I was a bit worried about the CVT as well and the timing chain actually. But let's be clear, neither is a new technology. Subaru in fact was using one (CVT) back in the 80's, and other manufacturers have also used them. Also they were updated for the 2013's from the 2012 model. Timing chains however can be a really good thing, or a really bad one. The twin cam Saturns had LOTS of timing chain issues, but then I've seen bigger chains on a ten-speed bike and they were oiled from the pan IIRC.
