Hong Leong Yamaha has launched the new Yamaha TMAX 560, accompanied by the MT-09 and Tracer 9 GT as teasers
Hong Leong Yamaha Motor (HLYM) has finally revamped its big-bike segment with the launch of three brand new models for the Malaysian market. These models are none other than the 2021 Yamaha TMAX 560, Yamaha MT-09, and the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT.
Kicking things off with the luxury maxi-scooter, the Yamaha TMAX 560 brings superior styling and performance into the middleweight scooter segment. Its sharp external sporty yet dynamic features are further complimented with a 562cc inline-two engine that produces around 47hp at 7,500rpm and 55.7Nm of torque at 5,250rpm.
Other highlighted features include:
- Dual disc-brakes with dual-channel ABS
- 41mm USD front fork finished in gold
- TFT multi-function instrument panel
- 2-level D-Mode
- Traction control system
- Smart Key system
- Heated seat & grips
- Electronic adjustable windscreen
- Cruise control + more
HLYM has priced its all-new 2021 Yamaha TMAX 560 at RM72,288 (excluding insurance, road tax, and registration). Two colours are up for grabs - Power Grey and Tech Kamo. This maxi-scooter is now readily available at all Yamaha big bike authorised dealers nationwide.
To accompany the Yamaha TMAX 560 official launch, HLYM also unveiled the all-new 2021 Yamaha MT-09. This latest-generation 'Master of Torque' was launched globally in October last year and it's actually a whole different machine built from the ground up.
While the overall MT design DNA has been retained, the new MT-09 carries much bigger firepower in the form of an 890cc inline-three engine that produces 117hp and 93Nm of torque. It's basically a newer yet lighter engine thanks to new pistons, conrods, camshafts, and crankcase. For those who are interested, the new MT-09 will only arrive at showrooms starting November.
HLYM also took the opportunity to introduce the new 2021 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT (will also be available in showrooms starting November). This latest evolution sport-tourer comes with a lot of new things, including its engine, electronic riding aids, exterior design, and more.
Firepower comes in the form of an 890cc CP3 inline-three engine that produces 117hp, which is the same unit found in the new MT-09. Its electronics are upgraded thanks to the new addition of a six-axis IMU plus lean-sensitive rider aids inspired by the brand's top-of-the-line superbike, the Yamaha YZF-R1M.
More details will be shared soon regarding the MT-09 and Tracer 9 GT once the official prices are announced by the folks from Hong Leong Yamaha. Until then, enjoy the readily available Yamaha TMAX 560 priced at RM72,288.
