One of the key updates on Yamaha's new flagship scooter is a new full-colour 7-inch TFT screen that has been offered with a combination of analog as well as monochrome. Needless to say, the company is also offering smartphone connectivity along with navigation maps on the scooter and it also additionally gets the system to show the weather forecasts.
At the heart of the new flagship scooter remains the same 560cc parallel-twin motor. This engine has been rated to develop 47bhp of maximum power and 55.7Nm of peak torque.
The company has also updated the wheels on the scooter as well as the suspension kit. The TMax now comes suspended on the revised 41mm USD fork and single rear shock which as per the company have been re-engineered for a better front-end feel and damping at the rear, respectively. The braking is taken care of by the same dual 262mm front discs and a 282mm rear disc with ABS, as before.
The scooter is unlikely to be launched in the Indian market anytime soon.
