Dynamic new style and connectivity for Yamaha’s premium Sport Scooters
The dynamic MAX line never stands still, and one of the secrets to its remarkable success over the last 15 years is ongoing evolution – both technologically and stylistically.
For 2023 the new XMAX 300 Tech MAX comes with an even more dynamic look and feel to further underline its status as the ultimate mid-sized Sports Scooter that inspires a genuine and special pride of ownership. While being careful to retain its distinctive and much-loved MAX character, Yamaha’s styling designers have created all new bodywork with radically new lighting that fully engages and thrills the rider. Offering high levels of agility in urban traffic while also delivering a sporty riding experience with class-leading comfort, the new XMAX 300 Tech MAX is built to exceed the expectations of new and existing MAX owners.
Yamaha’s styling designers have focused on creating a whole new look with a more owing and tightly packed body that accentuates the machine’s outstanding sports character and manoeuvrability. Virtually every part of the XMAX 300 Tech MAX’s sleek and sporty exterior has been redesigned to create an even more impressive machine that offers the very best balance of performance, style, comfort, and functionality.
Changes are much more than skin deep, and XMAX 300 Tech MAX riders can now also benefit from smartphone connectivity and Garmin compatible navigation through the new multi-theme 4.2-inch colour TFT instruments – while the ride quality is refined, and the ownership experience is elevated with improvements to riding comfort, braking feel and overall finish.
Designed for those riders who desire a high specification together with outstanding value, the XMAX 300 ‘standard’ model benefits from the all-new body design seen on the premium XMAX 300 Tech MAX – and is equipped for 2023 with an all-new 4.3-inch LCD screen with smartphone connectivity.
The XMAX 300 Tech MAX is equipped with one of the most impressive dashboards to be found on any Sport Scooter. This comprehensive instrumentation features an all-new high-tech 4.2-inch colour multi-theme TFT infotainment display that gives the rider smartphone connectivity, and the screen can also function as an onboard navigation system.
The built-in Communication Control Unit (CCU) enables Bluetooth connectivity between the scooter and the user’s smartphone. Once Yamaha’s free MyRide app is downloaded – and the device is paired with the machine – a range of functions can be accessed.
The 4.2-inch colour TFT display is able to receive messages, emails and notifications which can appear on the display – music can be played and various other smartphone functions can be activated, making each ride a unique and more engaging experience. A wide range of other information and services can be accessed, including volume, weather, language, machine, and riding information, and much more.
Separate 3.2-inch LCD speedometer
A 3.2-inch LCD speedometer is located above the new 4.2-inch TFT display and provides easy-to-read information that is detached from the infotainment screen for added clarity. Keeping the speedometer separate enables the rider to switch functions on the multi-theme TFT while still being able to always see the speed and other important running data, regardless of which screen is selected on the new TFT meter.
After installing the Garmin StreetCross app on their smartphone and connecting to the XMAX 300 Tech MAX’s CCU, riders can utilise the Garmin navigation on the 4.2-inch colour TFT infotainment screen. This sophisticated system enables searches by location name and various other methods via the smartphone.
Once the route is set the rider can zoom in and out using handlebar switches. Garmin StreetCross app provides real-time traffic information as well as speed limits, destination air temperature, distance remaining and the estimated time of arrival – as well as information about possible hazards such as upcoming sharp corners.
* The navigation app will not be available in some countries. Information on speed limits, traffic, etc., is not provided in some countries and regions. Speed limit data may also not be updated in a timely manner and speed limits may change depending on the time of day, such as in school zones or around construction sites.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
