Nice!

It looks great, how's it perform?

Very nice, love to hear how it compares to the older one, if you've ever ridden one.

You're almost there...

Now you need a full-on Darth Vadar mask/helmet, a black one-piece riding suit with armor, and a kevlar cape.

Get a Go-Pro camera, record cage-drivers' astonished reactions, edit a compilation video, and upload it to YouTube.

I would be tempted to call it 'The Bat Scooter'

How about a black storm trooper riding suit instead?

Looks like a nice ride.

The split rear grab rail kind of freaks me out. Looks like you could get pierced in the back if you had a freak accident or something. Is that standard or an aftermarket piece?

All that Black . . . .

Looks ready to play an outrider in a forthcoming Mad Max movie!

Or at least blend in with a group on black Gilera Fuoco 500ie mounts:

linusje? I hate you!
no plans as of yet to sell the 2012 or 2013 model in the U.S.
as a current Tmax owner ,, I want one!
already asked 2 Yamaha dealers to get me one and they told me to get lost
I hate Yamaha !
I hate Yamaha Dealers!
What makes you people in Europe so special that you can get one and we can't?
Your currency is worthless!
Oh yea!! I forgot us American's won't look cool riding a scooter!
I don't want a Burgman!
I WANT the 530 TMAX!!!

I want it!
I WANT IT
I want it!
I WANT IT N-O-W

Mikegigabyte 05-31-2012 10:51 PM

I think it looks more like the stealth bomber
is that radar diffusing paint on the front:1drink

linusje 06-01-2012 12:31 AM

Thanks all.

My anti radar is Inforad K1.

I rides like hell....I love it.

Tacoma........it's a super super super super tmax 530.:wink:

Tacoma 06-01-2012 02:18 AM

linusje? you owned the older Tmax in the past? (meaning: how do you know the 530 is faster-quicker)

here is what I noticed on the changes of the 530:
final belt drive instead of the enclosed chain drive
much bigger brake discs with ABS
thicker seat padding with nice stitching
( I always read the reviews of the Tmax owners complainning about the thin seat padding making the seat uncomfortable,,, but I don't have a problem with the stock seat)

over here in the states Yamaha is running scared about selling too many scooters thinking that would ruin their reputation of selling other models of big cruisers and fast sport bikes because too many people look down on and make fun of scooters, over here is all about image, to pretend you are special and better than everybody else because you ride a big monster cruiser bike that makes a lot of noise,, its not about the joy and fun of riding its only about how tough you look on one!
I guess Yamaha understands that and caves into the social make up of the typicial guy that wants to buy a bike so Yamaha tells the few like me to get lost and they don't need my money and my business.
So be it!
I get very upset watching new guys that just got their first big cruiser bike that can't ride it, then these exact same guys cutting me down and making fun of my Tmax,,,, and those new guys are the customer that Yamaha wants
