All the large scooters are priced too high and then when they don't sell, are sold for much less. People may not care but there is no need to pay anywhere near list price on any (Suzuki, Yamaha, BMW, Kymco)

Nice looking design and Kymco is a good brand. I hate the paint job though!

The videos tout touring, a low seat and 2 helmet storage. T-Max is tall, positions itself as the sport bike of scooters, and will hold a full face helmet.

I'm intrigued. This could be interesting.

Near as I can tell...so far, it is vaporware.

It is currently going through the process of being developed from a concept into a production model which takes a while.

The appearance is now a little more mainstream.

Once it's in production, the marketing guys want to call it the Kymco Blingman.

I like it! But I'll be holding off until it's available in matte gray (or black. or white. or silver).

It looks very nice at first glance.
"The parallel twin line sloping engine of 550 cubic centimeters with DOHC is centrally and low placed in the aluminum frame and the final transmission is belt."
I agree with Buffalo, the step through appears too high. That was one thing I noticed right away. That would be a problem for me.
The tires might be 15" front, 14" rear?
I really like the placement of the Rear Shock, It is easy to get to for adjustment or change out. They should all be that way.
Not sure how they worked out the CVT, nor the Clutch, maybe a wet clutch in the left side case with the CVT on the right side?
"There is information about the engine that uses adjustable electronic ignition with a choice of two mappings a sporting and an economic, a corresponding change in performance according to the wishes of the rider." So the performance enhancement is in the ECU. Still wonder what kind of power output and weight it will be.
Meter Panel looks nice, but don't care for the look of the tail lights. Maybe it could grow on me.

"choice of two mappings a sporting and an economic". THIS IS WHAT SUZUKI NEEDS TO DO TO THE 2013+ 650s to get rid of that lugging vibration in the 2500-3000 rpm range!

(E.D. - what are you doing up, it's almost 3 AM ?)
