RRP $11,990 Ride Away


Like a two-wheeled T-Rex, the new TMAX towers at the top of Yamaha’s scooter food chain. Powerful and agile, it can move in an instant from convenient and efficient maxi-commuter to exhilarating sport motorcycle.

For 2008 our engineers have created a host of meaningful improvements to further enhance the Yamaha TMAX’s reputation as THE maxi scooter with motorcycle performance.


The compact new aluminium frame is made of the same CF (Controlled Fill) die cast construction as those on our supersport race bikes, while a new 15-inch front wheel provides better rough road performance and handling than ever.

There’s also new R1 derived 4-pot aluminium monobloc brake calipers, hollow design three-spoke alloy wheels, improved seat and fresh body design. TMAX – it’s the maxi scooter with the sports performance.

* Laid flat and transmitting seamlessly through a V-belt transmission, TMAX’s 499cc fuel-injected, parallel twin four-stroke features new fuel injection settings for even greater low-and mid-speed torque, and improved passing acceleration.

* V-belt transmission means no gears or manual clutch when you roll away from the lights. Just a smooth, seamless acceleration from idle to motorway speed, and the stability of engine braking when you roll off.

* Brand new CF (Controlled Fill) die cast aluminium frame is more compact and allows our engineers to very accurately balance rigidity and flexibility in the areas where it matters most.

* High-spec suspension, all round disc brakes with new 4-pot type aluminium monobloc callipers up front and sporty hollow design three-spoke alloy wheels shod with fat rubber. A dynamic maxi-commuter and adrenalin pumping mountain road performer that blends riding comfort with convenient scooter practicalities, that’s T-Rex… sorry, TMAX.

* An additional benefit of the compact new CF die-cast aluminium frame is an increase in both storage space and fuel tank volume, with fuel cell capacity increasing from 14 to 15 litres.

* High performance engine/transmission combination gives TMAX an advantage launching at the lights, so you won’t have any trouble safely heading the traffic.

* Abundantly suited to life in the city, TMAX has all the convenience and luxury features you’d expect, like, engine immobiliser, parking brake and ample underseat storage.

* The plush rider surrounds of the TMAX cockpit include a new rider seat designed for even greater comfort and improved ground reach.

* From the TMAX pilot seat you can see all the relevant diagnostics at a glance, including the new symmetrical meter panel and trick LCD multifunction trip computer with flashing immobiliser light.

* Peace of mind: TMAX has put in the miles on roads down under, and is a proven reliable product backed by excellent parts availability and a massive established dealer and service network… like all Yamahas. It’s a claim not all scooter manufacturers can make.

* TMAX’s fresh new bodywork conveys a strong frontal presence, which as experienced motorcyclists know is key in attracting the attention you want from the tin tops. Two-part front screen provides the perfect level of aerodynamic weather cheating you want from the elements.
