Don't get your panties twisted in a knot, Joel. You stated that it was "a cross between a bike and a scoot," and I was simply clarifying that it's not in case you hadn't actually seen one in meatspace yet. Living in Japan, I've had plenty of opportunities to ride the Tmax.

Otoh, the Honda DN-01 that I rode a few weeks back IS a cross between a scoot and a bike

Yes I do ride a bike that looks like an unmade bed that has a face only a mother could love.


But that sure does look like a catfish head on don't you think?






I like it though, but then I like the T Max too. I'm looking for another of these I had one in orange a few years back.

You have got to be kidding me

Twinridder said:I reckon it looks more like a old vette

What a discrase to an American Icon, there is no similarities whatsoever.

The Honda DN-01 will be like the Yamaha Morphus, people looking for an automatic bike with a low seat height. Everyone will be wanting a taller windshield for it. Imagine what that will look like with a taller windshield

Duppypog, we are still waiting on pictures, and another update on your impressions. I am guessing you are racking up the miles. Keep us updated on your new ride. Inquiring minds want to know.

I do like the TMax. A guy at work had one and loved it. I'm still hopeful that Honda will make the E401 some day soon.

Comfort?
Engine?
Suspension?
Controls and guages??

How many miles do you have on it so far(or KM) ?

You are the only person that has one so that is why I am asking.

I have one ordered, so I am just waiting.

Could you take some pics with the glove boxes open and of the gauges?

Thanks for all your help, Joel.

My advice is to go on youtube, type in tmax, and the world is your oyster, these guys customise and race them, you should see the meetings they have in france, hundreds tour across france and italy with allsorts of tuned tmax's, lots of aftermarket performance and custom parts available if you search ebay in europe, plenty of foreign shops and tuners that will keep you fixed to ya seats for eeks in amazement of what these bikes can do!
