Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Honda's half-litre ADV bike has slightly better suspension than the rest of the 500 series. It's still aimed at street use, though, but a pricey aftermarket kit can allow some measure of off-road use as well. If you're looking for a street-biased adventure tourer, and you're on a tight budget, it's worth giving this machine a look.
