Since its introduction 20 years ago, the Yamaha TMAX has retained its success as one of the world’s best-selling sports scooters.
The 1st generation 500cc 2-cylinder scooter can reach 160km/h, thanks to the compact motor mounted in the tubular frame.
The 2nd generation was also a hit when it was introduced between 2004 and 2007 with a more powerful injection engine and better features in the form of a new suspension setup, double front disc, and ABS (optional).
Later in 2008, Yamaha introduced a new aluminium frame that helps improve maneuverability.
Four years later, the 4th generation came into the picture, this time with a bigger 530cc platform paired to a belt transmission and aluminium swingarm. The motorcycle then updated again in 2015, which came with radial brake callipers to improved braking.
Yamaha then makes a huge leap two years later by introducing the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) and Traction Control (TCS), selectable power delivery, cruise control, heated grip/saddle, and electrically adjustable windscreen.
Last year, the engineers at Shizuoka threw a bigger displacement. This time, a 560cc powerplant that produces 46.9hp @ 7,500rpm and 55.7Nm @ 5,250rpm.
To date, nearly 300,000 units have been sold across Europe, making the TMAX the most successful “sport scooter” ever produced.
