From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Yamaha NMAX

Being an entry-level offering in the maxi scooter category, the Yamaha NMax is loaded with a number of feel-good features, which make it feel premium over other 150cc scooters. The NMax is equipped with goodies like an all-digital instrument console as well as alloy wheels and disc brakes which make it feel modern.

The liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 155cc engine which the Yamaha NMax is fitted with feels super smooth and refined as well as zesty, for the engine delivers best performance numbers in its category.

Yamaha Y15ZR

Being a moped targeted at the younger generation buyers, the Yamaha Y15ZR is equipped with quite an impressive list of features and an edgy design. Things like full LED headlamps with daytime running lamps and fully digital instrument console as well as the trendy and sharp design definitely impresses many.

Like many other motorcycles from Yamaha, the Y15ZR feels sure-footed while riding, thanks to a very impressive chassis. The meatier tyre setup, disc brake setup on both the wheels and slightly stiff suspension setup makes the Y15ZR an agile handler.

Yamaha NMAX

The Yamaha NMax is one of the very first maxi scooters which were launched in the market, which definitely now feels in the way it looks. The overall design has begun to show its age, and it now looks a bit bland as well.

While the Yamaha NMax is touted to be a maxi scooter, the under seat storage is not that impressive by the standards of the same. The space is good enough to hold a half face helmet and some small goodies, but holding a bigger full face helmet would be a problem.

Yamaha Y15ZR

While the Yamaha Y15ZR is meant for making your daily commutes quite engaging, the small fuel tank capacity might be a small deterrent for many. The fuel tank has a capacity of only 4.2 liters, which means that one will need to have frequent stops at fuel stations.

The Y15ZR is designed to be a commuter, but it has no advantages over scooters as far as carrying luggage is concerned. The Y15ZR lacks any luggage hooks as well as under seat storage capacity, which makes carrying shopping bags or any such small baggage quite difficult on move.
