Re: Yo!

Mana had a computer controlled variator, like the Burgman 650. I also test rode a Mana and was underwhelmed... :( The GP 800 and Aprilia SRV 850 are classic variators...the SRV 850 actually came with Dr. Pulley sliders from the Factory! 8-) (note the word PIAGGIO stamped into each slider...) https:/...

Re: Tmax DX Dead! Won't start

It doesn't have the weak carbon fiber drive belt the Tmax changed to, but the bulletproof Kevlar one like the Tmax HAD. It's got a better-sounding exhaust, bigger, more balanced Brembo brakes, a lower seat height, out-handles the Tmax in town and in the twisties according to almost every comparison ...

Re: Finally!!!!!!!!!

Us bikers need to toughen up sometimes when we get treated like second class citizens. Not criticizing you Grumpy...just the way the m/c industry often treats it's customers. It's like they live in the past. :( Imagine if you couldn't test drive a car before you purchased it...but that's the normal...

Re: Burgman 650 now Discontinued.....

It seems most of the Maxi riders are realising 300/400 cc is all that is needed and looks like the big makers agree. There again, the Burger 650 wasn't that much better away from smooth main roads! This is why the Tmax or similar works for me personally - the quality chassis& suspension makes ridin...

Ah, just LOVE those Harleys, don't you...

Nice little video. Shows why EVERY bike that I've ever come across that was down/wrecked/off the road was a Harley... :cry:

Re: European Sales Figures.

In France, Italy and Spain combined, the Tmax outsold the X-ADV 8,662 to 7,527. That's only 13% more than Honda's almost new bike, with a real DCT transmission, not a scooter-based variator. All the other maxi-scooter competition is negligible; you see nothing in the top 25 of the BMW C650 GT or Spo...
