All New Yamaha NMax was officially introduced at the end of 2019.

Compared to the predecessor model, the latest generation design is clearly more beautiful. Not only that. Updates regarding the power supply until the features are also improved. Yes, more than enough differentiation as a comparison to the old NMax 2020.

All New Yamaha NMax launched at the end of 2019

The difference is so many, this is a comparison of the new Yamaha NMax and the O

The preamble about changing the Yamaha NMax design is immediately visible on the face area. The Mika headlamp in the latest version actually has a line pull that matches the previous version. It's just that the formation belonging to the latest NMax is now made smaller. For the type of lamp itself, it still uses LEDs. However, the aggressive impression is clearly offered by NMax because it has received an affix in the form of a list.

Naturally, if finally alignment also occurs on the front body cover. Just look at the part under the main light which has a bigger panel than before. While in the old Yamaha NMax, the wide lamp house is visible because it is integrated with the twilight lights. That is also the reason why the cover underneath is small.

The All New Yamaha NMax design is more handsome and sexy.

Yamaha Indonesia also seems to be free to translate the form of a sharp face cover. This can be done because there is a relocation of the turn signal. This difference is clearly significant because the new NMax turn signal is put down more and more minimalist. In contrast, the turn signal on the old Yamaha NMax is not far from the headlamp. Unfortunately, even though it has changed positions, the type of Yamaha NMax 2021 turn signal is still a yellow bulb. The changes on the face are then finalized with a windshield that is more dynamic than before.

The side body was also touched. Even if you compare the two, there is an impression that the new NMax looks slimmer. The reality is not so. After all, the body, especially the body leading to the taillights, is curved. While in the old NMax, this section only had a modest curve.

This is the difference between the new and old Yamaha NMax designs.

We think Yamaha Indonesia chose this form because of the new NMax brake light design. Similar to the front, this NMax taillight also has a smaller size. The brake light itself is LED, unlike the old NMax which is still a bulb. In fact, we think the stern shape of the All New NMax is much sexier than before. Especially with the shape of the fender like that. Agree?

All-round cockpit

Apart from the matter of the body, the novelty comes when you look at the steering area. All-new cockpit treats served by the brand-new Yamaha NMax. His meter panel now feels wide because it is no longer confined by a round frame like the previous NMax. The fundamental indicator is fully displayed against the background of the negative display. Meanwhile, for indicators marked with lights, move to the top of the main screen.

The novelty is visible because in both sections there is now some additional information. On the meter panel, an indicator for example, the VVA (variable valve actuation) symbol will light up when the technology on the mechanical heart is active. There you can also see the connection between the smartphone and NMax. Marked by the appearance of the smartphone battery logo and App.

All New Yamaha NMax presents a cockpit design along with new features

While above the main screen, there is an indicator Traction Control System (TCS), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Stop & Start System (SS) to the phone symbol. You can see for yourself too, in this section there are no more buttons to adjust the screen display like in the old NMax. It's not removed, because the control button on the latest NMax is now moving to the left handlebar area. Simple and effective because it makes it easier for the rider to change information, without having to take his hands off the wheel.

There is something new on the right handlebar. Here, there is already an engine shut-off button. Intended to optimize the use of All New Yamaha NMax fuel because the engine will automatically shut down when idle for 3-5 seconds.

Minimal Change in Driving Position

In fact, the new impression about the cockpit view is also followed by a change in driving position. In plain view, there is no difference. After all, the multilevel seat model used by the old NMax is still carried by the new NMax.

But there is one thing. There is a difference in dimensions and wheelbase between the new and old NMax. Likewise with the seat height and the distance under it. All New NMax has a count of 765 mm and 124 mm. While the old Yamaha NMax was set to 765 mm and 135 mm.

Even though there is a change in driving position, Yamaha NMax can still be driven with a relaxed leg position.

Especially in the middle, NMax feels fatter. Understandably because this type of fuel tank has a capacity of 7.1 liters. Yes, an increase from the old NMax which was still 6.6 liters. This change also makes the footrest on the new NMax a little narrower.

Even so, it does not reduce the ergonomics of the feet when changing positions. Please be aware too. The new model's weight has also increased significantly, from 127 kg (old model) to 132 kg. Still, there are no significant obstacles to overcome this weight, because of the lower distance under.

Replaced the engine innards, the output is not how much

One of the added values ​​of the All New Yamaha NMax is said to be in the engine sector. The basic mechanical heart is still a single cylinder SOHC type with a capacity of 155 cc and VVA technology. However, for the innards, especially the piston is claimed to have used the Yamaha R15.

Even this substitution has an impact on changing the compression ratio from the previous 10.5: 1 to 11.6: 1. However, the power generated by the All New NMax is only 15.3 PS @ 8,000 rpm. Just up 0.3 PS from the old NMax (15 PS @ 8,000 rpm). There was even a decrease in the torsional moment note. Previously (on the old NMax), the torque was written as 14.4 Nm at 6,500 rpm. Meanwhile, the All New NMax only achieved 13.9 Nm in the same round.

Engine Comparison

The New Generation Yamaha NMax Features Abundant

Maintenance recommendations, fuel consumption, malfunction notifications, Eco Riding information, Revs Dasboard to parked motorbikes.

Price Difference is insignificant

Conversely, you cannot have these features when buying an old Yamaha NMax. For the basic variant, it still uses a conventional magnetic lock system. Even when proposing the top type. The only difference lies in the ABS brakes. The only advantage of the two older NMax variants was price.

In the product catalog of Yamaha brand holders, Yamaha NMax is still sold at Rp. 28.545 million. Meanwhile, the ABS type is pegged at IDR 32,265 million with the status on the road in Jakarta. In fact, there is a difference compared to All New NMax, although in our opinion it is not much. For example, in the lowest type, the tag is Rp. 29,750 million. Then for the All New NMax Connected ABS, Rp.33,750 million was released. You also have another option by choosing a new NMax because there is an All New NMax Connected available for sale for Rp.31 million.
