While both bikes are good, that one line to me says the Burgman 400 would be the best. (It would be nice to own both though as some have suggested. ;) )

I've used my Burgman 400 for about 60,000 miles as my primary transportation. I shock the people at Costco when I check out with a bunch of stuff and they see the motorcycle gear. You can see the gears spinning in their heads...motorcycle + all this stuff = it'll never happen. But it does fit and it fits easily.

For someone looking for one bike as his primary transportation, here are the things that would sway me.
  1. The Burgman 400 is fun to ride. You don't give up anything in the "fun" category with it.
  2. The gas mileage is more like a 250cc bike, even though the power is from a 400cc bike. Most owners get in the mid-60s overall. I've seen as high as 74 mpg on trips. I don't know of another bike in this engine size that'll do that.
  3. Maintenance is simple and easy. It is just the opposite on the TMax from what I read on MajestyUSA.
  4. Tires cost about half as much and last twice as long. If this is your primary transportation...and not a toy for entertainment...that will add up.
  5. The underseat storage is more than on any other maxi-scooter in the world. When you want to make that stop at Costco on the way home to pick up a couple things, you can do it. You don't have to ride home first, then get a car to make the same trip.
  6. Did I mention it is fun to ride? You can get a practical do-it-all bike...and still have fun flicking it into a turn.
