WHY THE HONDA CB500X ?
At Rally-Raid Products, we believe that a genuine adventure bike ought to flatter the rider, not intimidate them. When the going gets tough, a physically large and heavy motorcycle can quickly become a liability. Power, size and complex cutting-edge electronics have their place, but are rarely a substitute for confidence and control.
With a standard specification that includes a useful 250 mile fuel-range, a compact fairing, plenty of luggage capacity and low maintenance; the twin-cylinder Honda CB500X is already an excellent all-rounder at a very affordable price. At only ~150kg dry weight and xxcm seat height the CB500X allows you to tackle hard adventure with confidence.
WHAT DOES THE CB500X ADVENTURE INVOLVE?
Ensuring we retained all these key attributes as part of our Adventure conversion, Rally Raid Products and Tractive have comprehensively re-engineered the front and rear suspension to offer adjustable damping and longer travel, with a corresponding increase in ground-clearance. Remote preload adjustment is avaliable on all tractive shocks, allowing 10mm of preload adjustment to the rider.
Together with our unique heavy-duty spoked wheel-sets in both 19" and 17" front wheel we have significantly enhanced the off-road and dirt-trail capability of the standard machine. Wheel upgrade kits are now avaliable in bot tubed and tubless options, proudly supported by www.bartubeless.it
Completing our core Adventure package are a range of associated upgrade components and accessories that allow you to tailor the machine to your exact preference – including substantial engine protection and a range of soft-luggage mounting options - and all of which have been carefully designed to retain OEM levels of fit and finish. The result is a genuinely all-road capable, and overland travel-ready machine.
