Well, I have had my 52 plate X9 - 500 for 18 months now, paid £1295 from a dealer. Apart form brake pads and tyres, I have not had to spend any other money on it. It lives outside and has NEVER let me down. Starts on the button first time, and it lovely to ride. Used for commuting through heavy traffic and is a joy when negotiating traffic. Longer high speed rides are a little more uncomfortable - could probs do with a flip screen,as I am quite tall - have looked on the web but am struggling to find one.Centre Stand has an intemittent fault - but rarely need to use it so have not bothered to put right. All in all - very enjoyable,cheap transport that can make a few heads turn as I fly away from the lights - will hang on to it!!
