This concept model is a fresh embodiment of Yamaha design philosophy that combines the familiar look and feel of a bicycle in a motorcycle. Mounting a world standard 125cc class engine on a slim, lightweight frame, this model is designed to offer good fuel economy with an easy and enjoyable ride.

XTW250 RYOKU (Reference vehicle)
Here is a "SUV motorcycle" with toughness and heavy-duty utility that adds a new dimension to the great mobility and convenience motorcycles are known for. The key concept behind its design is "unrestricted, anytime, anywhere," and has a range of features like a large, high-load, low center-of-gravity rear carrier, a slim, low-mounted large-capacity gas tank, fat tires, rugged chassis guards and removable LED headlights. These features expand its range of uses and give you the performance and operability to go almost anywhere. Here is Yamaha's idea of a dependable partner for people who love motorcycles and the outdoor life, specially tailored for the Japanese market.

It's an "easy on me and easy on the environment" vehicle that will be perfect for those little daily errands around town.

Majesty (Reference vehicle)
This is the latest 250cc Majesty, the epoch-making scooter that expanded the market for large-class scooters.

TMAX (Reference vehicle/Export-spec vehicle)
The engine displacement has been upped to 530cc in this full model change of the popular TMAX, the revolutionary model that pioneered the sporty commuter bike category in Europe. Striving for new heights in product appeal, the engine and drive train that are the spirit of the TMAX have been re-designed along with the suspension to achieve a new level of performance. Styling changes are made for an even more aggressive, sculpted look, while maintaining the iconic "boomerang image" of the TMAX's silhouette.
