Description

  • Power Unrelenting
    The ultimate power cruiser delivers unmatched performance from its 65-degree, four-valves-per-cylinder, 1679cc V-four—producing eye opening amounts of perfectly controllable acceleration, flowing from a compact engine that looks as powerful as it is.
  • Advanced Ride-by-Wire Throttle
    Downdraft four-bore fuel injection with YCC-I® intake technology and YCC-T® fly-by-wire throttle provide awesome acceleration throughout the broad powerband.
  • High-Tech Aluminum Chassis
    Lightweight aluminum chassis puts the engine low and forward for mass centralization, resulting in a machine designed to handle curves as well as straightaways.
  • Performance Technology
    Borrowing liberally from advanced sportbike technology, VMAX® features a slipper clutch, wave-style brake discs, ABS, and complete suspension adjustability front and rear.
  • Unmatched Fit and Finish
    Functionality and forward-thinking style uniquely combine with features like oxidized-titanium-coated 52mm front fork tubes, magnesium engine side covers, fluorinated polyethylene fuel tank and the organic electroluminescence multifunction display.

Engine:

  • Power Unrelenting
    The thunderous 1679cc, 65-degree, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected four valves-per-cylinder, DOHC engine pumps out astonishing power to reinvent the VMAX legend. You’ve never experienced anything like it.
  • Variable Length Intakes
    The superbike-proven Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) switches nearly instantaneously between 150mm and 54mm height intake funnels as needed for a broad powerband that delivers optimum performance at any rpm.
  • Ride-by-Wire Throttle
    Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T), the fly-by-wire system, delivers optimum acceleration under all conditions.
  • Race-derived Combustion
    Engine combines four-valve technology with a high 11.3:1 compression ratio, forged aluminum pistons and NGK® Iridium spark plugs with R1-type direct ignition coils to extract maximum horsepower from the fuel charge.
  • Compact Cam Drive
    Cams are driven by a combined chain and gear system to precisely control valves while keeping cylinder heads remarkably compact for such a large displacement engine.
  • Slipper Clutch
    Hydraulically activated clutch includes racetrack-proven ramp-type slipper clutch system that makes braking from speed while downshifting smoother.
  • Robust Five Speed Transmission
    Five-speed transmission has superbly spaced gear ratios to take full advantage of the engine’s awesome power in straight-line acceleration or through the canyons.
  • Unique Shaft Drive
    Delivering this power cruiser’s muscle to the street means a beefy shaft drive. Special shaft design includes two cross joints to accommodate the fat 200/50R18 rear tire.
  • High Volume Cooling
    The high-performance engine is cooled by two radiators for efficiency and clean looks. Lubrication is via a simple, reliable wet sump system.
  • V-four Voice
    Four-into-one-into-two-into-four exhaust system with EXUP® delivers a broad, seamless powerband with the right VMAX look… and a sound unlike anything on two wheels.
  • Custom Styling
    The iconic VMAX aluminum intake covers are hand buffed by craftsmen for superb quality and individuality.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • High-Tech Aluminum Chassis
    The chassis is light and compact, with a cast aluminum main frame, Controlled-Fill die-cast and extruded aluminum rear frame and cast aluminum swingarm.
  • Huge, High-tech Fork
    Cartridge-damper-type front forks have substantial 52mm inner tubes with oxidized titanium coating. Forks have both compression and rebound damping adjustability plus spring preload.
  • Fully Adjustable Remote Reservoir Shock
    Link-type Monocross® rear suspension has a remote reservoir and features compression and rebound clickers plus remote preload adjustment.
  • Class Leading Brakes
    VMAX uses Brembo® master cylinders, the front with radial pump master cylinder. Large 320mm wave-style dual front discs are matched to radial-mount monoblock 6-piston calipers. On the rear wheel, there’s a 298mm wave design disc and single-piston caliper. These high-tech brakes also incorporate advanced ABS.
  • Beefy Handlebar
    Tapered handlebar provides a muscular 1-1/8” diameter look at the triple clamp while using conventionally sized controls.
  • Grippy Radial Tires
    18-inch radial tires, 120/70R18 front and 200/50R18 rear, are mounted on cast aluminum five-spoke wheels.
  • Underseat Fuel Tank
    For mass centralization that contributes to the bike’s lean looks, the 4-gallon fuel tank is mounted under the seat, with the filler under the rider’s backrest.

Additional Features:

  • Calculating Power
    The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) uses three microprocessors to control fuel injection, ignition, YCC-T, YCC-I, meters and other electrical components.
  • Drag-style Instruments
    The instrument panel includes an analog, step-motor driven tachometer, and digital speedometer with LED indicator lights. Prominent LED shift timing indicator adds to the performance character of the VMAX.
  • OLED Display
    Organic electroluminescence multifunction display provides a more precise display vs. LCD and includes clock, fuel meter, trip meter with fuel reserve trip meter, transmission gear position, coolant temperature, stop watch, and more.
  • Bright Lighting
    H4 60/55W headlight provides excellent visibility and distinctive style, while the trick-looking LED taillight is light, bright and highly efficient.
