Driving report Yamaha X-Max 125

Reduce to X-Max

Already presented in spring Yamaha launched a new scooter concept called X-Max. First, the sporty city runabout was equipped with the honorable, yet not undynamic, 250cc engine from the Majesty. Now comes the X-Max
also as a 125. In contrast to the 250, the water-cooled four-valve engine is a completely new development and, thanks to injection and a regulated catalytic converter, should even clearly undercut the Euro 3 standard.

Regardless of this, with 14 HP and 11.3 Nm torque it is one of the most powerful drives in its class. This means that the little X-Max is well equipped, and the power it offers is easily enough for city and suburban traffic. Thanks to the neatly coordinated variator, it goes quickly from the traffic lights, and the way to the next cannot actually be long enough.
The chassis takes both urban pothole slopes and angled mountain roads with great ease
Bikes. The tuning of the spring elements is basically tight, but still not without comfort. The two disc brakes have no problems whatsoever, the X-Max in the braking zone
capture. A double-piston floating caliper engages in the front
the 267 millimeter disc, so that the X-Max achieves deceleration values ​​at motorcycle level. Thanks to the slim body, it snakes its way up to pole position quite easily.
The seating comfort is good, there is enough space for the pilot, the ergonomics are also good. Like best
but the 47 liter storage compartment under the bench. That’s enough for two full-face helmets or a helmet plus briefcase or weekend shopping. If you want to stow the same amount on some other scooter, you need a topcase. The X-Max buyer can save the expense. And at 3995 euros, the cost price is not out of the ordinary. sgl
