Prestige styling

The sophisticated backlit instrument panel provides all key ride information at a glance, while the two distinctive polygon-shaped analogue meters accentuate the TMAX’s cutting-edge style. Yamaha’s trademark ’twin eye’ projector headlights are powerful, compact and efficient, while the LED tail lamp is taken straight from Yamaha’s Supersport bikes.

Lightweight aluminium chassis

Yamaha TMAX

Built around a strong, lightweight die-cast aluminium frame, the ultra-light TMAX delivers agile, low-speed manoeuvrability together with impressive stability at high speeds. The engine – just like a motorcycle – is rigidly mounted inside the frame, providing a low centre of gravity for responsive and agile handling.

Luxurious comfort

Yamaha TMAX

The TMAX is designed to make journeys as comfortable as possible. Its aerodynamic bodywork offers great weather protection, while the sporty seat provides an ideal riding position, plus the flexibility to move. Passenger grab rails and fold-out footrests make long rides a joy for two, while underseat storage and two gloveboxes allow for plenty of cargo.

Responsive handling

Yamaha TMAX

The TMAX’s advanced suspension ensures responsive handling with outstanding riding comfort and good stability. Motorcycle-style telescopic front forks keep the front wheel tracking straight and true in various road conditions for excellent roadholding - while the sophisticated rear shock absorber gives a cushioned ride for superb comfort.

High-torque performance

Yamaha TMAX

The liquid-cooled 4-stroke, 4-valve 530cc engine has been designed and built with a host of lightweight and efficient components. This all results in high levels of torque in the low to mid-speed ranges, giving you a dramatic boost whenever you accelerate. It’s an advantage you’ll feel every time the lights go green.

Belt drive for more dynamic riding

Yamaha TMAX

Constructed from lightweight, durable aramid fibre, the belt drive allows power to be delivered in an extremely linear fashion and connects the throttle more closely to the engine. This results in bringing you into closer contact with the scooter, to give a more motorcycle-style riding experience.
