- Spotted testing overseas
- Looks similar to the current model that’s sold internationally
- Powered by a 292cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine
Yamaha XMax 300 maxi-scooter has been spotted testing overseas. The test mule looks similar to the current model (also available internationally) but could house a few changes inside.
The newly spotted Yamaha XMax 300 test mule is equipped with split LED headlights and a muscular bodywork. It’s quite identical to the one that’s on sale right now with its sporty and youth-enticing design language.
Currently, the XMax 300 packs a 292cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor. It dishes out 27.6bhp and 29Nm and is mated to a CVT setup. The test mule will likely house the same setup as it already adhered to the Euro-5 norms. But with stringent norms incoming to cut noise pollution, the updated version could be running a few decibels lower.
It’s also equipped with the same conventional telescopic front forks and dual rear shocks while the braking hardware comprises a single front and rear disc mounted on a 15-inch front and a 14-inch rear wheel.
In the UK, Yamaha sells the current iteration of the XMax 300 for GBP 5,950 (approximately Rs 5.47 lakh sans taxes). The updated model could see a slight bump in the asking price. As of now, the only maxi-scooter that Yamaha sells in India is the Aerox 155.
