Iwata, 6 February 2015: Back in 1985 Yamaha launched a groundbreaking bike that shocked the world. With its brutal V4 engine, raw style and awesome performance, the original VMAX brought drag-bike levels of acceleration to the street.
30 years on and the latest VMAX is still the ultimate musclebike. With its 200PS 1,679cc V4 engine and advanced aluminium chassis, the next generation VMAX is built to deliver adrenaline-charged performance together with unrivalled street presence.
Now we’re taking the concept one step further with the remarkable 30th anniversary VMAX Carbon. Fitted with exclusive bodywork and thundering Akrapovic slip-on mufflers, this iconic Sport Heritage musclebike has no equal.
