It's the same situation here.

There's not too many of them still running around (especially with under
20k miles on the ODO), and sales weren't that good even when it was
available in the shops.

It was a lot more expensive then the BV/Beverly and the X8 (probably
never heard of that one). For the price of a 250 X9, you could get
the 400cc BV and X8 (well almost), and it was a no-brainer for most.

In the 500cc range, it was priced about the same as a Nexus 500
(a very sporty design, with amazing handling and brakes, same engine)
and the Majesty 400, and again, most people would pick the X9 last.

You get the picture..

I always liked this tho:


I think the EVO 500 had some sort of automated center stand too.
Sick stuff.
