Piaggio X-9 Feedback
There is Piaggio X-9 for sale near me at what appears to be a good price but I don't know much about them. Any insights would be helpful.

Our local dealer bought several NOS 2007 X-9s from Piaggio and is selling them for $2999 with factory warranty. They have very few miles on them...15 or so...so they were probably demos which were returned to Piaggio:
Here is a link to an X-9 website out of the UK which might help you:
It looks like X-9s sometimes have a problem with the digital dash and with voltage regulators.
I believe the X-9 uses the same engine as in my BV500. It's a pretty good engine...it's mostly other stuff that has been problematic...I bought my BV500 NOS also and in less than 2000 miles, I've gone through three speedometers/odometers, so I wouldn't be overly surprised that a fancy digital dash by Piaggio on the X-9 might also be problematic.
Good luck with your decision...

The 125 leader engine is bulletproof but a bit low on power at 15hp and
revs a lot, which isn't the right "character" for the X9, the 180 didn't have any
issues as far as I know either, the 200 leader was known to mix up fuel and oil
sometimes but not as often as the 500 if it's old (you're basically safe after 2006
but need to keep an eye on the oil level and change it often).
The 250cc quasar is the best choice out there with virtually no issues.
The 500cc EVO comes with a few extra goodies like intercom and electric
Build quality is mediocre, the plastics rattle and go gray, and the scooter
handles like a barge, but is very comfy.
Ok I'm out.
