Following on the development of the ground breaking TMAX scooter, the elegant new XMAX delivers impressive performance and handling whilst retaining some serious commuting features.
The 250cc four-stroke, liquid cooled, automatic engine offers good acceleration which should leave the 4-wheeled city-traffic standing! But, with a super efficient motor and a 12.5 litre tank, expect a great fuel range.
With a long wheelbase, sports-type alloy chassis, 15/14 inch wheels and wide tyres, the XMAX boasts out-of-its-segment handling. Its agility is matched by large diameter discs (267mm and 240 mm). A seat height of just 785mm offers city confidence and a fully car-style dash protects the rider from the elements.
Top of the list of practicalities has got to be the huge underseat storage area which holds two full-face helmets and a front dash section with room for a rainsuit. The clean dash layout is illuminated red on black at night for extra visibility.
As with all Yamaha models a range of stylish accessories will be available including both touring and sports screens, resin side protectors, hand guards and a colour-matched topcase.
The introduction of the all new XMAX completes the extensive line-up of Yamaha scooters ranging from 50 to 500cc. This new 250cc Scooter is sure to be successful in this key segment.
Due in dealer showrooms in early July, the XMAX will be available in Lava Red and Mistral Grey (also known as Anthracite Grey). Price is still to be announced.
