If this is pretty cool, check out 2016 NC750X. It is even cooler.The new updated CB500X for 2016 is pretty cool.
2016 Honda NC700X and CB500X FIRST LOOK Review, Photos | Cycle World: Nice updates for Honda?s friendly everyday adventure-tourers.
But the CB500 doesn't rev like crazy, the opposite in fact, so no fun winding it out...it's called a Honda cb500x and it is a lot of fun.
needs better suspension and the third party extensive off road makeover to be a stock option.
Read the request again. "winds out fine" is not the same as -CB500x winds out just fine - the NC700x is a crock ith a 6200 rpm hard limiter Ridden both - hated the 700 loved the 500
Hitting a 8,500 redline is car like which is understandable as it's bore and stroke are almost square at 67.0x66.8mm, not at all crazy. A real screamer eg, the Ducati 899 has a bore x stroke of 100x57.2Something like a 500 cc V-Twin would be incredibly smooth, rev like crazy and be a blast to wind out!
Sunday Salon: Suzuki T500 ? The Best Bike (Almost) Nobody RemembersSuzuki 750 Triple....
About 90hp. under 400 lbs. scrambler style dualsport. retro styling, no ass up in the air pointing skyward.
given that one of the vstrom's parents is the nuclear banana... some might beg to differ.I guess I've never owned a "crazy revving" bike. And I never take my DL650 much over 8,500 rpms, as that puts the next gear right in it's power curve. An 8,500 red line would be revvy enough for me, given all the bike's other attributes. We're not a crotch rocket crowd here last time I checked...
Low exhaust is a no go for me. Keep it high so I can go where I want to go. Just design the exhaust so everything is a bit "tighter" when put together. For example, some bikes tuck two pipes under the rear fender/luggage rack.
