        Brazilian riders and Star Wars fans just received a special treat in the form of special-edition NMax scooters. Two variants of the space opera-themed models have been released—one for both sides of the Force—to commemorate 50 years of the brand’s presence in Brazil.

        First is the Rebel Alliance edition, which takes after the X-Wing Starfighter. The predominantly white machine features the Rebel Alliance’s crest and decals similar to those found on the personal spacecraft of series protagonist Luke Skywalker. On the rear quarter of the NMax, eagle-eyed fans can spot ‘Special Edition written in Aurebesh (one of the series’ in-universe languages). Sadly, no mini R2-D2 droid seems to be included in this homage to the X-Wing.

        On the other side of the Force is the Galactic Empire variant, which gets styling cues from the TIE fighter, the Empire’s main starfighter and preferred mode of transport of iconic villain Darth Vader. With a sinister blend of black and red decals, not to mention ‘Special Edition in Aurebesh, this NMax is definitely more imposing than most.

        Underneath the decals and paint is a standard NMax powered by a 155cc SOHC liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. While it doesn’t exactly put out starfighter-levels of power, the 15hp at 8,000rpm and 13.9Nm of torque at 6,500rpm that the powertrain produce are more than adequate for around town use.

        Unlike the NMax that we have here in the Philippine market, the Brazilian version does not yet have the redesigned LCD dash, which means that these special-edition scoots aren’t the updated models with Y-Connect.

        Included in the package is a limited-edition poster for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, one of the franchise’s most celebrated movies. On the lower right of the poster is a number indicating that the scooter you just purchased is one out of only 340 units made for each variant. As per the Yamaha website, all 680 have already been sold out.
