Reports have emerged in Indonesian media that the 2016 Yamaha X-Max 250 cc scooter was showcased just before the screening of the Qatar MotoGP race on Indonesian TV recently. Rumours are rife that the maxi-scooter is due in the Indonesian market soon, as a range-topper to the 150 cc N-Max.

The 2016 Yamaha X-Max is a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled 249 cc scooter that has a power output of 20 hp and 21 Nm of torque. Available in Europe since 2014 with EFI and ABS, the Yamaha X-Max is marketed as a daily commuter alternative to a car.

Differing names have been put forward for the Indonesian X-Max, with one website calling it the “M-Max”. The 2016 Yamaha X-Max is not available in Malaysia, but retails in Britain for 4,499 pounds sterling (RM25,636), while the Yamaha N-Max 150 cc scooter retails locally for RM8,812. An alternative to the X-Max is the 2016 Kawasaki J300 scooter, which retails for RM31,489.
