The era of the maxi-scooter had arrived, and over the past decade the TMAX has gone on to become one of the most enduring and successful models ever created by Yamaha, with more than 200,000 units sold. During this period the model has undergone a series of major evolutionary changes that have kept it at the forefront of the maxi scooter market, and although many new competitors have arrived, the TMAX is still by far the best selling model in the category.

Yamaha’s research has shown that the TMAX inspires a high level of loyalty amongst its many thousands of owners, and each year a significant proportion of new sales are made to customers who are trading up from an older model TMAX. This unprecedented level of customer loyalty reflects the timeless and ongoing appeal of this model, and it reinforces Yamaha’s engineers’ commitment to ensuring that the needs and desires of our customers are the key target when any technical or stylistic change are introduced.
