That's because they haven't been manufactured in over 10 years everything is extremely scarce for the x18 and x22 most of them have had a pretty hard life or have been parted out the plastics and swing arm are worth more apart than what the bike costs new.

The websites that have them posted up use bait and switch tactics trying to lure in their unsuspecting victims with those awesome bikes that are no longer manufactured then get them switched into the bikes that they do have which aren't much...

Oh man that sucks :mad::mad:

I did think a brand new x18 going for $999 was cheap as hell.. [sigh]

Thanks for saving me getting scammed 👍

I hear ya, there was just something about the x18 that just makes me drool, probably the fact that I would never have been allowed one as a kid. I do love the idea of a grom though.

Shipping an X18 to Europe????? It would cost $1,000 alone to package and ship it, customs and on & on, do not want to deal with that, lol. I have one in real good shape with lots of mods.

Looks amazing honestly would have paid up to 1000 for shipping without a doubt.

Plastics a full set without cracks are worth $850 if the finish is still clean they're worth 1000$

Like you, when I saw it, I fell in love, its the lightest fastest X bike. I got a 125cc kit, from 52.4 to 54mm from 107cc to 114cc, but it has a high top piston, that's the kicker, plus I have the big valve 110cc head, 23/25 instead of the E22 20/23 valve. has a 25mm dirt bike carb on a swivel. Has hp CDI & coil. $190 hp exhaust with alum glass pack muffler. Oil cooler for running wide open. The pic on the rack, I put a real shock on it, 750lb BMX dirt bike 6" , but had to make a bracket to let it extend 1" longer than stock. Have a 28 tooth billet alum PBU rear sprocket with 14 tooth front, it moves out pretty good. If you look I also cut the lower body for more air and cut down the windshield also to keep my helmet off of it. I don't even use first gear, lol.

I found an x6 for sale.. in scotland. If i had a car or van id probably have offered them 300 for it (they want 450) although.. im pretty sure i could technically get It towed for much cheaper than getting in sent as a parcel 😋
