Yamaha TMAX Scooters For Sale
What Is It?

It's a stressed member of the frame for added rigidity and low down to aid the centre of gravity.

Yamaha's aim was to make it feel even more like a motorbike in terms of handling by moving the riding position forward slightly.
The underseat area can take one full face helmet and there are also a couple of small non-lockable glove boxes. The 6-spoke 15" wheels take a 120/70 tyre up front and a 160/60 at the rear.
Accessories include the ABS system (+4 kg), colour coded 39 litre (£130) / 50 litre (£170) top case, tall screen, small sport screen and pillion back rest.
