Seems that many scooter sites are talking about the possibility of a 2010 Yamaha 750 T-Max triple. That would be interesting! Would be pretty expensive though.

Very nice, but still with the CVT transmission.

Hey Honda - c'mon the market will most likely support a scooter with real tires and an HFT transmission. Let's see the E4-01. My wife and I do not understand the DN-01, but will buy a pair of E4-01's as soon as they are available.

I'm kind of waiting on newer scooters too. Not that I'm looking to buy but to see what the companies will be coming out with. The E4-01 would be nice as would the alleged Silver Wing 750. I have heard rumors that the Burgman may come out with a 900cc, but that is just rumor though. We just have to wait and see.

I do not understand why the DN-01 with HFT only gets about 38 MPG. I would have thought that the HFT would be more efficient like the torque converter locking to avoid slipping.

I am hoping they they will make the HFT more fuel efficient with less loss of horsepower ... in which case you may not necessarily need a bigger engine.

Otherwise I would expect more "automatic" paddle shifting options on more motorcycles for example 2006 YAMAHA FJR 1300 ( http://www.motosavvy.com/fusebox/dsp_1col.cfm?page_id=278 ) which will blur the line with even more options Cool

I just saw the ad myself, I don't see why the SWing couldn't get a 750 with the new make over there doing. I would seriously cosider a 750 TMax. I likie the current 500cc model they have. motorcycle

I know I am new but if they bring the gp800 here I'm in. I just got a silverwing, it's ok, power is decent but I just let go of my Aprilia Atlantic 500. To be honest it was slower off the line but that is the only place I can say the sw really trumps it. The gp800 is actually riding the same engine as in the aprilia mana850, it also handles like crazy. But the t-max is no slouch and is by far a sport bike when comparing.

Atlanticfun,

Welcome to the forum. The GP800 is nice, I think Bernardo did a pretty good review of it somewhere on this forum or I may have it confused with some other site. I like the Mana 850, but do not like the chain drives of it and the GP800. Truly exciting bikes.

The T-Max is a nice bike, very sporty looking although it does give up a bit of luggage capacity.

So much to choose from.

Agreed, If you are looking for a sport/ scooter those are the choice. I personally like the handling aspects of my Atlantic better than the sw. I know it was slower off the line but imagine more of a burgman with the handling of a t-max. I was happy. I took that bike on several road trips, including the Great river road, 1500 miles, plus from chi-town to Vermont, 2100 miles, I also did well on the tail of the dragon with it, total trip 2400 miles. I was not saying that he was wrong, but I have ridden the bikes he has, plus things like turbo version of a t-max and gp 800.

I would like to love the sw, however it was a piece of mercy that I own it. I have started reading your mod threads and am trying to see what I can do to make it a more enjoyable riding bike in the back roads. Not just around town.


This is just a different feeling bike. Smaller tires, and a little bit squishy, ok pretty squishy.

Hey Atlantic:
Welcome to this forum. Have you considered modifying your Swing? Jeff and Bernardo have provided a lot of information on aftermarket mods that will significantly boost the performance and handling of a stock Swing. (K&N air filter, Leo Vince free flow exhaust, J Costa variator, HyperPro front springs). With a little $$ you can really make your Swing fun.

I had many of the mods that were mentioned on my atlantic, with the exception of the option to have my ohlins suspension it all seems about the same. I am looking forward to seeing how this bike plays out. I will probably look at increasing tire size and suspension to help with twisties. I was thinking about a 14 rear tire mod and the possible conversion to the 14/15 set up. I just don't know about the clearance issues. This will help for the highway as well.
