In the wake of the Bosch 800, which hit the scene on the back of the 800-series Bosch models, Kyle Vande Bosch has been working to get his 500 model onto the road.
The 500 has been undergoing a major redesign, and will go into production sometime this summer.
The Bosch 500’s name, however, was first used by Bosch in 2013.
The name was dropped from the model name because, according to Kyle, the model was not designed to be a roadster.
The model’s styling has been updated, too, with the addition of new front fenders, a new wheel well, a larger brake rotor, and a new grille.
Kyle says that the redesign is meant to make the 500 a “more stylish” model.
The redesigned model will be more powerful and have an improved handling profile, while the overall styling will be less focused on sporty looks.
“The 600 is still very popular,” he says.
“We’ve been looking for a long time for something that would be better, but it just didn’t happen.
So, I wanted something that was more modern and better for the roadster crowd.”
Kyle hopes to make a 500 roadster available in late 2019, with production expected to begin sometime in 2020.
