The CB500x has been brilliant. I average 80mpg (with 95mpg showing on the computer down the lanes at 35mph}. Just a bit dull, can't really put my finger on it as to why. It can be fast, every box it ticks. I think it's the flaws and a few rough edges that give character. I guess that's what I'm looking for, my old Ducati had it in spades.
