A totally new 500 adv bike
Publicly appearing in the UK for the first time, the Voge 500DS will be on display at The Overland Event.
This middle-weight adventure bike sports a 471cc parallel twin engine that produces an A2 licence-friendly 46.7bhp. The Voge brand is new to the UK, but is a subsidiary of Loncin, which began manufacturing motorcycles in 1983 in China and is one of the world's biggest producers. Clearly this bike has more than a passing resemblance to Honda's CB500X so it'll be interesting to see how it compares and we'll do an indepth review after The Event.
As with so many things in the UK at the moment, restricted supply means that we aren't able to provide you with a test-ride fleet, but a dealer network is developing across the country and large stocks of these sub £5000 machines will be available in the autumn.
