Abandon All Preconceived Notions.
XP500 TMAX. Combining a 500cc twin cylinder engine with a high tech aluminium chassis and brakes and suspension last seen on a sports bike makes for a riding experience you wont forget in a hurry.
Simply put, TMAX defies categorisation. But well try Its a dynamic maxiscooter thats part commuter and part sportsbike. A compact aluminium frame is made of the same CF (Controlled Fill) die cast construction as our supersport racers for impeccable handling.
Meanwhile, sporty three-spoke alloy wheels, fat rubber and powerful twin front disc brakes give this streetfighter plenty of punch.
And with plush rider and pillion surrounds including a high screen, plenty of under-seat storage area for a helmet and briefcase, and all the relevant diagnostics at a glance, TMAX can be the perfect gent.
One that offers taste, sophistication, and 0-100kph in around 7.5 seconds.
DOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder, 499cc parallel twin, liquid-cooled, four stroke engine offers great low-and mid-speed torque and strong passing acceleration.
V-belt transmission means no gears or manual clutch. Just a smooth, seamless acceleration from idle to motorway speed and the stability of engine braking when you roll off.
Abundantly suited to life in the city, TMAX has all the convenience and luxury features youd expect, like, engine immobiliser, parking brake and ample underseat storage.
Aluminium frame uses the same compact CF (Controlled Fill) die casting as our supersport racers, allowing our engineers to accurately balance rigidity and flexibility in the areas where it matters most.
High-spec suspension, 4-piston monobloc dual front brakes and sporty hollow design three-spoke alloy wheels shod with fat rubber.
Lubrication is via a semi-dry-sump system with an oil cooler for longer engine life.
Continuously variable transmission connects engine power to the wet multiplate centrifugal clutch via a durable double-cog-type rubber V-belt.
Pivot coaxial drive shaft allows use of a swingarm separate from the powerplant for excellent handling.
