The popularity of maxi-scooters only continues to spread throughout the world, especially in Europe, where Yamaha has just put out the Tech Max variant of the popular XMax 125. This model is distinct from the XMax 300 available in our market, and takes styling cues from the larger TMax.
Name aside, the Tech Max trim differentiates itself from the standard XMax 125 with some added technical bits. Where the standard version is powered by a 124cc SOHC single-cylinder engine, the Tech Max has a slightly larger Euro 5-compliant 124.66cc mill with Yamaha’s Blue Core technology. This revised powerplant is good for 12hp at 8,000rpm and 11Nm of torque at 6,250rpm.
Also new for the Tech Max is start and stop functionality which boosts claimed fuel efficiency to 43.47km/L, compared to the standard variant’s 37km/L. Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) also makes its way onto the Tech Max, bestowing faster acceleration upon the maxi-scoot.
Other Tech Max-exclusive features include the Tech Kamo color option, aluminum foot rests, a special seat and leather interior pads, machined end grips, smoked taillight, and a chrome speedometer ring.
Shared between the two variants are a smart key system, traction control, an illuminated underseat storage area large enough for two helmets, full LED lighting, a 12V outlet, ABS, and of course, signature Yamaha MAX scooter styling.
The 2021 Yamaha XMax 125 Tech Max is available in two colors: Tech Kamo and Power Grey, and can be had with a variety of accessories including top boxes, carrier racks, assorted windshields, backrests, and packages that combine these accessories for different purposes. Pricing for this scooter starts at £5,200, or around P350,000.
Since we already have both the XMax 300 and the NMax 155, bringing the XMax 125 here wouldn’t make much sense. Still, the Tech Max’s styling bits and nicer seat would make nice additions to our market’s XMax 300.
