Blurring the boundaries between scooter and motorcycle - a super sport automatic fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, four-valve per cylinder engine boasts, controlled-fill, die-cast aluminum frame, 43 mm front forks,4-piston caliper dual front disc brakes, and rear disc brake. Plus a multifunction instrumentation with speedometer and tachometer and radical sports styling and fuel economy up to an estimated 47 mpg with a fuel tank that holds 4 gallons.

Key Features
  • Fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, four-valve-per-cylinder engine boasts forged pistons, carburized connecting rods, and ceramic-composite plated cylinders. The TMAX has a 11.0:1 compression ratio; upswept muffler canister; CF die-cast aluminum frame; 43mm front forks; 4-piston mono-block caliper dual front disc brakes; rear disc brake; aluminum die cast wheels with radial H-rated tires; fully featured multifunction instrumentation with speedometer and tachometer; and radical new sports styling; with those credentials, it's no wonder TMAX is the Super Sport Scooter.
  • Horizontally positioned 499cc parallel twin, with reciprocating balancer, offers plenty of smooth power, enough for two-up touring at highway speeds. Configuration helps keep weight low in frame for mass centralization.
  • Luxury scooter appointments include a double glove box in the streamlined front apron, a position-adjustable operator backrest, a storage box under the seat spacious enough for a large full-face helmet, and the excellent wind and weather protection that comes from the TMAX's floorboard/ apron/windshield configuration.
  • Continuously variable transmission connects engine power to the wet multiplate centrifugal clutch via a durable double-cog-type rubber V-belt. Silent chain efficiently transfers power to the rear wheel. This proven system, combined with TMAX's ample power, gives a whole new meaning—and adrenaline level—to twist-and-go throttle operation.
  • The TMAX achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 47 mpg* with a fuel tank that holds 4 gallons of gas.
Engine Features
  • DOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder, 499cc parallel twin, liquid-cooled engine is horizontally mounted and performance engineered with forged pistons, carburized connecting rods and ceramic composite plated cylinders for plenty of tractable power. Also includes a horizontally opposed reciprocating balancer for uncommon smoothness.
  • 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.
