Yamaha wins coveted design award for scooters

Yamaha has won a seventh consecutive Red Dot design award, this time for its TMax 530 DX and XMax 300 models.

The Red Dot Design Awards, organised by Germany's Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen, are widely recognised as one of the most prestigious design awards in the world. Products with designs of outstanding quality are selected each year in the three categories of Product Design, Communication Design, and Design Concept.

In addition, this achievement marks the third design award received by the TMax 530 DX and the XMax 300, following on from the Good Design Award 2017 and the iF Design Award 2018.

The TMax 530 DX, which pioneered the sports commuter scooter segment in 2001, offers daily commuting and fun riding on weekends. As a deluxe model, comfort is further bolstered with equipment such as cruise control and an electronically-adjustable screen. 

The XMax 300 is the successor to the XMax 250 which has enjoyed popularity in Europe for many years due to its fun ride and sporty styling, along with its combination of comfort and practical functionality for city travel and commuting. The XMax 300 is positioned in the middle of the sports commuter MAX series and is being rolled out globally.
