The proven chassis and engine combination has been retained for 2019, as has the pricing which remains at the attractive 2018 level of $6999 RRP.
Motorcycle-type forks and a large 15-inch front wheel (14-inch rear) have been combined with a compact chassis, providing this Max family scooter with agile sports handling, while retaining the business-class level of comfort XMAX 300 owners expect.
The powerful and efficient liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 292cc Blue Core engine is matched to a twist-and-go V-Belt automatic transmission, offering the level of performance required for effortless mid-week commuting through the congested urban jungle, or a weekend escape into the countryside.
Standard XMAX 300 safety features include ABS and traction control, as well as the convenience and security of smart keyless ignition.
Borrowing DNA from Yamaha’s top-of-the-range TMAX scooter, the high-tech appearance of the XMAX 300 is achieved with full LED twin-eye headlights, and a third central LED light which illuminates when high beam is activated. The tail lights also feature LED bulbs.
The instrument panel consists of an easy-to-read analogue speedometer and tachometer with a central multi-function LCD display. A handlebar-mounted control switch allows effortless scrolling through the displays.
Generous underseat storage is roomy enough to hold two full-face helmets or a heap of weekly groceries.
