This bike is an excellent bike, but not for beginners
This bike is a strong runner.
The only problem that I have seen is cosmetic. The seat is worn and the seam is starting to let go, but for a bike that is 22 years old, I am happy with it.
I am also looking at replacing the shock seals this year, one is starting to leak. I believe it is time to check all seals, since they could be original.
Overall the bike is in good reasonable condition for its age.
It is FAST and very quick on the start. It handles extremely well and is comfortable to ride. I find it more comfortable the the V-Star.
I just purchased a second Maxim-X yesterday to keep around for parts, since they are so rare to find.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
