To understand the Morphous, you really to know about Honda’s So go and read that article if you familiar with the Helix.

so now that we’re all familiar the Helix, it should be obvious Yamaha’s Morphous is a clear to that cult classic Honda attempted to replace the in 2001 with the somewhat Reflex. but that scooter the spirit of the Helix and buyers few. Fans worldwide to have the Helix back, a Honda granted for 2003 the Reflex continued to sell

For 2006, Yamaha stepped in the Morphous to push the ‘long and concept beyond where left off. Like the Yamaha equipped this with an actual trunk. even gave this a similar digital gauge Yamaha did one heck of a job with scooter, which its too bad this scooter only lasted years on the USA market.

It lasted just one year in Canada. Maybe it was just too kinda like the how the Helix was initially and actually cut from the USA twice.

Overseas the Morphous is by Yamaha as the Maxam. It was first as a concept scooter in 2005 and worldwide as a production scooter in It remains on sale in some markets as a 2012.

Yamaha has shown a ‘Maxam 3000’ scooter in recent years is far longer and wider than the Maxam. The Maxam 3000 slated for production, but the concept is a 3 meters long (118 which is 15” more the regular Morphous/Maxim. Picture a Caddy on two wheels.


In addition to the futuristic the Morphous also comes a high tech engine 20.1 HP @ 7500 RPM. The in this maxi-scoot is a slick injected, DOHC, liquid 4-valve, 4-… engine. means awesome fuel (60mpg) and good power a 250cc scooter).

The top speed of the is 75, which means you can hold own on the freeway. The Morphous is faster the board than Honda’s offerings (Reflex, Big Ruckus).

and Amenities

Yamaha didn’t out on the engine and they didn’t

out on the other aspects of this either. The Morphous has an awesome headlight, LED blinkers and taillights and a glowing blue ring the key hole. The braking is top notch thanks to disc brakes in the and rear. Storage is another point for the Morphous. As shown, the has both a decent sized and a moderate storage under the AND there’s also a generous in the dash.

Obviously there is plenty of for all your stuff. as long as stuff doesn’t include a face helmet. Unfortunately of these three storage is large enough to swallow a face helmet. You can stuff a lid or 3/4 helmet (shown above) in the underseat storage and trunk but area will accommodate a full face helmet.

So what’s not to like? Besides the it or hate it styling. not much. The knocks against the Morphous are the and power.

The former is more of a piece than a functional one and that really affects the While not the fault of the Morphous, scooters are borderline for

interstate use and the 20.1 HP doesn’t beat the average. If you have long trips planned then you prefer one of the larger 300cc that have come out (ie. Honda Forza. Downtown 300i)

Overseas the (CP250) has a huge aftermarket The scene is focused on style than power) but lots of out there for whatever direction you to take the Morphous. The Japanese (Maxam) is one of the hottest scooters in the JDM where it remains on sale.

There are quite a few 250cc out there, but not so many that touring like the Morphous The most similar modern are the Kymco Grandvista 250 and its replacement, the 200i / 300i. The latter of two scooters is a particularly nice machine that has a little oomph (30HP) than the if you opt for the 300i version (298cc).
