Yamaha Motor Releases Sporty Scooter NMAX from Indonesia, Global model equipped with newly-developed BLUE CORE engine

IWATA, January 26, 2015 – Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. (Tokyo:7272) will launch the NMAX – a new sporty scooter – in Indonesia from February 2015. The new model features a body that is reminiscent of the MAX series, which has been popular in Europe since its release in late 2000, as well as a newly-developed 155cc liquid-cooled engine based on the BLUE CORE concept.

Manufacturing is being undertaken by Indonesian group company PT. Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing. The NMAX has been developed both as a global model and a leading force for business scale expansion as set out in Yamaha Motor’s new medium-term management plan (2013-2015). Therefore, the new model is also developed with the global market in mind, including ASEAN and developed countries.

The NMAX comes as a new face to the MAX series, which already has an expansive lineup led by the 530cc TMAX, followed by the XMAX in 400cc, 250cc, and 125cc configurations. The new model was developed with the concept “Global Prestige City Commuter” and inherits the DNA of the MAX series, with sporty handling and styling while combining practicality.

Main features include: 1) new liquid-cooled engine developed based on the BLUE CORE concept, with VVA (Variable Valve Actuation), 2) lightweight and high-rigidity frame that supports sharp and sporty handling, 3) 13-inch tire that is specially developed for this model to help provide natural handling, 4) ABS to support sporty performance (the first ASEAN scooter model to be equipped with the system), and 5) unique styling reminiscent of the MAX series.
