Dilemma between Yamaha Tmax 530 SX, Honda NM4 / Vultus and any Class 2 3-wheelers


Recommended Posts

Dear Riders of the Scooting Community,

 

I am currently riding an Aprilia Shiver 750 ABS and may have the intention to change to a Class 2 Scooter 2017-18 for transport with a box (personal preference for not liking a box on other makes) for a slightly more comfortable and easier Point A-B in SG - JB.

 

I was initially eyeing on the Can Am Spyder but realized that the massive size will be almost impossible to weave through traffic and the $ I will rather grab an older 3 with comfort (air-con and music).

 

I am deciding between the Yamaha Tmax 530 SX, Honda NM4 / Vultus 750 or any Class 2 3-wheelers for now.

 

Do provide any form of information of the makes, place to view/buy what not please!

 

*Grins* :p

I ride a gilera fuoco 500 which is probably the only class 2 3wheeler. The other would be the piaggio 500 3wheeler which I have only seen on pic.

 

I'm also thinking of switching to a tmax when the coe runs out on 2019 or sell it before then.

 

No issue doing short trips around JB thru either custom. 120km/h is a comfortable speed, higher speed will require more attention due to the wind and I feel it also lacks power over all. I have a givi trekkers 58L and givi screen mounted and the underseat space is quite small. The 250cc mp3 and x8 200cc I own earlier got better underseat storage. Not much leg room for the fuoco too.

 

I always hear 3wheeler need a lot of maintenance. I'm probably lucky as I've only change the steering cone and put in a new clutch during my ownership.

 

Another bike I'm considering is the kymco ak550. Don't think it hit our shore yet thou

Riding TMax now. super agile and zippy for city/highway commuting. easy to split cars. underseat storage is great and the scoot will still look chio with rear box.

 

for Honda NM4 / Vultus 750, it look rather bulky and I have encountered OTR before. Seems like rather challenging to split cars. Storage is rather underwhelming and will not look as nice with a rear box.

 

One more option you can consider is maybe Honda X ADV. interesting scooter concept plus fierce looks with good amount of underseat storage.

Aww.. Thank you for the feedback, skyblueblue ! :D

 

I was initially eyeing on Gilera Fuoco as well! Heard it somewhere that they are no longer bringing it in; thus the shift to Tmax and NM4. Not sure how true though.

 

Seriously? No issues with the Wdlnds-JB customs? The gantries are like SO SMALL.. Gosh.

 

Heard about the Kymco Ak as well. Gosh, too many choices though I will just want a point A-B transport. Thus the follow up to gather feedbacks here! Hehe.

Thank you so much for the feedback, AdrielX!

 

Ya riding the '17 as well? Yes, heard the good reviews/videos what not as well! Tt's y I was interested in it. The only issue is with the MPH reading and not KMH?

 

The NM4 really looks batman-ish and I actually rode for 12 years; 6 rides without box thus the underwhelming underseat storage would be good enough for me I guess. But of coz an extra rear box will be great since the intention of getting a scooter is purely for transport purposes. *grins

 

I note that the Tmax's torque/pick up is better than the NM4 but coz of CC, I reckon the highway speeds are slightly better coz I travel quite a bit on the highways..

Hi all,

 

I'm planning to buy super scooter by next month and confused to choose between T-MAX 530 DX & Kymco AK550. Anyone can share their experience with these bikes?

 

My main question is:

1) Does Kymco has re-sale value if i plan to sell off after few years. I know Yamaha has re-sale value.

2) Any issues if I go touring with with either bikes to Malacca, KL?

3) I like Kymco storage below seat, can fit 2 full face helmet but no cruise control, whereas in T-MAX can fit only one helmet and bit of extra space but has cruise control which I prefer.

4) How's the petrol consumption for both bikes?

 

Your valuable answers and feedback is much appreciated. Thanks.

Apologies ppl as I seldom venture into sgbikes ever since i started riding an AK550.

 

My main question is:

1) Does Kymco has re-sale value if i plan to sell off after few years. I know Yamaha has re-sale value.

Kymco re-sale value is low but I heard it is a good bike to ride long period in aka COE?

2) Any issues if I go touring with with either bikes to Malacca, KL?

I joined a WA group and there are people who rides in and no issues whatsoever..

3) I like Kymco storage below seat, can fit 2 full face helmet but no cruise control, whereas in T-MAX can fit only one helmet and bit of extra space but has cruise control which I prefer.

AK550 only 1 FF and some storage for raincoat, etc.

4) How's the petrol consumption for both bikes?

I am getting 23km/litre thereabouts.

 

:)
