Yamaha will Nmax 125 and his double Ocito Landing Stage at MBK have early Concessions July in the French. ABS as standard DNA tariff Max and family of attack: arguments that might Tickle Honda PCX will there where it is sensitive. But the latter is in does not count, is step that wants bestseller. So, which channel?
Already star in Indonesia where is the product and model available from February 2015, Yamaha will Nmax is like Honda PCX (I built in Thailand) a global emerging countries intended product as in Europe. All are two designed according to the philosophy “low-cost premium ‘, namely one quality level and the same very high efficiency for a content rates a possible challenge precisely rendered by this international and large volumes of production distribution.” Honda launched the dance so in 2010 with the PCX himself and not deceived. Yamaha, which had aborts her scooter segment of the urban of entrance of range, and between thus turn and as nose are competing historical who attacked him this year on the niche of the athlete with the Forza GT 125. For sport, the brand with the tuning forks knows, and thats good benjamin in the Max family that Nmax new perch.

STYLE & DESIGN

First argument therefore, the Nmax is distinguished by a sporty design much more aggressive than that of the PCX, while in front, more slender curves to the back, so that the bow of the Nmax seems a little truncated. The template of the PCX at first glance is more rewarding. To the handlebar, two philosophy: a handlebar chrome ‘naked’ for the Honda reminiscent of a custom, something enclosed and signed of the tuning forks for the Nmax, inheritance requires. This is cleaner, but it’s less original. On the Yamaha, the leds are on the programme for dipped-beam headlamps, but the pilots remain standard, yellow lights in addition. The light signature of the PCX brand more its presence. The high range of the Nmax finish reveals still many screws, while the PCX is in lets see one at the base of the saddle, as it also topstitched and non-slip. Finally, the handle maintenance of the PCX is particularly well integrated and acted Platinum Series top-box, which is not the case on the Nmax.

ERGONOMICS – COMFORT &  PROTECTION

Ergonomics is little or less identical on two scooters. The Nmax has a handlebar slightly more low and narrow for a position maybe a little more on the front. Accessible to smaller without problems thanks to their low, thin stools, both reserve yet phenomenal space for large stencils, which up to 1.85 m suffer no gene at the levels of the knees. The footsteps of the Nmax offer more room in the front, but those of the PCX allow to put both feet further back, and his saddle allows more recoil while better shimming the lower back. Question comfort, it is the Honda which stands out, with a soft seat and the softer suspensions for lumbar (though a little bouncing). Same for the passenger, a little better hosted with a seat and the wider foot. Level protection, we are not on the GT, however a few centimeters over the PCX deck offer more on the calves.

PRACTICAL  ASPECTS

Here again the advantage to the PCX. If the volume of the two chests is almost identical, accepting a large jet or even a full small more some deals, the hold of the Honda is more scalable because more elongated, and more accessible. The saddle held mid-term can be tilted to rest on the handlebars, leaving gaping chest. On the Nmax, retained by a spring it bar a little access to the cargo bay. In it, the helmet should be placed upside down, Cap resting on the bottom of the box, because saddle below is little dug. It stores can more easily be his helmet that in the Honda where to force a little to close the saddle, but the helmet may be damaged since the bottom of the box is not carpeted. In addition, the PCX has a box closed glove compartment (but without lock) with 12 volt outlet, where the Nmax offers only a simple open pockets. Simplicity reigns supreme as the standing of the latter, while the PCX has all the same warning (and of the Idling Stop button, we will return). On the other hand, the Nmax, minimalist and modern instrumentation with its unique digital dial, info provides additional (trips to interview for the belt and the drain, a second partial trip, instantaneous consumption in addition to the average conso…).

ENGINE  SPEC

Blue Core against eSP on the ring! Yamaha strenna here the first single cylinder for scooter equipped with a variable distribution, system to provide the best possible answer regardless of the regime while optimizing consumption. Other technologies like the reduced friction contributing, this was already the case on the first enhanced Smart Power  Honda in 2010, just as the lateral positioning of the radiator for purposes of compactness. If both offer liquid-cooled, and their values are equivalent in terms of power and torque, the mono of the PCX remains 2-valve while the Nmax has 4. The latter should also be fetching the maximum torque a bit higher, at 7250 RPM. In fact, the PCX WINS by a hair at startup (7.7 s 0-100 metres standing start), and always amazes by its reactivity at low revs. The Nmax is not far away however (7.9 s), but mainly makes up later with a more than taken hair to mi plan and a maximum speed slightly higher (110 chrono against 103 in this test). This can rely if it comes to portions of highways regularly, but this is not their primary purpose.

On the side of conso, advantage to the PCX with 2.8 l / 100 km and a range of 280 km, and 3.1 l for the Nmax with a range of 210 km which displays only 6.6 l in the tank against 8 for Honda. A Sparrow so for the latter, appetite diminished again by Idling Stop, the Stop & Start home perfectly system developed. It is happily to silence provided by stopping the engine to fire, although this eSP is particularly discreet, where Yam is more expressive. One may think that the sound worked for mark belonging to the family Max. With respect to maintenance, belt and drain to 24,000 and 8000 km for the PCX, a bit earlier on the Nmax 6000 and 18 000 km.

BEHAVIOR & PERFORMANCE

It is above all in the city that they Excel by their agility and their effectiveness, highlighted through their featherweight and engine performance. On one as on the other hand is a child clearly. Purposes the PCX tires give it a superior vivacity despite its wheels in 14 inch diameter ensuring for their part stability. On the other hand, the wide tires on rims 13-inch the Nmax contribute to the rigour of the entire chassis of the Yamaha, which is nothing clumsy. Simply, we feel there also the sporting legacy of the Max family, combining frame and rigid suspensions. For the benefit of road holding, unflappable (especially at high speed), and at the expense of comfort and elasticity. This tells proportionately. Same for braking, a notch above for the Nmax, which highlights of course his ABS series, his feeling, its power and its determination at the top. The PCX does not demerit her rear drum with his braking coupled with the left lever, front only showing itself very progressive and less dosed. Add tire IRC of the Honda cannot compete with the Dunlop Scootsmart of Nmax.
