Priced at ,599, the XMAX should be in dealerships this October.
Powered by a 292cc single cylinder, fuel-injected engine, the all-new XMAX bristles with convenience and technology features.
Yamaha surprised us by announcing the 292 cc XMAX scooter for the U. Reasonably light at a claimed 397 pounds wet, the XMAX features large diameter tires, disc brakes with ABS and ample storage capacity (including room for two full-face helmets under the seat, according to Yamaha).
The fuel injected four-valve single is claimed to offer both sporting performance and excellent fuel economy.
The XMAX comes ready to ride with lighted under seat storage that will accommodate two full-face helmets, a lockable storage pocket with a 12V electrical charging outlet, an adjustable windscreen and handlebars, and an LED headlight and taillight.
