Newish guy, looking for an MT500

Post by Callmemack » Tue Jan 07, 2020 7:43 pm

Hi guys I'm mack, based in Kent and looking for an adventure bike, cards on the table I'm test riding A RE Himilayan in a few weeks but am thinking from experience when I was in the army the Mt350 was OK but I liked the 500 beter and have seen that with electric and kick start this can be a very usable bit of kit, so my plan is to do the test ride then view an mt500 and make my decision then.

Welcome to the forum, an MT350 with a Sportax conversion to 405 might be a good option for you
Electric and kick
Newer wiring loom, 3 phase as standard
Disc brakes
I can't recall the power output but I think the 405 generates more power than a standard 500
