Hong Leong Yamaha Motor has announced that the new NMAX will be officially priced at RM8,812.84 (inclusive of GST, without road tax, number plate and insurance). According to the company, the maxi scooter will only be available after April this year.
Previewed for the first time in January, the NMAX highlights Yamaha’s Blue Core technology that features enhanced combustion and cooling, as well as reduced loss of power, among others. The 136-kg maxi scooter is powered by a 155 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that comes with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) technology. The unit packs 15 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm, which is delivered to the wheel via a CVT.
Elsewhere, the NMAX LED lights at both ends, along with a bright LCD instrument panel and a spacious floorboard. It also has a storage space under the saddle that is big enough for a full face helmet, and a generous fuel tank of 6.6 litres.
