It looks better in real life but have to admit non of the 2018 colors
really grab me, sods law says they will have the color I really wanted
in the 2019 model year.
Such is life.

Better than the choice for 2017 of black, black and white, or brown :( I don't think I have seen a brown one out in the wild.

A nice bold red or a brilliant yellow might be nice.

Yep I couldn't wait for one to come on order so took the white 2017 one in the showroom. Wouldn't have been my first choice but at least it's that bit more visible.

According to visordown the xmax300 just won a prestigious design award.

The Tmax won as well, but we don't care about that on this thread, do we?

I'd way prefer White to that Matt Grey colour!

Now at just over 1700 miles with a 300 ish miler planed for Thus it sits at 70
for as long as you want now, haven't a clue as to the top speed don't think I
have seen more than 6500 rpm on the clock yet, and even after quite a few miles
at M-way speed it still as not dropped below 100 mpg my last bike a Mt07 was
very good to so Yamaha seem to have got that sorted on their new engines.

Well Ralph mine must be different, a steady 70mph is a good 7k rpm.

My speed'o is quite a bit out according to the GPS but at a true 70 about 75 on the clock
I don't remember seeing it at 7k rpm, it's done a good few miles today at those sort of
speeds, 239 miles in total, 107 mpg, now has 2005 miles on the clock but I will dubble
check next time I ride it, my last Bergman 400 always revved higher than others for no
good reason I could find.
