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
You could move to Canada. The MSRP for a 2012 530 T-Max is aprox 10500 Can.

available revs all the time.
Sure, it was fast, but it was a lot more annoying, and the MPG figures
went down too much.

Also, it was not usable on the highways (everything over 65mph had
the engine screaming).

Now with both multivar AND dr pulley sliders, I got the best of both worlds.

That's a lot of money and time spent experimenting, and any kind of
dual clutch automatic or an electronic cvt like the one on burgman or
aprilia mana will always be superior for it's flexibility.

It's a different story if you care only about performance, that's easy to
do. But then again, buying a scooter if you only care about that was a
mistake in the first place.
What's this????? A scooter owner speaking common sense about bike mods!!!!!! It must be illegal. LOL

My stock Citycom goes plenty fast, especially now that it has 20,000 kms on it. I like the stock reliability and the great milage and almost every scooter owner I run into thinks I'm nuts.

It'll make it 2 seconds faster to 60mph and drop some MPG figures.
It'll scream like mad..

Xenon installed for the headlights and led light for the middle light.

Very good view with this kit and easy to install.

The limited edition sticker is a bit too much for me.. looks like something
that would fit well on a hayabusa.. a less angular bike anyways.

Other then that, needs an Akrapovic pipe and it's OMG amazing.

Great looking bike. I really wish they were sold here in the US. I'd sell my 1995 Honda PC800 to help finance the purchase.
