Yamaha X-MAX 125

I bought my brand new Yamaha X-MAX 125 on the 2nd November 2018. I've only had it a few months but love it already. It’s everything I need from a bike with plenty of style and enough speed for my needs. It has plenty space for carrying things under the seat and I had a top box fitted too.

Fitted a sat nav which sits very neatly between the handlebars and has a 12V plug for charging my phone etc. The adjustable handlebars suited me as I am tall at 6'3” and I have enough leg and seat room.

Love the red colour, the Chrome highlights and the seat is very comfortable too. I find it very reliable even in icy weather and the traction control has kicked in a few times to save me.

The other thing I like are the clear dials, day or night and the ambient temperature ICE warning that comes on. A must for me as I use my bike all year round. The glove compartments both sides are great for carrying smaller things and one is lockable too. Side mirrors are very useful and very adjustable.

I have not done a huge mileage on my bike yet but plan to do a few trips over the summer. I will have a better idea of the speed it does and millage per gallon once it has had its first service.
