Yamaha has taken the wraps off the 2024 TMAX 560 in the Japanese market. The sport maxi-scooter is equipped with a powerful engine and a lot of features that will give a few, similar capacity motorcycles a run for their money. Here’s what’s interesting about the scooter.

The styling, to begin with, is properly sporty. You’ve got a large front apron with sharp lines and a set of neatly integrated projector headlights. Above this apron is a tall, electrically adjustable windscreen that adds to the visual presence of the scooter.

Move to the side and the proportions of the scooter are evidently large. You’ve got a massive central tunnel that merges with the tail-section of the scooter quite seamlessly. The placement of the tail light and indicators is nicely executed and on the whole, the supersport inspired design of the TMAX 560 is rather neat.

Under the expansive bodywork is a twin-spar, diecast aluminium frame, with a USD fork at the front and an adjustable rear suspension. The scooter rides on 15-inch alloy wheels at either end, wrapped with a 120-section tyre at the front and a 160-section tyre at the rear. The braking hardware consists of 267mm twin discs at the front and a 282m disc at the rear.

The TMAX is powered by a 562cc, liquid-cooled, four-valve, parallel-twin engine that makes 47bhp at 7,500rpm and 55.7Nm at 5250 rpm. It is paired with a V-belt automatic transmission.

Lastly, the features list is quite comprehensive. It includes traction control, a colour TFT display with Garmin navigation, cruise control, keyless ignition, keyless seat unlock, heated seats and grips.

There were rumours that Yamaha India may consider launching the TMAX 560 after a test mule was spotted last year. That, however, could be a case of the said scooter being a private import rather than a company test unit. Nevertheless, our market has already seen the advent of big max-scooters such as the BMW C400GT which costs upwards of Rs 11 lakh. Despite the steep price, the BMW did sell well. The Yamaha TMAX, however, would cost significantly more, if it is launched in the country.
