Neat presentation. The Tmax 2020 enjoys very beautiful finishes to match its price. 4-piston radial calipers (golden on Tech Max), pretty aluminum protection at the exhaust manifold, qualitative upholstery, LED indicators better integrated in front: the Yamaha scooter presents well.

Not so convenient. A USB connection would be more practical because it would be more universal than the 12V socket installed in the storage compartment, while backlit stems and a color screen would not be too much in this price range. !

Ergonomics. Like many maxi-scooters, the Tmax is very wide: the result is that a 1.75m rider puts one foot flat on one side but a point on the other. A bit tight to handle when stationary its 218 kg (220 for the Tech Max). The little ones will tend to find themselves sitting on the saddle opening and fuel door buttons on the front of the saddle..

Ergonomics bis. MNC also regrets the lack of length of the horizontal steps, on which size 43 boots barely find their place: the reverse of the increase in engine capacity? Its topstitched saddle, however, offers space and comfort, with correct lumbar support provided by the backrest.

More fishing. This improvement amounts to "+ 3.5%" in power and "+ 6%" in torque, or 47.6 hp and 55.7 Nm against 46 hp and 53 Nm in 2019. Tmax remains below the necessary threshold to be accessible to A2 permits. The belt transmission reduction is also changing to gain even more fishing.

Fatty ?! At 218 kg, the Tmax takes 5 kg with its 15 liters of gasoline! This increase is explained by the increase in displacement, the larger catalytic system (Euro5) and its enlarged radiator (+ 6%). Fortunately, the exhaust pipes are refined and that new forged pistons come to contain the overweight !
