2008 VMAX

Collection items

(2008 / Production Model)


This is the successor to the original VMAX that was inspired by American drag racing, where the only consideration is straight-line speed, and it created a whole new category for motorcycles with its debut in 1985. Building on and refining the widely-praised dynamic styling of the original, the VMAX features a larger 1,679cc V4 engine and an overall design concept that also makes it enjoyable in more than just straight-line performance. It is one of the flagship models that represent Yamaha motorcycles.
