Simplicity personified; Yamaha’s XMAX 300 scooter

YAMAHA’S versatile urban commuter, the XMAX 300 scooter, offers a dynamic riding experience, delivering the perfect balance between work and fun in a mid-capacity scooter that loves to play.

It’s an equation that we all struggle to solve. You know the one; finding the fine balance between the seriousness of work and letting your hair down on two wheels. But the XMAX 300 is here to help, with a perfect combination of fun and functionality.

Featuring a proven chassis and engine combination as well as the high build quality, technology and comforts expected from a MAX scooter, the XMAX 300 sports motorcycle-type forks and a large 15-inch front wheel (with a 14-inch rear).

Combined with a compact chassis, it provides this MAX family scooter with agile sports handling, while still 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 performance required for effortless mid-week commuting through the congested urban jungle.

When it’s time for a weekend escape into the countryside, it’s ready for that too. Standard XMAX 300 safety features include ABS and traction control, as well as the convenience and security of smart key-less 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 taillights 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 under seat storage is roomy enough to hold two full-face helmets or a heap of weekly groceries, or as independent journalist and former racer Gareth Jones says in the video, your mother in-law. He’s joking, right?
