Ok, so you have a great looking new T-max with updates. The question is how does it ride, run compared to the old T-max??? How is the acceleration compared to the last T-max??

Great bikes

I bought a 08 new last july, I have put 9,000 miles on it so far. These things just love to eat highway miles, a little hot around town but that would be my only complaint. Its a keeper.
