2022 Yamaha XMAX Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
- Advanced 292cc Engine
The XMAX is powered by an advanced 292cc liquid-cooled, four-valve single that develops smooth, tractable power. The cylinder is crafted from Yamaha’s DiASil aluminum for excellent heat dissipation, with a lightweight forged piston and forged crankshaft. A counterbalancer ensures minimal vibration while the offset cylinder layout and semi-dry-sump lubrication system help reduce friction and drag inside the engine.
- Full Automatic Convenience
Thanks to Yamaha’s Continuously Variable Transmission, the XMAX offers the convenience of truly ‘twist and go’ riding, with no gears and no clutch. This gives the XMAX an easy-going riding character that is ideal for busting city traffic on weekdays and enjoying a relaxed ride on the weekend. The CVT system also features a large air-cooling path for the drive belt, reducing heat and engine noise significantly.
- Fuel Injection & Traction Control
Modern fuel injection features a 12-hole injector for excellent response, and just like Yamaha’s cutting edge supersport and sport-touring machines, the XMAX features a traction control system. The TCS continuously monitors wheel speeds, and if the system detects rear tire slip, the engine smoothly cuts power to help prevent uncontrolled wheelspin.
- Impressive Fuel Economy & Range
Thanks to the efficient engine design features and advanced powertrain, the XMAX delivers 75 mpg. Combined with a large 3.4-gallon fuel tank, the XMAX boasts impressive cruising range.
- MAX Series DNA
The XMAX pushes the design envelope with advanced sport styling and aggressive, angular cues that set this Yamaha way ahead of the competition with its high-class appearance that elevates the XMAX beyond expectations.
- Motorcycle-Type Front Fork
Unlike most scooters, the XMAX features a large motorcycle-type front fork that bolts to the steering stem at both the top and bottom triple clamps. This provides an ideal balance of strength and chassis rigidity, and better damping feel and shock absorption when compared to typical scooter-style forks.
- Lightweight Steel Frame
Designed for light and neutral handling character, the XMAX’s steel frame results in a wet weight of only 397 pounds fully fueled which makes for exceptional maneuverability.
- Large Wheels & Tires
The XMAX features large 15-inch front and 14-inch rear wheels for enhanced handling and sporty style. The XMAX also mounts the latest Dunlop® Scoot Smart tires for excellent traction in both wet and dry conditions.
- Anti-Lock Braking System
With large 267mm front and 245mm rear disc brakes, the XMAX gives the rider controllable braking power. Backed by the security of Yamaha’s anti-lock braking system, you’ll have confidence in all sorts of road conditions.
- Smart Key System
Yamaha’s Smart Key system eliminates the need to use the key to access the machine. Starting the bike, accessing the storage compartments and fuel tank, and locking the handlebar can all be done using the proximity Smart Key.
- All-Inclusive Storage
Further boosting convenience is a huge underseat storage area that locks securely to keep valuables safe and is large enough for two full-face helmets. LED lighting comes standard, and the fairing also includes two additional storage bays, one of which locks electronically and includes a 12V DC outlet.
- LED Lighting
Boosting both style and visibility, the XMAX uses LED lighting for sharp, visible taillights and brilliant, roadway illuminating headlights. LEDs also use less power and last much longer than conventional bulbs, reducing maintenance needs.
- Adjustable Handlebar & Windscreen
The XMAX includes an adjustable handlebar with 20mm of rearward adjustment, and can be changed quickly with zero additional parts. The XMAX also features a two-position windscreen that can be shifted two inches higher for additional wind protection. Finally, the sculpted saddle makes it easier to reach the ground at stops and works with the floorboards for a flexible all-day riding position.
