The large wheels, optionally with ABS, stability and control will also surprise you. And to complete the ‘weekend-away’ credentials of the X-MAX 250, Yamaha dressed up the scooter with a quality finish and generous storage space.

Enjoy every ride with the stylish X-MAX 250: a scooter that combines the sheer practicality of a city commuter with an additional level of comfort and sports attitude.

Equally at home in town or on country roads, the liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 4-valve engine delivers the power. Protection comes from the stylish sporty bodywork and a high windshield that offer great all-weather protection on every journey, no matter the conditions. While powerful front and rear disc brakes rapidly bring you to a stop, the ABS model offers even more braking confidence in the wet.

Powerful, confident braking and suspension

Yamaha X-Max 250 ABS

Along with high-quality suspension, the X-MAX 250 features large, confidence-inducing disc brakes at the front (267 mm) and rear (240 mm). With an enlarged 245 mm rear disc, the ABS version monitors and regulates the spinning speed of both wheels for high levels of control under braking – giving you confidence in all conditions.

Unique design

Yamaha X-Max 250 ABS

Influenced by the design of the iconic TMAX, the X-MAX 250 is instantly recognizable. The single-piece front cowling and high windshield give the scooter its eye-catching sporty looks and distinctive front face. And while this streamlined design stands out from the crowd, it also offers aerodynamic efficiency as well as protection from the elements.

Sports frame and large wheels

Yamaha X-Max 250 ABS

With its large wheels and sports-style frame, the X-MAX 250 is designed for a lot more than just your daily commute: it’s equally at home on longer trips into the country as on cobbled streets. With large, grippy tyres providing comfort and stability on the straights, there’s a feeling of lightness when you lean in on the corners.

Power for all occasions

Open the throttle to unleash an engine of refined performance. The liquid-cooled 250cc 4-stroke single cylinder engine produces big torque – even from low revs – and big acceleration on city streets. It also delivers great speed on the open road, whether riding solo or with a passenger. And fuel injection offers good economy and efficiency.

Quality in the finish

Yamaha X-Max 250 ABS

The X-MAX 250 is finished to the highest standards in a distinctive, smart style. Featuring a large easy-to-view rev counter, the instrument panel and handlebars are inspired by sports car dashboards. While a large glovebox offers generous storage space, passengers ride in comfort with a stylish passenger handlebar and cushioned dual seat.

Flexible riding position

Yamaha X-Max 250 ABS

The riding position and dual seat are designed to offer maximum flexibility: with easy ground access for your feet, the scooter is ideal for stop-start journeys in the city. And under the seat, there’s enough storage space for two full-face helmets. Plus, thanks to handrails and footrests, passengers stay as comfortable as riders.
