    Low Seat Option anyone ?

    As part of their accessories list Honda are also offering a low seat option for those who are vertically challenged  :038:

    It's apparently 20mm lower and features the same design as the standard seat.

    It'll set you back £135 of your hard earned cash...

    At a preview I sat on the standard seat. It was surprisingly fine but nevertheless I ordered the low seat.

    Did you have a low seat on your CB500X ?  :002:

     No, it's the standard seat. But it's a 2017 CB500X wich means a seat hight of 810 mm (almost 32 inches) on a wider saddle.

    Hi, have you received your new bike yet?
    Also, what colour did you go for ?

    I’ve ordered the white colour option which has gold wheels and blue seat, I also ordered the lower seat, however I’ve just learned from my Honda dealer the lower seat is only available in black 😫 !

    I ordered the black one. It arrived at my dealer on friday. In the next week they will put all my extras on it an will do the vehicle registration. Unfortunenately the front side pipe isn´t delivered yet to my dealer so they can´t install all my options...


    ... still naked, even without a windscreen... I have to decide which one (small or tall) I will use or try first. It depends on how in combination with my low seat but I didn't had a "seat check" yet
