NMAX Pros & Cons

Things We Like in 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.

Things We Dont Like in 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.

Recent Updates of Yamaha NMAX

The Yamaha NMAX has always been popular ever since its launch. It also received a mid-season update in late 2017. Now, however, the design might seem dated to some. Especially compared to its competitors. Still, it affords all the comfort and practicality of an urban maxi-scooter at a very affordable price. Under that T-MAX inspired body is a 155 cc liquid-cooled and fuel-injected engine producing 14.7 bhp and 14.4 Nm of torque. The engine is equipped with Blue Core technology and variable valve actuation and coupled to a CVT transmission. The urban-focused scooter is also well equipped with features like a fully digital instrument panel, LED lighting, plenty of storage space under the seat to store a helmet and dual disc brakes. There are only two color options to choose from. Priced at RM 8409, the Yamaha NMAX is still missing an ABS unit which is readily available in other markets.

Overview

The need to stand out from the crowd pushes design in new and exciting directions. Honda introduced the PCX to fulfill that same need with a maxi scooter like design and a larger than normal 150 cc engine. This translated into big numbers for the PCX despite its admittedly high price. Yamaha, chasing those same numbers then launched the NMAX in 2016. It has now received a mid-season upgrade that increases the color options and introduces comfier suspension and more readable instruments in the mix. So, how does it fare against in the market today? Let’s find out.

Design

The styling is heavily influenced from the Yamaha TMAX. Anyone finding the top of the front end too wide should realize that is meant to house a gigantic windshield. And then the design will start to make sense. The design is compact and mature. There is no showboating or exaggeration in any of the lines. And yet it will stand out next to any other bike on the road. The design is ergonomic too. The 765 mm seat height makes for an easy riding posture for average height Asians. There is decent ground clearance too at 135 mm. There are 13” wheels shod with 110/70 in tires in the front and 130/70 tires in the rear. The bike has a wheelbase of 1350 mm making it easy to ride through tight traffic. The narrow floorboards will take some getting used to. But otherwise there are many practical features in the scooter. The fuel tank is under the floorboard and can be accessed via the central tunnel. The underseat storage area is big enough to hold a full face helmet and can be accessed with a button near the ignition. The instrument display is a very comprehensive single circular digital display, with black on white text.

Ride & Handling

There is a telescopic suspension in the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. They are, however, set on a harder setting. It can be adjusted for preload but nothing else. The seats themselves are supportive and do not cause too much discomfort with their width. That makes this scooter best suited for smooth city roads. But no one was going to take it on the highways anyway. The 136 kg weight also makes it well suited for cities. It is a hoot to drive around with its short turning radius.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The NMAX is powered by a single cylinder, liquid cooled, SOHC, 4-valve engine. The peak power comes up at 8000 rpm and is rated at 11.1 kW. Peak torque of 14.4 Nm comes at 6000 rpm. This is obviously not a lot but it is still more than its competitor, the PCX. Power delivery is smooth and it is easy to take this scooter to high speeds relatively quickly. This is due to the variable valve actuation that switches the intake cams according to the engine speed. This gives the right amount of power whenever the throttle is twisted, making it easy to fly off from traffic stops. The top speed of around 124 kmph is also within reach. The engine also benefits from Yamaha’s Blue Core technology that apparently allows for high power without compromising on mileage. That mileage figure easily comes out to be 30 kmpl. With a 6.6-litre tank, it can last for 200 km.

Braking & Safety

Braking is relegated to disc brakes both front and rear. These are single 230 mm hydraulic disc brakes that use single piston calipers. They might seem adequate and indeed perform well. But these scooters are supposed to have ABS and right now it is not an option on them. Yamaha says that it is absent in order to keep the price of the scooter low. They have also claimed that they are going to have a variant equipped with ABS on the new model. But right now it has not appeared even on their website.

    A classy urban commuter

    There are a lot of options in the market these days, as far as the scooters are concerned. Most of them focus on the youth with sporty design with loud decals, but the Yamaha Nmax is more of subtleness and class. It is a perfect commute for an office going guy, like me, and will even appeal to young college Read More

    Big and beautiful

    After 5 long years of owning a regular scooter, I felt it was time to upgrade to something new and better. The NMax from Yamaha has always caught my eye and I ended up buying it. This is a big scooter compared to what I had earlier, but it is relatively easy to ride. Helping to stop this big machine Read More

    Bike that mesmerized me

    I fell in love with this single disc and way sportier bike the moment I saw it the first time. It happened quite dramatically. I was driving my car and was stuck in a traffic jam. Suddenly I came across a biker riding on this bike and halted near me. I was astonished to see this new advent, Yamaha Namx. Read More
