Yamaha has increased the attractiveness of its XMax 300 maxi-scooter by introducing a 'SP' model for the Thai market. The Ohlins rear shocks are the most significant change to the scooter.
Yes, the scooter comes with blingy Swedish suspension components.
What is the financial impact of this particular model?
Without considering Indian taxes and tariffs, the price is 2,09,000 Thai Baht (Rs 4.70 lakh). That's a lot of money for a 300cc scooter, but it's still less than the Bayerische Motoren Werke Aktiengesellschaft (BMW) C 400 Grand tourer(GT) costs in India.
While the suspension change is still the main attraction, the XMax now comes in a new unique grey color that contrasts nicely with the red highlights and wheels. Red stitching is used on the seat cover as well, indicating the vehicle's sportier look.
Unfortunately, no changes to the engine tuning have been made; the 292cc liquid-cooled single continues to generate 27.6PS and 29Nm as before. It rides on the same 15-/14-inch wheels, with disc brakes on both ends to keep the bike in place. In addition, the 13-litre petrol tank should be plenty to fuel all of your travelling ambitions.
Unfortunately, the XMax 300 will not be available in India for the foreseeable future. We'll have to settle with the Aerox 155, which, to be honest, doesn't disappoint either. The Aerox, which is based on the R15, was the fastest scooter in our last performance scooters test, outperforming the Ather 450X and other 160cc scooters by a wide margin.
Royal Enfield has raised the prices of some of its popular bikes, including the Bullet 350 and Classic 350. The 350 Classic. This month's pricing increases also include the RE Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650.More
