Honda CBR 500X

Read 8408 times

The Honda CBR500X offers a great ride especially with pillion passengers and for the twisty roads in Thailand the lightweight aspect of this bike is a definite plus point.  

This is the 'X' version (eXplorer) but other options also include the 'Naked' and standard 'Fairing' version. If this is the type of bike you are looking for maybe take a look also at the Versys or the ER6 of you something smaller and more nimble is required try this.


As with all our tours you have the option to select a choice of ride.
