Yamaha is preparing to unveiled a maxi-scooter called the X-Max 400 for the European market. The X-Max family is quite popular in Europe because of its excellent combination of sporty and sophisticated style, riding dynamics, handling and performance.
The new 2013 Yamaha X-Max 400 is a high class maxi-scooter which is built to bring new levels of performance, quality and design to the street.
The 2013 X-Max 400 is the latest and the most powerful model from Yamaha’s X-Max family. It is powered by the same 395cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder 4-stroke DOHC 4-valve engine as the popular Majesty 400, but has been tweaked a bit to produce a total output of 31 hp at 7500 rpm and 25 ft-lb. at 6000 rpm (down from 33 hp at 7000 rpm and 27 ft-lb. at 6000 rpm), making it the most powerful X-MAX ever. The X-Max 400 has a top speed of 150km/h top speed.
The 2013 Yamaha X-Max 400 weighs 465 pounds, 20 pounds less than the Yamaha Majesty, thanks to its compact and lightweight chassis which Yamaha claims is the lightest and most compact in its class.
Visually, the X-Max 400’s sporty and sophisticated new bodywork was influenced by the X-MAX and TMAX models. It features tall fairing and windscreen, the roomy footboard area and stepped dual seat with huge storage space for two full-face helmets under it, car-style instruments, LED lighting both front and rear, 3.7-gallon fuel tank, telescopic fork and dual-spring rear suspension.
The 2013 X-Max 400 maxi-scooter has a 15-inch front wheel complete with dual front brake discs, and 13-inch wheel at rear. Numerous accessories for X-Max 400 include Akrapovic slip-on mufflers, screens, topcases, seats, legshields, and so on.
The 2013 Yamaha X-Max 400 will hit European showrooms in May in three different color options: Absolute White, Matt Gray and Midnight Black, with the ABS-equipped version of the X-Max 400 is expected to follow later this year. In UK, the X-Max 400 is priced at £5399 (US$8301), making it cheaper than the £6,399 Yamaha Majesty.
