    I have a Benelli TRK502X. Most of the bad reviews were of the TRK502. The X has all the issues sorted and it is a great bike, very willing motor and really comfortable for long distances. The bike comes fully kitted and the price includes the luggage boxes. The X is the one with spoke wheels and a 19' front wheel. It has different gearing to the normal 502 and also comes with a centre stand and improved brakes, some of the criticisms of the normal 502.

    I am doing long rides on mine and love it to bits.

    I was on Sunday in several bike shops to see whats new and saw the CoLove ZY500X in reality.
    From first impression without riding it I can say following:
    a) The welding seams I saw at the frame are surprisingly clean and even
    b) The screws all over the bike appeared at higher standard than the usual military greenish crap
    c) the coating appeared smooth and even from optical impression
    d) the AL cast parts looked professional
    e) the windshield is made quite material with uneven edges. The fixation is improvable.

    All in all it was a positive first impression.

    Now I am looking forward to the real riders review.
    If that also shows positive results on long run I believe that bike might become popular.

    The only thing I wonder is when BMW will sue the manufacturer for stealing copying the design.

    For what it's worth
    for the money ,HP, and KG
    My money is on the Cfmoto 650 MT
    With over 48.000 km cover with riding all over China on the MT.
    IMO it ticks a lot of box's.

    the CF 650 MT is for sure an attractive bike and quite well built from what I saw in the shop.
    But it has a bit more street orientation which is for long travel very suitable.
    ... and when I read 48k km without major trouble ... then that sounds reliable to me.

    I am personally a fan of a 21/18 wheel setup. My GS has 19/17 which is also ok, but honestly I prefer the slim tire version of an Enduro bike.
    So my SWM makes now more mileage than the GS. .... and it wheelies better

    @prince: can you find other wheels for the MT, e.g. 19" front or even a 21/18 setup?
