Does anybody have 2005 ninja x2 or x3 because on the the pic, they look big(like a 80cc 2 stroke dirt bike). Is it as big as it looks in the pic or is like the lil ones they got that you can find at any autozone? click me
that looks like the X2 to me - they are called a MID BIKE and they are only available in a 49cc engine size - they are actually not as fast as their smaller pocket bike cousins - i think they all use a CVT (constant velocity transmission) - i think that's what it stands for
and not the centrifugal clutch.
those bikes are quite a bit bigger than a pocket bike and can also be raced in sanctioned events - not sure what the class is called
however, if you look them over, i believe you could make them roadworthy with just the simple addition of mirrors (depends on the rear light configuration of course)
I think (85% sure) they are the same size as the Honda NSR50R(i'd post a link but Honda site is down for maintenance). IMHO, I like the NSR50R better , you should watch the video they have for the NSR50R -vs- DREAM 50R(old school) and you'll know what i mean. but.... price-wise, AUTOZONE is way cheaper! add about $2-3 more G's to the NSR50R's price and you got yourself a "Street-Legal" 600.
They look more comfy than the small ones(especially since im a big boi)
they may be bigger and fit better - but the fun factor really kicks in with the extra speed of the smaller bikes - the larger bikes top out at about 27MPH the smaller bikes top out around 35MPH, i am working on getting a small bike that will do about 46MPH and i currently have a small bike that should pull 51 MPH!
and we all know that 2 wheel fun is mostly about the speed!
I have the X5's coming in next week as long as customs doesn't have a problem with them, lol, like they always do!
Matt, I am addicted to speed too, where do you guys race?
There're a few Matt's on this board..but if you're referring to me, yeah, Im all about the speed, as are many others around here..as far as where I race..pretty much wherever I can get away with it safely?
