Don’t let anyone tell you that you need to ride to the tip of South America or across the Sahara to have a great motorcycle adventure. Adventure can be right in your own back yard—at least if you have the right bike. And one of your best choices is a Honda CB500X. First, it’s rightsized, not too heavy or wide. Next, it has legit adventure-bike styling, and an upright seating position. Its twin-cylinder engine is a spectacular choice for all kinds of riding, and it returns some pretty impressive fuel efficiency too. And finally, there’s its attractive price. Anti-lock brakes are standard, and so is a Pearl Organic Green paint scheme.
