The thing with scooters is that people don’t buy them if they’re looking for a powerful road warrior. The appeal with these bikes is that they can get you where you need to go, and do it with utmost efficiency. To that point, the Yamaha X-Max 250 ABS is all that - and more.

Its sporty attitude is clearly identifiable, thanks to sleek bodywork and a rigid, lightweight frame. The aerodynamic and compact design is not only a real spellbinder, but it also enhances handling and quickness. In addition, the X-Max 250 ABS also comes with extensive weather protection that allows riders to go wherever they want to go in whatever road conditions.

At the heart of the X-Max 150 ABS is a fuel-injected, 4-stroke, 250cc engine that offers the responsive power that can impress you. 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.
