At the top of our Bikes We Can’t Get Here, But Wish We Could list is the Yamaha TMAX. Wait, wait, hear us out. While we know this is hardly a race-bred supermoto or a monkey bike, the old model was possibly the most practical, comfortable and fastest in-town commuter we’ve ever ridden. The 2008 model shares its predecessors understated good looks, stable handling and cavernous underseat storage capacity; improves the stability and handling; and does this all while shedding 5kg. All this is largely because of the new die-cast aluminum frame, which is beginning to look almost like the beams found on a race replica.
