For 2022, the TMAX has been radically uprated with a best-in-class 7-inch colour TFT screen with full smartphone connectivity – enabling you to keep in touch on every ride. Full-map Garmin Navigation* makes sure you get there on time – and with a heated seat, heated grips, electric screen and cruise control, you can enjoy business class comfort through the year.
The newest TMAX Tech MAX also comes with an all-new compact body with a longer seat and footboards that give an even more comfortable ride. Its aggressive new face and aerodynamic front wings project a supersport-inspired look, taking the TMAX Tech MAX one step closer to the motorcycle world. And premium components and a class-leading finish confirm what you probably already knew about this iconic machine.

POWERFUL 560CC ENGINE
The powerful 560cc engine features a unique and compact design that uses a 360 degree crank with a horizontally opposed reciprocating piston balancer for extremely sporty performance together with a high-efficiency CVT drive system for outstandingly smooth running. And to heighten your riding excitement the carefully designed intake and exhaust systems produce a deep and pure ‘tuned' sound that is distinctively TMAX Tech MAX!
The TMAX Tech MAX's compact motorcycle-type die-cast aluminium chassis features a twin spar layout that gives immense strength combined with a low weight. The powerful 560cc engine is mounted directly into the frame to give excellent mass centralisation – and for sportier and more precise handling performance the suspension settings are revised. New ultra-lightweight Spin Forged wheels to reduce the unspring mass are fitted with newly developed Bridgestone tyres.
For an ever sportier ride with a higher level of rider and passenger comfort the new TMAX Tech MAX is equipped with a longer seat and extended footboards, and the rider's backrest gives 30mm of front/rear movement. The TMAX Tech MAX's slimmer waist gives improved leg reach to the ground, and the shape of the new forged aluminium handlebars contributes towards a slightly more forward leaning position for improved feedback.
Operated by a simple joystick, the sophisticated new connected full-colour 7-inch TFT screen features a choice of three display styles. Through Yamaha's MyRide App you can access MyRide – Link that enables the connection with the vehicle, giving access to your smartphone for music, weather, calls** and notifications. Full-map Garmin Navigation* makes every journey easier – while texts can be displayed when your TMAX Tech MAX is parked.
Take one look at the new face and you'll know that this could only ever be TMAX Tech MAX! Its slimmer dual headlights with integrated flashers give a more aggressive look, while the new projector design with a mono-focus lens generates a powerful beam. And to emphasise this iconic sport scooter's dynamic new looks there's an all-new taillight featuring a T-shaped design with integrated flashers.
SMARTKEY KEYLESS IGNITION
Using your TMAX Tech MAX is so convenient with the Smart Key in your pocket – and the newly designed 2-button backlit main switch is simpler than ever to use. This keyless technology enables you to start the engine, unlock the seat and release the centre stand easily and quickly – and you can even unlock the stylish new flush fitting aero-style fuel cap.
The new TMAX Tech MAX is equipped with a state-of-the-art Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) for the finest level of engine controllability – and for improved feeling and reduced weight a new fly-by-wire Accelerator Position Sensor Grip (APSG) is fitted. The traction control system helps prevent rear wheel slip when accelerating on wet or loose surfaces – and D-MODE allows you to select smooth or sporty engine performance.
Cruise control is a standard feature on the TMAX Tech MAX, and enables you to relax on longer rides, and also serves as a useful way to stay under the speed limit. The system works in conjunction with the YCC-T Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle and can be selected at speeds of 50 kph and above.
ELECTRICALLY ADJUSTABLE SCREEN
The newly styled adjustable windscreen features a centre air intake duct that contributes towards the increased level of comfort by reducing pressure on your upper body, especially at higher speeds. This new design also ensures better acoustics when you're using a smartphone linked to the 7-inch TFT full-colour display, and the TMAX Tech MAX screen can be adjusted electrically using a handlebar mounted switch.
