Yamaha might be producing a new 3 wheel leaning scoot based on XMAX 300.
They applied for patents covering designs and such.

Sounds interesting I always wanted to try this type of cycle. XMAX a little short on power 28HP or so but who knows.

There's quite a few XMax 300 owners on the Muppets forum might disagree with you there about it being a little short on power.

The XMax 300 is very capable of cruising at our motorway speeds and it's Bluecore engine is very fuel efficient with owners regularly reporting 100 mpg (UK), that's 83 mpg (US). The only criticism from owners seems to be it's poor LED headlights.

It's slowly being acknowledged among the maxi scooter community over here that the new generation of 300cc scooters are the way to go. For a start, being single cylinder they're a lot lighter and there's no problem hauling these bad boys onto their main stand

Old Limey seems to be happily clocking up the miles on his SYM Cruisym 300 round the Yorkshire Dales, and leaving the heavier Silver Wing at home.

First, is Yamaha considering a US release? Second, how much different can it be to a Piaggio MP3? More simple design perhaps? I guess it will be a wait and see for the US. I do like the Xmax 300, and if I decided to go up in size next the Xmax would be on my short list for new scooters.

Not sure if it's going into production or even coming to US.
Patent applied for so most likely it will. 2020 Model  at earliest.

Probably not coming to US as scooter market really dead here right now.....in my mind the 3 wheel leaners are sure safer then the 3 wheel trikes we have in US....and surely more fun to ride.
