On 1985 the original V-Max become the motorcycle world. Our engineers took a big dose of the original “Mad Max” DNA then added a bunch of Yamaha’s latest sport bike technologies like our chip controlled variable intake stacks,with engine Type 1679cc liquid-cooled 65° V-4, DOHC, 4 valves/cylinder, a new high tech fuel injection system and our famous fly by wire throttle. The result is stunning. The legendary sound, engine character and amazing acceleration are all part of the 2009 design but there is a twist. The new VMAX offers truly sporty handling, thanks to its new lightweight aluminium chassis and fully adjustable suspension. We even improved rider comfort.
