The Yamaha TMAX 560

The Yamaha TMAX is widely regarded as the original maxi-scooter that revolutionized the industry. Introduced at the beginning of the 21st century, it redefined the concept of scooters. Over its 24-year history, the TMAX has continuously improved in terms of performance and technology while maintaining its focus on practicality and comfort.

In 2024, Yamaha unveiled the new TMAX 560 in Japan, featuring numerous updates to enhance its already impressive features. Even for someone like me who isn't typically a fan of maxi-scooters, the Yamaha TMAX stands out as a top choice.

Performance and Technology

The 2024 Yamaha TMAX is equipped with a 562cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected parallel-twin engine, delivering 47 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 41 pound-feet of torque. This power output sets it apart as one of the most potent scooters available.

Yamaha has integrated advanced technology features into the TMAX, including traction control, a full-color TFT display with Garmin navigation, cruise control, keyless ignition, and heated seats and grips for added comfort.

Practicality and Comfort

Aside from its performance capabilities, the 2024 Yamaha TMAX prioritizes practicality and comfort. With a tall windscreen, relaxed ergonomics, and a comfortable seat, riders and passengers alike can enjoy a pleasant journey. The scooter also offers ample storage space under the seat for daily essentials, with the option to add saddlebags or a top case for increased utility.


The Yamaha TMAX 560 features a sleek and sporty design, drawing inspiration from its sportier counterparts. Angular bodywork, a stylish LED headlight, and dynamic lines give the scooter a modern and aggressive appearance. Despite being a scooter, the TMAX exudes a bold and intimidating presence.

Pricing and availability details for the new TMAX 560 in Japan and other markets have yet to be announced. In the UK, the 2023 TMAX 560 Tech Max is priced at £14,007, approximately $17,776 USD, making it a premium choice for those seeking a high-end scooter.
