No hijack intended....considered the V7 as a way away from garage time/spares thinking it might see me out for 20 years or more bought new....(i'd be 80 then)
Liked the motor config.....(CX like).....

Havent ridden the Nevada..so no inference that the V7 was better....

Years ago, I had a coworker with a V50 Monza. He had my heart set on a G1000 or an 850T. Then I discovered the CX500.
Glad I did. I can find parts!

Nice looking bike. A CX custom, but built today.

At least the crankshaft runs in the correct direction- parallel to the frame rather than perpendicular to it.

I can't speak to it being a twin seeing as I now ride a double 650 (ST 1300).

Well, it has the right number of cylinders and the engine is in the frame the right way but you'll have to add a radiator before you really feel at home on it ;-)
