On July 27, 2016, Yamaha Motor Taiwan (YMT) announced the "Axis Z" standard scooter equipped with a new engine.

Along with featuring the Blue Core engine and achieving great fuel economy, design consideration that include the 37.5-liter under-seat utility compartment capacity and adoption of a large seat together with putting the dry weight at 95 kg round out functions and features that appeal to customers, and are aimed at making this scooter Taiwan's next-generation No. 1 popular model.

To communicate these features to the media in an easy-to-understand way, the product-launch presentation included explanations from engineers and a cutaway Blue Core engine on display, with Taiwan's well-known TV-commercial personality Mr. Pxmart making a guest appearance. Mr. Pxmart compared the amazing size of the utility compartment with a watermelon, effectively communicating just how big it is.

The new scooter also earned high acclaim from members of the media for its class-top fuel economy and storage space.
