“The 2015 Smax employs a fuel-injected and liquid-cooled 155cc four-stroke Single positioning it between the smaller college campus-ready Zuma/Vino scooters (49cc) and the more touring-capable Majesty (395cc). It’s engineered to offer the best of both words: friendly, non-intimidating acceleration on city streets, yet enough muscle to climb steep hills and keep up with fast paced San Diego traffic on the freeway (we saw a top speed of 84 mph).” ----- Motorcycle USA

“Topping the list, the Smax’s step-through design employs a frame configuration that maximizes floorboard surface area. Yamaha also claims better wind protection
 and greater storage capacity. Front and rear disc brakes, which feature a large 267mm wave rotor up front (the PCX has a single 220mm front disc and a rear drum), give the Smax a stopping advantage, while its 33mm fork (31mm on PCX) and additional rear wheel travel (3.6 in. vs. 3.0) bode well for handling the speed bumps of urban living. Lastly, the Smax comes equipped with much wider sport tires, size 120/70-13 front, 130/70-13 rear. The PCX does have 14-in. rims, but it’s fitted with a 90/90-14 front, 100/90-14 rear.” ----- Cycle World
