Yamaha's new TMAX range

YAMAHA revealed a new version of its TMAX for 2017, with traction control, a new aluminium chassis and chip-controlled throttle.

In fact the firm’s unveiled three versions because there’s also a new TMAX SX and DX, both with extra features.

All versions come with a new ‘sporty and dynamic body design’ and weigh 10kg less than the 2016 version, at 213kg wet.

They’ve got a longer swing-arm with link-type suspension, increased storage space for two open-face helmets and a keyless ignition.

There’s a new TFT instrument panel, a ‘compact, upswept’ exhaust and ‘lightweight tyres with low rolling resistance,’ Yamaha says.

ABS is standard and the model comes ready to connect with Dainese’s D-Air airbag jacket system.

The 530cc parallel-twin engine makes 46hp and complies with Euro4 emission limits.

The TMAX SX also comes with adjustable power modes and can connect to your smartphone via an app, giving owners access to an integrated GPS bike tracker.

The top-of-the-range TMAX DX has all that plus cruise control, an electric adjustable screen, adjustable rear suspension and heated rider seat and grips.

The TMAX comes in black, the TMAX SX in matt silver and the TMAX DX in blue.

They were unveiled at the Yamaha press conference in Milan, Italy, with price to be confirmed.
