Stretched, slammed and radically tuned maxi-scooters are one of the fastest growing trends in Japan with some owners splashing out more than £15,000 to make them unique.

In America, similar scenes concentrate on sportsbikes – but the mainly-Tokyo based maxi-scooter tuners like Bell Custom are taking scooters like the Yamaha Majesty, Honda Fusion and Yamaha Maxam.

Almost a quarter of the scooters are owned by women like those pictured with their own bikes in MCN, March 14, 2007
