Now here is a bike with presence. The V-MAX is a ridiculously quick, torquey V4 from Yahama. The V-MAX is famous for having the ‘V-BOOST’ system, which was a set of butterfly valves in the intake manifolds that increases the fuel flow at 6000rpm, which added a claimed additional 10% of power to the beast. Yamaha was reluctant to have this feature enabled until 1996, and being a 1997 model this means this is one of the first models with the full 140bhp motor. And what a motor it is, pushing out so much power and torque that a shaft drive and specialist tyres had to be used to get the most of it. The V-MAX has a reputation of having immediate but extremely smooth torque from tick-over, and a massive burst of grunt again at 6000rpm as the V-Boost kicks in.

When this bike originally came out, there was just nothing like it in terms of power or acceleration. The V4 configuration was unique for this kind of bike, and so despite the bike’s handling shortcomings this bike still sold in the bucket-loads. The motor was so ahead in terms of power delivery that if it was released today this bike would not be out of place.

The V-MAX is designed to draw attention everywhere it goes, and the engine if the focal point of every part of this machine. The styling is extremely functional, with a gloss black paint and polished metal fins. In fact, every part of the bike is either gloss black or a polished chrome, and they define its style and give it a really mean and aggressive look. This bike has a lot of presence, and gets looks wherever you go. It has a reputation of being a handful. In fact, this bike is actually quite flexible if needed. On the one hand it is a hard edged street thug, but treat the throttle gently and you’ll find a pretty capable tourer.

The example we have is a full power 1997 model. It has a criminally low 9705 mls indicated- not even broken in yet. This bike has a lot of potential and really is what you make it. There is plenty of c custom build parts for this bike, and the things you can do with this machine are endless. Strap a super charger on it, have it bored further. The options are endless. This bike is in near perfect condition, with no marks or corrosion.

The bike has a cult following, and for good reason. People love these bikes for their single mindedness in their vision. It really needs a buyer who will understand and respect this bike for what it is. The V-MAX is what you make it, so treat the throttle with respect and you’re guaranteed to have acres of fun.
