Lexmoto Pioneer 500X Euro 5 Overview
It`s time to discover new paths on Lexmoto`s new A2-compatiable adventure tourer.
Instantly broaden your horizons with a machine that can take you anywhere you can point at on a map. Built to effortlessly glide on long distance tours, slice through morning traffic, or tackle the loosest of terrain, the Pioneer 500X is your new one-bike that does it all.
At its heart is a perky 471cc twin cylinder engine and BOSCH ECU that delivers smooth low-end torque when manoeuvring in tight situations or up steep inclines but expect high performance top end power that`ll have you flicking the bike into every S-bend.
Don`t just sit on the bike, sit in it. With a seat height of 820mm that cradles you comfortably between the 20L tank and pillion seat; you`ll feel secure at any speed, on any terrain. Couple that with the multi-adjustable KYB front & rear suspension and tubeless Metzeler Cross-tourer tyres that wrap the off-road focused spoked rims, and you have yourself an extremely capable machine.
Braking performance is top-tier thanks to Nissin`s dual 298mm floating front discs and two-piston calliper front setup, with a single 240mm floating disc and single calliper to bring up the rear. Choose how you want the bike to stop with the adjustable ABS, allowing you to disconnect the rear ABS for when you need that extra feel at the back wheel.
With all that power comes great responsibility – it`s down to you to set your riding mode, Safe or Sport. We recommend using the Safe mode when riding at slower speeds, on loose gravel, or in the rain. This alters the throttle and fuelling response to be softer and prevent loss of traction through the tyres onto the road surface. Find yourself on an open B-road or fast flowing motorway traffic then it`s time to engage Sport mode for added performance.
The Pioneer comes packed full of features that you should expect on any high-end adventure motorcycle with a USB and 12v charging port, adjustable front screen, hand guards, centre stand, grab rail and luggage rack, crash protection, aluminium bash plate and swingarm, LED lighting all-round, and a digital/analogue display unit.
