Not all that's is all crack up to be

After visiting my local sunstate motorcycle dealership to try out the new honda rebel cmx500 i was rather surprised at just how heavy this bike really is. Sadly i was unable to lift this bike of its side stand. I weigh all of 55kgs and stand all of 145cms tall. This bike is certainly not suited to the smaller rider. If you are heavier in weight maybe so but not in my case. Don't get me wrong this bike is a looker and i could see myself on long weekend rides if only i could ride the thing. Be warned the only way one is truly ever going to know is to try before you buy and do your homework.

Brilliant ride great handling

The bike is a brilliant learner bike and I have been very happy with how it performs in all conditions. I had test drove the Harley Street 500 and found it under performed in power and only being a 5 speed it didn't offer what was needed for bigger riders. The Cmx 500 offers that cruiser style traditional to a Harley without the name tag attached. I had feedback from a Harley sales person even saying the Cmx 500 is one of the best Lams bike and Harley would have loved to badge it up with Harley on it. Show details

Good cruiser for a new learner

Bought this bike for my son (I have been riding for decades) as his first bike and it is easy to ride and good fun. This is his main transport to uni and part time job. The main complaint is the seat and on long rides this becomes an annoying problem, we are going to change the seat to a better version. I have ridden it as well and I agree with the seat problem. My bike has a gel seat which is way better. Spares for this bike are not expensive as it was dropped and dented the tank which was replaced for approx $300. Show details

AND I THOUGHT THE YAMAHA 250 VIRAGO CRUISER WAS GOOD

This is a great bike, i took the plunge and bought it on its release date in Australia, one of the first in NSW, and i can tell you now what a bike, it won't break any records, but it is a real head turner, everyone asks about it, at the lights, at the car park, it is comfortable and easy to ride, and the grip from the wide front and rear D404 tyres will give you confidence. It will beat most cars from take off at the lights and the fuel return is amazing 248km commuting on 11 lts, smooth gear changes and great brakes all make for a great bike ride and lots of fun.
