|Yamaha's profilation of this bike|
|Maximum performance, maximum style
Step through to a SuperScooter with the undisputed king of our maxi scooter range, the TMax. With 500cc of fourstroke, fuel injected parallel twin at your disposal, TMax delivers the kind of adrenalin pumping acceleration you never thought possible from a luxury scooter.
Need the torque to pull yourself and a passenger up the coast at motorway speeds for a Sunday tour without even raising a sweat¿ No problem.
V-belt transmission means no gears or manual clutch when you roll on, just a smooth, seamless acceleration from car park speed to motorway speed. And the stability of engine braking when you roll off.
With its powerplant laid flat in a long wheelbase, the TMax’s rigid frame, high-spec suspension and stylish cast wheels slowed by triple disc brakes has been designed precisely to make enthusiastic use of all this engine performance.
Behind its elegant exterior and generous weather protection, TMax has all the convenience and luxury features you’d expect, like, engine immobiliser, parking brake and ample underseat storage.
A muscular luxury commuter and sporty, mountain road performer, that blends riding comfort with convenient scooter practicalities. TMax perfected the maxi scooter formula, and still no one does it quite like the king.
Power: TMax’s 500cc twin-cylinder 4-stroke engine has a level of horsepower and torque that’s bound to impress. Get set for traffic light launch potential that will surprise a lot of cars... and motorcycles.
Safe and sound: Experienced motorcyclists know that a broad front fairing and high windscreen gets you the level of attention you want from the tin tops. TMax also provides the perfect level of aerodynamic weather cheating you want from the elements.
Stopping power: The twin 267mm front discs (with twin piston calipers) and large rear stopper wouldn’t look out of place on a middleweight motorcycle. Factor in brilliant engine braking and you can really throw out the anchor.
Performance in degrees: TMax is a genuine superscooter, and with this much throttle gratification and road holding confidence on tap, all you need is a generous lean angle. How does 50 degrees sound¿
Peace of mind: TMax has put in the miles on roads down under, and is a proven reliable product backed by excellent parts availability and a massive established dealer and service network… like all Yamahas. It’s a claim not all scooter manufacturers can make.
