What Is It?

The Yamaha TMAX is an A2 licence friendly premium maxi scooter with sporty bike credentials and is powered by a liquid cooled 499cc parallel twin engine, producing 42.9bhp at 7,500rpm and maximum torque at 6,500rpm. It's a stressed member of the frame for added rigidity and low down to aid the centre of gravity.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame
  • Automatic CVT gearbox with enclosed chain drive
  • Dual 267mm front disc brakes with 2 piston calipers
  • 267mm rear disc brake with single piston caliper
  • 43mm telescopic fork with 120mm travel
  • Rear shock with 116mm travel
  • Centre stand, parking brake
  • Adjustable brake lever
  • Fold out pillion pegs

Compared to the 2001-2007 model there's a longer wheelbase, larger 15" front wheel, new 5kg lighter Aluminium frame, new bodywork, improved suspension with a larger fork, new muffler, new dash, new steering column layout and a slight increase in fuel capacity.

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 (+4kg), colour coded 39 litre (£130) / 50 litre (£170) top case, tall screen, small sport screen and pillion back rest. 

  • 2008: Grey, silver, blue, black
  • 2009: Silver, yellow, grey, black
  • 2010-2011: White, blue, silver, black
