Yamaha's TMax has stood the test of time. First released in the late nineties as a 500cc offering, it has now evolved into being a bigger and better machine. As you’d expect from a bike that has been evolving for over two decades todays offering is pretty much a bench mark for the big scooter class. As such it has inspired some interesting new innovations from the competition. If you ride any large capacity scooter from any manufacturer that was made in the last two decades then you almost certainly have the people at Yamaha to thank for inspiring them to build one.
These days there are a number of specs that the new TMax is finished in. The one that we’ve taken to is the Tech MAX. This is Yamaha’s highest specification sport scooter. While we use the word scooter to describe the machine it’s never really going to do it justice. This may be an automatic that the rider sits ‘in’ rather than ‘on’ but it’s a scooter that has been made for motorcyclists. If you’re of the opinion that these things are for people who can’t or won’t ride a ‘real’ bike then you couldn’t be more wrong.
TMax - Restyled
New restyled bodywork looks great. This new model is not only quicker, but it’s sleeker and even more comfortable than ever. There are a number of premium comforts as standard on the Tech model. These include an electric screen, a pair of heated grips as well as a heated seat and even cruise control. That last one may well help some of us stay out of trouble when it comes using all that power.
It’s powered by that glorious 560cc engine. This new unit is somewhat future proof being, as it is, Euro 5 compliant on the emissions front. What we really like is the beasts power delivery. It’s puts out seamless power from a standstill to well north of the national speed limit. This just isn’t something that we’d associate with traditional scooters.
