EU4-compliant liquid-cooled 125cc engine

The specially designed EU4-compliant engine delivers sporty performance with low fuel consumption and reduced emissions. Using Yamaha's efficiency-boosting 'Blue Core' design approach that reduces power losses, the compact 125cc 4-stroke liquid-cooled engine achieves high levels of torque with outstanding performance and efficiency.

Variable valve actuation for powerful acceleration

Variable valve actuation for powerful acceleration

A key feature that makes the NMAX such a sporty performer is its variable valve actuation (VVA) system. The 4-valve cylinder head uses a special camshaft that enables the engine to operate more efficiently at low and high engine speeds, giving stronger acceleration in all rev ranges, together with good fuel economy.

Sporty and lightweight chassis
