There are a few motorcycles that would work beautifully in India and the Honda CB500X resides close to the top of that list. In a world of gigantic and extremely powerful adventure bikes that take skill to master, the CB500X is a breath of fresh air. This adventure bike uses a 471cc parallel twin engine that produces 47PS and 43Nm. Those aren’t eye-opening figures but give the CB500X an excellent, unstressed turn of speed. We rode the CB500X in New Zealand last year, and Shumi came back convinced that Honda should sell this motorcycle in India. So far that hasn’t happened but Honda did show off a rather interesting CX-02 concept at the 2016 Auto Expo that looks close to production ready and could borrow the engine from the CB500X.
