Yamaha TMAX 560


Launched in 2001, the TMAX is the most successful sport scooter ever built and for 2020 Yamaha introduce its sportiest and most powerful model in the 20-year history of the Sport Scooter segment.

Driven by a more powerful 560cc engine and featuring a more dynamic and aggressive body design - together with revised suspension settings, the new TMAX takes performance to the next level.


Powerful 560cc Engine

Powerful 560cc Engine

The new TMAX gets a major boost in performance with the fitment of a more powerful larger-capacity 560cc, 2-cylinder engine that is equipped with new lightweight aluminium forged pistons and newly-designed con rods. Yamaha's engineers have increased the maximum power by 3.5% and maximum torque by 6%, and these figures translate into much stronger acceleration across the rev range.

Lightweight chassis

Lightweight chassis

At the heart of the TMAX 560 is a lightweight die-cast aluminium twin-spar frame, with optimised rigidity balance, that lets riders enjoy the full effect of the 560cc engine and CVT transmission.

New look

New look

Virtually every main body panel except the fairing and under cowl have undergone subtle yet significant changes for 2020. Yamaha's designers have respected the scooter's original proportions that project a sharp directional attitude towards the road, and at the same time have achieved a more agile look.

Sophisticated Suspension

Sophisticated Suspension

The new TMAX is equipped with the most sophisticated suspension in the sport scooter class, and features 41-mm upside down front forks with a premium black finish. These full-length motorcycle-type forks deliver sure-footed roadholding with precise steering, giving outstanding performance and comfort both in and out of the city.

Smartkey Keyless Ignition

Smartkey Keyless Ignition

Yamaha's 'Smart Key' keyless system allows TMAX riders to start the engine, unlock the seat and other compartments, and also lock or release the main stand as long as they're carrying the Smart Key.

TFT Instruments

TFT Instruments

Monotone TFT instruments feature a speedometer on the left side with a tachometer on the right, and the central display includes an odometer, two tripmeters, current fuel consumption and outside temperature. Traction Control System and D-MODE indicator lights are also featured.

Large Storage Space

Large Storage Space

The TMAX is equipped with a large illuminated underseat storage space that can accommodate 1 x full-face or 2 x jet helmets. The lockable and weatherproof compartment is also ideal for carrying a briefcase or other personal items.
