ADVENTURE AND COMMUTE? WE GOT THIS.

2018 Honda CB500X Review on Total Motorcycle:

Big adventure doesn’t always call for a big motorcycle, as many of the most serious two-wheel explorers insist on minimum weight and maximum maneuverability. For these aficionados, it’s hard to beat Honda’s CB500X. Powered by a fuel-injected, 471cc parallel-twin engine, the CB500X offers features like an upright riding position, good wind protection and ample suspension travel, which make it equally adept for adventure or commuting.
