Specs and first pics: 2009 Yamaha V-Max


With a 210bhp V4 between its... frame spars, the 2009 Yamaha V-Max is ready to come out and play. Oh yes, this bike will kick some ass...

The first pics of the much-awaited Yamaha V-Max are now out, and we must say the bike looks quite all right. This time around, Mr Max is fitted with an 1800cc V4 that makes about 210 horsepower. Yeah, that’s right, 210bhp – almost 70bhp more than what the first 1984 V-Max had.

The V-Max’s all-new 70-degree V4 engine is also likely to feature a sophisticated VTEC system, electronic ride-by-wire and other high-tech bits. It won’t be cheap though – the 2009 V-Max is expected to cost more than US$22,000.

More pics and details soon…

Now it needs a turbo to get to the "Ghost Rider" level. Easily 600hp with nitrous.
