    Yamaha can't sell the few scooters they do import. I don't know what the hell you are talking about and I don't think you do either.

    I'll assume you're talking about the SH150.

    If that's the case, the SH has better suspension and brakes then the
    little Ninja, and is built better then my ex Ninja 650.

    That may have something to do with it.

    There are a lot of new '09 to '11 Tmax left over all over the country. I found almost 70 new ones sitting in dealer showrooms just from a two minute search from ONE online shopping site. There wouldn't be so many people in line that hates you if you would do some research first before you speak. :loco

    I certainly don't hate you. I do think you are full of shit. I'll back that up. I don't know that you are from Tacoma, but I did a Cycle Trader search for Tmax scooters within 250 miles of Tacoma. There are 5 new 2009 (that's 4 model years old) Tmax scooters in dealer showrooms within 250 miles of Tacoma right now.

    http://www.cycletrader.com/New-Or-Used-Yamaha-Tmax-Motorcycles-For-Sale-In-Tacoma-Washington/search-results?type=356953&make=Yamaha|2321194&model=Tmax&modelkeyword=1&zip=98405&radius=250&sort=year:desc

    If you don't live in Tacoma, then run a search on your area and see what you come up with. I'll bet there are new Tmax and other scooters in that area that are several model years old. You are right on some counts. The TMax is a fantastic scooter. MSRP on some scooters seems inconsistent with their technology, size and performance.

    Which scooters are the hottest selling ones that dealers should stock up on?

    I'll try not to. But this moran from Tacoma is getting to me.

    To the moran...look, clown. Nobody cares that much what you ride.

    You have no friends...because you're a PECKERHEAD.

    Read more; post less; STFU and enjoy the ride. You might even make a few friends that way...there's other misfits out there; just show a little restraint.

    Great looking scooter. I probably have more fun on my 50cc scooter than my Superduke. :D

    I'll toss my vote in on that one too.


    Love the "stealthmax" look you have going on there. Any frame of reference between the 530 and the older 500? Or is this your first Tmax?

    It needs more black.
    I'm not sure about it this way.

    To the people who are tired of Tacoma's crap:

    Click on Tacoma's name over there on the left. A drop-down menu shows up.

    Click on "view public profile"

    Click on "user lists". A drop-down menu shows up.

    Click on "ignore user" and confirm.

    I love that--the red stitching and carbon fiber contrasts very nicely with the matte black. I'm sure it looks even better in person.

    The only "big" scoot (500+ cc) I"ve been on is the Burgman 650 Executive, and it was amazing. I'd love an opportunity to try the T-max.
