Yamaha Sport Scooters In 2021: Nothing But The Max.Dynamic sport performance with premium MAX style

Yamaha created the Sport Scooter segment and totally changed the landscape of the powered two wheel market with the introduction of the first generation of TMAX back in 2001. Since then Yamaha’s Sport Scooter range has continuously evolved, and today the MAX brand is the most successful line-up in Europe’s extremely competitive market.

Today’s range is headed by the latest generation TMAX, Yamaha’s iconic high performance model that has achieved a total of almost 300,000 sales during its 20 year history, confirming its status as Europe’s most popular and successful Sport Scooter of all time. The enduring popularity of the TMAX has continued in 2020 despite the Covid pandemic, and sales have increased by 56% this year.

In the first 10 months of 2020 over 13,000 TMAX have been sold – a truly remarkable figure that further strengthened its position in Europe as the best-selling large capacity sport scooter in every market – and with its 20th anniversary fast approaching, this iconic model continues to lead the way in every respect.

With a sporty and dynamic design that is inspired directly by the trend-setting TMAX, the best-selling XMAX Sport Scooters deliver the ultimate blend of thrilling performance, premium features and finishing and daily functionalities – which is demonstrated by the fact that over 410,000 units of the various MAX models have been sold in Europe since 2005.

Featuring pure MAX DNA, the TMAX and XMAX models have transformed the market place since their arrival, and brought new levels of performance, fashion and style to the streets of Europe. Now firmly established as the definitive Sport Scooters, these models deliver Nothing but the MAX.

For 2021 the TMAX and XMAX range will be available in new colour options, and both the XMAX 300 and XMAX 125 – as well as both XMAX Tech MAX options – will be fully EU5-compliant and will be offered in new colours and come with new features that will take the riding experience to the MAX.
