Yamaha TMAX 560 (2020 onwards)

The Yamaha TMAX 560 is a modern maxi-scooter that has more features than some cheaper cars. It comes with a large, comfortable seat, under which you will find a storage area for one full-face helmet. There is a 7-inch color TFT dash with two rider modes (Tour and Sport) and they work really well. Other than that, you will also get an ABS system and traction control with the bike.

As most other maxi-scooters, the TMAX 560 is equipped with a large screen designed to block wind at higher speeds. And, because the bike can reach speeds of up to 115 miles per hour, you will be glad to have one!

The Yamaha TMAX 560 might seem too expensive compared to most motorcycles in the category, but it is an incredibly well-designed machine. Not only will you be able to ride around town, but you can also tour on this bike, or even take it to a track…

But, the best thing about this bike is that it is fully A2 legal!
