Honda CB500X Adventure Tourer

Honda CB500X Adventure Tourer

Released in April 2013. This is Honda’s new mid-range answer to touring here in Northern Thailand. This is the bike of choice for both Duncan and Jeff when participating on guided tours and we can safely say that they are the perfect bike for a multi-day trip around this beautiful area. Comfortable, easy handling and with a surprisingly “peppy” engine, they are a pleasure to ride.

One proviso: From the specs you can see that peak horsepower is not what this bike is all about. Don’t get us wrong, it’ll get up and boogie but if you are planning a two-up trip and your combined weight is more than about 160 – 170KG then we’d recommend to consider one of the bigger capacity machines as otherwise you will be working the gearbox a bit more than you might like to.
