Getting off the beaten path doesn’t have to be a hassle proves Honda with its affordable and surprisingly capable CB500X ($6,799). The CB500X splits the difference in terms of physical size, and performance between standard entry-level and mid-sized motorcycles. Released for the 2013 model year, today’s CB500X evolves into a versatile bike that blends the best features of an upright around-town commuter and a light-duty adventure rig. In this week’s MC Commute, we take you for a ride on the CB500X. Tune-in and see what it’s like to ride.
