Marcus Walz decided to modify the Yamaha T-Max scooter and we’ll have to admit that the result is quite impressive. Marcus Walz is known for its hardcore cruisers and custom bikes, being one of the best known names in the business.

Taking about its new creation, Marcus Walz said: “With the Hyper Modified TMAX I have tried to keep the bike very clear and recognizable as a TMAX, I didn’t want to create a spaceship out of it. I concentrated on keeping the stock lines and optimising every detail while reducing the bike’s weight. I have also modified the handlebar area of the bike to give it a radical naked bike image and mounted the mirrors on the end of the bars to give it the impression of a café racer when in town.”

The scooter continues to be powered by the same forward-inclined parallel 2-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, 530 cc engine that cranks out 34.2 kW @ 6,750 rpm and 52.3 Nm of torque at 5,250 rpm.
