Owners’ Overall Rating (3

after owning the bike for 5 now i still love it. I’ve it for hooning around, commuting town and a few two up 200+ mile trips with luggage. still slow as you like, but brings a smile to my face. the longest i have ever a single bike, i wish had made one sooner :-)

I’ve bought an FMX650 as a second and I also feel that MCN review is unduly harsh on the If you’re in the market for a supermoto-style then don’t dismiss the FMX at least taking a good at one first.

It may fall short when against the standards of purer, competition-focussed supermotos from the manufacturers, but if you’re not going then there’s something to be for Honda reliability and build when the alternative offerings a reputation for being fragile and maintenance. And that reassuring quality is something that’s quite tangible from the moment you sit on an FMX.

My experience the saddle suggests that for and city riding the FMX delivers all the benefits of the supermoto format: bursts of acceleration, agile from a stance that optimal control, strong brakes, and enough height to you a commanding view. On the down that saddle is very and unforgiving over any distance, but so what? If you want all-round then it’s best to clear of supermotos.

However, for short, intense of riding satisfaction — the licence-shredding speeds — hard to beat. And you can really this thing around. If you up the engine’s power right the FMX delivers strong, immediate that can slingshot it off the line and up to 60. Beyond this it continues to with less urgency to — if you can take the wind-blast!

But show it some curves and it confidence in spades and rewards a riding style, encouraging you to a fairground-ride combination of brisk acceleration, deep braking and extreme lean angles, all an inspiring composure. I also a sports bike, but I’ve that I’m way, way quicker on the FMX in any of tight, twisty, comparatively situation. Horses for courses!

While it’s certainly no switchblade, the FMX’s engine is far in reality than it looks the specification. The bhp figure is irrelevant; matters is the satisfying amount of being churned out. to rev it hard achieves nothing; clutch slipping and short-shifting to within the fat wedge of mid-range makes for perfectly rapid

There’s an endearing quality to the pulses thudding out from the big single, and Honda have managed to make it sound fruity, despite the restrictive, exhaust system (Arrow a full system replacement, it’s expensive). Of course an priority of ownership is to remove the ‘Funmoto’ stickers from the panels – mercifully easy, off to leave no trace.

Those aside, it’s a looking bike, with a presence and nice detailing, not the imposing gold forks and spoked rims. Another feature is the price — it to be widely discounted to well the stated list price.
