I still remember the first time I saw a Yamaha T-Max Maxi-Scooter last November 2002 at Baguio City, it was actually a yellow T-Max too. And as a scooterist, I easily fell in love with its great body and aerodynamic designed. Its only when I’ve done a research on the internet that I’ve knew its specification – a powerful 500cc engine (lots of power, good enough to enter the expressway lol).
Six years passed, and now Yamaha has released the T-Max 2008 model. With lots of nice modifications to its designs and down to its weight. I’m just waiting to win the lottery and I will definitely grabbed one fresh 2008 T-Max for me,lol. For the meantime I’ll just imagine that my ride is a T-Max. Anyway my Geely has similar front and rear look of a T-Max, haha. (My Geely)
TMAX /ABS – EVOLUTION OF A REVOLUTION –
The new TMAX is a pure expression of power and beauty, perfectly balanced. Every new feature speaks the language of performance and comfort, to give you an unique riding experience.
What’s big on the new TMAX? The front wheel, to start with , has been increased to 15”and the front forks are larger in diameter, both providing improved stability. Furthermore, the fuel tank has been enlarged to 15 litres’ capacity. The new TMAX also provides more comfort, thanks to a new seat shape, new passenger handgrips, and a newly designed windscreen for better protection.
Bigger the pleasure for your ears, thanks to a newly designed muffler that provides a sporty attitude. Then there are new front and rear body design, a new instrument panel and an additional storage compartment. You might now think – with so many additions – the new TMAX has put on some weight, right? Wrong! Thanks to its all-new CF die-cast aluminium frame, it is now 5 kg lighter!
Surprised? Just wait to ride it! You’ll experience that the improved torque performance from the 4 valve, 499cc fuel injected engine is the best way to accelerate adrenaline into your system. The new TMAX will take you around the city, or to any other faraway destination with great comfort, fun and endless enthusiasm.
