‘The TMAX is the go-to scoot’
Yamaha’s new TMAX is as comfy as a tourer, big on standard equipment, fun, refined, spacious, easy to ride and oozes presence. It’s as at home gobbling up miles of motorway as it is barging its way around the Arc de Triomphe. It’s still the go-to big scoot, and wins the test. BMW’S C650 Sport has zippier performance and is our top choice for two-up trips, but it lacks the TMAX’S all-enveloping weather protection and toys. The Honda X-ADV is great value, superb on fuel, well-built and the most fun here, but lacks the practicality of a big scooter.
