For those that think Yamaha’s Xmax 300 could do with some improvements, then look no further than the Xmax 300 Roma Edition. This special version, called the Roma Edition, is only available in Italy and limited to 130 units. The limited variant was created to pay homage to Italy's many frontliners, being one of the countries worst hit by the pandemic.
The special edition was designed by the Yamaha R&D division in Europe in Gerno di Lesmo in Monza, Italy. It is only available in one color, white. The most distinctive feature of this are the decals that depict graffiti, names of Roman streets and the city’s most iconic landmark, the colosseum.
Besides the decals, the bike also gets some custom touches like a smaller windscreen and aluminum footrests. Besides the aesthetic touches, the rest is standard Xmax 300 equipment.
It’s powered by a 292cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which produces 28-PS at 7,250rpm and 29-Nm at 5,750rpm. It’s paired to an automatic transmission. Bumps are taken care of telescopic forks upfront and twin shocks at the rear. It rides on 15-inch wheels with tubeless tires in front and 14-inch wheels with tubeless tires in the rear. It has disc brakes at both ends governed by 2-channel ABS and traction control.
The Xmax is also fitted with LED lighting, a 12v power socket, and underseat storage for two helmets. The standard Xmax 300 is available in the Philippines for PhP249,000. This special edition, however, is sold for € 5,999 euros (PhP336,000). Perhaps we’re better off just buying those parts separately and make our own decals for a Manila edition.
