Yamaha T-Max 530 is a maxi-scooter most riders knows on their head. Some are thinking what if the design of the T-Max trickle down to a smaller capacity scooter. You have your question answered with this Yamaha X-Max 125  that packs the iconic maxi-scooter look of the T-Max.

The scooter is equipped with 124cc of 1-cylinder liquid-cooled 4-stroke SOHC engine that can provide healthy power at 10.55kW (14.15hp) at 9,000RPM and torque at 11.94Nm at 6,750RPM. The fuel delivery system is fuel-injection so fuel efficiency are now taken care of.

Since this is a scooter as we know it, it features automatic transmission that is carried out by V-Belt drive.

Not just that, the X-Max 125 also features 267mm front disc brake with 2-piston caliper and at the rear 240mm disc brake with 1-caliper system (or 245mm for ABS version).  

The tyre size is quite unusual here as it is 15-inch at the front and smaller 14-inch at the rear. But in Malaysia, I think, this will be modified to fit 17-inch tyre for easier maintainance and also for better looks (only if it is going to be available here).

One of the interesting features of this bike is actually about the size of the fuel tank at 13.2 liter! That is super large for a bike with this 125cc category. So far, the biggest tank I have ever know is the Yamaha 125Z 2-stroke bike at 11 liter, but this X-Max 125 really breaks new ground with that tank capacity. I think, the tank can last you for a week riding on and off to work at 30km/day.

Another variant is the Yamaha X-Max 250 with of course bigger engine at 249cc. It is 1-cylinder liquid-cooled 4-stroke SOHC. The power is rated at 15kW (20.12hp) at 7,500RPM and torque at 21Nm at 6,000RPM. Other than that, it features the same braking system setup like the X-Max 125. One highlight here is about the meter that are fully digital that looks modern and can give lots of information to the rider.

Yamaha X-Max 400 is also here with an extra special design name Yamaha X-Max Momo Design. Momo Design is a design house based in Italy. It carries the 1-cylinder liquid-cooled 4-stroke 395cc engine with 23.18kW (31.08hp) at 7,500RPM and torque 33.88Nm at 6,000RPM  for strong acceleration and higher crusing speed.

The underseat storage is large as it can carry 2 full-face helmets. The seat are duo tone that makes it different that the two models above.

Braking are now given more power with front dual 267mm floating disc brake with dual 2-piston caliper to ensure the maximum safety of the rider. You can even opt for ABS version.

Will this makes it to Malaysia? I don’t know about that. Just hopes so.
