The new generation of MAX has arrived. Yamaha Motor Philippines, Inc. offers the new NMAX which has been the talk of the town this year. The official launch of the newest product was the first-ever augmented premiere set in the Yamaha Rev Stadium, the virtual space for customers to enjoy the special digital presentation of Yamaha. The new NMAX is powered by a refined 155cc engine, a liquid-cooled, 4-stroke SOHC, single-cylinder, 4-valve fuel-injected engine with CVT, and VVA. The bore and stroke deliver excellent power and torque characteristics. A new cylinder head and a compact combustion chamber achieve a higher compression ratio that boosts combustion efficiency. It also optimizes the coolant pathway to improve reliability.
Carrying the MAX DNA, this model features additional functions making it the best partner for every rider with a combination of luxurious styling and sporty performance. The NMAX adopts a 6-bulb LED headlight design. Four lights on the top row are for low beam, the two lights below for high beam. The rear stylish tail light shows off the MAX series DNA with a unique three-dimensional design. The Smart Key System, when detected, enables the rider to start the machine using the main switch knob without needing to insert the key. It is equipped with the multifunction full digital speedometer for bigger and easy-to-read LCD instruments that include a bar-type fuel gauge, speedometer, clock, and fuel economy data. For additional convenience, a 12V Electric power socket is in the left-hand storage pocket for charging digital devices. While the right-side storage pocket comes with a waterproof lid and can fit a large 7–8-inch smartphone or tablet.
On top of the new features, the new NMAX has improved functions. It has an ABS as standard to give you more controllable braking power with a 230mm front and rear disc for smooth braking. The handlebar switch control has a convenient lever-style switch that allows the rider to cycle through displayed data. The Maxi seat design with a two-level seat provides comfort & plenty of space for both the rider and passenger.
The multifunction big luggage is enough to fit an XL Full Face Helmet, with a 23.3L capacity. The hinge that opens and closes the seat has two springs so that after unlocking with an easy-to-access button, the seat opens slowly and naturally. The 7.1L Fuel Tank is conveniently located inside the center tunnel and can be opened via a button press with refueling done without needing to open the seat. It also includes the Smart Motor Generator. It doubles as a starter motor which eliminates the need for a separate conventional starter. This brings quiet engine starts and re-starts; and has a lighter and compact design.
