New Yamaha TMAX SX Sport Edition: The most exclusive and dynamic TMAX 1By introducing pure sports motorcycle DNA into the scooter segment for the first time in 2001, the Yamaha TMAX pioneered a whole new concept in two-wheeled travel. Coinciding with the dawn of the new millennium, the launch of the TMAX not only opened up a whole new market, it also underlined Yamaha’s visionary thinking and innovative design.

Having single-handedly created a new maxi scooter class, the TMAX has gone on to hold the number 1 position in Europe every year since its launch, with 17 years at the top.  In the history of the powered two-wheeler, few other models can match the TMAX in terms of its sales success. In addition to its dominance of the sales charts, the TMAX has forever transformed the perception of the sport scooter segment – and it was also the catalyst that inspired the development of a whole new family of Yamaha MAX sport scooters.

By blending aggressive and dynamic looks with sophisticated engine and chassis technology, the TMAX continues to capture the imagination of a whole new generation of riders. And combining its outstanding engine and chassis performance ¬with scooter style, ease of use and day-to-day practicality, the TMAX continues to excite and inspire those riders who demand the ultimate riding experience. Furthermore, its status as the definitive sport scooter is confirmed by the number of loyal customers who trade in their TMAX for a new model. Because for many thousands of riders, there is Nothing but the MAX!

Now in its 6th generation, the flagship TMAX is a hero model that has secured its place in the hearts and minds of over 250,000 riders all over Europe. For 2017 the range was expanded with the introduction of the luxurious DX and the sporty SX versions that maintained the TMAX’s excellent original standards, while also offering an enhanced specification.

This incredible scooter’s journey continues, and for 2018 the TMAX story opens up a new chapter with the launch of the new TMAX SX Sport Edition, the ultimate sports MAX that is destined to reinforce the brand’s legendary status.

New TMAX SX Sport Edition: My city. My sport. My win.

You always give your very best and demand the best – whether at work or play – and the new TMAX SX Sport Edition is designed to deliver the most adrenaline charged ride in the class. When the city is your playground, this flagship maxi scooter’s powerful 530cc, inline twin cylinder, liquid cooled engine gives you the ability to take control of the metropolis by getting you wherever you want to go – and delivers an energizing ride every time. And when you want to break free from the urban jungle and take some quality time outside the confines of the city, the TMAX SX Sport Edition is the ultimate riding partner.

Designed without compromise and featuring the highest specification of any Yamaha maxi scooter, the TMAX SX Sport Edition has pure sports motorcycle DNA running through its body. For city riding or sport touring, this high-tech scooter represents a win/win situation for riders who put 100% effort into everything – and expect the same in return.

SX Sport Edition: The most exclusive and dynamic TMAX!

The TMAX has come a very long way in the past two decades. Now Yamaha are taking this iconic maxi scooter to another level with the TMAX SX Sport Edition, the most exclusive and dynamic model in the legendary MAX family.

Equipped with a unique Akrapovič exhaust that underlines its quality and exclusivity, this flagship maxi scooter is built to deliver the most exhilarating sport riding experience. A carbon protector plate and special logo on the exhaust confirms the model’s high-end specification – and with its distinctive sound and premium finish, the Akrapovič exhaust underlines the flagship status of the prestigious TMAX SX Sport Edition.

The TMAX SX Sport Edition is also fitted with a sport screen and special license plate holder that accentuate the sporty and aggressive lines of the aerodynamic motorcycle-style bodywork. Combined with the race-inspired looks and thrilling sound of the Akrapovič exhaust, these exclusive features reinforce the Sport Edition’s position as the ultimate MAX!

As with every model in the TMAX family, the TMAX SX Sport Edition benefits from a lightweight aluminium chassis with sophisticated upside down front forks and link-type rear suspension that deliver remarkably agile sports handling with outstanding stability.

Its 2-level D-MODE enables the rider to switch engine-running modes and adapt different situations – and the Traction Control System (TCS) and ABS ensure that every rider can enjoy full control when riding on different road surfaces.

Sophisticated TFT instruments feature a high quality monochrome TFT display with comprehensive information on speed, rpm, fuel consumption and more – and a Smart Key keyless ignition enables remote control – while the unique centre stand locking system adds another element in the war against theft.

Its industry-exclusive My TMAX Connect system enables owners to access information on the scooter’s location and activate and deactivate the engine lock, as well as access the geofence and theft management functions.

Finished in a sophisticated Matt Silver or Sword Silver body colour and fitted with motorcycle-type gold-coloured front forks as well as blue-rimmed wheels, the TMAX SX Sport Edition takes the MAX experience to another level – and reaffirms Yamaha’s ongoing commitment to the Sport Scooter market.
