2022 Yamaha NMax 155 Introduced; Possible India Launch

The main features of this update are a new rear monoshock and a traction control system.

Yamaha has just released the updated NMax 155 scooter in China, which is based on the Aerox 155. Yamaha Motor India is considering bringing the more traditionally styled NMax 155 maxi-scooter to our shores, following the success of the Aerox 155 in our market.

Engine and Chassis of The New Yamaha NMax 155

The same VVA-equipped, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 155cc engine that powers the Aerox produces 15hp and 13.8Nm of torque in the NMax. The front suspension is handled by a telescopic fork, while the rear suspension is handled by a new preload-adjustable gas-charged monoshock.

A 230mm disc in the front and back, as well as dual-channel ABS, are in charge of braking duties. Ground clearance is 125mm, which is significantly less than the 145mm on the Aerox 155. The NMax’s wheels are also smaller, measuring 13 inches as opposed to the Aerox’s 14-inchers.

While the two vehicles have similar underseat storage capacities, the NMax has the option of adding a large 39-litre top box accessory. The NMax tips the scales at 131kg when the 7.1-litre (5.5-litre on the Aerox) fuel tank is full, making it 4kg heavier than the Aerox.

Features of The Yamaha NMax 155

The introduction of a Traction Control system, which is likely to be similar to the system on the R15 V4 because they both share the same engine, is the most significant addition to the features list. While some may question its utility on a 15 horsepower scooter, it is undeniable that it will be a useful safety feature.

The new Yamaha NMax gets an LED headlamp with twin low beam chambers flanked by LED DRLs, as well as a separate high beam housing. Although the taillight is an LED, the indicators are traditional halogen bulbs. In addition, the NMax features a fully digital instrument cluster with MyRide app functionality and Bluetooth connectivity, which displays email, call, and text alerts as well as the battery level on your smartphone.

A weatherproof pocket with a USB socket is located inside the front apron and can be used to charge your phone while on the go. It can also be used to store any other small items that need to be protected from the elements. Another useful feature on the NMax is the Start/Stop function, which helps save fuel by shutting down the engine at traffic lights – something that will come in handy with today’s sky-high fuel prices.

The Launch of The New Yamaha NMax 155 in India

When we spoke with Yamaha India chairman Eishin Chihana earlier this month, he said that the NMax’s launch would be dependent on the Aerox’s success in our market. Despite its limited availability through Blue Square dealerships only, the Aerox has carved out a niche for itself since its launch, performing consistently month after month. The NMax could be a good fit for the traditional Indian scooter buyer who values practicality above all else. It combines practicality with a high level of performance, style, and features.
