A new V-Max will be shown to the world in a few days, according to press reports, and it will be a powerful upgrade over the original.
A V-four engine of 1800 cc or larger capacity will produce more than 200 hp, if reports are correct. The 2009 Max will leap through a quarter mile in under 10 seconds, making it quickest production motorcycle on, or off, the planet.
A hefty aluminum frame is one of the important upgrades to be expected.
There’s more to come on this, but Yamaha won’t officially open its mouth until June 4.
