Japanese manufacturer Yamaha has unveiled their new model, X-Max 300 scooter. This model will replace the X-Max 250 in the international market. The scooter will be available for the European market by March 2017.
The styling of the new scooter resembles the outgoing model. The X-Max 250 is very popular in Europe due to its combination of styling and riding performance. The new model also gets some styling inspired from Yamaha's N-Max scooter.
The X-Max 300 has aggressive design language with sharp and sculpted body lines. It weighs around 179kg, lighter than the outgoing model and is equipped with new front forks, TCS, good storage space underneath the seat and Smart Key system.
The maxi-scooter also get twin LED headlights, a large windscreen and tail styling with an "X" motif. The scooter comes with a single piece step-up seat with lower back support for the rider.
Powering the X-Max 300 is a 292cc single cylinder, liquid-cooled, SOHC engine churning out 27bhp of power and 29Nm of torque.
The scooter comes with a 15-inch alloy wheel at the front and the rear gets a 14-inch wheel. The stopping power comes from the disc brake at both ends, with ABS as standard.
It also gets a semi-digital instrument console; speedometer and tachometer are analogue gauges. Other information like the fuel gauge, engine temperature, trip meter, etc. is shown on the digital display unit.
Yamaha has no plans to launch the X-Max 300 in India. But, we can expect Yamaha to launch the N-Max scooter next year.
