In these times, the XJ700 X is still an awesomely rare muscle bike that will surprise anyone!
Carburators were out of sync.
These bikes are very impressive for the age and year. Very rare as well
My Maxim X makes good power (even when riding two up), and is surprisingly comfortable on longer trips.
The bike is quick in the lower gears, and insanely faster when the tach starts going past 7000rpms!
A well taken care of or redone Maxim X will not disappoint anyone, even if you are used to bigger and faster bikes like I am.
I'd say it keeps up well with the current line of 600cc (except in areas of top speed) sportbikes, and out performs most of the "new" cruisers with double its dispacement.
I'll be hard pressed to sell my X any time soon!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
