The 2020 Yamaha N-Max 155 is powered by a 155cc, liquid-cooled SOCH engine.
Yamaha recently rolled out the N-Max 155 scooter in the Indonesian market and is speculated to lift the curtain in India in the 2020 Auto Expo. The sleek yet edgy design, peppy engine, decent power output technology and a list of endless features leave us without a doubt that Yamaha has outdone themselves yet again.
The Yamaha N-Max 155 has a conventional sporty scooter look with slights tweaks that are signature to the Yamaha design, the most significant being the 2-piece side panel finish. At the epicenter is an LCD screen that displays a plethora of features that come along with the ‘Yamaha Motorcycle Connect System’ which enables Bluetooth connectivity with the scooter. These not only include the conventional phone and messaging services along with maps but also updates the rider with information such as parking location, maintenance record and fuel consumption and malfunction notifications.
The 2020 Yamaha N-Max 155 is powered by a 155cc, liquid-cooled SOCH engine which comes with a fuel injection system producing 15.3 PS power at 8000 RPM and a maximum torque of 13.9 Nm at 6500 RPM. The dual disk braking system may also come with an optional dual-channel ABS. Suspension is achieved by twin telescopic forks and the rear wheels get a twin-sided, gas-charged spring system. The N-Max also borrows the Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) technology from the high-end Yamaha motorcycles for consistence performance and fuel efficiency across the rev range.
Yamaha may integrate impressive features like start-stop function, keyless ignition hazard lights and electric power sockets in the scooter. The manufacturers might integrate additional smart motor-generator and a traction control system which will be something to look forward to.
The 2020 Yamaha N-Max 155 shares a lot of looks and design components from the Suzuki Burgman 125 but in terms of performance and an inexhaustible list of features, the two are generations apart. It can be expected to bring new levels of refinement in the sporty scooter segment with the Aprilia also being a worthy rival. The jump from 110cc scooters clearly indicates that Yamaha has big plans from the segment and also hope to dominate it.
The 2020 Yamaha N-Max 155 can be expected to be priced around Rs. 1 lakh (ex-showroom).
