Good Morning Everyone,
As you many of you saw from one on of my previous posts, my 400 was totaled in an accident. I was looking to do my MC license but the cost is around 2000 Euro to get and I don't feel like spending that much money to get one. After reading about the new 500hpe, I am thinking of ordering/purchasing one next year in February. For those of you that have test ridden one, what is your perception of it? I've watched a few videos online, but they are all in French and mine is really rusty from my high school days. I would be looking to purchase the sport model and get a top case and for sure, heated grips. Side cases don't seem to be needed, as I never had them for my 400 and never needed them. The increase in HP and from what I've read, people seem to like the fact that there is more power, increase in compression thereby making the motor more responsive, and a better saddle. Price is not really a big factor as I am able to take the tax off the vehicle at time of purchase, saving me about 2 grand on the purchase. I really enjoyed the 400 and the fact it could be driven on a car license.
Thanks for any information that you can offer.
