We have seen other manufacturers launch Maxi-scooter in India like Suzuki which launched Burgman and Aprilla which launched SXR 160 However, it’s very unlikely that Yamaha will launch the XMax 250 in India. The reason being is the price.  The XMax 250 , in Indonesia, is priced at IDR 62,000,000 (roughly Rs. 3.22 lakh). When we compare it with others, Suzuki Burgman is priced at ₹86,364 and on the other hand, Aprilia SXR 160 is priced at ₹1,28,885. so considering the competition, the XMax is priced on the higher side.
