After a series of teasers from Hong Leong Yamaha Malaysia, covers have been taken off the 2022 Yamaha T Max 560, priced at RM72,288 for Malaysia, excluding road tax, insurance and registration. There are two colour choices available – Tech Kamo and Power Grey, while every purchase of a TMax 560 in Malaysia comes with a special Selangor Pewter keychain and brake disc lock.
First introduced internationally in 2019, the TMax 560 comes with several improvements over the TMax 530, including engine displacement enlarged to 563 cc from 530 cc. However, the two-cylinder DOHC mill in the TMax produces only 2.6 hp more than the 530, with a claimed 47.6 hp at 7,500 rpm and 55.7 Nm of torque at 5,250 rpm with power going to the rear wheel via an automatic transmission and belt drive.
Styling remains as sporty as ever, which Yamaha claiming all the bodywork on the TMax 560 is new except the fairing. A close examination reveals turn signals now integrated with the headlight while the tail light now comes in a new shape.
Along with these changes, the seat has been redesigned to improve ergonomics on the TMax and increase comfort. Other items carried over from the outgoing TMax include twin 267 mm diameter brake discs in front, 15-inch wheels and 15-litre fuel tank.
A long list of standard equipment is provided with the TMax 560, including all round LED lighting, smart key, TFT-LCD instrument panel, traction control and riding modes. Also standard is an electric windshield, cruise control, heated grips and seat as well as adjustable rear suspension.
