Good find. I just spent the better of an hour and half watching the 500r, 500f, and NC700x videos. I was most interested in the 500 to 700 comparisons. If Honda hadn't come out with the 500's I'd be riding a Suzuki DL-650 now. I sat on a NC700x but never test rode one. It's not my style of riding.
I'm going with the 500x as a long distance tourer. After looking at the 500r yesterday, I might be buying both. The 500r would replace my old worn out 2003 Ninja 250 with 41,000 hard miles (65,000 kms).
