2008_Yamaha_TMAX.jpg

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.
