(OK, take a deep breath.) For the year 2009, Yamaha is bringing its flagship 500cc fuel-injected “maximum” scooter–the TMAX to America!!!
In addition, a 125cc version of the popular Zuma will also be making its first appearance here. Great news for sports scooter fans! Scooters that complete the 2009 Yamaha line-up also include Majesty, C3, and Vino. Gone is the low-rider 250cc Morphous (some die-hards will shed a few tears, I am sure).
Wow, finally a Japanese motorcycle company that has the vision and guts to bring over the goods which will no doubt be much appreciated by the scooter community in America.

Hong Kong’s iBike.com has a (translated) review of the 2008 TMAX. Check it out!
(June 28th) Golden Triangle Cycle Center in Beaumont confirmed that 5 TMAX’s have been ordered; however, the ETA ranges between late-August and sometime in the Spring of 2009, depending on whom you talk to.–Lorenzo
