Dynamic new design

TMAX comes to the streets with an even more dynamic and forceful new look. Slanted dual LED headlights feature new 'eyelids' – while its curved LED position lights and LED taillights with separate flashers reinforce the bold new style. A more upswept muffler gives a sportier look – and the restyled boomerang side motifs bear witness to the pure TMAX DNA.
