“Comfortable easy & freedom. ”

Written on: 07/11/2013

I answered to a question, do you raccomand to a friend? My answer is no. Not because the scooter is not worht, but the yamaha UK costumer service is just awful. And it is a shame to say that . But that's how it is. I will suggest you to buy one, but a first issue will be a nightmare. But this scooter give me the freedom and independence every one need. Because the public transport is crub… Read Full Review

“Product of intelligent design.”

Written on: 15/08/2013 by Kochegarova (2 reviews written)

I'm a first time rider, just passed my CBT. Completed my test on a 100cc 4stroke Piagio, it had throttle lag, lack of graduation in the throttle and a rear drum brake that may have well not been there, not to mention unclear dials you couldn't read without ignoring the road ahead. I had already taken a leap of faith pre-CBT with Yamaha and purchased an XMAX 125 based on many favorable reviews with emphasis on reliability and build quality. I had some concerns in my own ability after the CBT… Read Full Review

Hi there

Excellent review. I currently own a Sym Jet 4 125cc and is brilliant although am looking to get something that will hold its value and get better mpg etc. Would you recommend this model then as I do approx the same amount of commuting a day and also 6ft 4in tall (but not well built). When you said Insurance 0% - no claims - what do you mean? Is the insurance really cheap?

Cheers

Written on: 28/10/2014

This is a great review, and is spot on.

I have a similar commute and would agree with the ride, quality and power.

It IS a big bike and compared to many scooters its huge. And its tall. Im 5'10" and it fits me fine but any shorter and I think it would be a lop-sided struggle with a foot down resting.

I purchased from Lamba Motors in Cheam and they have been great, no customer service issues at all. BOught it 2nd hand (1 year old) for £2.5k. Bargain.

Written on: 07/11/2013

OK First service 700 miles £100 no issues. Current mileage 1700 no issues to report, faultless. One observation, the scooter really responds to the fuel you put in it, the best I've found by some margin is Tesco's Premium Momemtum99, the difference in power gain is felt instantly, price/mile is about the same +/- negligible but for the power gain it's well worth it. The Yamaha is still by far the best purchase I've made in a long while, it continues to pay for itself. I've read some horror stories about Yamaha customer service when the bike does go wrong, it it ever does I'll be sure to post my findings, so far all I've had is very good customer service from West London Yamaha in Shepard's Bush, I'd definitely recommend them.

“xmax 2011”

Written on: 21/07/2011 by bilal-london (1 review written)

Hey guys, I am extremely pleased with my xmax,comfortable, lots of storage, very good balance, high top speed, i got 74 mph in a straight line, not down hill or wind behind me. went on the m25 with the girlfriend and was doing 75 mph at a steady 8500 rpm so not even in the red zone. full tank (11.8 litres) will do 250 miles without stretching, the reserve light comes on after 175 miles, so will do 75 miles extra on reserve. I am going on a road trip, 2500 miles of motorway with my dad, so will… Read Full Review

Hi there, can you comment a little more on the comfort please. I've read comments on this site about the XMax 250 suspension being very harsh! Is that true of the 125?

I have just ordered my 125 Xmax (black) for delivery 01 March 2011, and after test riding a similar model, I must say an all round great scooter, and for £ 3100 0% finance over two years, how can you even not think to buy this? I am very please by the "dashboard" speedo and rev meter,a nd alos a very informative screen with fuel guage and clock built in. I am about 16stone in weight, and this little number moves in teh traffic just as good as my Yamah Fazer 600. OBVIOUSLY a vast difference in… Read Full Review

I have owned over my life a number of motorcycles ,small to large, 750 honda.ten years have passed since then and was looking for something practical ,reliable well made and clean.the yamaha xmas 125 is a far cry from doing 0 to 60 mph in 2.8seconds. For a 125 it runs very well and surprised by its speed,cornering and general handling.All the commands are well located and of course the trunk is large and takes two helmets,great feature if you dont want to carry the helmet around.Its styling is… Read Full Review

“This is degfinitely a good looking scooter, no doubt. ”

Written on: 13/09/2010

This is degfinitely a good looking scooter, no doubt.

The good: looks, quality, under seat storage, immobiliser, cheap tax and mpg (I've monitored it like a hawk and am getting ~105 mpg without particularly trying!)

The bad: the seat is a little high (I'm 5' 8" and can't put my feet flat on the floor!), performance (I was expecting faster, although my last bike was a 600cc, so that might be a little unfair), only 3500 miles between services… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/02/2010

Excellent scooter for commuting. Very comfortable seat and riding position. It has lots of space under the seat and good wind protection for the face and hands. Good acceleration and a maximum speed of 75mph with the wind behind you. It feels very well built and corners well for a scooter.
If purchasing one second hand make sure it has the red master key… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/01/2010

Probably the worst bike I have owned. Electrical problems so bad I never knew if it was going to start in the morning! Back to the shop so many times, a new wiring loom, new brake light switches every 2 months... an appallingly bad scooter. Finally, the engine gave out after only 20,000 miles.

But, I am getting another and hoping that I just bought a lemon. A the end of the day, this bike is quite brilliant: fast, comfortable, efficient, great road presence and a great looking… Read Full Review

I have owned an et4 and suzuki uc 125 they were both good bikes to ride until I got the 125 xmax and wow it's a different story all together. I am 16 stone of muscle and this bike can carry me about with no problems, it feels more like I'm on a 250 if you are looking to buy a scooter get this one it's fantastic, I pulled back the throttle on the motorway and it easily got up to 70 and it didn't feel like a struggle. The fuel economy is amazing for such a large size bike. This is by far the best… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2008 by Tuckshop (1 review written)

Overall very happy with this my first bike, sorry scooter. Private sale 5 months old for a grand less than new. So much more comfortable, nippy and stable than the manual SN125 I did my test on. Gears are fine but for my stop start commute this is much easier going and you can concentrate on other road users movements. Will cruise at 65-70 without feeling like you're thrashing it. Plus the girlfriend seems happy on the big comfy seat! Was slightly concerned when heard of a recall to do with the… Read Full Review

Overall this is a great scooter and I would stick my neck out and say it's probably the best on the market. Having owned an Aerox, MBK Thunder and now this it is easily the best out of the three. Its great on the motorway or in traffic and has great fuel consumption. The immobilizer was a great little bonus. Really consider buying this when looking at a new scooter… Read Full Review

What an absolute dream to ride... short distance, long distance, in heavy traffic, on the open road. The Yamaha XMAX handles beautifully... in fact it's hard to believe that it's a scooter.... it's sleek, good looking, full of endurance (with a 12.5 l tank), gorgeous to handle and also practical and incredibly comfortable. If you're contemplating buying a new scooter... you need to seriously contemplate this one… Read Full Review
