  • Updated XMAX Styling
    For the new 2023 XMAX, Yamaha designers focused on creating a bold, modern new look. Virtually every part of the XMAX’s sleek and sporty exterior has been redesigned to create a more compact and visually impressive machine. Radical new X-shaped LED headlights and taillights complement the aggressive styling and instantly distinguish the new XMAX from anything else on the road. New high-mount LED front indicators add to the streamlined look, while a completely redesigned seat increases comfort and decreases leg reach to the ground for greater accessibility.
  • New Full-Color 4.2-inch TFT Display
    The 2023 XMAX comes equipped with one of the most impressive dashboards to be found on any Sport Scooter. This comprehensive instrumentation features a 3.2-inch LCD speedometer located above the new high-tech 4.2-inch color TFT infotainment display.
  • New Yamaha Y-Connect Smartphone Connectivity
    New for 2023, Yamaha is introducing Yamaha Motorcycle Connect (Y-Connect) smartphone connectivity for the VMAX, allowing riders to connect their smartphone directly to their scooter to enable a wide-range of convenient new capabilities including phone and music control, extensive vehicle running information collection and shareability, along with a full Garmin turn-by-turn navigation system facilitated through Garmin's StreetCross app. Y-Connect rider selections are made via intuitive new handlebar-mounted switchgear and displayed on the new TFT screen. Best of all, Yamaha Motorcycle Connect, the Y-Connect app and the Garmin StreetCross app are all free-of-charge (available for iOS and Android).
  • Sporty, Fuel Efficient Engine
    Featuring technology used in Yamaha’s high-performance sport bikes, the XMAX's 292cc single-cylinder Blue Core engine is smooth, efficient and ready for everything from the day-to-day commute to fun rides on the weekend.
  • Convenience & Technology
    With a fully-automatic transmission, the XMAX is exceedingly simple to ride and comes standard with an extensive list of rider aids, including Traction Control and ABS. Combined with a frame designed for light and neutral handling, the XMAX makes for a confidence-inspiring ride on any road.
  • Luxury + Comfort + Practicality
    High-tech features distance the XMAX from your typical bare-bones scooter, including the unique new LED lighting and advanced new instrumentation. With plenty of lockable onboard storage, a 12V power port to recharge small devices and an adjustable handlebar and windscreen, the XMAX is a ready to go whenever you are, whether you need to get groceries down the street or head across the state.

Engine

  • Advanced 292cc Engine
    The XMAX is powered by an advanced 292cc liquid-cooled, four-valve single that develops smooth, tractable power. The cylinder is crafted from Yamaha’s DiASil aluminum for excellent heat dissipation, with a lightweight forged piston and forged crankshaft. A counterbalancer ensures minimal vibration while the offset cylinder layout and semi-dry-sump lubrication system help reduce friction and drag inside the engine.
  • Full Automatic Convenience
    Thanks to Yamaha’s Continuously Variable Transmission, the XMAX offers the convenience of truly ‘twist and go’ riding, with no gears and no clutch. This gives the XMAX an easy-going riding character that is ideal for busting city traffic on weekdays and enjoying a relaxed ride on the weekend. The CVT system also features a large air-cooling path for the drive belt, reducing heat and engine noise significantly.
  • Fuel Injection & Traction Control
    Modern fuel injection features a 12-hole injector for excellent response, and just like Yamaha’s cutting edge supersport and sport-touring machines, the XMAX features a Traction Control System. The TCS continuously monitors wheel speeds, and if the system detects rear tire slip, the engine smoothly cuts power to help prevent uncontrolled wheelspin.
  • Impressive Fuel Economy & Range
    Thanks to the efficient engine design features and advanced powertrain, the XMAX delivers 75 mpg. Combined with a large 3.4-gallon fuel tank, the XMAX boasts impressive cruising range.

Chassis/Suspension

  • MAX Series DNA
    The XMAX pushes the design envelope with advanced sport styling and aggressive, angular cues that set this Yamaha way ahead of the competition with its high-class appearance that elevates the XMAX beyond expectations.
  • Motorcycle-Type Front Fork
    Unlike most scooters, the XMAX features a large motorcycle-type front fork that bolts to the steering stem at both the top and bottom triple clamps. This provides an ideal balance of strength and chassis rigidity, and better damping feel and shock absorption when compared to typical scooter-style forks.
  • Lightweight Steel Frame
    Designed for light and neutral handling character, the XMAX’s steel frame results in a wet weight of only 397 pounds fully fueled which makes for exceptional maneuverability.
  • Large Wheels & Tires
    The XMAX features large 15-inch front and 14-inch rear wheels for enhanced handling and sporty style. The XMAX also mounts the latest Dunlop® Scoot Smart tires for excellent traction in both wet and dry conditions.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
    With large 267mm front and 245mm rear disc brakes, the XMAX gives the rider controllable braking power. Backed by the security of Yamaha’s anti-lock braking system, you'll have confidence in all sorts of road conditions.

Additional Features

  • Smart Key System
    Yamaha’s Smart Key system eliminates the need to use the key to access the machine. Starting the bike, accessing the storage compartments and fuel tank, and locking the handlebar can all be done using the proximity Smart Key.
  • Redesigned Seat
    A completely redesigned seat is more comfortable and decreases leg reach to the ground for greater accessibility.
  • All-Inclusive Storage
    Further boosting convenience is a huge underseat storage area that locks securely to keep valuables safe and is large enough for two full-face helmets. LED lighting comes standard, and the fairing also includes two additional storage bays, one of which locks electronically and includes a 12V DC outlet.
  • Distinctive New LED Lighting
    Boosting both style and visibility, the XMAX uses LED lighting for sharp, visible taillights and brilliant, roadway illuminating headlights. Radical new X-shaped LED headlights and taillights complement the aggressive styling and instantly distinguish the new XMAX from anything else on the road. New high-mount LED front indicators add to the streamlined look. LEDs also use less power and last much longer than conventional bulbs, reducing maintenance needs.
  • Adjustable Handlebar & Windscreen
    The XMAX includes an adjustable handlebar with 20mm of rearward adjustment, and can be changed quickly with zero additional parts. The XMAX also features a two-position windscreen that can be shifted two inches higher for additional wind protection. Finally, the sculpted saddle makes it easier to reach the ground at stops and works with the floorboards for a flexible all-day riding position.
  • Ready to Accessorize
    Personalize your XMAX with a range of Yamaha Genuine Accessories, including luggage, accessory mounts, backrests and more. See the full range of accessories on ShopYamaha.com.
