New Entry-Level Urban Scooter from Yamaha

The new entry-level NMAX features a dynamic new bodywork inspired by Yamaha's high-end sport models, and combines edgy styling with strong acceleration together with easy manoeuvrability and remarkable economy.

Aimed at younger and active city commuters who want a new kind of affordable premium scooter that appeals to the head as well as the heart, the new NMAX widens the reach of the Urban segment by blending high-end design with day-to-day practicality.

The NMAX's compact and sporty chassis gives stable handling with ample agility. And for strong acceleration with low fuel consumption – 45.7km/litre WMTC mode – the new 125cc 4-stroke engine features variable valve actuation (VVA) with an efficient fuel injection system.

A significant feature on the NMAX is that it is the first scooter in its class to be equipped with ABS as standard, making it an even more attractive proposition - particularly for new riders. And to underline its position as the premium entry-level city scooter, the new NMAX is equipped with 230mm front and rear discs that deliver strong and progressive braking performance.

To ensure high levels of riding comfort - together with good chassis rigidity and high stability feeling - the NMAX is fitted with twin rear shock absorbers on 13-inch wheels. Whereas the dynamic face of the NMAX shows its sporty character, by featuring a twin-eye LED headlight design when on low beam, while a third central light comes on in high beam mode. At the rear there's a stylish LED stoplight, and the LCD instruments reinforce this entry-level scooter's high-standard specification.

By setting high standards for style, performance, practicality and value, this sporty and desirable new scooter is designed to offer a better solution to a generation of active and young commuters willing to enjoy metropolitan life in a smart and affordable way without compromising on quality, look and riding fun.
