With its unmistakeable MAX DNA and high overall specification, it’s no surprise that the XMAX 125 is the best-selling model in its category. For 2021 this entry-level sport scooter is equipped with a newly designed 124cc engine that delivers stronger performance with better fuel economy, and is fully EU5 compliant. The new engine benefits from Yamaha’s Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) technology and features a special camshaft that enhances efficiency for increased torque at all speeds to give quicker low to mid-range acceleration.



As well as improving performance, the VVA system also enables the 2021 XMAX 125 to achieve a significant 11% increase in fuel economy, with consumption of just 2.4 litres/100 km – and another important new feature is the new switchable Start & Stop system that reduces CO² emissions and also reduces fuel costs. With Start & Stop switched on the fuel consumption is further reduced to 2.3 litres/100 km.



For increased manoeuvrability with enhanced stability the chassis dimensions have been revised, and the 2021 model features a longer 1570mm wheelbase as well as increased ground clearance of 140mm. In addition, the XMAX 125’s wet weight has also been significantly reduced by 9 kg to 166 kg for lighter feeling handling and easier parking – and rear suspension travel is increased by 15mm to 90mm.



Both the XMAX 125 and XMAX 125 Tech MAX are available in new colours.
