    Always liked the Tmax so went and got the current one, silver in Colour, 20kup it,
    Ive put a Jcosta variator on it and full mivv carbon exhaust. the variator is one thing everyone should do.
    good tyres are £90 a pair of net, oil change is a piece of piss.

    Its too quick for the chassis, ive seen 115 on the clock,out in the sticks on the fast roads you find yourself going into corners and then you know yr on small wheels, scraping the underside is easy.

    Love the feeling of launching it of the lights and leaving everything behind and doing the big bikes in the bends it gives me a grin going past them in a fast corner.

    Id say you can use them as a main ride as they are certainately suitable and capable for it,but the handling isn,t good enough for the speed avaliable on my mk1 at least.

    I will be keeping it though as a town or commutor vehicle they are unbeatable.

    The old farts ride the Burgervan,
    The young guns ride the Tmax is how I would sum it up.

    Ive got a tall screen for a Mk1-2 if anyone needs one btw.

    All the Black ones are sold out, leaving only Blue for this year. Not cheap granted but great bikes.

    I was going to get one but my Mk 4 is going well , better with the miles in fact,

    However just had a 12000 mile service + a new set of Tyres ............................................£800 !!

    You have to take all the body off to get to the 4 air filters/ transmission filters and its a new V belt

    Otherwise easy to look after and great for day in day out miles

    I believe I have a Jcosta variator sitting unused on a shelf in my garage should anyone be interested ? Never got around to fitting it, and the scoot is long gone.

    Silver wing

    I have had a t max and silverwing, no way is the t max worth the extra money over a silverwing. It's just not, in my opinion.

    I have another silver wing and it does what a maxi scooter should do far better than a t max.

    If performance is what you want get a proper fast bike ?

    But buy what makes you happy
