About the 2005-2007 Yamaha VMAX

The first true muscle bike, the V-Max’s asphalt shredding performance has made it a legend. Striking black paint with eye-catching flames on the tank will have people gawking. But hot looks aren’t the only thing the V-Max has going for it. Unleash its 1198cc V-4 and you’ll see why so many accolades have been bestowed upon it.

1198cc liquid-cooled, DOHC 16-valve 70-degree V-4 engine has no equal in its class, pumping out tremendous, hard-hitting power to make it the ultimate quick-accelerating, high-performance king.
Patented Yamaha “V-BOOST” induction, a power-boosting variable intake system, force-feeds massive quantities of fuel into the cylinders via a servo-controlled butterfly valve at 6000 RPM and above.
Four 35mm Mikuni downdraft carburetors ensure seamless, lightning-quick throttle response.
