2009 Yamaha TMAX launched in USA

Dailies -



We told you the 2009 Yamaha TMAX would be coming stateside a couple of weeks ago, but now the company has been nice enough to confirm that. The TMAX will be available in yellow or blue, starts at $7,999 and gets 47mpg. The 499cc parallel twin is mated to a CVT transmission, meaning you can ride single-singled handed up to its maximum speed of about 110mph. 15-inch wheels and a new sportsbike-style aluminum frame keep everything stable, and, if our experience with the old model is anything to go by, it’ll handle extremely well. Sales start in July.

    pl upgrade the rear tyre to 16-inch and increase the cc to 600cc. The front tyre remai 15-inch.

    I have had a TMax 08 for 12 months now, done 14,000 k’s and can’t remember when I have had so much fun.. I use it for work and play so am on it nearly everyday.. I ride it all year round in all weather.. other than a little wind noise the bike I can only say its is worth every penny..

    Not sure about that comment of upgrading the rear wheel. But there is an upgrade path increasing the bike by another 13HP which I might do once the two year warranty has passed.
