XMax 250 Pros & Cons

Things We Like in 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.

Things We Dont Like in 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.

XMax 250 Overview

Yamaha undoubtedly has the most diverse range of products in the country. Even before we get to the big bikes, there are 12 bikes, mopeds, and automatics that vie for your attention. In this expansive lineup, the XMAX 250 is one of the best that Yamaha has to offer. One of the best execution of the maxi scooter design in the 600 cc lot, it has some of the most advanced features ever to be found on a scooter. It has a lot to compete against too with the likes of SYM Evo, SYM CRUiSYM 250i, and Honda NSS300. The newest iteration of this scooter was launched in Malaysia in January this year. The biggest scooter sold by Yamaha in the country has now become even more advanced. The new XMAX is Euro 4 compliant and sells in two different color options for a pricey sum of around RM 22,000. Here is a look at everything that it gets you for that sum.

Yamaha XMax 250 Design

Probably the biggest draw for this bike has to be its maxi scooter design. The TMAX inspired design still looks as fresh as ever and forces people to look at scooters in a new way. The XMAX has been called many things from GT to urban scooter and looking at the bike will reveal the reason. Modern is the first word that comes to mind. The gigantic looking front end houses a huge windshield and sharp LED headlights, along with LED DRLs. Taillight also gets the LED treatment while the indicators still use bulbs. The bike has a low stance and the angular body panels make it look aggressive. There is a big silencer flanking the rear quarters and the seat looks comfy and luxurious.

The bike is 2185 mm long, 775 mm wide, and 1465 mm tall. The 795 mm seat height will pose some difficulty to shorter riders. However, the handlebars are low and taller riders may find the seating a bit compact. Thankfully the handlebars and the windshield are slightly adjustable. The scooter should be easy to manoeuvre in the city with a ground clearance of 1540 mm. The 135 mm ground clearance should pose no problem with speed breakers. The front uses a 15” 5 spoke wheel with a 120/70 tire and the rear uses a 14” wheel with a 140/70 tire. This being a modern urban scooter, comes with every amenity you can think of. It comes with a smart key with remote locking and opening of the fuel tank, storage compartment, and even a call back system. A 12 V power outlet resides in the locked left compartment up front. The right side has another similar storage compartment. The under seat storage is lit internally with an LED light and is big enough to store 2 full face helmets. The instrument cluster consists of two analogue dials for the speedometer and tachometer and a multi-information display in the middle.

XMax 250 Ride & Handling

The bike comes with motorcycle style telescopic front forks with 110 mm of travel in the front and twin shock absorbers with 76 mm of travel in the rear. This gives the bike very good handling and stability. The seating might be a little compact for taller riders especially because of the position of the footboards. But there is some adjustability afforded by the handlebars and the windshield. The Dunlop Scootsmart tires provide excellent grip in all conditions. The seats are comfortable and the windshield does its job well on the highways.

Yamaha XMax 250 Engine & Fuel Consumption

The engine is a single cylinder with 4 valve heads and SOHC. This mill is water cooled and fuel injected while also using a variety of engine tech including Blue Core and VVT. The motor then produces 23 PS at 7000 rpm and 24.3 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. Immediate acceleration at the twist of the throttle is always present. The top speed of 140 kmph is easy to reach. At the same time, mileage figure of 30 kmpl is also within reach. The 11-litre tank then lasts for a very long time. Handling is inspiring and confidence boosting whether you are sweeping through corners or cruising down the highway. The bike comes with a one-piece rigid crankshaft that keeps the weight low while also improving the handling. The body might look like it would scrape easily when leaning on corners. But there is enough clearance for whatever you may have in mind

XMax 250 Braking & Safety

There is a 267 mm disc brake on the front and a 245 mm on the rear. Additionally the bike comes standard with dual channel ABS and traction control. These features make it one of the safest vehicles in the segment.

Yamaha XMax 250 Verdict

The Yamaha XMAX 250 is the best that you can get in this segment. It lives up to its maxi scooter image and pushes our expectations as to what we can expect from our vehicles. So, head over to your Yamaha dealer and get a taste of what the future looks like.

    That is the nickname given to the Xmax by this bike's enthusiasts. I have been riding my Xmax in the city for almost one year.

Reasonably good power Read More

    No doubt it is good in term of quality and performance but it is blardy expensive for majority of Malaysian. Although it is comfortable for highway, it is not suitable to ride in heavy traffic area like middle of KL or PJ where you need a smaller kapcai to menuever between cars. Read More
