Powerful 560cc Engine

The new TMAX gets a major boost in performance with the fitment of a more powerful larger-capacity 560cc, 2-cylinder engine that is equipped with new lightweight aluminium forged pistons and newly-designed con rods. Yamaha's engineers have increased the maximum power by 3.5% and maximum torque by 6%, and these figures translate into much stronger acceleration across the rev range.

Lightweight chassis

At the heart of the TMAX 560 is a lightweight die-cast aluminium twin-spar frame, with optimised rigidity balance, that lets riders enjoy the full effect of the 560cc engine and CVT transmission.

New look

Virtually every main body panel except the fairing and under cowl have undergone subtle yet significant changes for 2020. Yamaha's designers have respected the scooter's original proportions that project a sharp directional attitude towards the road, and at the same time have achieved a more agile look.

Sophisticated Suspension

The new TMAX is equipped with the most sophisticated suspension in the sport scooter class, and features 41-mm upside down front forks with a premium black finish. These full-length motorcycle-type forks deliver sure-footed roadholding with precise steering, giving outstanding performance and comfort both in and out of the city.

TFT Instruments

Monotone TFT instruments feature a speedometer on the left side with a tachometer on the right, and the central display includes an odometer, two tripmeters, current fuel consumption and outside temperature. TCS and D-MODE indicator lights are also featured.
