"A new Smartkey system allows the rider to keep the key fob in their pocket while maintaining the ability to start and turn off the engine without the need to use a standard key switch. Additionally, the Smartkey allows the rider to operate the steering lock, seat lock release and 12V electric outlet cut-off with the push of a button located in the center of the inner panel."

Nice!

It's great that they brought it back but I can't understand why they would offer such a sporty scooter in such a boring color

I think it's great! But man, pricing! No real rider is going to pay that much for a scooter

Seriously though, that will be the attitude.

I like that it weighs under 500# and has a long track record with a great aftermarket. Probably great reliability too.

Love my BMW, but may have chosen this if given the opportunity. No regrets though. Glad to see they are giving it another shot here.

I looked hard at the BMW but at 550 lbs it was just a bit heavy for my compromised legs. At almost 60lbs lighter the Tmax could work.

But I hate the color....

Well F%@k!!!!!!!

I want it. What is wrong with the color?

Not sure I can justify that price. Maybe I can hold on to my Versys for a couple more years and then buy a used one.

Glad Yamaha brought it back. Of course if they had never left I could afford a couple year old 530 already.

Imagine that - another Yamaha product without ABS as an option.

Oh God Yes! Then I read the specs and sadly no ABS and only room for one full face helmet... If I rememeber does the C650 and Burgman come with Traction Control of something of that sort otherwise I can't even compare it with the Tmax. The smart key is a great idea.

Normally ABS adds $500 or more to the price of a bike. I think maybe Yamaha didn't want to try tosell an 11K scooter. However, given how many people today expect ABS I think it is a mistake on their part not to at least offer it as an option.

ABS and a more sporty color would have been all it took for me to go for it.
