Hi,

I'm new to the forum, and I just purchased a 2014 x2 550 EPS. Overall I love the machine so far, but I have one question: In comparison to a 2011 touring 500 H.O. i've driven, the X2 has much less acceleration when you hit the throttle. It's a very smooth feel, not as jumpy (which I like), but it feels a little sluggish. Is this normal? For a top speed, I can get it up to 60, but once it hit's 50 it really takes a while to get there. It works fine for what I need it for, but I want to make sure it's running properly.

The 550's are slower than a 500.

Even though they have 42hp as opposed to 34 in the 500. The cvt in the 550 is garbage for putting hp to the ground.
