Yamaha TMAX For Sale

The 2001 Yamaha TMAX is an A2 licence friendly premium maxi scooter with sporty bike credentials and is powered by a 500cc parallel twin engine which puts out 45bhp. It was updated in 2008, 2012, 2015 and 2017.

What Is It?

The original TMAX was powered by a liquid cooled 499cc parallel twin four stroke engine, producing 44.9bhp at 6,750rpm and maximum power at 5,500rpm. It's mounted to the Steel tubular frame as a stressed member for increased rigidity.

Features include:

  • Automatic CVT gearbox with enclosed chain final drive
  • Dual 267mm discs up front with 2 piston calipers (single prior to 2004)
  • 267mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • 38mm telescopic fork with 120mm travel (41mm from 2004)
  • Rear shock with 120mm travel
  • Electric starter and fuel injection
  • Folding rear pegs

The 14" three spoke wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 160/70 at the rear although from 2004 the rear wheel grew to 15". Elsewhere there is a handy glove box on the right and the underseat storage takes a full face helmet while also being illuminated.

2004 saw an increased compression ratio, fuel injection, power jump from 40 to 45bhp, an increase in fork size, 3 to 5 spoke wheels and 14 to 15" rear wheel. The front brakes are now dual discs, the rear has a parking brake and the console sees a major update with a rev counter.

From 2005 optional ABS adds 5kg to the weight.

The 2006 special edition TMAX Black (Black Max) features a black colour scheme with red detailing on the seat and calipers. The rims are also polished.

2007 introduces the Night Max special edition, a bit like the Black Max but with blue instead of red.
