Worth the wait!
By mike(Owner), Sep. 15, 2008
Ive wanted one of these for about 8 yrs now, when yamaha first introduced them to the european market. Unfortunately, it wasnt available when i bought my last scooter- a 2003 Burgman 400. I never gave up hope that eventually theyd stop depriving us... and earlier this year i found out i was right!

Best of the Best
By Bob(Owner), Oct. 22, 2008
The new Yamaha T-Max has exceeded my expectations on every level. The looks are outstanding, fit and finish with attention to detail is superb. Storage is adequate as long as you don't plan on long touring trips although top case can be added. Seat is comfortable but a tad high for some riders. On... Read Full Review
