I think I am about to buy a CVT bike. Primarily, I am looking at the X2 and Inferno 380X. Are there others? Can you help me compare and contrast the various offerings?

Thanks!

Well depends if you want a bike that looks like a real bike or not.
X-1/X-2's Are a redux of a Honda CBR 600 RR. Therefore if you would like to do a scale version of that bike the X-2 will suit you best. The Infero Kinda has a R-1 look but its a stretch.


It mattered to me, may not mean squat to you.... GL with the new bike!

Both bikes use a 49cc engine. Is it the same engine? Is the CVT the same?

Which bike is quicker in acceleration? Top end?


I saw an ad on Ebay that basically said the CVT's are unreliable. Is that true?

How does the performance and feel of a CVT bike compare to a non-CVT bike?


Thanks!!

380. Hands down.
Can you provide some pros and cons of the two bikes?

I saw some knucklehead's add on ebay saying that the cvt has a ruberband that breaks in 2 days.....LOL
We have 30+ hours on, and CVT is still going strong. The "rubberband" is actually a automotive type belt that is really thick and durable.

Consider this though, Not all X-2's come from the same factory or company so even between X's will have small variations.

CVT is a strong unit, no worries :)
Dont have Inferno yet but I will be buying 2 or 3 bikes in the next 60 days....One will be an Inferno.

I have an X2 CVT and love it. I have had very few problems out of the box but, I did take 2 days to strip down the bike and check everything completely like outlined in the FAQ's above. No CVT problems, just minor fixable things. You will have to put some time in to make the bike reliable, tools are required.

Hmm... I don't know when the last time you checked out a CBR600RR... the first models of that were in '03 and the X1/X2 headlights look NOTHING like the RR's... I think the 380x does a good job resembling the RR as well as the R1. i'm not quite a fan of the X1/X2 headlights. :)

CVT or NOT CVT , that is the question .....

Could someone clear up the 380x cvt question. I read it does use a CVT and I read it does not . On another thread , someone said it uses a reduction gear box instead. Which is it?

R1 sells them along with the other mid/super bikes. He said that the Inferno doesn't have a CVT and as you said, has a gear reduction box. He also stated that his stock inferno beats his modded x2.
