Yamaha X-MAX 400, test (conclusions and photo gallery)

In the first part of the test, some readers commented that the new Yamaha X-MAX 400 it could become a sales killer for the Yamaha T-MAX 530. The truth is that it is possible since in addition to the rather large price difference, you have to take into account the biggest expense which involves maintaining a two-cylinder engine with all that this entails (belt, wheels, brakes, etc).

It is clear that if you are not one of those of "big horse, walk or not walk", the Yamaha X-MAX 400 perfectly meets the objectives, as we have seen. It is powerful enough, agile and with a good load capacity.

To access the gap under the seat of the Yamaha X-MAX 400We do it from the ignition lock itself, as is usual. However, we detect a small problem in its operation: the seat does not have a spring so that when you press the lock, it remains open.

In this way, when the key is released, the seat closes again. It therefore obliges us to pull the seat when we open it and if we have something in hand to put it down because if not, we will not be able to lift the seat. I do not know if it was a failure of this unit or it is something of all Yamaha X-MAX 400 but in that case, it is not comfortable at all.

The helmets are located, one at the front and one at the rear. The hole for the two helmets it is relative because my Schuberth did not enter correctly. Only by forcing the seat close. On the other hand, and as it happened with other Yamaha models, the separation between the front and back of the hole for the seat prevents us from putting a backpack.

As we already mentioned, ahead we have two glove boxes. The left with a key lock and the right divided into two compartments. Its opening and closing is comfortable although the lids give the impression of being a bit delicate.

Having carried out a very short test in time, we could not measure consumption data so we cannot give you a figure. For reference, l a Yamaha Majesty 400 consumes just over 4.5 l / 100, being heavier and a little less powerful. This figure could be good and differs by more than a liter and a half from the T-MAX, another point to consider.

Finally, the price. The Yamaha X-MAX 400 has a sale price of 5,799 euros, which seems to me quite adjusted for the benefits it offers as well as the quality that we have observed. It maintains that step with respect to the competition in price but that is quickly appreciated when you approach it.
