On the outside, the scooter gets a very sharp and stylish design featuring a tall windscreen upfront, a single-piece seat, glossy treatment on its sides, a chunky rear grab handle along with an XMax badge. Some of its other feature highlights include all LED lights, a digital/analogue instrument cluster, traction control system, ABS and front trunks with 12V DC sockets.

The scooter sources power from a 249 cc single-cylinder water-cooled SOHC engine that has been rated to deliver 22.8bhp of power at 7,000 rpm and 24Nm of peak torque at 5,500rpm.

The scooter rides on telescopic front forks and a unit swing suspension at the rear. For braking duties, it employs a hydraulic system with a single disc on either end.
