Yamaha TMAX 530cc sports commuter
Since its launch in 2001, the TMAX has been highly regarded especially in European markets as a commuter model which offered an unprecedented level of motorcycling experience, and has maintained its leading popularity in the European large-capacity scooter category. Developed based on the "Master of Scooter” concept, the new TMAX is Yamaha Motor’s first scooter to feature the YCC-T (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle)*1 system, and along with other advancements such as the newly-designed, lightweight body frame and improved styling, delivers greater performance, riding experience, and comfort. Main features include 1) the adoption of electronic control technology such as YCC-T and TCS (Traction Control System), 2) a new, sporty up-muffler contributing to greater torque, 3) greater weight reduction and a new frame (total 9kg lighter than current model)*2 contribute to a more sporty ride, and 4) link-type rear suspension which delivers a comfortable ride. In addition to the standard specification, the SX, which emphasizes sporty riding, and the DX, which features a cruise control system and electronically-adjustable screen etc. for superior comfort, will also be available. All three specifications feature ABS as standard equipment. The styling inherits the TMAX DNA, in new proportions achieving a harmony between sportiness and elegance. In addition to the intense front mask, the iconic “boomerang motif” of the TMAX has been incorporated into the rear cover to evoke an impression of nimbleness and rising up toward the tail.
