Yamaha announced updates to the NMax 125 and NMax 155 for the 2021 model year. The scooters are now slightly more sporting with a new frame and some finer details being adjusted.
The company also updated the Blue Core engine, which is now Euro 5 compliant, using a variable valve actuation with a new intake camshaft with two cam lobes. This offers higher performance due to the two different cam lobes, one being for lower rpm and the other for higher rpm.
The 125cc bike makes 9 kW of power, and the 155cc version makes 11.1 kW of power, according to MCNews. This scooter can really scoot around. You’ll get good fuel economy, too. The 125 is rated for 2.2-liters per 100 km and the fuel capacity is 7.1-liters, giving the bike a range of 300 km.
There’s a new traction control system LCD instruments, Bluetooth connectivity, SCCU simple communications control unit, and a smart key system.
The bike also gets a 12-volt power socket up front that will help you charge your phone and the brakes are 230mm at both the front and the rear. ABS is standard. I’m not seeing prices yet, but the bike is said to come in Q3 of 2020, so prices should come at a later date.
