Iwata, 12 February 2015: To mark the special occasion of the VMAX’s 30th anniversary Yamaha has formed a collaboration with cologne-based German builder JvB-Moto to create a fitting Yard Built tribute to the iconic machine. JvB-moto’s vision for the VMAX Yard Built special was to transfer the stock VMAX into a radical dragster meets café racer concept.
At the front end, a custom-made aluminium mudguard sits below a JvB-moto signature style custom carbon fibre headlight unit integrated into the front forks and Motogadget indicators and above custom carbon wheel covers.
Modified aftermarket clip-on bars are added along with an authentic American dragster rev counter by Autometer. Further custom work includes a beautiful custom carbon tank cover, a heavily modified airbox and electrics and special air intake scoops crafted from stock aluminium units from the original 80’s VMAX.
