I received my T-Max 11.19.2010, with 1 mile on the clock. The weather here in California has been lousy for a a couple of days, but I was able to go out today.
First off, the T-Max is an well made machine, on par with the quality of my Swing. Brakes/fuel/transmission/lighting systems are all first rate, the transmission is exceptionally smooth. Power delivery is excellent, you twist, it goes. No perceptable delay between throttle and the bike moving forward. Brakes are excellent non-ABS units, providing plenty of stopping power.
I rode the bike through many different situations just to get a feel for her performance. I rode Mulholland for about 5 miles on the twisties, the bikes 15 inch wheels really come into their own. Handling was outstanding, I never once felt like the bike was going to go out of control.
Riding up steep hills, T-MAX never lost power, as a matter of fact the steepest hills were a cinch. Freeways were even easier, I know the bike was in its break in period, but speeds of 75-95 mph were easily achieved. Cruising was effortless, I could maintain speeds of 65-75 mph, with the tach reading 4800-5500 rpm.
As was said earlier, the one thing that struck me was power delivery, it was outstanding there is no delay,power is instant. Anyway, my .02, Swing2010
