Performance

Yamaha XMax 250

The Yamaha Xmax 250 indeed feels premium with the presence of enriching comfort and convenience features usually found in the high-end two-wheelers. Features like keyless ignition, full LED headlamps with daytime running LEDs, LED tail lamps, part digital comprehensive instrument console with a huge array of data on display and fairing-mounted rearview mirrors do add a lot to the overall premium experience.

The Yamaha Xmax is fitted with a four-stroke, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder 250cc motor, which is definitely one of the best quarter-liter engines in a scooter. With best in class power output of 22.8PS and torque output of 24.3Nm, the Yamaha Xmax feels strain-free to ride with good low-speed performance.

Despite the heightened stance and relatively high kerb weight of 179kgs, the Yamaha Xmax feels agile and planted, thanks to an excellent chassis under the skin. The suspension is set up on a softer edge, while at the same time, the meatier tires and disc brakes make up for a subtle and fine urban ride.

Slightly pricey

Could have been equipped with few more modern features

Yamaha XMax 250

While the Yamaha XMax looks extremely stylish and futuristic from the front, the rear end looks timid and out of place for a scooter of this size. The Xmax looks very thin from the rear, and at the same time, the tail lamp design too is not up to the mark as that of the headlamps.

Though the Yamaha Xmax is targeted at urban audience as a more sophisticated city commuter, the relatively lower fuel efficiency means that it will require more stops at fuel stations.
