Yamaha T-Max - 2005

Yamaha TMax 500

TMAX 500 is Yamaha's innovative thinking at its very best, the first super scooter to combine the comfort and convenience of a scooter with the high performance and sharp handling of a sports bike. TMAX 500 is the best of both worlds, ideal for commuting with its in-town manoeuvrability, easy riding nature and fully automatic transmission, yet perfect for long distance inter-city travel or summer touring to distant destinations. Whatever it's doing, TMAX's sporting nature adds fun, challenge and excitement. With new ABS-equipped TMAX 500A, there are higher than ever levels of safety too.

TMAX is fully equipped for its multiple roles, starting with its dual front disc brakes which offer both the power and control needed for true sports riding, and on TMAX 500ABS these have the additional back-up of Yamaha's advanced ABS anti-lock braking system, ensuring maximum safety in all conditions. The effortlessly powerful twin-cylinder, 499cc engine provides enough performance for all types of road, from steep mountain climbs to high speed motorways. The balance shaft gives it a smooth, sophisticated feel, while the rear suspension has a motorcycle-style independent swingarm for the highest ride quality and maximum cornering control.

TMAX's twin headlight design not only gives it its characterful, purposeful look, it also provides high visibility for seeing and being seen, night or day. Despite its sporting credentials, TMAX offers a big underseat storage capacity as well as luggage space in the front bodywork section. Its convenience even extends to a parking brake.
