T-Max 500 is Yamaha's innovative thinking at its very best, the first super scooter to combine the comfort and convenience of a scooter with the high performance and sharp handling of a sports bike. T-Max 500 is the best of both worlds, ideal for commuting with its in-town manoeuvrability, easy riding nature and fully automatic transmission, yet perfect for long distance inter-city travel or summer touring to distant destinations. Whatever it's doing, T-Max's sporting nature adds fun, challenge and excitement. With new ABS-equipped T-Max 500A, there are higher than ever levels of safety too.

T-Max is fully equipped for its multiple roles, starting with its dual front disc brakes which offer both the power and control needed for true sports riding, and on T-Max 500ABS these have the additional back-up of Yamaha's advanced ABS anti-lock braking system, ensuring maximum safety in all conditions. The effortlessly powerful twin-cylinder, 499cc engine provides enough performance for all types of road, from steep mountain climbs to high speed motorways. The balance shaft gives it a smooth, sophisticated feel, while the rear suspension has a motorcycle-style independent swingarm for the highest ride quality and maximum cornering control.

T-Max's twin headlight design not only gives it its characterful, purposeful look, it also provides high visibility for seeing and being seen, night or day. Despite its sporting credentials, T-Max offers a big underseat storage capacity as well as luggage space in the front bodywork section. Its convenience even extends to a parking brake.
