike. It is unbelievably good and makes riding on bumpy roads a breeze. The adjustable suspension also allows riders to customize the bike’s handling to their individual preferences, making it even more comfortable to ride.

Fuel Consumption:

Another positive feature of the Honda CB500x is its ridiculously low fuel consumption. With a consumption rate as little as 3.3 liters per 100 kilometers, this bike is incredibly efficient. Compared to other bikes in its category, the Honda CB500x stands out as the clear winner in terms of fuel consumption.

Autonomy:

The Honda CB500x has a 17-liter fuel tank, which gives you a high amount of autonomy. With such a low fuel consumption rate, this bike can take you on long rides without having to worry about refueling frequently.

Comfort:

The Honda CB500x is much more comfortable to ride outside the cities at higher speeds. Its comfortable seat and adjustable suspension make long rides enjoyable and stress-free.

Brakes:

The brakes on the Honda CB500x feel very good and provide a sense of confidence and safety while riding.

Digital Display:

The Honda CB500x comes equipped with a digital display that shows all the necessary information needed for a safe and enjoyable ride.

Passenger Weight:

The Honda CB500x can accommodate much higher passenger weight than any scooters. With a total passenger weight of 230kg, the suspension still had plenty of room.

Safety Feature:

The Honda CB500x has an embedded safety feature that blinks both indicator lights when you brake hard, alerting drivers coming from behind.

Quality:

Being a Honda bike, the quality is there. The Honda CB500x is built to last and provides a sense of reliability and durability that is hard to find in other bikes.

Negatives 👎🏻

There are barely any negatives with the Honda CB500x. After riding 500km with it, we like it more every day. The only negative is that it is the most expensive bike in its category compared to the Benelli TRK and Voge 500DS. However, the fuel efficiency and the maintenance required will make up for it in the long run. 

Conclusion

The Honda CB500x is a bike that ticks all the boxes. With its unbeatable suspension, low fuel consumption, comfortable seat, and safety features, it is hard to find fault with this bike. While it may be the most expensive bike in its category, the fuel efficiency and quality of the bike make up for it in the long run. If you are visiting Chania, you have an A2 or A licence and you are planning to explore outside the City centre, definitely go for this one.
