Indeed, at Aprilia a maxi scooter with the facies of sporting motor bike is profiled, Aprilia SRV 850, narrowly derived from Gilera GP 800 but redrawn for the amateurs of machine races. Lastly, as a last outsider, we see in Honda Integra 700  a typical scooter which keeps its cards hidden well.

Aprilia SRV 850 ABS-ATC: Controlled power

Since its launching in 2006, the large Gilera scooter never really worried the TMAX on the level as of hexagonal sales (a few hundreds a year against a few thousands for the Japanese). Yes but here, “the most powerful scooter in the world” today passed under the Aprilia banner “high tech”. Thus, to control the 76 horses developed by its twin-cylinder out of V, the firm of Neale benefits from its know-how in the motor bike to propose its swift machine equipped with ABS and the ATC, Aprilia Traction Control.
As a result, because of this finally controlled power (on paper in any case), the Italian maxi scooter less intends to impress the beginners and to enable them to benefit fully from a very good driving approval. Insofar as it is the heaviest scooter of this comparative 2012, the SRV 850 is certainly not fastest to take off, however it is well him who offers the best taken again and the best lengthening-piece (top speed).

Aprilia SRV 850 2012 likes the fast tracks

Remain that Aprilia SRV 850 presents gauge out-standards in the category. Even if it profits from one of the best turning radii of this comparative maxiscooter 2012, it is far from being simplest to operate at low speed, contrary to Yamaha TMAX 530, best cut batch to face the city. The playing field of Aprilia concentrates more on the fast tracks. There, this SRV 850 offers a very good protection, a proven comfort and profits from a rigorous handling.
Consequent weight and inertia of the large block out of V of 839.3 Cm3 oblige, it is not most natural to register in curve or to raise, nor most rigorous on the angle on the way of a bump besides, nevertheless its large couple available as of the low modes is a treat to start again itself at exit of turns. Astonishing thing, in spite of this vice of power, the Aprilia SRV 850 2012 is far from being greediest with the pump. After Honda Integra 700, it was shown most sober on this comparative.

The Aprilia SRV 850 is far from being most practical

Maxiscooter cuts for the performance, the SRV 850 sins from the point of view of the practical aspects. Admittedly, as on Yamaha TMAX 530, one can shelter a crash helmet under his saddle, but hardly more. There is an additional space, contrary to the trunk of the maximum Yamaha scooter which can still accommodate a behavior of rain and a bomb anti-puncture. Moreover, no arrangement is available in its apron, whereas even Honda Integra is entitled to small a vacuum-pocket.
To hoist the SRV 859 on its central crutch requires certain training and it is here being not only equipped with hazard lights. But to like, the new high-end Aprilia scooter enjoys a quality of raised manufacturing, an extremely pleasant completion and a tariff of 10,299 € for this version witnessed electronically ABS-ATC for less attracting vis-a-vis the productions BMW and Yamaha. But from the tariff point of view, vis-a-vis Honda, it is another history…

BMW C 600 Sport ABS: The anti TMAX from Berlin

After C1, BMW strikes a great blow to mark its return the market of the scooter!

BMW C600… sporting and practical

With its part cycles high flight, BMW sticks to the road in all circumstances. Just, rigorous in all the fields, it offers true feelings of piloting, but request however a little experiment to manage its weight, not really light will be appropriate to you about it (256 kg all full facts on the balance bikescatalog). Fortuneatley with braking, to control his heats, one profits from a system ABS of quality, and one is also delighted to have a plethora of practical aspects with his handlebar.

From this point of view, BMW C 600 Sport remains an authentic scooter, with the best throw weight of this comparative (with the stop one places two crash helmets in its trunk under saddle), with an adjustable bubble manuall which protects very well even at high speed or an automatic parking brake connected to the side crutch. Without surprise, all this has a price: 11,100 € (without the options of the Highline pack), the highest tariff of this comparative.

Honda Integra 700 C-ABS: The best quality ratio/price/services

In 2012, Honda innovates (again)! Indeed, the Japanese manufacturer presents a whole new maximum scooter far from our usual standards. With its wheels of 17 inches, frame typified motor bike, new driving 700 Cm3 coupled with an automatic gear box (with double clutch, the DCT) and final transmission by chain, the machine does not miss originality. Besides by standards of elegance forms it’s with “wise” but well studied To Provide frontage in a not easily protection.
However, to climb on the saddle of Integrated, it is necessary to mount an extremely prominent central tunnel, tallies of motor bike obliges. Also, if a true comfort of base is felt, one feels quickly with narrow with the handlebar of the machine so much space on board is restricted. Inevitably, the knees of the pilots of more than 1.80 m come to be coiled against the plastics of the apron. With the floor, there is place for the feet but one cannot extend the legs for “cruiser”, thing being able to be practiced on the three other maximum scooters of this confrontation.

Mode “Sport” for the performance or “Drive” for strolls

Side motorization, Honda offers well to us! Admittedly, the metal sonority of the block of this Integrated 700 is disconcerting, its vibrations with low modes, like the fact that one perceives each change of report. But in term of performance, the twin-cylinder of 670 Cm3 makes wonders. Fixed on the mode “Sport”, it wakes up quickly with the starting and offer of very good recoveries to 50.90 or 110 km/h, while showing very reasonable in petrol consumption, most sober of this comparative maximum scooter sportsman 2012 on the station.
Moreover, thanks to his typical transmission, one can also roll with more flexibility (and even less fuel) by selecting his mode “Drive”. And taking into account the fact that this integrated profits from an authentic frame from motor bike (which one finds besides on trail NC 700 X and roadster NC 700 S), it is in all serenity that one benefits from these services of first order. And to slow down its heats, note that Integrated it 700 profits here from best braking, with a system coupled ABS (available to the left lever) at the very least reassuring.

Honda Integra 700, large qualities… but small trunk

But the beautiful one Integrated so quite carried out on the dynamic level is not most general-purpose of our quadruplets of maxi scooters. Downtown, the three other maxis equipped with smaller wheels prove indeed handier than Honda. Its comfort is not the best and with its trunk of saddle to ridiculous volume and its vacuum-pocket minimalist located in the apron, the throw weight of the Honda scooter is also the least good of the batch.
Admittedly, with an ultra competitive selling price (of “only” 8,490 €), can one financially allow oneself to graft a top to him puts, but what will it be then of its handling at high speed? This Honda production thus proves very relevant in functioning order, but it is found finally in margin of until one waits on this segment scooter, because if it is simply a question of taking feelings with two-wheeled vehicle, many motor bikes sold with this tariff fill already this functionality.

Yamaha TMAX 530 ABS: The much sharpened sportsman

That it is said: in 2012, spirit TMAX remains! Although it presents here the smallest motorization, that its competitors (BMW at the head) compete of audacity on the aesthetic level or innovating technical solutions (as on Integrated DCT), new the maxiscooter sporting stamped of the logo to the three tuning forks keeps all its legitimacy on a segment which it itself created.
In the spirit of its predecessors, this new Yamaha TMAX 530 has a style hooker, a quality of amusing manufacturing (the best on the match) and proves to be accessible and accessible, for the pilot like his host. With its handlebar, small or large gauges take their marks quickly and enjoy an ergonomics most instinctive.
Base gets a good comfort and protection is good whatever the pace. Admittedly, unlike BMW C 600 Sport, its bubble is not adjustable manually; nevertheless one can vary his height on three levels quickly, via a simple standard key BTR (Allen).

Yamaha TMAX 530 remains most general-purpose

On this comparative maxi scooter 2012, best cut for everything to do its residence majesty TMAX. Leger, sharp, maneuverable, having of a very good motility and a solid transmission, the Yamaha TMAX 530 shines by his versatility. At ease downtown “to commutate” between center and periphery, maximum Yamaha reveals all its sporting potential on road where one then exploits fully his motorization thanks to his part cycles lending with difficulty the side to criticism.
Inevitably, with a smaller engine, it is less powerful than its competitors of the day, but it is not exceeded for as much. Its setting in motion is indeed impressive, it’s convincing recoveries and its lengthening-piece more than honorable.
On the dynamic level, stability in the straight broad outlines is the asset of T max 530, and then it is its agility which charms. Without putting question, with him one passes from a steep turn to another very easily and one even surprises oneself to take much angle… If it thus became smallest and on paper less swift than these rivals, Yamaha Tmax 530 remains model of balance always such a frightening in the heat of the action.

More practical than Honda Integra and than Aprilia SRV

Second larger carrier of this comparative, Yamaha TMAX 530 proposes a trunk for a crash helmet under saddle, but of other knick-knacks can be installed there too. The opening from the front to the back a little diverting and is not best thought to charge easily, however the restraint system per jack is very quite carried out.
As on BMW C 600 Sport, one finds on TMax two filing spaces in the apron, but the vacuum-pocket of left does not make it possible to store least the Smartphone there. Its equipment is all the same of very good quality, but all the more remains that its tariff remains always also high, vis-a-vis a BMW scooter which for almost the same price, offers some more in many fields.
