Thump, I totally get what you're saying about the performance. But the thing is, I am almost certain that 90% of Street owners (and indeed the Streets intended target market) are people who have...

Well the time has come when I also say goodbye to my lovely 500Ö
I am one of the older members here, joining a few weeks before I picked up my new CB500F in the summer of 2013. Iíve ridden my bike...

Yes, that should work no problems. Do it in second gear, it'll be a bit easier.

That's quite unlikely, since the engine was developed to sit right at the A2 license limit (47HP). I'm betting that the engine remains unchanged.

I think it looks great. I wonder if they are updating the F and X models also? Since they are the same platform, it would make sense. A nice touch that they listened to customers and adding hinged...

OP!


there's absolutely no way that there is a connection between the recall and your mileage. One was for fuel pump that can come loose and the other was a starter switch.

I can also attest that the computer on the bike is waay off. By that I mean it shows much worse mileage (i.e. higher fuel consumption) than actual. So to the person who said they would have run out...

Mate, the triple has a better power-to-weight ratio than a Lamborghini Aventador. I think you won't quickly get bored of that. At this level it's much more about passion. If you want to watch mileage...

Hey Rumble... You've been gone from the forum so long I thought you moved on long ago! Not many of us here from the original, summer of 2013 crew now :) Almost everyone moved on by now.

I'm not sure your numbers are correct rnevers. The 650F is much closer in power output to the ninja 650 and fz6r than any of the 600 supersports. People compare it with those two because they are...

I've just returned from an amazing nine-day trip across the Alps with my CB500F. It was an incredible journey, and I thought I'd share a few thoughts about the experience and a few pictures.
