Not daring to venture into the of the ‘king’ Yamaha TMAX 530 they deem too expensive and too even they admit the 400 a intermediate in the scooter range three forks, a machine a mechanical faster than the 250 and especially a stronger unique style.

This attractive look is perfectly in tune Japanese, as in Kymco also The single cylinder of the X – Max is the least of this comparison, but thanks to its it is however the most vivid at up. With this heart in a rigid chassis, suspended by elements, particularly in the back, Yam shown precision.

The athlete is in town

In town, we appreciate the X-Max 400 for his agility. The driving on the front position if adapted to mode here reinforces the and as it shows a homogeneous distribution of its and is also a very good it seemed most at ease in field.

For this model to Yamaha has treated its practical with a safe enough to two full-face helmets while the Xciting also sports, can only one. Opening the Yamaha is nothing annoying. It indeed turn the key switch one hand and lift the saddle on the

However, the X-Max has two pockets which is certainly less the Piaggio X10 350 which has three, but still better than the who did this one.
