Suzuki AN 650 ABS

So I was surprised to read about the mentioned in this thread. that this was a thread thought would compare the AN650 with other including the Aprillia.

For what worth, I just returned a 9 week holiday/vacation to Thailand and NZ. I 7 weeks riding a CB500X in NW doing the Golden Triangle, Nan, Mae Hong Son loops and plenty of trail and ‘well’ that would have most other road to bits, including my maxi’s, and more.

Did 15000km on the CB500X and it.

What a bike, revy lively, spirited, ABS as standard, economical, corners very and so much bike for the money The transmission was so buttery smooth, I can see why it be ideal for learner riders et al. it has 6 gears, I often found searching for the next gear up in the the lack of a gear indicator have helped in this

The dash display though have a lot of info, fuel on the fly, average over two trip meters, clock, LCD rev as a bar graph at the top and more. I liked there are loads of accessories for the from a great range of guards, heated grips, protectors, and a full suite of accessories, and one can fit a centre stand. The I rode had everything except for any lamps though there was a and room for them on the front top bars, the bike had two sets of one pair mounted low for the crank and another pair mounted for the top fairing etc.

In my mind the CB500X would the perfect platform for a RTW rig one up. I also a Kawaski Versys KLE650 to with the CB500X, and I was happy to get on the CB500X. But YMMV, as did a mates, he the Verses over the CB500X, he felt lacked the power.

I rode a Honda PCX150 for a of days while in Thailand, and was a fun scoot.

No, can’t compare it to any of my but I did like the auto cut out function for the I forget the pneumonic that named that feature. to say when the scoot rolls to a there are a bunch of sensors to wheel movement and throttle that if the scoot or throttle moved, the engine shuts until the throttle is blipped, and the fires back into

Clever way to save fuel use stopped/stationery. The only downside is the headlight should be able to off but leaving a park and rear on when using the feature is activated by a toggle switch on the RHS

At the end of the trip, I almost bought a new with the intent to ride it to mainland China where lived and worked for the last years.

What stopped me?

I have five motorcycles two maxi’s) in the garage already, one little used Suzuki and there’s no more space. and the fact that I was unsure how get on trying to bring in a CB500X in Thailand though so the ASEAN is seemingly starting to pay dividends for Thailand and India manufactured imported into mainland [read: decreased taxes and compared with bikes elsewhere]).

Oh, then I flew to NZ for two weeks to up with some friends and ride my Burgman 650 Executive then found myself that for a new 2014 Burgman then riding it back to the Hawkes Bay from Auckland, two days to enjoy it though I flew back to China. in itself was a 36 marathon, not worth here though.

Loads of which I won’t be posting as BUSA requires the photos to be elsewhere rather than uploaded like other forums, so I’ll be posting my RR on the of mychinamoto, advrider, supertenere and

As for the comment about CB500X not suitable for offroad. sure the 17 end isn’t ideal, but we (mate and I) the CB500X’s on plenty of loose 4×4 only tracks and in between including some access tracks into fields, as we attempted to find over land mountain not sign posted or otherwise found. Aside from a diameter front wheel, the thing needing changing is the tyres for a more offroad (in Thailand).

Came across some who’d done just One was riding a red CB500X with a 80/20 offroad set of knobblies, and the team that is riding that have had KTM 690 front and ends fitted for the Honda The CB500X in red looks real IMO. The white and matt are the more common in Thailand.

Yep, got photos of all of that but be up on the other forums soon.

as I’ve written before, if a manufacturer would make a maxi scoot with ADV — I’d be in with a

Shiny side up.
