1994 Yamaha V-MAX

Description

The V-Max was designed by Atsushi Ichijo in a team led by Akira Araki with input from Ed Burke and John Reed.

 

Upon its release in 1985, the V-Max garnered instant critical acclaim and earned the title ‘Bike of the Year’ from Cycle Guide. Sold both in Japan and abroad, the V-Max was sold with only minor modifications from the 1985 model year until the 2007 model year. The V-Max was noted for its quick acceleration, but was also criticized for its poor cornering ability and soft suspension.

 

Until 2008, the original V-Max was offered for sale through the Star Motorcycles division of Yamaha Motorcycles. Apart from a minor freshening to the bike’s specifications in 1993, when the bike gained a larger-diameter fork to minimize high-speed wobbling and drift, four-piston brake calipers, and other handling and safety related upgrades, the 2007 V-Max was almost the same as the original 1985 version

 

This beautiful 1997 model V-Max has been in the custodianship of just one owner from new and is presented extremely well, and offered with a V5 document for onward registration.
