Buyers will be able to place their orders from 1st September 2009 with the first units being delivered in November 2009.

Power. Adrenaline. Acceleration

The VMAX is famous for its incredible acceleration, provided by the 1,679cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke V4 engine. The visually intimidating power plant delivers 147.2 kW (200 PS) at 9,000 rpm and a huge torque output of 166.8 Nm (17.0 kg-m) at 6,500 rpm.The Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) assesses the engine’s running conditions every millisecond, so the system responds instantly to the rider. The Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) delivers strong performance right through the rpm range.

For the rider, this means unimaginable levels of power and instant pick-up at all engine speeds, making the VMAX a top performer on the drag strip and the open road. The VMAX is a dramatic machine. Its black, low-profile aluminum frame spars arc forcefully across the top, while the giant tubes on the front forks are like nothing else seen on any other bike. Its unique character is further emphasized by four massive, aggressively styled, hand-finished aluminum air intakes. The front and rear suspension come with the full adjustability more common on Super sport models and offer outstanding road holding.

The 2009 V-Max includes:

  • An all new, 1,679cc liquid-cooled, 65 degree V-Four powerplant that produces 197.4 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque at the crank
  • A slipper clutch
  • An EXUP valve-equipped 4-1-2-4 exhaust system
  • A large tachometer with a big shift light
  • An all-new aluminum chassis and swingarm
  • Anti-lock brakes with wave type rotors
  • A titanium oxide coated 52mm fork
  • Available carbon and touring aftermarket accessories

The 2009 Yamaha V-Max production run will be limited to only 2,500 bikes, and will include a limited edition, numbered commemorative plate. Retail delivery will begin around late October/early November, and orders will be accepted until then.the 2009 Yamaha V-Max will be priced at $17,990.
65 degree V with centre cam chain

One of the major goals of the new VMAX design team has been to keep the new engine’s physical dimensions as compact as possible. Despite the fact that the all-new VMAX engine features a 40% increase in cubic capacity compared to the existing model (1,679cc vs 1,198cc), the new V4 powerplant’s overall dimensions are remarkably compact.

In order to keep the new engine’s front-to-rear length as short as possible, it adopts a 65 degree V bank, compared to 70 degrees on the original VMAX. This narrower angle between the massive cylinders serves to concentrate mass for more neutral handling performance, and makes the new powerplant 27mm shorter (from front to back) than the original model.

As well as the significant space savings achieved by the use of the innovative new combined chain and gear cam drive and 65 degree V layout, the use of a centrally located cam chain helps to minimize the new engine’s width. Despite the fact that the bore dimensions on the new larger-capacity VMAX are over 18% larger than its predecessor, the new engine’s overall width is approximately the same as the current model, and overall height is only 6.5 mm taller.
