The Yamaha VMX1200 V-Max handles like a drunk office girl on a photocopier…and is just as dangerous. The frame seems to flex, the back end squirms under the engine’s power and the front end loads up with the Yamaha VMX1200 V-Max’s substantial 280 kg wet weight under braking. In a word, scary!!! And that’s why we love it!
The Yamaha VMX1200 V-Max has a beautiful, almost liquid power delivery from just above tickover. The Yamaha VMX1200 V-Max motor puts a grin on the face of the most jaded speedfreak. It punches you in the guts with its sheer torque.
