    ...don't get me wrong, i'm on the scooter hunt too , the TMAX/XMAX looks the part and certainly i have considered its ownership but for that kind of money on TMAX (maybe less 3-5K off for XMAX...i think the Taiwanese brand earn its position today not that they skim on the quality as they are well built too...



    I'd like to point out that the reason why people buy scooter is the same as why people drive auto-gear cars VS manual. Scooters with their twist-and-go ease, and additional underseat storage space (though most will still add a top box) is really an asset for city riding. I personally ride a Yamaha Majesty 400 and am loving the ride everyday. The T-Max goes a step further in not only providing the convenience, but also the performance to make it a thrilling ride with its useable power of 49bhp on a daily basis. I mean with stop-start traffic, how much power can you put on the road?

    X-Max 400 for Class 2A market. T-Max for Class 2 market. Can't really compare.

    Went down to Looi's today.Was quoted 18k with a standard exhaust by the uncle.To change to the akrapovic exhaust,add another 1.5k.Quite steep i must say.But what to do?Since they are the only company that bring in this model.

    IMO Hong Leong was right not to bring the MAX 400. The looks do not warrant such a price tag.

    Soooooooooooo expensive for a scooter like that. Is the speedo in kmph?

    BTW I'm sure there are other parallel importers that can bring in the XMAX as well. But the price might be the similar. I'm seriously considering the TMAX530 instead.

    Not sure if it's in km or miles...
    Agreed,for that price,u can get a bigger cc bike.Not sure that 18k is inclusive of COE.If it's does,i would say,it's still ok for it's exclusivity and rareness on the S'pore rd.Hopefully it does....just my wishful thinking.Will enquire again.

    Went down last Sat.

    Wanna ask to open up seat compartment to have an actual Look & Feel.
    Upstairs have 1 Mr lee say no key, say downstairs demo set have keys to open.
    Went downstairs. Pinoy lady say, here no key .... immediately look away after saying that.

    Immediately after her reply. I also immediately walk off.

    It is with reserved compliments even after major revamping of the whole operations.

    I went down to looi's last sat with my cheque book ready. Check out the x max ,not too bad. There's a yellow kymco xciting 400 park side by side with the x max. Both look gorgeous. I was wandering around there for 15mins,no staff bother to entertain me or even have the courtesy to ask me whether do i need any help. So i just walked out of the shop and drove straight to kymco agent and got myself a xciting 400 hahahaha

    It's frustrating that many businesses in Singapore still do not realize the importance of good customer experience. Everybody is selling "apples" now. We as customers, have lots of choices on where to buy our "apples". The shop that makes us feel happy and willing to part with our money, will get our business.

    Congratulations on your new scooter man. I guess the Kymco has a more attractive pricing?

    oh yeah yohji,the pricing is indeed very attractive compare to the x max. The xciting 400 build quality is good,very european feel ,i personally feel its value for money. Im getting it as a weekend ride becoz i normally drive to work. Backside itchy lah,guess once a biker,always a biker!

    well done!!!!
    Price that is more competitive and of course more support on parts and servicing nonetheless.
    The whole fuel system is from Keihin which builts for all Jap scoots.
    Some reference if needed

    Quality has leapfrog since....

    If i could change, i would have gotten one ^_^

    I took a look at it in Looi's today. Massive underseat, perfect seating position for me (1.72m). Did not ask the price as I'm not looking to get a new ride, but definitely something to look at in the future.

    I think comparing this Jap to the Kym, assuming quality is similar, its a question of whether want to pay more for purchase price followed by affordable spares or low purchase price but high cost of spares. Riding over 8-10yrs, the Kym prob will still cost a couple of grand less than the Jap.

    If ur already on silverwing, no need change lah. Jap yen still inflated. PI exclusive with no AD support bound to have more mark up.

    The last 2 units @ Looi's is still stuck at the showroom. Now at least $20k OTR. It would take a miracle to move the last two units considering availability of spares since there are so few units in SG.

    Saw a black X-max along Alexandra Rd today at abt 5.30pm. Nicer to see it in person compared to online. From my rear mirror, I tout it is a T-max until it zoom pass me. Is the rider in this forum? Wanna share your reviews on your bike?

    Default Yamaha X-MAX 400 scooter

    Is X-Max still selling in Singapore? Seems like a good maxi scooter with agility and look.

    Default Yamaha X-MAX 400 scooter

    FYI - Looi Motor said the new 2016 X-Max MomoDesign is ready for sale by end of next month.
    Would there be spare parts issue for maintenance in Singapore?
