Yamaha launches 2022 XMAX ABS Darth Vader Limited Edition in Brazil


Yamaha has launched in Brazil the 2022 XMAX ABS Darth Vader Limited Edition, its 250cc ‘premium’ scooter, which arrives with graphics inspired by the most powerful villain in the Star Wars franchise. The price of this edition, which is exclusive to Yamaha Brasil, starts at R$28,590 + shipping (about US $ 5,563).

The 2022 Yamaha XMAX ABS Darth Vader Edition is available in black with red graphics that capture the essence of the armor of one of the greatest (if not the greatest) villains of all time.

Despite the exclusive graphics, the model remains with the same mechanical set, without any changes. It has the brand’s good 250cc engine, ample space under the seat, sophisticated design and is the only one in its category with traction control.

The Yamaha XMAX ABS sold in Brazil is a 250cc version of the XMax 300 (300cc), made for some countries, mainly where there is a cylinder capacity restriction in the drivers license. This is not the case in Brazil. The company preferred to use a smaller engine to reduce costs.

It has a sporty and dynamic design, with dual LED headlights (in fact, the lighting is Full-LED), aerodynamic fairing and boomerang-shaped side panels. In addition, it is equipped with a motorcycle-type front suspension.

Other highlights of this scooter are: ample space under the seat, with capacity for two helmets and other objects, ‘smart key’ system for keyless start, premium seat with independent backrest, 12 V socket, instrument panel with LCD screen in the center, ABS brakes and traction control.

The engine is a 249 cm³ single cylinder with liquid cooling, capable of generating up to 22.8 HP of maximum power and 24Nm / 2.4 kgfm of torque. The transmission is automatic CVT and the fuel tank capacity is 13 liters.
