Is this the coolest Yamaha T-Max on the planet?

Liam Marsden, 30 May 2012 10:42

Maxi scooters generally aren't the coolest looking vehicles on the road -their masses of plastic making them look like bulbous alien spaceships at best. This Yamaha T-Max is the creation of German custom builder Marcus Walz, who was asked to 'hyper-modify' the T-Max by Yamaha. Walz opted to strip the big scooter down to reduce weight, boost performance and make ...

Yamaha WR450F - Yamaha’s four-stroke fight-back

Jonathan Bentman, 06 January 2012 11:32

A decade ago Yamaha led the four-stroke revolution in dirt bikes.

It won world championships, hearts and sales. But eventually European competition got the better ...

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.
