Hi, from what i read here, i think gonna get this bike after i pass my class 2 TP this month! Super fuel economy and cheap to maintain for a big bike! But have a couple questions.

 

Is it heavier than Fazer600? I taking lessons at CDC and found those full tank Fazers difficult to lift up on its side. Maybe i need to go gym more.

 

How about the height? Can someone standing at 1.68m comfortably straddle the bike?

u can check out the specs in any of the Yamaha web site.

 

lifting a 220kg TDM from the ground is no easy task without the correct technique & strength.

 

bro u 168cm no problem lah! me only 163cm also no complain leh:cheeky:

 

true lah TDM more economy but performace not as sporty compare to Fazer.

But tdm seems to be the lightest and economical of the big multi-purpose bikes, thats why it is my no.1 choice so far.

Well there's a new V-Strom 650, should be light and fuel economical too....

I read from here, sounds good, but not really my cuppa of tea!

hi, can check out this Vstrom650 review... http://www.motorcycledaily.com/19january04...i_vstrom650.htm

 

personal opinion is that if you are looking for a class2 bike to do some touring, try to avoid a 650, might not be that tough and comfortable especially if you are bringing a pillion when travelling.

pufferfish> hope im still in time.. good luck and be confident for your test tmr...

cheers...

hi lyechi,regarding the engine guards ( i prefer to call it engine guards rather than crash bar :smile: ), there are a few options u can choose from:

-original yamaha engine guards from hong leong

-givi engine guards from chap lee/motor219

-hepco & becker engine guards from m-technic

-seng kwang custom made engine guards (u can design ur own engine guards)

 

personally im using the hepco and becker ones, and i find it quite tough and nice on the TDM :smile: givi and yamaha ones are more compact in size and finishing not as good in my opinion... all should cost around $220-300 depending on the exchange rate of euros :mad: hope this info helps...
