My (older) 500X turns at low speed just as well as my smaller bike and the NX250 that was my previous street bike. There isn't any "heaviness" in the steering. It sounds like the bike you rode had ~15 psi in the front tire.
You have to remember that the rake on the 500X is more than on the 500R because of the extra inch of front shock movement. For anyone used to riding enduros, the bike is fine.
