Originally launched by Honda as the single cylinder Ascot, this later beautiful liquid cooled V-twin model with 18" wheels really moved the model up the food chain and it eventually morphed into the Shadow cruiser which in our minds was a huge step back. Custom seat and rear cowl, LED lighting, custom exhaust, single colour paint, bar end mirrors,
this bike is one of the lightest 500cc machines

The mono-shock is what makes the CX650 stand apart from the CX500. There are 2 versions of this bike. The 650e (European) was only available in Canada and come with a bikini fairing and 18" wheels front and back making it a mid-size sport touring machine. The GL650 was the touring model with 16" rear wheel and $6200 - $9700 HST Incl 19" front. Both bikes make beautiful café racers but the spirited rider may prefer the 650e.

Yamaha Virago XV500 (qty 1)
Just like his 750cc & 920cc big brothers, the
XV500 has the beautiful lines of a café . The mono-shock opens the rear of the bike up giving it that forward motion look sitting still. Benelli tank, LED lighting, bar-end mirrors, Acewell gauge, lithium ion battery. And, the 500cc insurance rates sure help the cause as well.
