FEATURES & BENEFITS

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

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.
