2013 Yamaha VMax VMX17

The ultimate power cruiser delivers unmatched performance and style. There’s simply nothing else like it in the world….

Unlike any other motorcycle available today, the 2013 Yamaha VMAX is truly in a class of its own. The awesome acceleration and muscular beauty combines with sporty handling and Yamaha’s latest electronic engine management technologies to offer an incredibly exhilarating riding experience.

All Muscle. All Brains.

The 2013 Yamaha VMAX is the ultimate fusion of brawn and brains. The unique features of this iconic beast are richly blended with advanced sportbike technology and forward thinking style. It all adds up to a machine with immense performance and visual power. The 2013 V-Max truly is in a class by itself.

You ride muscle bikes for very visceral reasons – the dominating growl of the engine, the knowledge that vast power is yours to easily control, the quiet awe of passers-by. The VMAX delivers all of these and more.

This radically-styled muscle bike became an instant legend when the first versions rolled onto the streets and drag strips in 1985, and the current incarnation continues those traditions of brawn and beauty, with massive, muscular design to match the vast power of the engine.

Ride one today to experience astonishing power in a domineering frame, and the simple pleasure of riding one of the most iconic muscle bikes around.

The legend continues.

In ’85 the original V-Max turned the motorcycle world on its ear. Our engineers took a big dose of the original “Mad Max” DNA then added a bunch of Yamaha’s latest sport bike technologies like our chip controlled variable intake stacks, a high tech fuel injection system and our famous fly by wire throttle. The result is the next generation VMAX. The legendary sound, engine character and amazing acceleration are all part of the latest design but there is a twist. The VMAX offers truly sporty handling, thanks to its lightweight aluminium chassis and fully adjustable suspension. Scorched any pavement lately?

VMAX, Power, Performance, Adrenaline

This fast and monstrously powerful machine continues in the traditions of the original VMAX from 1985, with head-turning looks and a distinctive growl.

The current incarnation puts a bigger engine in a more compact chassis to give awesome acceleration and precise handling. It comes with a 1,679cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke V4 engine that delivers huge torque and gives the rider previously unimaginable levels of power.

And that power is all contained within a dramatic, black, low-profile aluminium frame with giant front forks and massive, aggressively-styled aluminium air intakes. This is a muscle bike for the 21st century

A legend reborn

Ever thought how hard it would be to make a sequel to a legend? Your design would have to reiterate the original mission statement, then forge a bold and captivating new personality (while still respecting certain styling expectations the market will have). You’d have to eclipse all previous parameters of performance, and finally, get these goals to crystallise into a single design so expertly as to create a motorcycle the likes of which the world has never seen – like the 200ps, 166 Nm Intelligent Monster you see here. A musclebike of immense presence and value, with awesome acceleration and incredible control, VMAX will provide a select few riders with sensations and emotions that others can merely dream about.
