Got a question by William in the Yamaha XMax group:


Hi all, just wanted to ask for advice on Xmax 250&300. Am thinking of buying a xmax but not sure which one to get. I heard that the main differencees between both bikes are that 250 cc is a parallel import whereas 300 cc is agent unit, the price difference as well as the engine difference. Which bike would be the recommended choice to get especially in terms of servicing and repair, which would be better overall for pricel? Thanks for the advice in advance!

Simple answer is - Go for the XMax 300, without a doubt. There is a reason why the XMax 300 is the most popular model on our roads, i'd say almost 95% of all Xmax on the roads are the 300 variant.

Pros of the XMax 300 compared to the 250 or 400:

  • Agent unit
  • Official warranty backed by Yamaha
  • Excellent fuel economy
  • Latest platform, engine, and parts
  • Euro 4 (2021 model onwards will be updated to Euro 5)
  • Plenty of parts and accessories
  • LTA approved exhaust options are available

XMax 250:

  • Created for Malaysia market where their "Class 2B" allows for engine cc up to 250cc
  • Slower than 300, struggles to reach 100km/h or more
  • Lighter than the XMax 300
  • Slightly cheaper road tax
  • Lower resale value (it might cost you MORE in depreciation for a 250 compared to the 300!)
  • Uses older parts from the Yamaha Majesty and XMax 400
  • Minimal/No dealer support as non-agent bike

As bro Abdul Hakim said about the XMax 250,


Dont bother 250. People who buy 250 knows that its hard to even reach above 100km/h. Bike can feel like on stress esp if youre on the heavier side. 250 is not from yamaha agent. 300 is the best. Have power + good fc and agent unit. And never take 400. Old yamaha maejstic engine. Poor fc, heavy and hard to find parts.

XMax 400

  • Oldest of all 3 variants
  • Uses old engine from Yamaha Majesty
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Difficult to find parts
  • Poor resale value
  • Minimal/No dealer support as not official agent bike

Point is, just go for the XMax 300 unless there is a compelling reason otherwise. For those who have bought the 250 or 400, just enjoy your ride!


Btw if you are looking for an XMax, Hong Leong Corp (Yamaha's agent in Singapore) has special pricing for all SBF members, you can contact them below:
