2014 Yamaha TMax 530 scooter preview

2014 Yamaha TMax 530

Yamaha has just made the TMax 530 scooter safer.

Last year they made it lighter and more powerful. Now they have added ABS to make it brake better in all road conditions. It is also better on scooters with automatic transmissions as there is no engine braking to help slow the vehicle.

The addition of ABS has added $500 to the price, but it is still about $500 cheaper than the BMW C 600 Sport with ABS. It comes in white or grey.

Yamaha Motor Australia marketing manager Laurie Carleton says the learner-approved status of the TMax will also attract newcomers who will benefit from the safety feature.

The new ABS front brakes feature supersport-grade 267mm discs and four-pot calipers, while on the back is a 282mm disc.

It has motorcycle-style telescopic front forks and rear shock to give it bike-like handling, while 15-inch wheels give it a plush ride and stability over potholes.

TMax 350 also gets an aggressive front end, new streamlined body panels, new five-spoke wheels, forged aluminium side stand, new rear-view mirrors a re-styled dashboard and a new instrument panel with a host of rider information.

It now comes with a restyled two-step adjustable windscreen, which is smaller yet has identical air

Yamaha also has a of genuine accessories, such as a 39-litre top box with inner bag one-key operation, 22-litre console bag, passenger back rest, comfort seat in black and silver with red stitching, a sport screen, GPS stay, winter apron, engine cover, belt cover, aluminium foot panels, 12V DC outlet, grip warmers and battery chargers.

  1. I wanted to purchase the yamaha tmax and wanted it in my hometown thts india is there any option could anyone suggest me hw i can get it here any dealer i could cntact too

  2. You alone can answer your quotisen regarding your school staff, okay? I sensed that you are using a bicycle in going to school. If the staff like your bicycle, most probably, they will like your brand new scooter more. You said you want a gas scooter? How far you travel from home to school? If it is not so far, better buy an electric scooter because it is easier to maintain and won’t produce much noise to annoy the school staff. Choose the scooter best fitted for your need and lifestyle. An electric scooter can travel 5 to 45 miles per charge and can have a speed of 25 to 30 miles per hour. But I don’t know anything about regulations regarding vehicle registration in your area. What particular vehicle type or speed in order to be required to register your vehicle? You can surf the net anyway if you need more informations.

  3. Qq, I’m getting this bike whether it comes to the us or not. I’m in nyc so Canada is hours away. .lol. Is there anything I need to know about the differences between a scooter for the US and one for Canada?
    thx

      1. I bet Canadas price tag is more expensive than the USAs. I know Australia are selling 2014 models for around $13,500 plus on road costs.

    1. No word on it ever getting to the USA, Mike. I know you guys have been hanging out for years for the big scooter. Maybe more comments like these on websites will trigger a response from Yamaha.
