We've been inundated by maxi scooters. This June we get our hands on 3 of the best maxi scooters currently available.

June is Maxi Month 

It's not often you get to lay your hands on the best maxi scooters on the market, all one after the other, all in the same month.

Firstly we've been getting reacquainted with BMW's scooter duo. The BMW C600 Sport and the C650 GT were first released late in 2012, I remember the launch fondly. We've now had the pleasure of being able to spend some extended one on one time. We'll have a full report shortly.

Next week the new TMAX 530 enters the Scootersales garage. This will be our first chance to extensively test Yamaha's updated offering. The TMAX 530 has been given a host of refinements, said to now be lighter with a little more power across the entire range. A new rear aluminium swingarm, new styling features everywhere, the TMAX 530 should be a good thing. Again, we'll have a full report shortly.

Winter is here, so it's a perfect time to be riding the best maxi scooters on the market today. This July will see Aprilia's SRV 850 added into the equation, so watch out for that one. At the end of the year Piaggio will join the maxi ranks by adding the new single cylinder X10 500. The Australian market will once again be spoilt for choice in the maxi scooter segment.

In June, full reviews on : BMW C600 Sport : BMW C650 GT : Yamaha TMAX 530. Coming Soon, Aprilia's SRV 850 ABS/ATC.
