Staff Blog: How’s that for the ultimate in accessories?

Alison Silcox, 13 May 2013 08:19

Yamaha T-Max packs punch but not practicality

Ped Baker, 29 December 2011 15:00

The ‘fine-handling scooter’ ethos has kept the T-Max on the top of the sales charts since it first appeared in 2001 but MCN’s world first test suggests its reign may be limited – by concentrating on performance, Yamaha is lagging seriously behind rivals in terms of practicality.

MCN, 17 October 2011 15:44

How times change. In the late 1970s and early '80s, bikes with silhouettes the same as these machines would have been called superbikes. Capacity was king and the bigger the cubes the better. Liquid-cooling? Pah, real men like AMA Superbike champion rode air-cooled monsters such as the Suzuki GS1000, Yamaha XS1100 or Honda CB1100. Fast-forward 30 years and this style ...
