2016 Yamaha yp250 xmax
Very clean scooter
Loads of power
Loads of storage space
Finance is available
Yamaha’s X-Max 250 has been a big hit for the firm and during its 12 year lifespan (which includes two small updates, one in 2010 and again in 2013, which was a bit more involved) it has sold in very respectable numbers throughout Europe, peaking at 19,232 in 2007. A bike that populates city centres, the X-Max might not be that flashy, however what it offers is lightweight, practical and cheap commuting in a scooter with a known and trusted brand name on its tank. Or more precisely its fairing as the tank is hidden under it somewhere.
Yamaha’s profilation of this bike
At the weekend this premium sports scooter is built to perform. And when it´s time to go back to work on a Monday morning the X-MAX 250 is one of the most efficient ways to beat the traffic.

Power and torque
The X-Max is a fairly small capacity and pretty basic single cylinder motor so you can’t expect a great deal from it. Producing a claimed 20.1bhp with 15.5lb-ft of torque it has enough oomph to zip away from lights and hit an indicated top speed of 78mph (after quite a run-up – downhill) but this is effectively a solo-only bike and the extra weight of a pillion really makes it struggle. The Yamaha’s lack of power means you need to be careful when pulling into fast moving traffic as it doesn’t quite have that instant acceleration you often need to nip into a gap.

Engine, gearbox and exhaust
Due to its fairly basic nature the single cylinder motor is very reliable but owners report the standard exhaust is prone to rusting as it gets a bit hot, so watch out for holes. A replacement is fairly cheap as well as better built so it isn’t a huge issue as long as the studs aren’t too badly corroded. The engine should be serviced every 6000 miles but by now most will be well past this and owners often do it themselves rather than pay a dealer as it is a pretty easy job. The plug needs changing every 18,000 miles alongside the valve clearances being checked however the engine oil is inspected when the oil change light comes on (every 1800 miles), which is handy. Yamaha state the V-belt needs swapping at the 12,000-mile mark, which is a bit more complicated and often gets missed so ask when it was last changed.General information
