Hong Leong Yamaha has confirmed the price of the 2016 Yamaha NMax scooter as RM8,812. This 155 cc liquid-cooled, SOHC four-valve single with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) scooter, running through a CVT gearbox with belt final drive, was launched in Genting Highlands last January.

Designed as Yamaha’s “global scooter model”, and using Yamaha’s “Bluecore” engine, this scooter is targetted at the young, urban market. The NMax’s engine is good for 14.8 hp and torque is claimed at 14.4 Nm at 6,000 rpm. ABS will not be included on the CKD NMax, but braking will still be with 230 mm diameter discs front and rear. Fuel injection will ensure optimum power and peak fuel efficiency.

The official price of the 2016 Yamaha NMax is RM8,812 after GST, without road tax and insurance, and will be available after April 2016. This places it well under its class competitor, the Honda PCX 150, which retails for RM11,990.
