The Yamaha XMAX 300 is a highly-practical maxi scooter that is perfect for everyday commuting. The bike is much larger and more comfortable than a regular scooter, but it somehow feels extremely light and agile.

It features a large underseat storage area and medium-sized screen that will protect you from wind and other elements. On top of that, you will get an ABS and traction control with this bike.

Without a doubt, the Yamaha XMAX 300 is a fantastic motorcycle that offers a great value for money. Not only is it affordable to buy, but it also comes with a reliable engine and outstanding fuel economy. You will get a whopping 80 miles per gallon out of this bike!

The only downside is the suspension, which feels way too stiff at times.
